Rogers & @kaitlinechu
I remember Rogers Healy in 2007. Boy, do I remember him. I had just started my brainchild blog, “Dallas Dirt”, over at D Magazine. Most of the agents in town were not super excited, mostly because they had no idea how technology was about to shift the real estate industry. But I did. I had seen the writing on the wall and knew that as print media rode off into the sunset, it would take old real estate print ads with it. Adios.
Was talking to a friend tonight who has a contract on his home. He is looking for another. Is he sitting with a pile of magazines or newspapers looking at the listings? Hell no, he is on the internet surfing for his next home. And that’s where he will start to find it.
In 2007, I remember that many agents not only had no idea what a blog was, they couldn’t even pronounce the word, so they called it a “blob”! (more…)
