The study of real estate practices and related organisms.
In light of yesterday's lawsuit, I think that it is an appropriate time to talk about online reputation and what  I think real estate blogging should include.  Real estate is a relative late comer to the blogosphere, but the concept has spread like wildfire because there is great demand for real ...
Ok, the title is corny, but the sentiment remains.  There are many good people here in Active Rain and I have been fortunate to meet more than a few since joining in April.   I am more fortunate still to have had some of these bloggers migrate over to join me at EWM.I am pleased to announce that ...
In this market of excess inventory and slow moving listings, it is not uncommon for brokers to offer a higher than usual cooperating commission to entice other agents to come and show their listings. While I certain appreciate the lure of the higher commissions, I can't help but think... who doe...

As part of my pitch to get our agent's on board for the upcoming company blog, I have been encouraging participation in Active Rain.  To date, 170+ of our associates have taken me up on that.  About 30 or so have actually posted more than one post and I get more calls and emails from people yet t...
Did you ever wonder what it would be like to stand in front of your office group and hold a sales meeting?  Although you may think you have never had this experience - you probably have and just didn't know it.I am in the process of building a company blog and have begun to post about the process...
First rule of real estate management, don't ever discuss Floor Time in a sales meeting.  If you have ever stepped into this mess you know it's true. So, at the risk of stepping into a pile of controversy... do you think a company blog can be virtual floor time?I have started writing in my other b...
