Thankful Thursdays...Putting a Face to a Name

One of the advantages of our profile photos is that it’s a lot easier to relate to a person or face as we scroll through the many posts here. At Tuesday’s ZOOM call, I got to do just that.

Meet Realtyna, Inc, or at least part of it...Tait Militana. I had to admit that I had never read any of Realtyna’s posts. And that is on me. 


I’ll bet you recognize 3 of the members above, but that’s Tait bottom right. 


Tuesday’s topic was How to Link WordPress to Your MLS. I’ll leave it for the agents here to explain further because that is way out of my wheelhouse. 


However, Tait discussed something that I can understand and that has been mentioned here on numerous occasions. 


The Big Z and others like them can’t provide the kind of local knowledge and expertise that local agents can. This is why writing local posts about events, services, neighborhoods, and places that are special to your area in addition to marketing reports and listings can be so important.  You are adding that extra layer that someone 2000 miles away can’t. 

 

Thank you Tait and Realtyna, Inc for the information that you share!!!

Hi Kathy Streib - I was unable to make the call last Tuesday.  However, my MLS is already linked to my website.  I hope that others will be able to use the info that Tait was able to provide.

Nice to see some new faces.

I was revisiting a blog from twelve years ago this morning and I didn't even recognize most of the commenters. There were only two or three familiar faces. I guess those others didn't stick around.

Kathy, Tait nailed it with that comment.  The personal touch is something AR is heads and shoulders above everyone else.

And the same to you and Chef Dolores Roy Kelley 

Brian England catching you smiling wasn't hard to do and it was so good to see you. I usually don't comment on posts with out a profile photo because I don't know if I'm speaking with a person or an entity that cranks out posts.

Kat Palmiotti I thought that was a really good pic of you!!! I usually look like I'm asleep!

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS and we're not talking about how 3 of you were in the same place. Was it three or four???

Bob "RealMan" Timm I know it's a personal choice but a photo adds a needed dimension. 

Nina Hollander, Broker You write excellent local posts!  I'm not an SEO expert so wouldn't know what to tell you.

Rocky Dickerson doesn't matter the topic, I love seeing everyone. Glad to see you there every week. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I can remember the Localism challenges that Bob Stewart would have!!!!   He was getting us to do what we should have been doing.

Kathy Streib The localism posts are only the begining.  There is a bit more than that, you have to actually be there and not in your imagination.

Grant Schneider I think so even though I've never had to do what agents do re: the MLS. 

Will Hamm I thought it was interesting!  Maybe he'll return.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® Glad that you're all set. 

Sharon Tara I think about that when I look at old posts too. 


George Souto I agree!  That was the single most important thing he said.
