What is the FLOW of your Realtor Day? It is time management. It is energy management. It is the outline for YOUR own Golden Results. There is Learn to Earn time. There is Hour of Power. This is Lead Gen time. There is work on your business instead of in your business time. Then there is appointme...
What are the ACTION PACKED Realtor Learn to Earn Programs for  2014? My three favorites right now, in no particular order, are REM Camp, Paperless Agent and Buffini. Ross Hair, Founder of Real Estate Marketing Camp, is currently hosting a thirty day marketing makeover class. It runs until Oct 3. ...
I have told Margaret that you cannot go wrong with an Active Rain Meet Up off Rt. 100. Even if you go the wrong way you end up by Ann's Dari for Foot Long Double Dogs and a shake in Glen Burnie. Or if you get it right, you end up at Bare Bones off Rt 29 for some of the best ribs ever. What a grea...
How to Import your past Real Estate SALES and LISTINGS into Zillow? I heard about this via Ross Hair at REM so I checked it out this week. I called my Zillow Rep, Travis Roberts, or I was referred to him by our very own Active Rain Blogger Extraordinaire, Margaret Rome. He pro...

I love a good tech tool so this post has my name all over it. RE/MAX Agents have a set of Imprev tools within the website that are available for use. In addition, the local MLS for the D.C. Area has also implemented the Imprev toolset. This gives a new look and feel!  How To Create Real...
I have an email in to Sentrilock already this morning. Here are my questions after installing the app. Does credit card sized key card still have to be renewed regularly?   Is this app for one day codes only or for regular daily use?   Can this be used solely in lieu of credit card sized key card...
This is a good point. There are lots of intangibles during the multiple contract selection process. Size of check, reputation of lender, wording of preapproval letter, settlement date, number and scope of inspections and so on. Even the reputation of the agent is a decision in all the selection v...
Sometimes the garage, basement or shed can be the reason a home is purchased. So spruce it up! I have seen the floors painted, the space decluttered, the shelves straightened just like you would do for the home interior. I have seen these newly cleaned up garages be selected for future work and e...
