by Drew Meyers on 10:56 am April 8, 2011

The “365 Things to Do in [City Name]” concept worked for a few people like Dale Chumbley who made it the whole way though. What’s the the next big thing agents/brokers are going to try on Facebook to gain traffic and engagement? Here’s an idea — how about a “365 Things to Do Worldwide” that highlights amazing things to do all over the world?

by Drew Meyers on 3:41 pm March 12, 2011

Fair Warning: for the advanced techies reading this, you’ll want to gloss right over this post. And I won’t hold it against you. How many of you have been added to a Facebook Group without your permission? It’s happened to me, and I’ve done it to friends. In most cases, it’s someone you know that’s added you to a group they feel you should be part of. Likely, you find the group valuable and want to be a part of it, but sometimes a specific … Read More »

by Justin Britt on 1:01 pm February 3, 2011

Shortly after Google announces they will be removing real estate listings from their maps, Zillow and Yahoo Real Estate’s long awaited partnership goes live today. Is this strictly a coincidence?

On one of the MLS committees I sit on in Maui, … Read More »

Today, I’m here to talk about RSS feeds as they relate to MLS data. RSS Feeds + … Read More »

This was not the case for every page, if you happened to have over 10,000 “likes” (fans) you could still set your tabs… <yeah, right> Upon hearing the … Read More »
