real estate: Are You So Focused on the Details, You're Missing Business? - 09/06/19 10:03 AM
Do you go to your website every day?
Do you assume a color change on a button will get you more traffic?
Do you worry people will see a general image on a community post and assume that's the house you're selling?
Do you literally want to change 10 tiny details on your website every day?
Do you check your website on a tablet, phone, desktop, friend's phone, friends laptop or iPad every day? 
Then you are not actually focusing on your business. 
(I sound like an infomercial) ... Then you need... 
Just kidding.
But seriously... if you are more concerned about how people view your website and you have … (15 comments)

real estate: Top property hotspots for investment in Australia - 05/29/18 10:40 AM
Top property hotspots for investment in Australia -by Justine Williams
Every smart investor is on the lookout for the next big thing. Wherever you put your hard-earned dollars – whether it’s investing or trading in Australia or overseas – the best opportunities present the chance to improve your financial situation drastically.
When it comes to property, the strength of your investment relies on its location. We probably all know what a nice house looks like – but if it's built in a bad part of town then it’s worth less than if it’s in a property hotspot.
It pays, therefore, to know where these lucrative locations … (2 comments)

real estate: Are You Sure This Business is For You? - 01/30/18 01:56 PM
Lynn Friedman urged me to share my story on AR for the Contest "Advice for New Agents" - I originally posted this on Quora 1/30/2018
Be a real estate agent, they said. It will be fun, they said. Haha. The life of a real estate agent; being your own boss. Doing what you want, when you want, and then getting the big, ol’ fat paycheck at the end of a closing. Sounds great, right? That’s exactly what I thought when I got out of the retail world and decided to be a real estate agent. I mean, I didn’t have to keep the 9 … (23 comments)

real estate: What I Love About Real Estate Agents - 07/18/14 01:38 PM
I got an epiphany tonight; real estate agents lead more 'real' lives than just about anyone. I work from home as most of them do to. And while watching Mr. Mom for upteenthmillion time tonight I see the tragedy and circumstance of not putting family first. Yes, we have to live; yes, we have to make a living; but we also WANT to live and have a life. My father always said that he worked for himself so he could "eat and take time off".... that has never been more powerful a statement then most recently. I realize in this summer … (38 comments)

How Easy is Your Website for Clients? When I first started on ActiveRain I wrote a post entitled: Ok, So You Have a Blog..... Are You Missing the Major Mark Over Here Though? And it’s one of the biggest blunders I think real estate agents make in a website: people have no idea where you are and what you do.
That may seem ridiculous but honestly, I have been to several real estate websites (still) and have no idea where in the world they are or even if it’s a real estate site! If users can’t figure it out when they … (36 comments)
