The Art of the CMA Real Estate Blog is Here
"The best time to start a real estate blog was 20 years ago.
The second-best time is today." - Ancient Wisdom
The problem with most real estate books — and real estate blogs — is that they’re no fun. Sure, our industry is rapidly changing due to the forces of digitization, consolidation and soaring consumer expectations.
New business models seem to emerge each day, robots are showing homes. Tech and social media giants are moving in for a piece of the $27 trillion US residential real estate market.
That means being a real estate pro isn’t getting any simpler or easier. But that doesn’t mean real estate pros can’t grow and thrive in the career they love, and achieve all the financial success and freedom that comes with it — while having some fun along the way.
The Art of the CMA Blog by Greg Robertson and Charles Warnock is a companion to The Art of the CMA book. It’s your playbook for how to grow and thrive in today’s market and into an uncertain future.
Like the book, this blog is for real estate professionals who are interested in real estate marketing and tech, as well as tips, hacks and strategies to create long-term success. We'll share news, events and tech trends related to the dynamic world of residential real estate.
