Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

#ICYMI Friday 9.4.20

There was a one of those challenges on Twitter – “Share a picture from January 2020 that shows you had no idea what was coming.” Here’s mine (and if I remember correctly that was just the beginning of a great night):

W+R and NTREIS New York City, January 2020

Dotloop and C.A.R. struck a deal. Is Marnie going to retire now?

Jessica Swesey from 1000watt tells us, “This is not the end”. Thank you, Jessica, I needed this.

I was attending/presenting at the Tom Ferry’s virtual Success Summit. Tom is a marvel, and I really liked this “hack” he uses at his event. Tom realizes that unless he is engaged with his audience they aren’t engaged with him.

More home sales in 2020 than in 2019. Wait, what?

Bob Evans

Congrats to Bob Evans on his new role as head of the Industry Relations Group at realtor.com.

Enjoy the long weekend everyone. Take care of each other.

#ICYMI Friday 8.14.20

I’ve seen the above video above multiple times and it still makes me laugh out loud every time. It was created to promote a webinar being held next week targeted to brokers to help their agent avoid Zoom blunders. If you are interested please register here.

I didn’t get a lot of posting done this week, but there were still a few things going on in the industry.

I got the first copy of my book, The Art of the CMA. I found a few typos. ????

The National Association of REALTORS announced the promotion of Andréa Moore, to Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion and Talent Opportunity. More like this, please!

Kerry Rakuson has joined Prospects Software as Director of Implementations. Congrats Kerry! Charles has put together a really great team.

LionDesk and a few other real estate companies made the Inc 5000 list. LionDesk ranked #360, which is super impressive for a first-timer. Woolley Robertson Group, Inc. d/b/a W+R Studios wasn’t listed in the Inman article but also, just barely, made the list at 4,484. It was our sixth seventh time in a row, I might need a bigger wall. ????

I missed this news before but Katie Lance was recently chosen by RE/MAX to do social media training. Congratulations!

Regardless of your politics I still think this is pretty cool. ????????

From the Wall Street Journal: Stir-Crazy Travelers Are Ordering Airline Food to Relive the Flying Experience. I’m not to that point…yet.

Enjoy your weekend!
