Make sense?

buyer: Website: Mastered. Listings: Gained. - 03/01/18 02:54 PM

Howdy ActiveRainers,
Tim here, with a reality check: your website does not have to be perfect.
But it can be if you "master" a few things.
"Mastering" your website. Cool concept.
But let's break it down, word for word.
Mastering (verb): acquire complete knowledge or skill in (an accomplishment, technique, or art); gain control of; overcome.
Website (noun): a connected group of pages on the World Wide Web, maintained by one person or organization and devoted to a single topic or several closely related topics.
So what will the free WEBSITE MASTERY WEBINAR do? It'll help you:
- MASTER the art of keeping people on your website...
- MASTER your representation as an "ALL things real estate" agent (home selling, home buying, home improvement, home care)...
- MASTER your knowledge and use of cutting-edge real estate technology (automated home seller lead capture included)...
- MASTER the smooth delivery … (0 comments)

buyer: Open House. Close Deals. (A Plan Of Action) - 01/03/18 04:32 PM

Howdy ActiveRainers,
How's 2018 treating you? 
Although I remember reading previous posts containing something to the effect of: "I refuse to do Open Houses" or "Gee, I don't really see the point," I've taken the liberty of revamping one of our previous blog posts and turning it into an infographic (which, as you can see, provides some Open House tips and guidelines). 
So, whether you organize and attend them or not - you likely know somebody who does and might find this useful. ;-)

buyer: Home Buyer Stocking Stuffers (Holiday Tip #6) - 12/15/17 03:18 PM

Hey ActiveRainers,
Going out of your way to send a few quick, personalized home buyer updates (i.e. - listing suggestions that accurately fit their dream home expectations) will underscore your admirable commitment in landing them what they're looking for. 
Delivering HD Photos, accurate listing details (right down to the best schools nearby), critical neighborhood info, and every last option that's up their alley doesn't hurt either. ;-)
