My Day with Max, the HomeGain Gorilla

After many months of waiting, Max, the HomeGain Gorilla, agreed to meet and spend the day with me. The plan: to uncover the life of a spokes-gorilla and learn more about our friend Max (no monkey business).

I was able to catch Max in between press appearances. Max and I took the HomeGain Jet to an undisclosed location and began our day at the local Starbucks, where we casually discussed his HomeGain role, thoughts on blogging, agent tips for this market, etc.

I briefly mentioned that I’m looking to make the most of this market and have been considering options for moving up. Max gladly booted up his laptop and showed me how to utilize the tools on HomeGain to estimate my home’s value. We also contacted an agent and found a couple of great listings in my area. Max even accompanied me to an open house.

Anyway, here’s the skinny on Max: Continue reading this post

Blogging Against Homegain and HomeGain Against Blogging

In the past two weeks since I’ve posted The Case Against Blogging and The Failed Promise of Real Estate 2.0, I’ve learned that I don’t know too much about blogging and that many bloggers don’t know too much about HomeGain.

I’d like to thank the many bloggers who are assisting HomeGain and myself in our education about blogging, including:

  • Our Guest Bloggers: Brian B., Joe F., Mary M., Pat K., Nicole N., Jay T., Kevin B., and Diane C.
  • Comment contributors to the HomeGain Blog: : Todd C, Brian Bl. Sara B., Missy C., Mitch R., Tony V., Anne Marie C., Rebecca L., Ken S., Laurie M., John F., Steve M., John M. Jerry R., Bob M., Rudy B. and Rich J.
  • Sellsius Real Estate Blog: Greg T. and Teresa B.

I look forward to our continued conversations.

Thanks again.

Urban Myths about Real Estate Blogging

Since I speak in front of many real estate agents who don’t know a thing about blogs, I hear the same urban myths associated with blogs.

These myths seem to be circulating among real estate agents as a way to halt the spread of blogging in the real estate industry. Why? Some real estate agents who don’t believe they can blog, or just don’t want to see bloggers as their competition, are threatened by the success stories and buzz associated with blogging.

The urban myths get started in part as a way to preserve the status quo.

I admire and congratulate Louis, Jessica and their team for developing a blog forum on HomeGain, particularly when blogging (for lead generation) is perceived to be directly competitive to HomeGain’s business model of selling leads. And Louis knows it… Louis’ post, The Case Against Blogging is a direct poke… he defines by exclusion some of the obvious qualifications needed to Continue reading this post
