Earlier this week my friend Ben joined me at ActiveRain University to take an honest look at the business of a lot of agents. We called the class '37 Ways Not to Suck at Real Estate'. I know, a little aggressive but the reality is, some of us suck. I'll admit it, I suck at certain things and coul...

The single most important component of your success in generating business leads online is your IDX site. Anyone telling you anything different is full of $#!&^. It's not ActiveRain, it's not a wordpress blog, it's not Zillow or Trulia or realtor.com. It is without question your IDX. There are ce...

I'm a complete failure as a blogger. I set out at the beginning of the year to post these random thoughts once a month week. Once a month would have been a more realistic target. I don't know how some of you do it. I suppose it becomes a routine......I've never been a big routine person. Or maybe...

When I first started upchucking random thoughts onto my computer screen I admitted that consistency has never been my strong suit. The first thing I've ever really committed to in my life was my wife (super smart decision, she's amazing).....and that took until I was 33 years old. I have no excus...

Are there certain things in your business on which you will NEVER compromise? Like do you refuse to show someone houses without a pre-approval letter? Or do you refuse to take overpriced listings? I'm sure many of you would be much happier if every client you worked with knew what those 'never co...

Every Tuesday, I am going to sit down and have a chat with an ActiveRain member who is having success with their ActiveRain blog. Success rarely means the same thing to everyone. For some, ActiveRain may be an outlet to relieve the stress of being a sole agent in a wildly competitive industry. Fo...

(I missed last week.........all streaks have to end eventually.......unless it's the streak of Seattle not winning any major sports championships. I'm convinced that one will never end!) I was pretty riveted by the coverage of the Osama Bin Laden killing last night. However, the one thing I don't...

I've seen a lot of people come and go in my professional career. This one is by far the hardest I want to thank Jonathan for giving me a chance to be by his side for the last 8 years. It's been a great ride. Extremely challenging at times, very satisfying at others. Through it all I've learned so...
