Margaret Rome shares ideas that have made her business a shining beacon to those who follow her methods.

The Waiting List concept offers other benefits to the REALTOR(R) in terms of Client Relations in my mind. The Waiting List concept says to the Client that EACH Client is important and time is dedicated to EACH Client.  The Waiting List concept says to the Client that his/her needs are important and will not be rushed by the REALTOR(R). Thanks Margaret for your usual good sense!

Social Media Plethora or Perdition What to use first and what to use when via Zintro Infographic on Mashable.com
AR RainCamp 2012 and many other trainings offer us advice on Social Media. What no one can tell us is which is the right path for each of our real estate practices. In fact, we each are the only ones who can decide which one to use and which one to leave for another time. Yet how do we gain the necessary knowledge to make the decisions?

VA LOANS
Bruce Reichstein shares complete information with us about the upcoming changes to VA regulations on October 1, 2011.
As a nation, I believe we owe the men and women who put their lives on the line for us. We owe them a chance to return and begin to get their lives in order. Especially if they have been injured, we owe them "an out-stretched hand" as they come back.
Be sure to share this information with others so our service members who are entitled to these benefits will find out about them.

buckhead atlanta georgia cdpe: I Collect People - Does That Sound Weird? - 09/17/11 01:23 AM
Mike's great idea ... 
If we take Mike's advice, we are certainly going to be happier ourselves. The connections he makes benefit everyone around. He is doing what makes him feel happy and it spreads the joy around his personal world.
After reading his blog, one may see how 'collecting people' increases his 'brand' - that is, Mike is Mike in all areas of his life! 
Wouldn't everyone want to be associated with geometrically progressing joy?
Thanks for the great insight, Mike.

buckhead atlanta georgia cdpe: Do we really need electronic keyboxes/lockboxes? - 09/12/11 07:12 PM
 Dennis Burgess asks an interesting question:
Do we really need electronic keyboxes/lockboxes?
He asks for opinions from anyone except folks who sell them! My answer to Dennis went as follows:
 1.  The electronic lockboxes are a great tool for record keeping.
2.  They notify the listing agent immediately when someone enters.
3.  They avoid the need to go house to house to collect business cards.
4.  They are flexible - can be set for inspections and appraisals.
5.  BEST OF ALL - eliminates the need to call and call and call to get combinations.

 That said -
