We have seen a lot of comments recently about how we can engage more with our members through social media. We understand that blogs are designed to be both informative and interactive. When we put thoughts here, we want to inspire discussion and comments from you.
Since we started this blog in January, the 2008 Leadership Team has posted a couple of times each week on a broad range of topics, and I am pleased to say that we have received dozens of comments – some positive, some critical. Considering how much we are traveling (I am in Italy right now), we won’t respond to every comment and question, but I assure you that we read ALL of the comments – even if we can’t post them or respond. EVP & CEO Dale Stinton also has been participating in discussions on other real estate blogs.
To all of the REALTORS® who are driving discussion in the blogosphere, I just want to say: “Keep up the great work and please participate in the discussion on this blog.” We want hear from you. I also encourage every member to engage in other ways, at the local, state or national level.
The Voice for Real Estate is not just the NAR Leadership Team, it’s all 1.3 million members. We ARE listening! – Dick Gaylord, 2008 NAR President
