Hey Property, I am Talking To You

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

I am surfing AR dashboard looking for a post to read and comment upon. Of course, I am going by the title. I am passing market reports, listings, and, to tell you the truth, not much is left.

And then I see something that piques my interest. Good title… Next thing I look at who the author is, and it is Riverbluff Properties (or any other company for that matter). And I pass. I feel stupid to engage in a conversation with Properties. I understand that there are people behind, but for me they are too behind. I like starting a comment with the name, and I do not want to write “Riverbluff Properties”…

For me commenting is communication. But do we really want to communicate with properties, houses, or condos?

Hey, people...

I also find that locating a good post to comment on is an adventure. One that sometimes takes longer than it should. Maybe I am too picky in the type of posts I look for.

Jon- being the Libra that I am I can see both sides, however, I do agree with you.  It's like in "real" life... we want to be able to say "good morning, Jon."  We feel funny saying "good morning, Ajax Realty."

Jon, I skip over the "businesses" as well.  Seems they are primarily interested in capturing a different audience

Bette - not sure of their motivation, but if agents like you and me skip them, it might be missing a mark. Wouldn't you agree?

I agree Jon.  Some days there just isn't a lot of interesting blogging going on and I will say I may have a writers block on many of those days also.

William - I have an easy way of dealing with it. Writers block, so I do not write this day, or next, or the day after... Nobody's life hinges on my writing, so the world can wait :)

I write blogs about what happens to me and don't generally write stuff that people don't want to read, or at least that is my goal. Whether I achieve it, that's hard to say. My title doesn't always disclose what I'm writing about, like today's blog, for example, there is no way for me to put what actually happened into a blog title or I might get banned.

Elizabeth - my titles usually wouldn't be indicative of the content as well, but titles help pass on listings and market reports. After all, there are very few people, can make a short sale story make engaging and entertaining like you.

Sometimes when an account is held by a team, I've had to ask which member was doing the writing. It does feel better to know who you are communicating with. It puts a face to the name.
