social media: Why Networking is So Darn Important In Real Estate
- 05/08/14 10:18 AM
I have built quite a social presence on-line. It didn't happen overnight. The one thing I make clear is that I am a referral agent. Being on various social networks and attending various conferences through the years. I have met some incredible real estate agents. Agents who clearly are successful and always happy to accept a referral.

I know we all have these stories where we refer business to an agent and the agent drops the ball. It happens on occasion and it happened to me
social media: Change - Reap The Rewards
- 12/05/13 08:04 AM
Smart business people do not resist change. They may not like it because not all personalities do yet the most successful people in life are not resistant to change. Lets think about this for a moment before I read anything negative about the changes of ActiveRain. Change is good and necessary for our ever growing population and if we want our businesses to flourish.

social media: At The Top - Back Where I Belong - Thanks Activerain
- 04/17/13 06:02 AM
From 2005 to 2010 I was a trainer for CENTURY 21 Sundance Realty in Daytona Beach Florida. For years I would tell people to google me that way or refer to myself as the Daytona Real Estate Trainer. My website said it and the search engines agreed. Fact of the matter, I dominated the search engines and was always on the first page of Google for numerous terms and sometimes with some terms it was several pages in. I was an active blogger on Activerain and had been up until 2010.
My Life Changed Painfully
Oh life happens....For a couple of years I
social media: Real Estate Bar Camp - South Florida - Are You Going?
- 10/06/11 03:24 PM
So I have a confession...yes I am a virgin...A ReBar Camp Virgin. While there have been numerous opportunities, I've either had to cancel or could not make due to previous obligations. I am so excited to finally attend one.
I think one of the things that really interest me is the opportunity to see many of the tech savvy REALTORS who will be attending who have been my friends off line and online. Not only see them but network and participate in a non-conference. Very exciting 2 me plus go back to my old stomping grounds!
There are only

social media: Real Estate Is Technical Warfare!
- 04/17/10 11:53 AM
Creating your place on the web is extremely important...finding your voice...your favorite places to socialize....consistency....and the time spent is crucial too. Many people on the net are the Curious George type. At least I can speak for myself....when I am looking to purchase something...I don't just run to one site...I look around...and the site I select...is not based on domain name...or the first site I come across...I got to get that warm....fuzzy feeling...no not girlie but a comfort...based on information..and content found on the site...I want to see ratings...I want to see guarantees...I want to feel the trust through the world
social media: Remember Real Estate Is A People To People Business
- 03/02/10 07:08 AM
When working with agents sometimes I need to set the record straight...there is some myth that you can sit behind your keyword all day...everyday....and create an abundance of business.....enough business to support yourself throughout the year...while it can happen if you are a Zillow.com or a Trulia.com but as an individual trying to earn a good living...I'm here to tell you that real estate is a people to people business. Sometimes all you need to do to take your business to the next level is get in front of more people.

social media: Google Voice Rocks the House or Should I say Condo! 3 Invites Left...You Want One?
- 11/19/09 06:44 PM
I love widgets...widgets that have purpose and can benefit a blog reader. Well today while sitting at my computer I was quite surprised I was contacted a couple of times via google voice.
Google voice rocks the house or should I say condo? That's what the caller on the end wanted..a Daytona Beach Condo. Lucky me!!

social media: Marketing Your Listings To Anyone and Everyone!
- 11/14/09 11:08 AM
Some interesting ongoing debates...throughout the blogosphere...people seem to STILL feel contempt towards the big dawgs...you know REALTOR.com.....Zillow and Trulia....
A question was posed to me...why send them to these places when they should be hitting your site...the point is CONSUMERS should be hitting your site...no debate here BUT when I think of what we do as listing agents...our job is to market listings to anyone and everyone and if that means its not your site? It's bad and wrong????
To give a seller a fighting chance with global exposure from various places...selecting high traffic...known sources of where real estate buyers

Somehow, someway I have lost all balance with my online marketing. I'm here and there and spending many many hours online every single day.
I know what goes on with many of my online friends and I keep up to date on all kinds of information and sometimes I get lost in my virtual world.
Is this happening to you?
It was three years ago...I got hot and heavy with the Internet. I mean real hot and heavy! So hot and heavy that anywhere that I went...and all I thought about was there Internet access available?

- 08/03/09 03:07 PM
Last night I posted a referral on Activerain, Facebook and Twitter...a potential short sale..in a small town in Florida. This morning I followed up on any responses and found one...a darn good one...

social media: Keep People on Your Posts-Consider The Way You Link
- 07/31/09 05:28 AM
I was working on a localism post and created a list post..this list post had several links..the ultimate goal is to generate traffic and gain additional readers and if you want to keep people on your post-Consider the way you link.
One thing to keep in mind..your goal is to keep your readers on your blog and allow the link to open in a new window..never making your readers leave your blog post..
While many may think duh..there will be some who never thought about it.
Activerain makes it easy and automatically sets your link to open in
