My former partner Victor Lund did an outstanding study recently that showed what a poor job many agents are doing in responding to buyer leads.  The study, done with the Weichert lead network, looked at lead responsiveness in over 384 brokers across 11 states.  In the study, researchers posing as consumers contacted these brokers about listings on broker websites, Zillow, and Trulia.  The results are stunning and show how much potential their is agents to...

  It’s official, Zillow announced today that will buy Trulia, for $3.5 billion in stock.  The expected close date is sometime in 2015.  So what does this all mean for the rank and file real estate professionals from big brokers to individual agents?  We discussed this very possibility at the Real Estate Webmasters summit last week and several possible scenarios were shared as well as the overall impact that supporting Zillow and Trulia has on real estate busine...

Several months ago I was presented an award for "workplace excellence" by the Nanaimo Chamber Of Commerce (something I am extremely proud of).
