My 50th Blog... Am I addicted?

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

How time flies when your having fun and I am having fun blogging since I joined the Active Rain Network. Now I have always enjoyed writing and I am a big advocate of writing out my clients position in a real estate transaction.

 So here I am writing this piece on my "50th" blog!

 Reading comprehension is more productive when it comes to offers and counter offers. Requiring your memo be passed to a principal is a strategic move to make sure your position is clear to the other party.

Now I state this because when we talk to people face to face only 7% of the message is understood by the words while another 56% is comprehended with tone and an amazing 37% is processed through your body language.

Take the fact that almost 90% of real estate  transactions that have two agents required less then 5 face to face meetings. So writing is effective and reading is effective so why not write it out and have some make a decison based on their comprehension?

Okay that was #50  Comments?

Congratulations on number 50!  This blogging thing is great because not only does it get your name out there from a marketing point of view, it helps to hone our skills as agents, lenders and other real estate professionals.

Hire me and start packing!

What was that you said?  I am not quite clear about the point you were trying to make!  Could you elaborate further?  Then email me a copy, send a copy by fax and send me a podcast while you are at it. 

You are addicted, just like the rest of us!

Thanks Bob. I actually use this forum to educate other agents and remind myself of the skills I have and the practical application of these methods in order to be successful.  Keep blogging.

My theory - you are truly addicted when you don't count...# of blogs, # of points, etc.  Or maybe if you )obsessively count then you are truly addicted...hmm......:)

Dave, I love it here too! I just haven't seen any business out of this network yet.  I don't know why but then again all real estate is local.
