Today many of your real estate clients are probably using Facebook. I don’t understand why people enjoy sharing the details of their lives with everyone they know plus a whole lot of people they don’t know – but I’m in a minority. Many do enjoy it and do post to Facebook every day – or [...]
Several discussions on Active Rain lately have touched on the problem of clients being upset when they can’t reach their real estate agent, clients calling in the middle of the night, etc. My thought was “Why not make it both easy and clear for both of you?” Why not send each of your clients an [...]
A few minutes ago I read a blog post and wished to respond… but by the time I got through 3 or 4 different pages and THEN found out I needed to be logged in, I said “forget it” and clicked away. Now that blogger may or may not care if people respond and post [...]
