Does the World Need Another Real Estate Blog?

Real Estate Blog
Refreshed and invigorated from attending Inman Connect in San Francisco this week, now is a good time to write an inaugural blog post on my brand new website (Thanks Style Agent)!  For my non-real estate readers, Inman Connect is like TED Talks for the real estate industry.

One of my big AH-HA moments from attending Inman Connect this week, was the reminder that my real estate practice is about you, my clients and friends, and not me. I’ve always known deep down, but I didn’t know how to express it. The words kept hitting me and took deep meaning this week. I’ll say it again… It’s about you, not me. And I don’t mean the “It’s not you, it’s me” break-up line.

You might get a good laugh at my title  “Does the World Need Another Real Estate Blog?” Blogging seems so 2005, especially another blog on a real estate website, but my blog will be different. I promise.

Here’s my promise for this blog:

  1. I will listen to YOU, the readers
  2. I will post about the communities YOU live in
  3. I will profile our community members YOU work with
  4. I will research companies/services/products YOU want to hear about (but not a commercial because we all fast forward those anyways)
  5. I will try to make YOU laugh because we all need a good laugh

Comment on what you’d like for my second blog post to be about…

First responder picks my subject. I’m serious, YOU get to pick. Fire away, I’m listening.

    Hey Alana,
    Great first post! I think you could do a survey…find out what your readers want…or could do an interview of a client you just helped..either sell or buy…so everybody knows how you work… and what was good/needs to improve! Or you could showcase your mom!! (Haha) That was your humor for today!
    Anyway, Good job (and not just because I am your mom) and keep it up!
    xoxo Mom

    Congrats on your new blog! I worked at Inman for a few years and always enjoyed going to Connect. Did you Katie Lance speak?
    For the subject of the next blog, how about something about San Carlos schools (new Arroyo School maybe?)

        Hi Alana, Great! Katie is an old co-worker/friend from the Inman days.
        Looking forward to hearing about Arroyo. I saw Mark also did the new outdoor classroom at White Oaks, looks great!

    You go Alana! Quality content is always needed. I was just describing your passion and background to my cousin. Your clients are lucky to have you.
