My workday usually starts with reading Facebook posts from the night before and commenting on friends' and clients' pictures and updates. It has been fun and productive. I can spend hours on Facebook. I then move on to Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Linked-In. I then go to the MLS and keep that running in the background all day because my job is to list and sell homes! But is it really work? Is it really helping my business? I believe that Facebook and all social media is a wonderful way to connect with people and yes, I do believe it is business. Full disclosure - I love how it feels to get likes on my updates and I love to give back and Like friends posts. For me it is work.
Enter Active Rain...I am going to spend time growing here. Learning how to blog, spending time with my colleagues, learning about their neighborhoods, the latest technology to help my clients and business and maybe even doing some traveling to meet in person with the people that I have met online are all goals of mine. I love to attend Real Estate education seminars and learn about my craft! What a better way to do this than be on Active Rain!
I have to give a big shout out and Thank You to my friend Roy Kelley. He has been talking to me about doing this for years. He was right! He is probably one of the brightest people I know. His photography is stunning and he has a keen sense for what is happening and what is going to happen in the Real Estate market.
I am bursting with excitement and enthusiasm! I am going to participate and join this community and it is going to be my pleasure to blog about my life in Real Estate as well as my neighborhood and Maryland. Yes, this is business and what a wonderful business this is! I am so happy this journey has begun. I am hooked!
