Fred Carver, Realtor®, Remax Victoria Gets My Gold Star

Fred Carver, Realtor, REMAX CamosunSometimes this worldwide web, google juiced vehicle can get a little confusing.  Long tails, short tails, wagging tails...  the internet can become a mucky mire of key words and search words. I remember when "tag" was part of the phrase "tag, your it!".  That was way more fun than the present "tag word" definition.  It all starts to sound like "blah, blah, blah".

One of my heros here on Active Rain is Fred Carver, Realtor® with REMAX, Victoria, B.C.  Fred is always thinking.  He's on his A game.  Fred has made a point of figuring out the ins and outs of the internet and search engines, to better raise his profile.  Make no bones about it, Fred's post are continuously showing up #1 on Google searches.  He attributes a lot of his success to Katerina Gassett, but I know that it's Fred's inquisitive mind and his no fear approach to trying out new things that fuels his success.

Can you imagine my surprise and delight, when I received a phone call from Fred a while back.  We had been commenting back and forth on Active Rain, and he knew I was dabbling with video.  He was the first person to suggest I do a tour of one of my staged homes with my new Flip camera.  We chatted a lot about technology, blogging, Active Rain and the new possibilities with video.  Without Fred's ideas and support, I may never have posted my first walk-through video.  Thanks, Fred!

Fast forward to this morning.  I received an email from Fred, suggesting that I add the tag words "Home Staging Vancouver, B.C." to my posts.  He'd noticed I was leaving these out, and wanted to remind me of the importance of ranking high on Google.  I was really touched that Fred would take the time to first, read my posts, second, comment on them, and third, send me input and advice.

I know that Fred has started several groups here on Active Rain, my favourite group being Canadian REMAX (for real estate agents, mortgage brokers, home stagers etc.).  Check out and subscribe to the group - it's a fun, friendly, diverse group, led by my favourite Victoria, B.C. Real Estate Agent, Fred Carver.

Also, don't forget to subscribe to Fred Carver's blog.  He posts beautiful photographs, driving videos of beautiful Victoria, B.C. neighbourhoods, and real estate activity reports.  Oh yeh, and tell him Sally sent you!

Sally,

I do like Fred's very professional posts. That was good advice. I too have been fortunate enough to receive advice from other AR members.

Sally, I remember that You Tube staging tour. I think you were the first stager who did it on AR. I know how you feel when receiving great advice from the other AR member. I had this happened to me too. Roger helped me to edit my website. I had tears on my eyes when he contacted me "just because". AR is a wonderful place.

Brian - You are another member here on Active Rain who is always encouraging.  It's so great when members can help each other out.

Anna - That reminds me, I really should do another video!  This really is a wonderful community, and it's so fun to talk to another A/R member on the phone and receive such great help and advice.  Roger's fantastic, too.

Hi Sally....Gish, I'm blushing...You're way to kind, I just thought I suggest adding Vancouver to your Title might help a little with GOOGLE JUICE for VANCOUVER HOME STAGGER.

Ever since Google Alert send be this Blog Post on Friday, I've been try to comment, not sure if it was active rain or the WFI here.

Thanks!!!

Hey, the man of the hour - Hi Fred!  You were very sweet to help me out, and I know you've helped others, too.  It shows what a kind, caring individual you are, all great qualities in a Victoria, B.C. Realtor!  Hope you had fun in Seattle, and welcome back!
