If you are an agent wondering how to get more business in todays’s technology driven real estate resale market, then look no further.
I make the bold claim that I can help you be more productive using tools that you already have. My extensive background in real estate sales and listings, my deep technology background and understanding, and my real world experience in using social media marketing to drive new client acquisition is un-matched in the industry.
As part of my public speaking at the local, state, national and international levels I have authored courses on social media marketing that help agents find and convert leads into business.
Finally, I author a weekly blog, http://www.RealtyTechBytes.com which, each week, presents a new article on a new tech tool, new uses for old tools or sales tips and techniques. The blog has been in publication since 2007 and has over 600 articles. I have a worldwide readership of over 2,000 real estate industry professionals.
Please take a moment to review my qualifications below to see if any of my background and experience can help you with your business!
Then, let’s get together for a no obligation conversation about how I can help you.
