This is an amazing list! And really shows the value added by a professional agent.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) about 5 years ago

Yes, this is EXCELLENT Christine and I indeed suggested (or at least liked).  Yes, they can be a starting place, but that's about it.

Thanks so much Nina Hollander and Debbie Gartner I appreciate the kudos :)

Yeah I love it Christine...how true and the agents you get from them have only making the 'sale' on the mind and covering all those fees they pay for leads!

Zillow, Trulia and other web based real estate sites have given Realtors great help.  They show the public just how improtant the magic we work is for them

Posted by Tony Lewis, RE/MAX Valencia, Stevenson Ranch, Santa Clarita (RE/MAX of Valencia (Hall of Fame) 30 year Valencia Resident) about 5 years ago

They also cannot bring ACCURATE information into the process! Enjoyed the read Christine, thank you!

Good morning Christine,

Well for the life of me I don't understand why this post is not featured! Excellent post! This list is spot on and we all need to develop a similar page for our websites!

Posted by Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR, Serving Buyers & Sellers in NW Austin Real Estate (Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899) about 5 years ago

Thanks Dorie! I appreciate that! Dorie Dillard  I have no idea how the AR gods pick their featured posts or how they would even notice it. Maybe, it has something to do with the likes and comments ??? 

Posted by Christine Pappas - REALTOR®, eXp Realty - Because Experience Matters (eXp Realty) about 5 years ago

If you can't see your value as a real estate agent, it time to re-evaluate. And too much information can be really damaging if misused. Great points!

Posted by Marcus Sensenig (Hostetter Realty) about 5 years ago

Thanks Marcus for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.

Posted by Christine Pappas - REALTOR®, eXp Realty - Because Experience Matters (eXp Realty) about 5 years ago

Great post Christine! Should have been featured!

Zillow and Trulia have their place and can be helpful resourses, however I real estate professional is the BEST resourceful to meet ALL the needs of the consumer!

Thank you Donna Foerster, I appreciate that!

it looks like I missed this one completely Christine Pappas and why wasn't it a FEATURED POST!!!!! just saw it via your link on LEA....

Posted by Barbara Todaro, Marketing Agent for The Todaro Team (RE/MAX Executive Realty ) over 3 years ago

Barbara Todaro - Thank you! I'm not that active on here, so it wouldn't be one to get featured. I think the powers that be tend to feature from those who are known on AR. I'm glad you like it :)
