Learning to Blog 101 – Seminars For Realtors

Today was an exciting day. It was my first seminar sharing my experiences of Real Estate Blogging.

After joining Keller Williams, I learned the T.E.A.M. philosophy where Together Everyone Achieves More. I attended class after class of top producers sharing their scripts, methods and business models. I ask them why they do it. Their answer was simply, “The more I share and teach, the better I get”.

I was skeptical at first. I thought, why should I share my techniques and secrets of making money? As I attended more of the top producers classes, I started to achieve higher levels of success. Did my success take business away from the top producers? The answer is No… not only did I not take business away from them, their business got even bigger.

As I started to gather my material for my Blogging Class, I began to understand how this will also benefit me. To teach blogging, I had to know more about blogging than just using the blogs. I had to update myself with the newest tools and produce a complete blog for an example.

Today in our first ever Blogging Class, I had everyone bring their laptops. We went through the steps of setting up a WordPress Blog, choosing a domain name, choosing a theme and publishing their first post.

The seminar will resume after the new year on Friday January 6th 2012.

The seminar is open to all TREB members. Email me to reserve your spot.

Location: 17 Church Avenue, North York (Yonge / Finch)

Date and Time: Every Friday 11am-noon

I Married a Real Estate Agent!

Hello everyone, I’m Carrie, Kirby’s Wife and the mother of Rhys (Future Real Estate Agent as per Kirby)

It is challenging and strange to have a Real Estate Agent as a Husband and a Father. This post idea came up yesterday during Kirby’s day off. Was it really a day off? He took us to see 3 homes for a client of his. We picked up the key at a Real Estate office on Main Street Unionville. There, we watched a choir playing, passing by in the car. We also saw Too Good Pond, passing by in the car.

Kirby comes from a Real Estate family (Father, Mother, Uncle and Brother), so this is all normal to him. They are all workaholics and when his family get together, they all talk about Real Estate, Flipping Homes or the Stock Market.

I’ve compiled a list of things I now do after being married to a Real Estate Agent.

  • Going to Agent’s open house for lunch.
  • Seeing an open house sign, hit the brakes turn in.
  • Going to London, Stratford, Waterloo, Orlando etc… while Kirby goes to a Real Estate Conference.
  • Texting Kirby when he’s sitting next to me because he’ll respond faster.
  • Hunting down receipts he hides around the house.
  • MLS listings recycled into Coasters.
  • Business cards in my purse, locked and loaded.
  • Driving in a Kirby Chan advertisement wrapped car (Hasn’t happened yet but coming soon…)
  • Wearing matching Kirby Chan Real Estate Team T-Shirts.
It’s challenging and strange but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Keep up the great work Kirby! Love your blog and happy to be a part of it now. Any other Real Estate Wives out there that would care to share your experiences?
