Has Technology Made Us Lazy?

My opinion? Absolutely 110% yes!

We are bombarded with marketing for the latest and the greatest every single day of our lives, from the coffee we gulp to the cars we drive to tools we use to run our business.

As technology propels forward, new CRE tools pop up more often than Nicki Minaj gets her Botox fix. I get new offers in my email, through social media and…

Sandy and CRE - Friends or Foes?

As both families and sand continue to be moved back to their rightful home and power companies from all over the east coast and beyond desperately work all hours to restore normalcy for many, the northeast is still very much in “limbo”.  I attended a conference this past weekend at the Wilmington DoubleTree. I broke away for a moment for a cup of caffeine and to my amazement…

Stayin' Alive

Let's explore some of the recent retailers' strategic efforts to keep their groove on the dance floor.

Forgive the John Travolta reference, but I feel it befits the current slew of desperate efforts on behalf of the major retailers to remain current and viable in this economy.

Stick or Automatic? What is your #CRE Social Media style?

I prefer manual transmissions, even when it comes to communication transmissions.

Ah it brings me back to the good old days. Fast cars, throaty exhaust systems, American racing wheels with tires that seduced the driver as much as they did the road itself. When I was in high school, stick shifts were more popular. The reason for all of this reminiscing and banter is an overall theme: Controlled…

New Digs & Change of Venue or a Look-Alike Contest - You Be the Judge

NAR has established many partnerships over the years. They have paired up with big boys such as Dell, Docusign, Lenovo and Zerox, enhancing the benefits for membership. The most recent brotherhood is one that poses some questions by some. Xceligent has been "widening their tent pegs" for some time now, broadening their national platform. Mirroring some of the product…

Open Office: Innovation or Distraction?

As new technology emerges, commercial real estate trends follow suit with departures from the traditional models. “Open Offices” emanate the professional landscape – a contemporary rendition of “cubicle culture” as it is referred to. With this resurgence of a classic, similar challenges present themselves in more augmented ways.

To begin, let us weigh the cons. Though…

Care to Dance?

When analyzing the current economy and market conditions, often times Commercial Real Estate and Residential Real Estate are assimilated in the reports. Although similar, they are often found dancing to different “tunes” on the same dance floor. What I mean by this is that although they are operating simultaneously in a wavering economy, they are…

But Everyone Else is Doing It...

I know you can hear it. Your mother's tension in her vocal chords as she blurts "Just because everyone else is doing it doesn't mean you have to do it. If they all were going to jump off a bridge, would you jump too?"

In Commercial Real Estate, there are certain things that make sense, certain things that work when it comes to marketing your brokerage or your listings. The challenging question running through your mind is, "How do I know what works and what doesn't?"

I cannot…

The Effect of Social Media on the Real Estate Industry

We have yet to realize the true effect that Social Media continues to have on the Real Estate Industry as a whole. Social Media is the "in thing", the "now", what's "hot". We are so intrigued with all of the buzz surrounding it that we willingly welcome it's companionship along the many avenues that it can take us. However, without due diligence and true understanding of what…

2012: BE the Gamechanger - Part II

Now the don’ts: Don’t sign up for everything. EVERYONE claims to be the Grand Poobah of whatever they do…that’s marketing at its best. Not every website or real estate service is going to have VALUE for you. You have to determine this for yourself. Research those companies, perform FREE demos when available, try before you buy. Poll your colleagues in this industry and find…

The Role of Demographics in Real Estate

How important are demographics in the scheme of REAL ESTATE? Huge my friend...huge. Demographic trends determine the destiny of real estate, the economy and even politics to some extent. They drive the machine.

As the first batch of "Baby Boomers" now reach age 65, the face of the US Population is changing rapidly. Also, primarily due to economic conditions, they remain part of the active workforce. In 2018, for at least a quarter of the US population, retirement will not be…

Just another day in the life of #CRE

 

 

We've all seen it, from bizarre listing photos to public remarks that sound like the agent is selling cosmetics in a boutique rather than commercial real estate. Misuse of the Multi-Listing Service only creates hassle for the Service and the agent who found you out. It also creates an instant poor impression with your fellow commercial real estate…
