New Media Marketing...
Get to know Rene Fabre
Rene has been a leading participant of the evolving social web environment since its inception. He started his career in the title insurance industry in the mid 1980's and through numerous roles over the years he has been a consistent innovator of new and emerging technologies and marketing programs for real estate professionals.
He was one of the very first to develop a title industry hosted web portal for real estate agents and brokers called WebDesk (1996) and pioneered data driven statistical neighborhood profiles like the RTS (residential transaction study) that analyzed historical home sales trends and forecasted niche farming opportunities and projected current and future home values.
In 2010 Rene turned his career focus back to one of his life long passions, education. As a certified instructor in Washington and Alaska he teaches new media marketing for the First American Title Real Estate School. He gives several popular clock hour classes and workshops including Real Estate in the Social Age, Are You Visible in the 21st Century Phonebook, Mobile Communication Boot Camp, and he’s a frequent guest speaker in the Pacific Northwest on social media marketing for business, web presence development, personal brand development, prospecting strategies and best practices for entrepreneurs who focus their marketing strategies online.
As he travels throughout the region you’ll often find him out and about and sharing coworkers, clients, friends, and small businesses. He loves exploring the community with his trusty iPhone, always on the lookout for stories about the people and places that are the wonderful fabric of life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. An avid writer and blogger you’ll not only find him here on Activerain but on several social web platforms including Tumblr, Blogger, Google+, YouTube, Twitter, Yelp, Linkedin, Pinterest, About.me, Flickr, and FirstAmTech.com...
Via his upbringing and education, Rene is an artist at heart, temperament and practice. He has a great passion for the arts and loves writing, composing, and creating with technology. As he puts it in his own words, “I love my work in the real estate industry. I’ve been very blessed and enjoy the creativity that comes with my work. It is very rewarding to bring value to an industry that I care a lot about. A healthy real estate market is a key essential to every local economy and our quality of life.”
"For me, communities are conversation, and conversation is opportunity."

If you're looking for a guy who can mix it up with people of ALL ages and persuasions, making the social media landscape not only business-friendly but big-time fun, then look no further than Rene Fabre!
I met Rene online doing some virtual meeting research and very shortly he became not only a collaborator in some of my most important testing but a partner in helping real-estate and title folks make sense - and smart use - of real-time virtual meeting tools and all the other social tools, like FB, Twitter and G+.
Rene's smart, quick on the draw, and - most of all - a fine human being to work with.
Rene' is a networking genius. He understands HOW to position within a niche or market - who to connect to and the value to bring. I often come to him with a question or an idea for myself or someone else and within minutes he puts me on the right path.
I am lucky to know him and I whole-heartedly recommend that you get to know him, too. He is a valued asset to my business.
Rene' was a joy to work with, always willing to provide education and taking my endless questions with patience. Knowing Rene' and working with him was a distinct pleasure. I highly recommend him.
I work with Rene', he has a strong commitment to service. He's always helping someone, be it a client or co-worker. Additionally, Rene' has vast experience in our industry and brings that as well as many fresh new ideas to our clients and co-workers. Rene' has personally helped me and many others enter the world of social media and marketing. Rene' truly is the best "go to" person and adds huge value to our team.
Rene' is a social media "master". He really understands how to get the most web presence possible to grow your business. He's been a huge help to me.
Rene is a stand up guy. Not only is he very knowledgeable about all there is to know about Internet Marketing, he also is a great guy to know. He is passionate about what he does and he loves to meet other people and talk about his passion. I have learned a lot from just one meeting and would love to have more opportunities to talk to him and pick his brain. He is a one of a kind!
As a teacher, Rene has a gift for making the complex seem simple. He has been intsrumental in explaining the how-to's and why's of enhancing my online presence in today's marketplace. I have seen immediate results personally and for the firm for which I work.
René is one of the rare people in the industry that really walks the walk when it comes to his teachings. To be honest it really isn't teaching that he does, he has more of a conversation with the groups he meets and wants to pass on the knowledge that he gathers day in and day out trying to help agents and mortgage officers take their business to the next level in this age of the internet.
René and I met online and we finally met in person in the spring of 2009 at an event in Portland. I've now been to three of his events and have to say each time we have taught each other something new. He is a person that is never satisfied with his present online image or knowledge and is always searching for more and then shares it with the world!
If you ever get a chance to attend one of René events, I suggest you do, because you will learn something about web 2.0 and how it can increase your business, no matter what business you are in.
If you ever get a chance to take one of Rene's classes don't miss out. He changed my whole paradigm with regard to marketing myself on the internet. Thanks Rene!
