The lead article in todays Boston Sunday Globe April 29. 2207 is titled Brokers in Blogsville. The article talks about many aspects of real estate but has a heavy emphasis on agents going on line to get knowledge, opinions and information out to a tech savvy consumer market. It mentions the differenet types of authors using blogs such as REALTORS, loan officers, technology experts, legal matters and not surprisingly enough home owners and critics who are beginning to take on the real estate industry's self serving statements!
Unfortunately the Active Rain Real Estate Network and the Localism feature didn't get any "ink" however a few members that I have seen on this site did get mentioned. The idea that Brokers now have a direct connection with buyers and seller and how it is transforming the way we do business is becoming the leading edge for lead generation and customers.
