Davis CA Real Estate | Sacramento CA Real Estate | Carolyn Gjerde-Tu

Real Estate and Networking

In my years of real estate networking I keep getting reminded of my friend Vidal Davis who told me that “it is all about brokering information”.  Having broker contacts who have buyers or sellers and touching those contacts to bring buyers or sellers together.

I met Vidal in my first few months in real estate as I advanced my real estate education by attending the REALTORS Land Institute course on Developing Land in Memphis, TN.  He and I had lots in common including family backgrounds in timber and agriculture.  He lives an hour or so South of Vicksburg in Natchez, MS and I about an hour North in the small agricultural community of Rolling Fork, MS each of which are right along the Mississippi River and surrounded by areas of intensive row crop agriculture, hardwood timber production, and lots of hunting and fishing properties.

MyBlogLog

Blogging is a strange thing.  You write to an audience that is unknown and get traffic from unexpected places with unexpected search terms.  I have been working at blogging for a little over a year.  It is difficult to organize one’s thoughts to deliver to an unknown audience.  When I first began, I was focused on the subject at hand which was real estate.  Then it seemed like I was trying to write and rewrite the same thing over and over with different keywords.  Spam?  Well, not really I was focused on those subjects and they all had common keywords, but it just drained you and took away from a pleasant experience.
