Samsung blurred the lines years ago when they released their Galaxy Note calling it a "phablet" - a hybrid between a phone and a tablet. I am about to blur the lines even further. I just upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to the Note 4 and love testing how far I can push it.  Using it with t...
March 14, 2015 is probably the most incredible Geek Day of the century, it is national Pi Day.   Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.  When trying to calculate out the math, it's numbers do not appear to ever end or repeat.  Mathematician have tried and so far they ha...
I believe in full disclosure and absolutely detest being asked by a lender to remove something from a sale that is actually being included trying to fit their requirements into my transaction! For example, again today, I had a lender call me up telling me to remove shelving from a real estate pur...

I get several phone calls a week from companies promising to get me on the "first page of Google".  I also get countless emails promising to acheive the same effect.  Each of these companies can "claim" to acheive this amazing result because of the fact there is no Official first page of Google. ...
I have noticed that my blogs are not being picked up by Google's bots the way they used to.  I used to be able to write a blog and within a half an hour, Google would have already indexed it and it would show up in the searches. However, since Trulia acquired ActiveRain and changed the domain to ...
A few years ago I came up with an exciting new approach to converting open house visitors to clients.  I am a pretty laid back Realtor since I have been in the business for 23 years and my past clients and referrals keep me fairly busy.  However, I still do open houses to placate my sellers even ...
As Realtors, we try to take pride in staying in contact with our clients and customers.  Yet I have already received two emails this morning with a reply address of noreply@_____.com.   Doesn't that tell your audience that you are only interested in talking and not listening? I thought CRM stood ...
