I have to say, I am officially in love with the Samsung G Note 3 hitting stores in October. The look of the phone is really high-end with leather backing & stitching, and the multi-tasking seems unsurpassed, like we are used to seeing with Samsung. And, oh yeah, the S pen - I think the jury is still out on that feature, but it's more justified with the bigger 5.7 inch screen. Thoughts? http://reviews.cnet.com/smartphones/samsung-galaxy-note-3/4505-6452_7-35827011.html
What I mean is, there was no reason for Google to start a social network. Were people asking for one from them? Would users really take the time to set up something new when their FB profiles were already established? Clearly, the answer is no. Google is good at search engine, email, and Android. Facebook owns 25% of all time spent on mobile apps. Google owns about 1/2 of the rest of the list, but not with G+. http://readwrite.com/2013/01/23/facebook-most-popular-app-comscore
Susan, I just feel that, when the responsibilities of the other agent, who is p/t, start to fall on my lap because they have a 9-5/M-F, the bar is being lowered. Of course, I'm thankful to that agent for bringing a deal, but when I'm splitting my commission with someone, they better do their part to earn it.
My wife and I have actually talked about this many times. She wants to relocate back to MI so she can be closer to her family. Obviously, this is not possible right now, and leaving my solid business behind in NJ would be a mistake. However, I do have a property management company that makes up about 25% of my income. I'm working on expanding that, and one day when it's big enough, the moving to MI discussion will come back up. I want to have that aspect of my business a bit more secure, because that is something I can expand to other states with. The rental market in MI is pretty big, from what I understand. I would use the property management aspect to then jump start my RE business once again.
