your texas connection: Online Reviews are Important / Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection, Keller Williams Realty - 06/30/10 03:23 PM
I have something stuck in my head.  It came from the Stefan Swanepoel seminar that I went to a few weeks ago.  Stefan spoke about advertising, specifically print & mailers.  He said that while a large number of realtors used the "I'm #1 in sales," or "I'm the top listing agent," only 19% of the public believed statements like that.  The rest of the group relied upon online reviews.  Wow.  Pretty powerful stuff.  Especially since I've used those ads myself.  After the seminar, I couldn't stop thinking about that point.  I use online reviews all the time.  So it made perfect … (10 comments)

It's that time of the year for us, hot weather in the 100's and afternoon showers.  Or maybe not.  The afternoon begins with the clouds rolling in and we get excited that water will fly from the sky to wet our backyards, roofs and help our plants stay alive.  Of course, the flip side to this is how the humidity will soar and the Steambath Effect will take over.
