I was reading a afew stories at Inman.com when Idecided to comment on one. As I was registering to comment - I discoverd that agents could create a free profile and make it available to the public. Before I created my profile - I decided to do a search in my area and see how many agents were listed. Searching a 500 mile radius in Chicagoland I only came up with 17 agents. SEVENTEEN!!! I believe this is a new feature implemented with the Inman redesign in March of this year - but I was still amazed that so few agents had registered so I jumped at the opportunity.
According to the Inman About US Section - "The company's content is syndicated on more than 150,000 web sites and in more than 200 newspapers". Seems like a no brainer to create a profile on the site for free.
