I was a frequent blogger and visitor to activerain when I first joined.  I checked what other were blogging and commented and watched my numbers grow.  But when activerain changed the formatting, it seemed harder to find material to read, seemed no one was commenting on anyone's blogs.

Just curious as to what my fellow real estate agents are doing to get business.  I know it's all about lead generation, the more listings, the better the business. Are you holding open houses during the week? on Saturdays?  Are Realtor luncheons working for anyone?  I've conducted a couple of fir...

I did statistics for 2007 and 2008 and of course thus far for 2009 on the number of homes sold (closed) by month in each year. I wanted to show the cycle to help sellers recognize when to place their homes for sale. Yes, there will be more homes available during this period, but most get sold du...

I attended a seminar by Danielle Kennedy on the 45 tools to selling real estate in 2009 on Thursday this week.  I'd read her How to List and Sell Real Estate book, had heard her on tape, but never seen in person. While I enjoyed her presentation and learned I really need to focus on my scripts, s...

The Florida Association of Realtors recently announced that home sales for Florida were up from sales last year this time.  That's great news, but sadly, that's not the case for Tallahassee-yet!  In fact, we are down almost half from last year at this time.  The good news though is that Keller Wi...

I miss the way activerain used to come up when I logged in.  I could see how many were on line, easier to see the groups and what was being said about real estate and other things in the business. I don't know, just doesn't seem to get the activity it used to and I am never sure who sees what I p...

Our local Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce is listening to it's members and doing what they can to keep business in business. Our Chamber has a large membership for the size of Tallahassee.  The reason for it is because they have lots of opportunities for members to meet, mingle, discuss b...

I've just finished sending my last hud/settlement statement and letter out to my 2008 buyers.  Whew! Yet, I'd have relished sending twice as many if I could have. As one of my touches, I like to send my buyers their copy of the settlement statement for their tax purposes and also to remind them t...
