ActiveBrad's "TOP FREE Picks"

By
Education & Training with Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus

ChicagoAgentMagazine.com who also runs MiamiAgentMagazine.com contacted me last week, they wanted to know if I would write an article for their magazines this week.  Zipporah Porton, Senior Editor, asked for Active Brad’s Top FREE sites or web-tools for REALTORS®.  WOW!  That's a BIG task.  There are so many FREE websites and applications on the WEB, I felt writing an article like this would be somewhat challenging.  I do love a good challenge, so here's what I came up with.  These are all sites I have personally seen, used and recommended to others in and out of the rain this past year.

TOP FREE Website Picks

Here's a link to the Published Article (PDF)

Since these Magazines obviously don't have links (though they might in the future) I decided to post links to all the sites listed in the article. I even threw in a few extras for all my AR friends. Yes, this took hours to complete, but don't ask me how many. It has taken me all year to build this list, here are my top 150 plus.

Cindy - this post took me about a week to truly complete, but an entire year to gather all the information and sites for this post.  Most certainly one of my most time consuming posts but the most valuable also. :-)

Wow, I don't even know where to start. So many "thank yous" to you!! Brad I had ignored this email, but saved it, for... I don't even know how long. This has tought me to read my emails as they come in, or even glance through the emails, just encase it has something you need. I have had my web-site for 5 years, wasn't to happy with it. I have viewed so many web-site designer, and wasn't to impressed with them. The tools you supply us with. I finally can keep my web-site and have fun with it. You are the best. wow. Only one thing, I need to learn how to work on my web-site. :-) No complaining here I'm going to have fun trying all these sites. :-)

Hi Vickie - thanks for your nice comment.  These should keep you busy and having fun for awhile! lol~ 

I find myself coming back here often, just so I can remember where some of these sites are.  I have about 20-30 more I could add just from the first quarter of this year.  There's just too many cool things available on the web these days.  :-)

Consider this bookmarked.  Very nice, cohesive list of important sites to have at your fingertips.  I was actually surprised at how many of these sites I am familiar with...guess I have learned a lot more than I realized!
