Real Estate Articles Worth Reading
One of the best things about enjoying various social media sites is the opportunity to see some exceptional real estate content. Years ago while working as one of the top RE/MAX real estate agents in Westborough MA I stumbled upon a site known as Active Rain. This was where I got my feet wet as a real estate blogger. It was an enjoyable place where thousands of Realtors could collaborate and share tips with one another on a daily basis.
After a while I realized having my own self hosted real estate blog was the best way to go rather than posting on someones platform that I didn't own. I decided to stop posting regularly at Active Rain and created my own site called Maximum Real Estate Exposure. From there things took off and I now have on of the most recognized real estate blogs in the country.
My passion for blogging and social media has put me in a position where I come across some great real estate articles that are worth showcasing. For this reason, I like putting together summaries like these that give you a peak at content you may have missed. Below have a look at 6 exceptional articles worth reading.

Work With A Real Estate Marketing Expert
One of the things I have found fasinating about being involved in the real estate industry is the lack of time and effort people take to select a real estate agent. One would think when you are selling your largest asset it would be of the utmost importance. Clearly lots of people think all real estate agents do the same thing to market homes. This is absolutely wrong! In Joe Manausa's latest article he explains why it is so important to have a real estate marketing expert in your corner. I could not agree with Joe more. There is nothing more important in sales than marketing. Take a look as see some of Joe's excellent advice.
