NARdiGras in New Orleans – Come Get A Free 60 Second Video

It’s that time of year once again.  We’re packing up and getting ready to head out to New Orleans for the Annual NAR Convention, ActiveRain RainCamp, and REBarCamp.  I might even get lucky and make it to the Earth, Wind, and Fire concert.  WOW, what an action packed week this is going to be. 

Are you going?  If these aren’t enough great reasons to attend this year, then maybe this will be an added incentive to get you there.  I’m hoping you’ll at least come by and see me at our booth.  Here’s why…

A Free Offer to Zillow Premier Agents Attending NARdiGras

Agents attending the NARdiGras 2010 event in New Orleans are most certainly going to be hearing about the power of video in their Internet marketing and Branding strategies.  We’d like to do something special and unique for our Premier Agents at NARdiGras this year: Help you shoot a free 60 second video!


Zillow has partnered with Yahoo! Real Estate and vscreen to offer you the opportunity and chance to shoot a complimentary 60-second video. Once the video is created and produced, you can include it on your Zillow Profile, ActiveRain Blog, Website or anywhere else you see fit.  Adding video to your online profiles is a great way to personalize your brand and separate yourself from the competition.

Our free video offer will be available to the first 200 Premier Agents who sign up at the Zillow Booth (Booth #645) and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  It’s just one way of saying THANK YOU for your business, while also offering a tool and service that will enhance yours! Come one, come all, but come early and sign up.

See you all in New Orleans! Remember, we’re at the Zillow Booth #645

The Best of NAR 2009 – Here’s a few of the Top Technology Vendors I recorded at last years NAR Convention and Expo.

The Best of NAR 2009 Expo – Real Estate Technology

The Best of NAR 2009 Expo – Real Estate Technology

NAR each year is always packed with great sessions, speakers, topics and presenters.  There’s no way to see and do it all!  One of my favorite parts of the Convention is walking around, meeting people in the hallways, hugging old friends and shaking hands with new ones. This year, William Shatner was one of the special guests at NAR, but unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to sign him up on ActiveRain.

My absolute favorite is “cruisin” the EXPO and seeing all the “NEW” stuff that’s being displayed.  Many of the tools and services presented will have an affect and impact on the ways business will get done now, and in the future.

To See the more than 375 Booths and vendors that were there, here’s an interactive floor-plan you can visit.

NAR always brings back some of the same vendors you see year after year, but I still like to stop by and see them, and how their products have changed or improved. Then there’s all the new technology stuff I haven’t seen or heard of yet.  When I found a booth or vendor with a name I didn’t recognize, or if they that had something I hadn’t heard of, I’d ask them, “In a sentence, tell me who you are, what you do, and what does your company provide?”

So if you were unable to make it to NAR 2009 in San Diego this year, I hope you’ll take a moment to let me be your eyes, your ears, and your feet at NAR, and enjoy this condensed version of “A Day with Brad at the NAR EXPO” and see a few of the “highlights”that I thought were some of the “Best of the NAR Expo.”
