by Seth Williams on 10:54 am October 22, 2015

by Greg Fischer on 2:08 pm July 18, 2012

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer. I have a few longer posts on draft but thought I would share a new website and a budding video star with the Geekestate community. Ha Media has been churning out attractive real estate websites for years. However, their new site for Charlotte broker Scott Hartis at www.liveuptownnow.com is a step in a totally new direction that I think other agents will follow – its a responsive theme powered by the new IDX Broker platinum and is totally tricked … Read More »
