Real Estate Agent - Century 21 Results Realty - GA RE Lic # 282060
Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.



Image via Wikipedia That's right... Buyers are looking at homes, and they still have a choice. Don't get me wrong, there is competition among Buyers for some homes, but the competition goes both ways. Buyers that don't snap up the deal fast enough might find that they lose it to another Buyer.  ...
FaceBook... I just had to get that out of the way quickly...  We all knew it had to be on the list.  There are 300,000,000 people there, and some of them might actually be looking for a real estate agent.  But PLEASE, don't just wade in and start telling everyone that you are a real estate agent....
I mentioned it last week...  Garner Creek at Parkview hosted a workshop on Blogging, ActiveRain and Social Networking on Thursday, August 27th.  During the workshop, the main questions we covered were: Why blog? Why Active Rain should be your platform? How to incorporate blogging and ActiveRain i...
This is a GREAT video.  If you think Social Media is just something for the kids (you probably aren't actually here...) you need to see this video.  It is only a few minutes.  Thanks to Missy for bringing it up!Is Social Media a fad? A fad is something that comes and goes...a temporary fashion; a...
I'd watch this on TV several times in a row. (and this is NOT real estate related...) Up until a few years ago, the American Rally Series (Rally America) had regular television coverage.  But that has dried up.  Too many college football games I guess.  But auto racing needs sponsors.  And sponso...
Maybe this one should really be #8... but I just can't help it.  I have talked about ActiveRain, WordPress, Embeddable Tools, Photography, RSS Feeds and Analytics Programs.  And EVERY single one of these things can be learned about at your local (or not so local) reBarCamp (logo linked).  I have ...
For those that love technology, there are some REALLY cool things coming up in the Atlanta area.  For those in real estate that love technology, it is even better...  August 26th, 2009 - Social Media Breakfast - Atlanta: 7:00am to 9:00am, Atlanta Bread Company - Town Center Mall area in Cobb Coun...
Analysis Paralysis... If you haven't heard the statement, it is summing up the "Ready, Aim Fire, Aim Fire, Aim" menality.  Basically, spending forever making the plan, and then never following through and actually "doing" the plan.  And then... There is the opposite side of the coin...  "Ready, F...
The listing said to call before visiting the home.  The listing sheet said that the alarm code was in the lockbox.  I called... the agent reiterated that the alarm code was in the lockbox.  The house had a keypad deadbolt.  The lockbox contained a code that accessed the deadbolt.  It was NOT the ...
RSS...  Really Simple Syndication.  Rich Site Summary.  Most of us know what it is... but few are really leveraging it to help create business or simplify our lives...  For those that don't know, RSS is a news feed.  Basically, by subscribing to a website's RSS feed, each time the site is updated...
