Hey, it’s a blog!
Hi Everyone, (well mostly just me so far, because no one else is reading this yet, but you may eventually scroll way down here.)
I guess I should write a little bit about myself here. I’m a nerd… Yes I admit it. Some people try and substitute the word geek thinking that geeks are above nerds, but geeks are just nerds with self esteem issues. I love “Technology” even though I think people use it as a buzz word too often. I’m in year number 8 of this Real Estate gig and while it doesn’t have the rockstar lifestyle I imagined when I started, it sure is a lot of fun. My other professional passtime is as an auctioneer. It is another “job” that doesn’t usually feel like work.
I spent the day yesterday at a Real Estate Conference and Tradeshow listening to people speak about technology. Those of you who know me understand that I’m typically more interested in “Bleeding Edge” technology than stuff that is just on the brink. So I decided to step out and barge into a session already in progress. It was all about Social Media and how it’s going to change the world of Real Estate. I can see the advantages of prospecting new clients from social media, but I don’t really see the value to the client in it. Then again, I’ve decided to finally start a blog (like everyone else) for much of the same monetary reasons. Go ahead, say it…. HYPOCRITE.
What else…. Maybe a little bit of Caveat Emptor on my writing “style”. Believe it or not, I’m not a classically trained writer. I still refuse to use a spell checker even though it’s right up there. I’ll often be deep in thought during my writing and and include various words twice. I still don’t understand the difference between an “an” and an “a” even though I seem to use them properly while speaking. At least I can offer you a money back guarantee.
Go ahead, comment. I dare you. Let me know you were here.
