I'm thrilled to be asked to speak at Real Estate Revive this year! Join me & my friends Nobu Hata, John Reyes & more for this fantabulous event by the Citrus Valley Association of Realtors. I'm gonna talk about how consumer tastes and habits have changed & why the role of Visual Marketing is on the rise (especially in an era when even 140 characters is now too long! Who reads now?!) It'll be fun & informative. I promise!

Business 2 Community sat down with me for their "Expert Interviews" series. They asked me 6 questions about social media & real estate, including what is the biggest challenge facing your industry, w hat do you think is the future of social media & more!

Bay Citizen/New York Times called me last week for my take on a rumor that San Francisco sellers were waiting to list their homes until after the Facebook IPO. They are allegedly counting on thousands of newly minted millionaires and all cash offers on their homes. Rumor or not, Facebook fever is hitting a feverish pitch. One Silicon Valley executive is willing to trade his 10,000 sq ft 11 acre home in Los Gatos for a stake in Facebook! Are you freaking kidding me? Has the Bay Area gone bonkers or is Facebook really that valuable?!
This is a real ad of me, Mr. Hand Model!
