First Blog

Real Estate Broker/Owner with The Kennelley Group Realtors

Hi everyone, this is my first Blog so bear with me if I do something wrong.  I discovered ActiveRain by accident, so here I am, hoping to "make new friends and influence people".  First let me invite you to visit my site and let me know what you think.  I am trying to build one that will be user friendly and easy to navigate.   The site includes programs that I have developed over the years to assist my clients in reaching their real estate goals. 

My son, who now teaches accounting at John Brown University, came over years ago and we sat down and created programs that were quite beneficial in showing people the different advantages available to them in the sale or acquisition of property.  We tried to make the exhibits as simple as possible and yet drive home the point we were trying to make.   Click "Here" to go to my site then click on the "Buyer/Seller Info" link, then click on either the "Buyers" or "Sellers" tips signs and select the first link in the lists.

Scroll through the pages and let me know what you think, and any suggestions you have would be appreciated.   

Well, that's it for my first Blog.  I hope someone finds it interesting and that it will help them come up with some new ideas to enhance their marketing strategies.

Thanks,  Hal

Welcome to ActiveRain.  I am fairly new also, but have found it a wonderful source to all kinds of information.  From Marketing to transaction issues.  There is always someone to offer insight.  I have clients call me often and say they discovered my from my profile on ActiveRain.

Hi Hal and welcome to ActiveRain, I am fairly new and learning myself. So far so good. This is a kind and friendly community filled with people willing to help, teach and I am sure from your history in the business many people can even learn from you. The site looks great and I think you accomplished what you were going for with ease of use as I found it quite easy to navigate around and eventhough I am 24 I like the bigger writing as it is easy to read un follow. Goodluck, and Happy Easter sir.

Hi Hal!  Sorry I am late, but welcome to the Rain!  You'll love it.  I've made great new friends here, learned more that I ever thought I could in a lifetime and the professional network is phenominal! 

I'd provide feedback about you site, but I am a novice with a template that took 4 months to tweak myself!  I'm sure it's great, though! :)
