    If you’re running a website, did you give your favicon any love?  Do you even know what a favicon is? A favicon is simple a mini-logo (icon?) that shows up next to your URL in most address bars. (Favicons also show up on the tabs of browsers and are often included next to articles you […]

  • Realtor.com Turns up the Heat and…

    …I really like how they’ve mapped it out!  😉 The Realtor.com team recently turned on a “heat map” option within their home valuation tool.  Here’s a heat map of Ballard in Seattle where you can really see the detail of the more expensive areas (in particular the areas around the water!): It’s clean, fast and […]

  • Danilo apologizes for writing the 2nd post on AG that hammers REALTOR.com…

    …in two days and it reminded me that I’m about to hammer into REALTOR.com for the 2nd time in a short-while…  but I dont’ expect to appoligize at the end… 😉 Today’s beef?

  • Matthew Ferrara just left an interesting comment about Realtor.com Home Values…

    …that reminded me of this video from the previous head of REALTOR.com: [Ferrara’s comment] “…Instead of just copying everyone else, maybe REALTOR.COM (and by extension, NAR) could make some decisions based upon market realities.

  • I’ve convinced myself that the one thing missing from Outside.in is that they…

    …never made much inroads with the real estate community (or real estate portals for that matter).   Imagine if the Realtor.com team had bought Outside.in instead of building the neighborhoods project. And it really doesn’t matter if it was Zillow, Trulia, AOL, Yahoo or Realtor.com, it could be a win for the real estate portal (lots […]

  • “Realtor.com isn’t bringing any game. They…

    … need to come up with something better than four free photos, and quick.”  – Blanche Evans Ouch. (h/t Spencer)

  • Been crazy for a few days getting ready for…

    …in Realty Quest. Here are some of the things I wanted to talk about this week, but haven’t had the chance: 4RealzEd is coming to Pasadena on May 30! The buzz from the first two events has been wonderful and I’m already seeing people sign up without any real marketing on our part! I love […]
