I just got my current 4Imprint catalog. It always makes me look through it and think about which promotional items would work best with our clients. Do they want a pen, a key chain, or a flashlight?

Agents often ask me the benefits of having their face on their cards. This is my response: In my opinion, new agents gain a lot in regards to name/face recognition by having thei face on the cards. When you hand them to people, there is more of a likelihood that a person will remember your face a...
We recently had the opportunity to participate in housing fairs at Northeastern, Suffolk, and Boston University here in Boston. Each of these events hosts between 100 and 200 kids that are looking for fall housing in 2011. To participate, a company must be selected and approved by the off campus ...

It seems that those days have passed for the most part, although buyers are still considered the name of the game to making ...
Interesting concept.... in real estate, we are always looking for our next buyer, renter, investor or seller.... or at least we should be. Our mind is always on the prize... at the supermarket, sporting events, and everywhere else we go. We throw ourselves and cards at people in the hopes they wi...
