I've notice this about many agents.  You have to be an investigator to figure out what their market area is.  

My service has no geographic borders, so I make a point not to promote an area.

Michael - not only do you have to scroll down, but sometimes it's not there at all!  I wrote a featured post about this a while back and have been thinking I should repost it.

Everyone should have their location on their blog post right under their photo.  People get confused because the info is on their bio page - but it doesn't automatically transfer over to the blog page.  Everybody should be checking this - if someone lands on your blog, they won't know where you're from!

Emails with the social media links and all the contacts are crucial. Otherwise why both putting the effort into your marketing if you make it a mystery which market and how to track you down? Buyers, sellers don't have time for being teased, delayed.
