I would like to let you know who I am and what I am doing with this weblog.
My name is Bill Nadraszky. I was a Realtor a few years ago for three years and left the industry to persue my passion for computers and the internet. I was not the greatest Realtor but was always intrigued with the marketing and still made 100 or 120 cold calls a day to try to ring up more business.
My mother, Carol Nadraszky is a Realtor here in Calgary and has now been a Realtor for 12 years which is why I still care about Real Estate. My moms business had always been offline and although I created her first couple of websites I have never been happy with their performance. I talk big about what should and should not be done online with web marketing and I am sorry to say for the real estate industry that a lot of other industries leave us in the dust as far as making sites that work comes in.
Over the last four years I have spent a lot of time observing, reading, and testing the latest fads and ideas about internet marketing and although I am not a guru by any means I have seen and learned a lot and laughed at a lot that I have seen as well.
I am going to use this weblog as a forum to vent about what I believe works and what does not work in Real Estate marketing online and maybe even sometimes offline (bus benches and most slogans drive me crazy). My attitude offline tends to be a little quiet unless I am at a family gathering but I believe you will find my opinions a bit stronger than that.
I hope you like what you see and take it for what it is worth. My goal is really to put my ideas out there and if something you see sticks great, if it does not at least I hope it will give you pause for thought.
