This week I'll be holding a social media training event for the Water Wonderland Board of REALTORS.  In preparation for my trip to Gaylord on Thursday, I asked some questions of the board AE Jeannie Rizzardi regarding what was going on in their market.  I did this in part so I had a feel for the outlook and mindset of the members, and in part so that I could have some material for examples.

If anyone knows Michigan, that's 300 miles straight north and at the time, quite the culture shock.  Now I LOVE this small waterfront community and because in my travels, many people don't know where we're located, I thought I'd just jump in to this Active Rain Community and share information about our area, market and in general and see what unfolds.I have had many careers in my life but feel most fortunate to have discovered the real estate industry (OK, most days). Living and working in a small community like St. Ignace is challengin...
