Going to San Francisco Next Week

Next week I will be sitting on a panel Real Estate Connect San Francisco 2008.

I actually have to work next week as well (there’s more to the real estate life than blogging and conferences), so I will unfortunately be missing Beer with Bloggers and RE BarCamp.

The panel on which I’ll be sitting is one that, to me is fascinating and intriguing, particularly in today’s market where there is an ongoing seismic shift away from Realtors’ core competencies being “searching for/finding homes” to “representation of clients’ best interests.” There is a lot to discuss and I expect that forty-five minutes won’t be nearly enough time.

This should be interesting.

This is the third time I have been invited to speak at Inman Connect, and every time I learn something new.

– In San Francisco 2007 I spoke about the benefits of local blogging

– Earlier this year in New York City I was on a panel titled, “Blogging, a Fresh Take on Client Prospecting

* I despise writing stories with “I” as one of the core elements, but writing this post in the third person would have been a bit odd (and perhaps arrogant sounding)

    Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

    Nope. The only way they would stay is if I used duct tape on my dome. Not going to happen. 🙂
