Stalk Us!

Only a few short weeks away

old sturbridge

I know that it may be hard to believe, but the 2015 Installation will be happening in just a few short weeks. This year’s event will be taking place at Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. Old Sturbridge Village is a “must-see” New England attraction which depicts an early 19th-century rural Village, featuring costumed historians, antique buildings, water-powered mills, and a working farm.

Want to make a weekend out of the event? Come a night early, December 7th, and enjoy Christmas by Candlelight! Click here for more information and to register.

Social Media Monday: SlideShare App #marealtorssmm

If you haven’t already heard, the LinkedIn-owned SlideShare finally released an iOS app this past month. According to this article from Tech Crunch, the app offers “a modern, clean layout to browse and search through the presentations hosted on SlideShare’s service.”

As we’ve explained before, SlideShare is the social platforms to, well, share slides and presentations. There’s practically a presentation for every genre, including a host of stuff on the real estate business. This new app is just one more reason for REALTORS to get on SlideShare in our opinion.

Read the rest of the TechCrunch article on the SlideShare app here here.

The iOS app is free here on iTunes.
