Attn: RedX Users - Question: Can you set up your search to go back through expired listings 3-5 years ago? There are homes that failed to sell then that have not come back on the market...and NOW is the time to consider selling. Love some input from RedX Rock Stars as I am a RedX Newbie in Training.
Question - If you could get rid of Facebook, would you? Let me preface by saying I get business from Facebook. We've closed 7 transactions YTD, not to mention the awesome networking. But, wouldn't it be nice if all the business networking was on LinkedIn so Facebook could be friends, family and clients vs. 80% Realtors and industry contacts? Just tired of missing updates from those I would like to follow as a result of being bombarded with political opinions, cat photos and comments from "friend of a friend" I don't know. Sorry, just annoyed with Facebook this morning and cannot help but think there is a better place for industry networking on line
Hey, Michael, I know I'm sort of bending the rules here - and feel free to delete this if you feel I've crossed the line - but I wanted to let people know about the 3rd Annual REBarCamp St. Louis on October 17th. If your in or around the area, love to see the Raise The Bar Rock Stars. We will have a gathering the night before for out of towners (WordPress has been the initial request, theme is TBD). Check it out http://rebarcampstlouis.eventbrite.com/ If you Tweet about the event hashtag #rebcstl
Anyone out there use a 3rd party company to coordinate showings? It's common in our market. Listen to this First! An agent requested a showing on a listing that expired in October 2008 (yep, 2008!). I received a call from our Showing Company and explained there must be an error as the property is not listed. I sent the agent an email to inquire why she attempted to schedule the showing in the first place. Have not heard back. I checked the MLS, inactive. Google search, nothing came up. Tonight, I received a call from the owner threatening legal action as "there is fraud going on". He could not have been a bigger a$$hole over the phone and hung up on me as I tried to gather his information to follow up. Their condo is #303. Currently, #203 and #302 are Active in the MLS, has to be an error. I do not see how I am responsible for what is the equivalent of a misdial/wrong number. I don't receive angry calls, so I take it a little more seriously than I probably should. Please chime in case I'm missing something.
Revision would terrific, totally agree! Peter We have a RETS feed (compliments of Sid), but setting it up as a nightmare and very challenging thus the reason few agents have one (most are IDX from their broker).
Attitude! I will reduce (and eventually eliminate the phrase "WTF" when dealing with an awful co-op agent and work towards helping them become better. i.e. trying to reduce & eventually remove F-Bombs from my daily vernacular.
RE BarCamp Is always great and invigorating. Some of the best classes I have taken still fall within CRS....Ed Hatch teaches s great class about building your referral business. I took the course several years ago and it still has a positive affect on how I build and retain my referral clients
I have GRI, ePRO, ABR and CRS. By far, I make the most money off my CRS. It's not about the money however on this one for me. I truly completely utterly changed my business because of CRS. It's the only one I promote myself with.
As a friendly reminder, I think it's kosher to have a GENERAL conversation like we've had so far regarding the overall logic of how we're compensated, but I don't think we can discuss any specifics about 'what we'd do' or anything along those lines. I am sure Bill Lublin will be arriving shortly to either confirm or deny what I am writing here... ;)
