The Power of in Selling Your Home

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Assoc

Link to my profile on

Welcome to the first post in my public blog on ActiveRain....

Have you visited ?  This site is now America's #1 real estate resource website.  Richard Barbee (me) is a Premier Agent on Zillow in zip codes 37921, 37922, 37923, and 37934 .

Why do I spend money to advertise on  Here are a few of the reasons:

1. has more traffic than any other real estate-related website

2.  I work in specific zip codes as a real estate broker.  Zillow allows me to advertise in those zip codes only.  This help me target my marketing and avoid wasting money.  I am an expert in Farragut, Bearden, Northshore, Concord, Cedar Bluff, West Hills and a few more.  I can serve residential clients best in those areas.

3.  When I list a home in my preferred zip codes, that listing shows up first and often when potential buyers are searching in that area.  My listings show up first !!!  This is a major advantage to my clients / sellers.

Please consider checking out the link above.  This is my public profile on  You can see my listings and learn more about me.

Welcome.  Im relative new to AR as well and am learning a lot.  I'm glad you have this post because I have a few questions:

I was advertising on Trulia.  Do you think one is better than the other? I did not get any traffic and I'm trying to understand if I did not market correctly or what.  Did you or are you on Trulia as well?

I have never advertised on Trulia, but I can tell you that I am VERY pleased with the response from my ads on Zillow.  I have two 100% ads and 3 50% ads.

In 3 months, I have met 7 new buyers personally and have gotten a 700% increase to my website.

This is the truth.....I just spoke with a million dollar cash buyer three days ago.  She found me on Zillow.

So, I am sold.

I also really like HGTVs .  They have sponsorships also.
