When I sold my technology company in 2002 I started looking at business and real estate investments. By 2006 I had acquired enough properties I decided to get licensed as a Realtor in Iowa and sell real estate. My love is Commercial Investment Real Estate primarily apartments, mini-storage and NNN investments.
Although I was now immersed in real estate I never left technology behind and to this day manage a number of sites for my real estate business. My personal real estate site is www.BobRandklev.com. In 2007 I established a partnership with Mike Shaffer and Bob Wilkes to specialize in multifamily apartment investments and we started www.MultiFamilyAssociates.com.
As I’ve worked and watched the real estate industry and technology come together we are at a very exciting time! Realtors are primarily self employed business people. Their broker or company has a big generally very expensive website where each Realtor is listed with their contact information and their property listings. This is great exposure for agents but those who get to the top of the search engines, have their own websites!
There are numerous solutions out there for Realtors, some are free, some are inexpensive and some can be very expensive. You have to first ask yourself as a Realtor what’s more important,
To get found on the Internet search engines you need an extensive website with content being updated on a regular basis. The best way to do that today is via Blogging with connections to Social Networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
