Today I spent most of the day going over a client's real estate website - doing a "checkup." I started with the tabs across the top - checking to see where each one went and if it matched the promise on the tab. Then I checked every link on the rotating header and in the sidebar blo...

This article at the Scottsdale Property Shop had me chuckling, but the more I think about it... why not? The disgruntled real estate agent is setting up a website where agents can go to rate their clients - and he has the rating system all worked out. One rating category I think he missed is the ...

Last week I saw new real estate signs go up in our little town. Century 21 Riverstone replaced River Mountain Realty. Nine years ago, River Mountain Realty replaced Cliff Realty.

I've always looked forward to Mondays as a fresh start with new opportunities. Some of them don't quite make the grade, but today was exceptionally good. First I found a phone message from a new client. Well, she wasn't a client just then, but she is now. And for that I have to thank ...

Browsing the real estate magazines today, I came across an article stating that the construction of rental housing is on the rise because renters are now paying more for housing than homeowners. I wouldn't take one article's word for it, but recently, I've read that in many markets re...

The Most Often Used Real Estate Copywriting Book on My Shelf   Actually, it never makes it to my shelf. This book sits at the side of my desk, always within reach. And the word "copywriting" doesn't even appear within its covers. It offers no advice, no insight on writing headlines ...
