GreenPearl’s Real Estate Social Marketing Panel 4-7-09 6pm

April 6, 2009 | 12:51 pm | | Public |

I never thought to myself, gee, I’m going to go out and do some social marketing/networking, like it’s a New Year’s resolution. It just sort of happened and I am not sure how or why, but it’s here and it is powerful – and it is fun.

I began the blogging thing with Matrix and Soapbox back in 2005 and then expanded into:
and now podcasting at TheHousingHelix.com

Frankly, I have no plan other than to try to push out good content with my persona attached to it.

Ryan Slack – founder of GreenPearl, invited a group of social networking types (don’t see myself as one, but I am I suppose) to a fun forum tomorrow night – moderated by Quinn & Co.’s digital media manager, Allie Herzog – at the M1-5 Lounge at 52 Walker Street, Manhattan. I am excited about the group and plan to take (mental) notes.

  • Doug Heddings, Senior Vice President Elliman, top broker and viral video guru
  • Rick Rochon, Founder Adsymetrix.com, social advertising expert
  • Rob Hahn, Vice President Marketing Onboard Informatics, interactive marketing pro
  • Phil Thomas Di Giulio, Co-founder WellcomeMat.com, Twitter master, guerrilla marketing expert

There are some seats available – to attend, you simply register here.


[From The 92Y] Making Sense of Manhattan Real Estate

January 26, 2009 | 12:46 am | Public |

This will be either the fifth or sixth year (I’ve lost track) that Paul Purcell and Kathy Braddock of Braddock and Purcell have organized a panel discussion (that includes me) on the state of the Manhattan residential market at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan.

The event has sold out each time, so get your tickets early. I participate in this event because its fun – Paul is a great moderator. Also, the 92Y is a fantastic resource to explore with a wide array of programs. Their 92Y Blog is very well done and worth checking out. Its been on my Matrix blogroll for quite a while.

They have also invited Pamela Liebman, president and CEO of the Corcoran Group as well as Alan Rosenbaum, president of Guard Hill Financial, a mortgage broker. I’ve known Pam for much of my career – beginning when she was an agent and I was just starting out as an appraiser. My firm has been hired periodically by Alan’s firm but I don’t know him that well so I am looking forward to his insights mortgages and underwriting.

The event will be held on Thu, Mar 5, 2009, 8:15pm-9:30pm at the East 92nd St/Lexington Avenue location.

[Tonight] A Trifecta Evening In Long Island City

September 18, 2008 | 2:28 pm | | Public |

Long Island City has been one of those segments of the New York City real estate market that has quietly experienced fairly broad consumer acceptance in a short period of time. This is evidenced by the large level of purchase activity over the past several years in response to new development efforts. As a result, residential support services are entering the market at an impressive pace.

Located in Queens, Long Island City has signifiant linkage to Manhattan. The new residential condominium developments in Long Island City are generally selling for roughly half the price per square foot of similar product in Manhattan and yet is only a few minutes away from Manhattan via subway. (That’s how I plan to get there tonight.)

At 6:30 this evening, Dottie Herman, CEO of Prudential Douglas Elliman and I will first speak at The Powerhouse Condominium and then at 7:30 we will speak at L Haus Condominium to the brokers attending the event. Her firm’s New Homes Development Group is handling the marketing of both developments plus a nearby property that is already being marketed called The Foundry and they are included in the event as well.

Should be fun.

[In The Media] 4Realz Roundtable Government Solutions To The Housing Situation

July 17, 2008 | 11:58 pm | Public |

Dustin Luther scores a coup, getting the Lawrence Yun, controversial NAR Chief Economist, to be the guest on his 4Realz podcast conference call along with moi, Rhonda Porter and Jillayne Schlicke .

What’s just as interesting as the guest speakers is the chat room dialog during the discussions. It prompts Dustin’s questions and allows “murmuring” during each answer.

I got the feeling that everyone wanted to pounce on Larry but never did. Do I call him Larry? Dr. Yun? Mr. Yun? Larry was unfettered.

4realz Roundtable: Effect of FDIC/Treasury Actions on Home Buyers and Real Estate Industry

Of course I was a few minutes late to the call as is my tradition (sorry Dustin!).

Check out the discussion

Thanks again Dustin – see you in San Fran!

[Gettin’ Heavy] Real Estate Connect San Francisco 2008

June 5, 2008 | 12:01 am | | Public |

The upcoming Inman Real Estate Connect San Francisco conference is a must see event for real estate professionals, plus it is in San Francisco, one of my favorite places. Check out the deal for bloggers.

Inman News has been touting the wide swath of speakers as:

  • The Best and the brightest;
  • Real estate industry’s champions; and
  • Industry heavyweights

Ok, ok. I get the hint. I need to lose a few pounds….

Inman Real Estate Connect is great because it attracts decision makers and innovators. I always learn something a lot and meet many great people.

Brad, Joel, Jessica and company know how to run an event.

On Friday in the main conference venue, I’ll be participating in the last panel discussion of the conference:

When Will the Housing Market Turn?

  • Alex Perriello, CEO, Realogy
  • Joel Singer, EVP, CAR
  • Jonathan Miller, Co-Founder, Miller Samuel
  • Patrick F. Stone, Chairman, The Stone Group

Should be a great time.



[Reuters Housing Summit] Concentrated Real Estate Snippets

February 21, 2008 | 10:34 pm | Public |

I was invited to participate in the Reuters Housing Summit this week (which happened to be during my vacation and how cool is it to talk about housing when you are taking time off from work?) It was quite an interesting experience – I thoroughly enjoyed it. Each participant gets grilled for an hour by Reuters senior editors and reporters. I felt I needed another twenty four hours to address all the housing issues of the day, but alas, it was my vacation. The interviews were recorded and snippets were released as audio files.

Check out:the summit blog for more interviews and the housing section of the Reuters site.

And to continue with the shakey market theme (supposedly) our satellite was intentionally shot down and an earthquake struck northwestern Nevada.

In other words, a good week for a vacation.
