Yes, I'm Advertising!!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 SAL.2002007747

Every now and again someone leaves a comment on one of my posts that is something to the effect of:

"This post is self-advertising!!".

Darned Skippy it is!!


That's the primary reason I'm here in this community.

If you're thinking I'm here to entertain you, that may happen.

If you're thinking I'm here to educate you and offer tips, check in with me each Tuesday.

But for the most part, I'm here to let the public and you know WHAT I do and WHERE I do it.

I want it crystal clear that I'm a real estate agent helping buyers and sellers in the southwest Ohio region, working from Cincinnati to southern Dayton.

I want you to know that I've got a specialty in patio homes and other low maintenance living, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't love to help with "regular" homes too!

I have no problem with you knowing I'm dual career.  28 years for a major medical device manufacturer and 15 years as a RE/MAX agent too.

You read me enough and you'll know my religious beliefs.

You'll know we have a lot of flowers in our yard.

You'll know that we have 16 cats and 4 Chihuahuas.

You'll know we're beekeepers.

You'll know I'm a Navy vet.

You'll know that we're willing to help the people of ActiveRain navigate how to blog better. 

You'll know I rarely write less than 300 words :) 

You'll know I'm here day after day, year after year.

You'll see market reports packed with info and insight into each community we focus on.

And you'll know that we want you to trust us with friends, family and clients when you have a need for our area.

So yes, I'm advertising.  Both to you, and the public.  I don't need to plead the Fifth, because that's the primary reason I blog.

I'll be back tomorrow with some more advertising :)

I saw someone yesterday or the day before commented on something and said the person was self-advertising. And I laughed and thought "of course!"

Isn't that the main goal of any real estate professional? To advertise what we do, where and why?

That's terrific Bill but you know I don't know your religious beliefs but that's okay I know you are a great guy - Everything else I think I knew. I did get a good laugh and a big smile 

Happy Friday as I missed this post on Thursday

Real Estate has almost become as much advertising as it is selling houses. Keep up the good work!

Really? I can't imagine anyone leaving that comment. Of course you're going to sell yourself - that's what it's mainly about. And yes, I know you have strong faith, love animals and flowers, and live in a home surrounded by nature.

What a great post. It proves you are open and put yourself out there. Something that I could do a better job of myself.  As I focus on "what do I want to be known for?" Your example has given me some inspiration!

That's too funny! It's your blog and yours to decide what to write. What was she looking for - recipes or gardening tips?

As for having four chihuahuas - all I can say is Mercy!  I have just one and I say Mercy! every day!

Great post. Okay, do you really have that many cats. I show several pups but that is an ad theme for 30 years. I have one Golden Retriever at a time.

I knew you had plenty of critters, but didn't know you were bee keepers. That's something we've thought about getting into.

Meanwhile... I think you're still letting that snarky comment from a few days ago get under your skin. Quit that! As I said before, that post was definitely not self-serving, and that commenter was brain dead.

Just thinking... wondering what it would be like to live with small dogs. My Katie weighs in at about 90 pounds. All 4 of your babies could ride on her back.

Bill, I had someone say I'm a narcissist last year because of self-promoting and it made me laugh. You have to promote yourself, no one is going to do it for you and no one knows what you do better than you. Promote away!
