After several bouts of "Click here for Live support" from many websites lately, I thought this could be a very good, well marketed idea for Realtors.  Seemed simple, a Non-confrontational way to let consumers chat with a realtor, try to point them in the right direction, earn consumer trust, then...
I'm a techy.  My wife thinks a Laptop is permanently attached (she's threatened to by the computer a "Nighty".  Most of my time has been spent working tho, so it's a good thing.Z57 has been my template site of choice.  It's been a long road to get here.  I tried 3 different Template sites, and ha...
This is COOL:  I wish I could show it here, but AR doesn't let me paste in Java I guess.Real Etate Calendar links you to Google Gadgets for your website.  I found lots of fun things there, like Asteroids and Pacman, but I found this useful link to.  It brings up daily Real Estate trivia, yesterda...
Once upon a time, if you made your site high in Google rankings, you had it made.  Times change.  Google now has an estimated 35 to 40% of the search engine market, and Yahoo & MSN Search have about 50% market share.  Getting high in search engines takes a little more study.First, the good new is...
Ok, here in Ethics, a real ethics problem.  A competitor resides in my office building.  Nice enough guy, don't know him very well.  He has more agents than I do, but not very productive.My dilema?  The building management made a mistake about who has what suite.  Sent a demand letter, said he ha...

I'm going to plug a company here.  Tell you that up front.  And it's not my company...I've been designing websites for 7 years, I can use PHP, HTML, Flash, CSS, and more.  I'm not great, but I get the job done.  My wife is a writer (morning radio).  I've read tons, watch the search engines, and m...
We've thrown around terms like broker-centric, agent-centric, consumer-centric, self cetered-centric?  Small joke.  I guess I'm headed towards being a  Broker-centric, but not by choice.I'm providing all kinds of tools for my agents.  Contact management, Website, drip email, leads, new home subdi...
4 months ago, I decided to quit designing my site myself, and use a template.  On my 4th provider now (think I'm really happy, finally), but I've created LOTS of pages that aren't any long associated with my site.  I own the domain, and re-assigned it on every move.  Naturally, each provider had ...
I've discovered a new toy (I love finding them really).  I've looked at Blackberry, Treo, MS Mobile, and I keep getting gun shy, and wondering how long before I'll need PC tablet, and of course keep it running in the car until an email comes in.  BECAUSE  -  -  we have 1 hour (the Golden Hour) to...
