daytona beach real estate agent: Does Your "Professional" Photo Look Like A Facebook Picture? - 08/18/10 08:57 AM
In the last few days, as I've been perusing and commenting on different blogger's posts, I happened to stop in my tracks, as I noticed far too many images that looked like they'd been taken by the same person, while holding the camera at arm's length. They looked more like a picture I would have on my non-business Facebook page. Is it just me, or do these pictures actually lower the level of professionalism on our blogs? Shouldn't a potential client see a quality photo that says "I'm a professional"?
Now I admit that I'm a very visual person. Half the … (79 comments)

daytona beach real estate agent: Embrace Your Unique Gifts, Talents and Abilities. Be the Best YOU, that You Can Be! - 02/22/10 05:48 AM
A little while ago, I read this blog post by Gary Woltal called "Is Your Camel Parked in the Right Desert?". I felt the need to share it, because it spoke volumes to me.
As REALTORS®, most of us are constantly trying to better ourselves. We read and study and learn, with the intention of bettering ourselves, and providing better service to our customers. We even do our required continuing education, plus study for even more real estate education and designations. All this is good for us, and for our real estate customers!
But how often do we blame ourselves for … (4 comments)

daytona beach real estate agent: Real Estate Internet Lead Conversion: My Personal System and Years of Experience - 01/15/10 03:57 PM
Most bloggers have probably read more than their share of posts about internet leads, along with the heated debate of whether or not they're worth paying to receive. Of course, I have a very strong opinion on this topic of "to pay, or not to pay", but I'll leave it out for now. This post is about how I personally convert my internet leads into loyal clients who actually close on real estate transactions.
I should probably state that I've had a personal real estate web site for about 10 years, and I've been blogging and vlogging for 4+ years. So … (13 comments)

daytona beach real estate agent: Real Estate Buyers and Sellers and ALL of Our Prevailing Attitudes - 12/24/09 01:15 AM
Today I’m going to tell a real estate story. This is a story of a hypothetical real estate transaction, and the parties involved. I chose to tell this story in a manner that is obviously slanted toward one side, but that’s not really the point. It could easily be told from a different angle. Regardless, don’t get overly focused on the story of real estate. It’s about people. It’s about attitudes. It’s about the way people have changed in the last few years. It’s about the kind of person you are, or want to be... or DON’T want to be! Hold … (28 comments)

daytona beach real estate agent: Wordless Wednesday: Still Celebrating Christmas! LOL - 12/22/09 05:36 PM

Since my last Wordless Wednesaday post for "Anticipating Christmas (again)" was such a hit (he he) I decided to share two more photos from the series of pictures we took that day, in front of our Christmas tree. The first picture is just another silly pose. The second, well... sometimes there are consequences with too much tomfoolery! Doh!

daytona beach real estate agent: Wordless Wednesday on Lisa Hill's Real Estate Blog: Anticipating Christmas (again) - 12/16/09 02:36 PM

And for all you real estate buyers and sellers out there, what better gift to give your family than a new home for Christmas and the upcoming new year?

daytona beach real estate agent: Speechless Sunday: Oh Christmas Tree... - 12/14/09 01:30 AM
It's (was) Sunday... again... (but I left this in draft mode) =P  So anyway... I'm really enjoying the month of December. In my opinion, December is Christmas ALL month long =D   And I'm not talking about just the presents. And I'm certainly not talking about shopping! (I hate crowds!) Every year, my goal is to finish all my Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving. (I REALLY hate crowds!) Of course, the most important part of Christmas is Christ. But since I don't have a picture of Him, this week's Speechless Sunday (with words) photo is my own Christmas tree =)  I really like … (8 comments)

daytona beach real estate agent: Good Family Christmas Movies Online: Lots of Fun and Good Moral Themes - 12/13/09 02:01 PM
I thought this might be a fun post for the month of December; especially in an economy when many people are saving money by dropping their cable or satellite TV.  The absolute, best replacement for TV (you can watch all your same TV shows, and possibly have access to more than you had before, for free!) is found at www.hulu.com. You can register for free, and add your favorite TV shows to your "queue", then you can watch your shows at your own convenience. Most of the time, your subscriptions will show up in your queue the day after they were … (8 comments)

daytona beach real estate agent: Mid Week Photo Blog on Lisa Hill's Real Estate Blog =) - 11/19/09 05:19 PM
This week's photo is really just a follow-up to this past Sunday's photo. It's the same bird from Sunday's blog post, standing in the shallow water at sunset, taken by my friend Nick (fully copyrighted). In this photo, I LOVE the perfect shadow that's reflecting in the water. And I decided that since I had so much trouble deciding which shot to use last week, I should go ahead and share the other one with you today =D

daytona beach real estate agent: Re: Judge to decide if 9-year-old faces rape trial - 09/29/09 11:08 PM
Well now I've gone and done it. I'm veering waaayyy off-topic in regards to real estate today! Early this morning I stumbled across a bit of news located at the Boston Globe, and was leaving a comment via Digg. After writing the equivalent of a blog, I decided "what the heck... I may as well go ahead and just blog it". So we're NOT discussing real estate in this post; but rather a disturbing occurrence that's unfolding in Utah right now. (I've already Tweeted it and posted it on Facebook... I may as well go all out)
So here it is; … (7 comments)

daytona beach real estate agent: Speechless Sunday: Featuring a Special Guest; My Real Estate Assistant! - 09/06/09 11:26 AM
It's Speechless Sunday again. But this week I'm changing it up a little bit. Instead of a photo, I'm using a short little video. This is my real estate assistant. Well, actually it's only one of them. But both of my assistants are excellent! They go above and beyond my expectations; They lift my spirits when I'm down, and offer encouragement in their own way. So I know you'll enjoy this video of one of them. Enjoy!  (Make sure you have your volume on!)
