technology: My 10 Favorite Real Estate Blogs of 2018 - 07/08/18 07:23 AM

Robert was a a great guest on my former Podcast: The Mail-Right Real Estate Agent Show Episode 134 and then took over my co-host seat on that Podcast, after I amicably left in April of this year to launch my new Podcast: Postcards From Success.

technology: The Plan to Save Real Estate with BuyerHunt.com - 02/17/18 08:29 AM

 
Don't Dream Of A Great Career, Work For It!
 
Greg Hague originally started the STOP ZILLOW campaign that evolved into The Plan To Save Real Estate, which we crowd funded into Buyer Hunt; taking back ownership of our listings and the buyer leads they generate.
 
 
"People crack me up (and scare me with how literal they are), they don't seem to understand the power of a great subject line or tag-line. Do we need to save real estate? Not really, but we do need to recover the ownership of our listings and the buyer leads they generate. Why would you let someone take them … (16 comments)

After years of experience at top companies (Yahoo and eBay), then building and selling two successful businesses (to companies like Zynga), Jon and Kelly set out to do it for a third time. Why?

What Tools or Systems Do You Love –
An ActiveRain Contest
 
Technically this is about three tools, but I’ll lump two together since they are at their foundation, the same product but serve two different users ultimately. I wonder what my grandparents who were licensed Realtors in the 1950's through the 1980's would have thought about these?
