Real Estate Marketing = World’s Best Cup of Coffee

I  love Elf.  Great movie and arguably the best movie that Will Ferrell carried on his own. Wedding Crashers was great, as was Old School, but he wasn’t the star in those films.  Anyway, I digress… I was thinking of that movie while  viewing a competitor’s video where they took some major liberties with the [...]

Coldwell Banker Affordability Bracket

I love this time of year. It’s March Madness. Everyone’s filling out brackets, and so many college towns are brimming with anticipation. I love these communities and have an affinity for all things college basketball. I was born in Pac-10 country (Fort Huachuca, Arizona), lived in the epicenter of the Big 10 (Columbus, OH), went [...]

I want my MTV…just in real estate this time.

MTV just changed their logo after 30 years and dropped the “Music Television” line under the big “M”. UGH, I’m getting old.

Men vs Women: A Difference in Real Estate Opinion

When you go through a winter like we have had in New Jersey, forecasts of 50 degree temperatures in the first weekend of March are reason for optimism. And Mother Nature came through in a big way. What a weekend! I’ve lived in a bunch of different places (NJ, California, Tennessee) and there is nothing [...]

Do You Trust your Brand?

Toyota is learning this the hard way…the massive recall has the potential of undoing 40 years of industry-leading, awe-inspiring brand building in one fell swoop (Come clean:  I used to work for Nissan North America and was always envious of their great work).  What they knew and when they knew it is a big deal [...]

SciFi is Becoming a Real Estate Reality

Remember a few years ago when the “wired” home was a big selling point. It came ready with internet ports, multimedia stations, central hard drives in the basement and all the trimmings of tech goodness. Well, that’s so 2004. Welcome to a new decade where wireless rules and digital sharing of information in the home [...]
