real estate: I made Loopnets Top 100 list! - 01/05/11 01:18 PM
How in the world did a guy from a small family owned company in Kansas City make Loopnet's top 100 list?
Hard Work! is arguably the most important and trafficked website for commercial real estate in the world. Whats more it owns the top search engine ranking for several other categories also. Google search for commercial real estate, investment property or even horse farms or land for sale and pops up somewhere.
I've been a Loopnet user for many years, and I've found it a great source for marketing commercial real estate, equestrian property and investment property. … (3 comments)

real estate: The perfect real estate camera - 12/18/10 02:03 PM
One of my pet peaves is looking for a property for a client and finding that the agent only posted one or maybe three photos. It really baffles me that so many never even bother to post one photo on the MLS.

I know, your busy but really the single most common question from a prospective buyer is always... "Do you have more pictures" !
Many MLS services will allow as many as 25 pictures, some sites allow more. In some cases we are working with properties where it is very difficult to get a decent shot of the property … (4 comments)

real estate: Craigslist Account on Hold? - New Rules! - 11/20/10 12:42 PM
For years I have used Craigslist to advertise all of my listings, both for sale and for rent. I have also often posted my real estate services in the "services" section. A  recent study showed that nearly a third of real estate buyers us Craigslist!
Recently my account was put on hold, after many attempts to correct the problem with nothing but form letters from Craigslist I opened a new account. Within a few weeks that account was also put "on hold" with no notice or explaination.
Frustrated, I tried again to contact Craigslist; even posting questions to there Facebook page... … (29 comments)

real estate: Does Obama need a Brokers License? - 09/22/10 05:12 AM
Since my portion of the commission will be less than that paid to the government under the new Obamacare real estate transfer tax scam, I humbly request that you purchase this house prior to December 31, 2010.
As of today 22 September, 2010 we are reducing the list price to encourage you to make an offer, This substantial reduction from $580,000 to $485,000 is in direct response to our desperate need to sell this house before the Obama real estate transfer tax is imposed, because we understand that the value of the house will automatically decrease by 3.5% on January 1, … (7 comments)

real estate: People Like Experts! :) - 12/15/09 12:21 PM
I have an old friend, he is one of those people who is always a wealth information and advice, often leaving you to wonder why he doesn't take some of his own advice.
He spends hours reading about successful people and how they became successful. Lists, books, blogs, articles, he can tell you more than you ever wanted to know about successful people.
So once in a while he utters something that makes sense, like "People Like Experts"!
He was telling me that just a few weeks ago, and I laughed because so many people claiming to be "experts" are really … (3 comments)
