AREAA 2011 National Conference in San Francisco was a big success and I am very honored to have been invited.
Thank you to Lina Chu- Founding President of Asian Real Estate Association of America- Inland Empire Chapter- who invited me to speak on the technology panel where it was standing room only.
Herman Chan is SO funny! He really had the crowd laughing. Herman is a video blogger (vblogger) and shared his top tips to doing video blogging. He has been on HGTV and many other TV shows. He is a San Francisco celebrity realtor®.
John Reyes from OpenHousesInc.com gave some great stats on why it is important to get into social media and how agents are still not using social media in the right ways.
Yi showed us about the mobile apps that realtor.com has put out there and how the consumers are using this tool.
Then I spoke about how to create your brand around a niche market that is hungry for what you have to offer them and how these kinds of websites can get to the top of Google within days and how to add ActiveRain blogging to the mix.
Thank you to Aurora Pucciarello who invited me to host one of the business development roundtables as a technology coach.
This was a very well attended event with over 1500 attendees. There were some great REO break out sessions conducted by asset managers from many different lenders like Wells Fargo and Fannie Mae and asset companies like PEMCO.
Of course I can not write this post without mentioning what a star our little guy was during this event and what a big helper he was for me. Thank you for being with me- my shadow:)
