Today marks the one month anniversary of the Metro Brokers blog, so I thought I’d find out from you (our readers) just how you think we’re fairing.
I want this blog to remain interesting, educational and more importantly – informative. My hope is that everyone who reads this blog will share it with others (friends, family, clients, and colleagues). I also want visitors to feel compelled to leave comments – send us a question, expand upon the topic with your own experiences, give advice others may be able to use or let us know you’d like to see more written on a particular topic. You may even disagree with us from time-to-time, but we welcome constructive criticism.
Hello and welcome to Metro Brokers’ blog! This is our first post and I’m thrilled to say that Metro Brokers is moving full-speed ahead into Web 2.0. In fact, we’re the first full-service real estate company in Atlanta to have a blog that serves both consumers and Realtors.
Here’s where you’ll find the latest and greatest news on everything real estate related – from home buying and selling tips, to marketing ideas, to technology trends. You can expect posts at least twice a week and probably even more (we have a lot to share).
Most of the posts will come from key staff members, all of whom have many years of experience and knowledge to share (yes, there are many wildly interesting people here…starting with me of course). Check out our profiles and connect with us on social networking sites like LinkedIn, Twitter and Google Profiles.
We plan to make this blog informative and interesting to read. You’ll be able to search for posts by category, date, keyword and by contributor. Plus, we want comments from you on our posts. I encourage you to comment when you have something you’d like to add, something you’d like to see featured, or even if you just want to let us know you found the info useful or interesting.
So bookmark this blog, email it to a friend/colleague/client or add our RSS feed to your favorite reader (i.e., iGoogle, etc.) and stay tuned for more news at Metro Brokers. We want you to keep coming back for an abundance of information you can use.
Here’s a quick look at a few topics you can expect in the coming weeks:
