Broker Bryant, Where The Heck Have You Been?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Tutas Towne Realty, Inc and Garden Views Realty, LLC BK607690

So….Broker Bryant, where the heck have you been?


Well I’m glad you asked. I have been working my fanny off! Literally as I have lost 80 lbs over the last five years!!

Sklinny Broker Bryant

As some of you may know I have been a member of ActiveRain for a long time. In fact June will be my 10th year anniversary. I figured what better time to reappear after a long absence.


Prior to about 2012 I had written over 1,000 articles on ActiveRain. For some unknown reason my blog was pretty popular back then. I received tons of business from my efforts. And met lots of agents and industry professionals from across the nation.


One thing lead to another and in 2010 Wendy Rulnick and I opened We eventually had the largest public short sale site on the planet. We trained many agents and helped a whole bunch of folks through the short sale process. We grew the site to almost 15,000 members and stayed busy with this for several years. Even though short sales have fallen off some and we no longer train agents the site is still up and running with new members joining daily. Feel free to stop by if you need short sale assistance.


I guess I have mostly been missing in action due to losing my blogging mojo. After 1,000+ articles I ran out of ideas for new articles. That with spending so much time running a network and negotiating short sales lead to my extended absence.


But…..this year I’ve decided to get back into the swing of things.


As always I will be writing about what I do. Where I do it. And how I do it. Hopefully my articles will be helpful to agents and consumers alike.


I’m a simple man with a simple way of doing things. My hope is that something I share will help you in your business. My style is to write about how I do things and what works for me instead of telling you what you should do. Every market is different and every agent has their own unique goals. When it comes to how to practicing real estate there is no “one size fits all”.


Anyway, I’m happy to be back and I’m looking forward to renewing old relationships and forming new ones.


And as always please feel free to reach out to me anytime if I can be of assistance. I LOVE talking real estate.

Until next time…….

All of your responses really make me feel good. I truly appreciate all of the support. I hope I can share stuff to help you think about your business.

As for the weight loss. I spend 2-3 hours 6 days a week excercising. And I only eat real food.  I try to avoid anything processed and eat organic and fresh when ever possible. I turn 59 next week and I've never felt better. Down from 280lbs to 200.  My pants size went from 46 to 34. Not bad for an old guy!!!

I noticed quite a few of the blogs I read back a few years ago dropped off.

Hey...I used to get notices of postings on the short sale site, those stopped too.

Damn, you look good.  Way to go on the weight loss.  It's an area that I've focused on for the past 5 years.

I'm glad to see you back blogging again.  You were  always a breath of fresh air on ActiveRain.  I learned a lot from you over the years.
