MOVE 'EM OUT

Our local newspaper, The Sarasota Herald-Tribune, is running a great series on "Moving Houses." The first one ran Friday, and it is a continuing series about different strategies Realtors can use to move homes.  

If you'd like to read the first one and follow the others, here's the link:   http://www.heraldtribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060804/PHOTOS02/60804011   The first article was on staging homes. I think you may enjoy it if it is not in your local paper.

How many hours…

As I was reading through the blogs I was wondering how many hours or minutes a day does everyone spend on ActiveRain? I usually spend about an hour a day. After I have put the kids to bed is when I find time to sit down and write blogs and scan… more
Same Old Thing…

When we write our blogs we write them in Word and then copy and paste them into ActiveRain. We usually take turns-she writes on day and I write the next. Well, tonight my mom emailed the blogs that she wrote and then I went and copied and pasted… more
Team vs. Group

I've noticed lately several "Teams" that have changed their name to "Group". My mother and I are a team and we say "The Moore & Moore Team". To me "The Moore & Moore Group" sounds more like a law firm… more
KEEP THEIR ATTENTION

Maybe everyone else out there knew this, but I just discovered what a difference using different effects in visual tours to go from photo to photo makes. When you go to each individual photo, you can select the way that window closes and goes to… more

After reading a news article about Brooke Astor, a great philanthropist and the grand dame of New York society for over 50 years, I was struck by something she said. When asked why she always dressed up, even when visiting poor neighborhoods, she… more
PART-TIME AGENTS
share
Can a part-time agent really make it in today's real estate world? Many people get into the business thinking of it as more like a hobby than a business. Most experienced agents will agree that you can't do a good job part-time. With another full… more
