    My last post got me thinking about a poll I asked on Facebook a little while ago… It’s pretty simple (only one question) and while there were a decent number of responses, I’d love to get even more. Here’s the question: REALTORS: What is your largest source of business?

    Been a ridiculously great morning at the HomeQuest Social Media Summit in Portland. We had a packed house… Great audience. Wonderful crowd. Engaging speakers. So much fun! And the speakers were unbeatable. There’s always so much to learn from: Garron Selliken Gahlord Dewald David Gibbons And if you were at the event, we’d love your […]

    Do you need a foursquare social media strategy? Someone landed on my site today with the keywords: [foursquare social media strategy], and it got me thinking… Do I have a foursquare social media strategy? It’s all the rage to hate on foursquare (at least in the real estate space), but I’ve found the tool to […]

    I don’t think Jay Thompson has ever gone on a boring rant, so it’s always interesting to see what gets his blood boiling. And when the topic at hand touches on the current meme of real estate agent professionalism, all the better! Today it is that some North Carolina REALTORS who are protesting a new […]

    I’m totally missing the buzz… I’ve been playing with Google Buzz for a few days now and I know I must be missing something *big* because the ONLY thing I’ve found interesting about it so far is that by connecting with a bunch more people on the google platform, I now get more articles showing […]

    Was doing some searching to see how Linsey might be able to turn on Google Apps Labs on her account, when I came across Google’s URL shortener service specific to hosted domains. It was super easy to install and lets me send links out using any subdomain of 4realz. I choose the subdomain “z” (i.e. […]

    Facebook: Please help give Mike Price some more meaning in his life! He tweets: “If I didn’t “fan” your FB page the first time, please don’t ask again. Facebook – I want the word “ignore” to have some meaning in my life.” and I totally agree. Once someone ignores a FB fan page suggestion, no […]

    Two of the slickest aspects of using the P2 theme are 1) it gives me the option to write simple posts directly from the homepage (twitter-style) and 2) it updates comments and posts without any need to “reload” the page. To give you an idea of how cool this is, while I was writing my […]

    Got a question via email from a REALTOR today: “Do you have an opinion on using live chat for a website? any recommendations?” Personally, I don’t have an opinion. I tried a bunch of options a few years ago on RCG, but never saw much activity. Jim Duncan has said good things (and not so […]
