NARdigras: Beads, Booze and Herman
It was a whirlwind weekend in New Orleans for NARdigras, the National Association of Realtors Conference! My 2 topics were I ♥ Videoblogging and Pop Culture & Real Estate: How Media has changed the Role of the Agent.
Being in a sea of realtors, I was amazed perfect strangers recognized me from www.HabitatforHermanity.com (like the gals at Agent Image). Todd Carpenter, Manager of Social Media for the National Association of Realtors, also called me out as a blogger and we had a lovely chat. Check out his video of me for RealtorTV on the right. I later met up with Mike Aubrey, Host of HGTV's Real Estate Intervention, who is just a good egg. And then I conversated with my gal pal Wendy Cole, Senior Editor at Realtor Magazine, who says she hopes my article will be published January 2012. It wasn't all work! I partied at the Young Professionals Networking Event as well as the Better Homes & Garden bash at the W Hotel, with BHG CEO Sherry Chris & VP Wendy Forsythe.
A big thank you to Kodak for inviting me to speak, along with other renowned Real Estate Influencers like Terri Murphy, Nicole Nicolay, Shannon King, Bob Corcoran, etc. Kodak's got an amazing array of stuff for Realtors! For example, if you want to be a videoblogger like me or David Snook, start off with KODAK Zi8 Pocket Video Camera that shoots in HD. Pretty snazzy. It comes in black, aqua or raspberry. The businessman in me wanted the black, but the businesswoman in me wanted the raspberry.....of course I went with the raspberry!
RealtorTV interviews me at 0:55-1:25. Enjoy!
