In essence,…

“So, how’s the real estate market, Jason?” – Presenting the unvarnished truth

Tweet I must hear this question 20 times or more each week from friends, family, and casual acquaintances.  “So, how’s the market?”  I know that people are genuinely curious, so I endeavor to give them the truth, rather than glossing things over.  I am not of the always-say-it’s-great school of thought on this. Here’s my…

Making Progress in HR 3200!

Tweet This is part seven in my ongoing series of posts, as I read through the entirety of HR 3200 (which is 1017 pages as of this writing).  I’m sorry that I haven’t taken the time to jazz up these posts with graphics, etc.  I guess the content doesn’t really lend itself to funny pictures…

Hutto, Texas Land & House for Sale – 4804 CR 123 – $209,000

Tweet One of my agents listed a home with 5 acres in Hutto the other day.  I thought it would be worth featuring here as well.  If you are looking for an acreage home in Hutto, this would be worth considering. This place has low taxes (barely 2%) and you can bring your horses, too!…

Book Project Update – There’s Still an Opportunity for YOU to Get Published!

Tweet I wrote in August about a book that I am working to get placed with a New York publisher about social media success stories, both in real estate and related industries.  I fixed a deadline for this, which I have a feeling may have intimidated some people who wanted to contribute.  I also have…

No, I really haven’t forgotten about it – Thanks for asking, though!

Tweet It has been 8 days since my last post about HR 3200.  I wanted to give a very quick update – I haven’t given up on this project, or forgotten about it.  I do want to thank those of you who have taken the time to ask when the next installment will be forthcoming. …

Listen to Our Great Talk with Paul Chaney, Author of “The Digital Handshake” (Book Launched TODAY!)

Tweet On today’s Social Media Edge radio show, Ken Cook and I had a chance to speak with Paul Chaney, author of the brand-new book “The Digital Handshake : Seven Proven Strategies to Grow Your Business Using Social Media”.  We were privileged to have some time with Paul on the day of his book’s official…

Memories at ActiveRain – Learning the Value of Community

Tweet I still remember when I started “actively” (pun intended) writing and commenting on AR, back in August 2007.  Once I took the time to start really exploring this network, I was hooked.  There was so much information at my fingertips – it was like having a stack of textbooks available anytime I needed an…

Lunch with ActiveRain Friends!

Tweet Not too long ago, during the Keller-Williams Mega Camp here in Austin, my friend Ryan Shaughnessy of the St. Louis area had contacted me to see if we could get together for lunch.  I also had a chance to meet Marie Westerman of Georgia for about an hour.  Marie mentioned that I was one…
