Real Estate Walkabout – Episode I

Okay, I’m back from the Inman Connect conference. The conference was great and W&R Studios was very busy. Dan moderated a workshop called “Connect Tech”, that was well received. Dan was also a judge on two panels, one having to do with new business ideas (Connect LaunchPad) and Connect Create (I’ve already written about this here).

We also took part in StartUp Alley. This was two heavy trafficked sessions where we got a chance to demo Dwellicious to a lot of new people. The response was great!

And as many of you know we (Dwellicious) didn’t win the Inman Innovator Award for “Most Innovative Technology”, that honor went to, so congrats to them. I was kinda bummed, but buoyed by the great feedback we had received at the show. We even got a few unsolicited “shout outs” during the final session!

But enough about the conference, I’ve got a job to do, and that’s to spread the word about Dwellicious and how it can help agents and brokers engage with today’s buyers and sellers!

I have a few stories to tell about a few office visit, but I thought I would start off with something I like to call, “How I roll”.

I use FireFox 3.5 as my primary browser and Tweetie for my Twiiter client on my phone and computer.

My strategy:

I’m going old school.

Drive by local real estate offices and try to get a meeting with the broker. If the broker is not available I leave a Dwellicious Pro Flyer along with my card. Then I follow up later in the week. The end result I hope to do is have a meeting with the broker and get included on their weekly/month sales meetings with their agents.

So that’s how I roll. Check back later this week when I write about my first office drive bys and my first broker meeting.

    I noticed that your registration is current. If you were going true old school your tags would be expired and push-starting a different, older German made vehicle would be required.

    Good luck Greg.

    p.s. Don’t forget the order forms, VGA cable w/ Mac adapter and donuts 🙂

    I’m glad you’re doing the updated version of old school, where you don’t have to push start the car. Good luck with the walk about. I’ll give positive feedback if you want to have any brokers call me for a second opinion. DW

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
