    Real Estate WordCamp is Coming to NARdiGras!

    I’ve been working with the NAR team to put together a WordPress event at NARdiGras, and couldn’t be more excited that we’re ready to start announcing details! In a nutshell, we’ve broken the half-day event into two tracks — one for beginners and one for more advanced WordPress users — and the folks we’ve agreed […]

  • A Wisconsin Realtor gets 18 months (probation) for criminal defamation…

    … after writing on ActiveRain that another Realtor was linked to the Russian mob. *note: I added the word “probation” into the title to be more clear!

  • Trulia Blog Platform?

    Very interesting…

  • Couldn’t have said it better myself!

    At the last 4RealzEd event, a wonderful real estate videographer by the name of David Toth agreed to film our event as well as some reactions from attendees. My favorite video, for reasons that will probably be obvious if you watch it, is when he captured me talking with attendees after the event: Here are […]

  • 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 […]

Isn’t this type of commingling of listings against MLS rules? Notice the purple and pink icons… Those are REO (foreclosures) and FSBOs, respectively (green icons […]

  • Looking forward to the TweetUP this…

    …Friday. For those of you in the LA area, I recommend avoiding the last minute rush and registering on Upcoming now! (and while you’re at it, consider joining the RE.net event group on upcoming so you can get updated on all kinds of good events like this!)

  • Added video posts and comments to RCG yesterday, and…

    … I’m really enjoying the results so far.   If you’ve got a webcam, feel free to join us in playing with video conversations.

  • Is Zillow worth $225M?

    It’s a great question… I thought I’d dive into this question a bit so I started writing a killer-post! My thought was to put together a fascinating post that described likely revenue opportunities at both Zillow and Trulia and I was even going to go so far as to estimate the value of Trulia… However, […]
