floorplanonline: Keller Williams Family Reunion - Rookie Needs Advice - 02/01/11 11:48 AM
I've been to dozens of Real Estate tradeshows in my day - however one event has eluded me.  I'm so excited to see and participate in KW Family Reunion 2011 in Anaheim CA.  However because I've never been - I need advice.
They say Family Reunion is the most amazing and yet most crazy real estate event ever. Top producing agents like New Jersey's Sue Adler and North Carolina's Ashley Wilson are there to share and learn and yet there are so many in attendance that it can be intimidating.
Those that have been tell me "its shocking to witness the … (5 comments)

Adding to the already way-cool floorplanonline interactive floor plan virtual tour, is a new automated tool that adds mouse-overs to each photo icon!  Simple idea, strong results.

When viewing an fpo floor plan tour you may click the icon in the kitchen to see the kitchen photo - or - you may mouse over the photo to get a small thumbnail of the photo.  The guys in the Dev department got it done before 2010 so... it is live now on all existing tours, and there is no extra fee for this addition.

floorplanonline: Tips for hangin' in San Diego CA for ReBarCamp and NAR 2009 - 09/28/09 04:26 PM
San Diego REBARCAMP and NAR November 2009 Tips
I'm in!  I just registered for #rebcsd (rebarcamp San Diego). Its the day before #NAR2009 - and I have to say, I look forward to rebcsd much more than NAR. However both will be great as the REBarCamp and NAR are in Sunny San Diego.
SD is a fantastic city, and I highly recommend hanging around and taking in the sights. I lived in SD for 14 months, and spent way to much time hiking the hills, sailing the harbor and soaking up the sun on my favorite beach (la jolla shore).

floorplanonline: Tips for attending the Largest BBQ Contest in the Nation - American Royal BBQ Contest - 09/22/09 12:02 PM
Im VERY biased, but you need to go to the AR BBQ Contest the first weekend in Oct.
The American Royal BBQ in Kansas City is the Best BBQ contest or for that matter, outdoor Cooking Contest in the nation.  On their website, they simply say its the largest... "Best" is subjective I guess.

Just across the Kansas state line in downtown KC MO sits the American Royal BBQ Contest - and each year for the last 10 or so, Ive gotten together with friends and family as a team and entered the worlds greatest BBQ contest. Our team name … (0 comments)

floorplanonline: House of glass, Pane in the sash - 07/10/09 09:38 AM
At FloorPlanOnline we run into agents sometimes that take good photos, but more frequently than not, we run into agents that THINK they take great photos. (that's why we offer to take photos for agents, and offer to measure the listing).  Sometimes the issues are easy repaired....the lessons easily learned.
But every now and then a listing comes along that simply is not photogenic.  This is not the fault of the photographer.  Sometimes its paint, and other times...well its more of an architectural issue.  I believe the guy that built this place must have traded a jet ski for a random … (3 comments)

floorplanonline: 70% of Buyers Want to See FloorPlans - 06/24/09 05:03 PM
Yet another Study came across my desk that backs up the NAR and CAR (California) studies.
In this most recent survey, 90% of buyers wanted clear Photos. this makes sense - however why do some not want photos? The Second most desired online content was FloorPlans at 70%, third was Photo Slideshow at 50%.
Because we are in the floorplan and photo business, we've been tracking this for the last 5 years.  The percent of buyers that desire floorplans online continues to climb, and photo slide-shows has dipped a bit recently.  Photos have and willl remain the most important untill high … (0 comments)
