A Big Opportunity To Learn Facebook Marketing --- The Right Way

My August 2011 blog post on Facebook Marketing - Common Blunders Made By Real Estate Agents & Brokers  got a lot comments and reactions from realtors and agents looking to exploit the social network to gain more real estate prospects and leads. 

Learn how to be a Facebook marketing ninja

Aside from the positive and encouraging feedback from that particular blog post, I also got a lot questions on other Facebook marketing best practices applicable for real estate selling. While I am happy to give a lot of more of these tips, I usually end up directing them to google or even visit Facebook's site for more practical and easy ways to attract prospective real estate buyers and increase audience engagement given that the subject is so broad that it will take several posts just to even scratch the surface.

Even with the links I've shared lets admit it: searching and poring over Facebook's guides on the web takes time and can be a boring and dull exercise.Fortunately, Facebook it seems has heard the "cries for help" from professionals and businesses asking for a more comprehensive and engaging way to learn how to use the network to grow their business.

Real Estate Horror Stories Part 1: Sellers From Hell

No, I am not the Crypt Keeper but since Halloween is only a few weeks away I would like to share a few short real estate horror stories to keep up with the season.

These stories (or more accurately: scenarios) are based from my own actual experience as well as those I have witnessed or known first-hand from almost 20 years of working with realtors and agents, property buyers and sellers around the country.

Just a short caveat though, this article is written in the spirit of fun and ghoulish humor with generous sprinkling of truth from various actual cases. I am NOT pinpointing to any person or a group but if you feel alluded to by this post...don't blame me. Blame your conscience (which means you are still a good person since you still have a conscience).
