What is your designation? GRI, ABR, e-Pro, E.I.E.I.O……

I came across this article on Inman News. It is a must read. The Real Estate Industry, as a whole, is a very proud group. Many times, needing space on the back of a business card to put information because the front of the card is to cluttered with all the classes, honors, and designations they’ve received! Go read this article and tell me if it paints the picture for you, like it did for me. Too Funny! Click Here To Read The Article On Inman News

If You Have A Minute And Want A Good Laugh……

I just got back from vacation and this year we decided that rather than go fly away somewhere, we would simply stay at home and spend family time at parks, fishing, riding our bikes, etc. Part of this reason is that every year we take a trip or two and I go crazy dealing with airlines! Some of it is simply the people, some of it is that after traveling extensively over the last 8 years, bringing my family with me through airports seems to interrupt my regular “flow”.

I was down at the lake fishing with my son the other day knowing that I only had 2 days left on my vacation. It was so nice to me thinking that normally, with about 2 days to go, I would start worrying about how the flights were going to go, how the kids would do, delays, luggage and all the other little nuances of flying. But not this time! All I was worried about was helping him cast his line……beautiful!

So I got home and later that night came across this video. It cracked me up! Brian Regan is this comedians name and here is a short clip about this very same thing! Apparently, I’m not the only one who doesn’t like to fly! LOL!

“What to the Slave is the Fourth of July”

I’m sitting at my desk right now getting ready to go to a Company BBQ. The thought of July 4th is currently focused on friends, family, the lake, the food and of course……the fireworks. I thought that I might give a speech or say something when all are gathered and then it dawned on me that July 4th speeches tend to be as gaudy as the showers of fireworks that end the day and as short-lived. I think that’s probably for the best. Most of those elaborate July 4th addresses deserve to be forgotten. True patriotism goes beyond mindless self-congratulation; it includes honestly and soberly facing up our national shortcomings as well as our successes.

That’s why one of the best 4th of July speeches in our history was given on July 5, in the year 1852. The speaker was the great African-American leader Frederick Douglass, and his topic was, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July”.

Douglass was an imposing figure, both physically and intellectually. Photographs of him show a man of iron determination, with a head like a lion and piercing dark eyes. A runaway slave, largely self-educated, he willed himself to become a master of the written and spoken word. He was a superb orator, and his topic was deliberately provocative. He was challenging Americans to live up to the principles they celebrated the day before.

Either all men, regardless of race, were created equal, and endowed by their creator with inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness or the Declaration of Independence was a hollow mockery, and America itself was a fraud.

Said Douglass:

“The existence of slavery in this country brands your republicanism as a sham, your humanity as a base pretense, and your Christianity as a lie. It destroys your moral power abroad; it corrupts your politicians at home. It saps the foundation of religion; it makes your name a hissing, and a by word to a mocking earth. It is the antagonistic force in your government, the only thing that seriously disturbs and endangers your Union. It fetters your progress; it is the enemy of improvement, the deadly foe of education; it fosters pride; it breeds insolence; it promotes vice; it shelters crime; it is a curse to the earth that supports it; and yet, you cling to it, as if it were the sheet anchor of all your hopes. Oh! Be warned! Be warned! a horrible reptile is coiled up in your nation’s bosom; the venomous creature is nursing at the tender breast of your youthful republic; for the love of God, tear away, and fling from you the hideous monster, and let the weight of twenty millions crush and destroy it forever!”

Ultimately, Douglass’ faith in America was vindicated; the serpent of slavery was crushed. But even today, we still cannot claim that we are fully living up to the grand promises embodied in the Declaration of Independence. So, on 4th of July, let us celebrate those promises, but let us spend the remaining days of the year working to ensure that those promises are kept.

I wish you all a very safe and fun filled Independence Day.

May God Bless America

Our New Website Is Officially Here!

I am so excited to launch this new site. We have been working on a complete redesign of our site and blog and really, a complete rebranding of Just Snooping. This new site is designed to be state-of-the-art while still being very user friendly. As you can see, video is playing a big part in today’s society and Just Snooping has adapted accordingly. We understand the need to stay on the cutting edge of technology and have created this site to incorporate all of the expectations of our clients.

This new site has some very unique points to it:

Starting with the home page; we’ve designed this page to be simple and to feed you the information you want. A nice video, a product slideshow, a direct link to our YouTube videos and channel, RSS feeds, and the most recent articles from our blog are all located right here.

On the top of the page there is a simple navigation bar that you can scroll over to view our Products, read about Our Story, photographers and videographers can join Just Snooping’s Alliance Program, a Contact Us page, our Blog and of course, you can search all of the listings in the world that have a Just Snooping.com Virtual Tour or Video.

The Product pages are designed to be kept simple as well. A quick video, features of that specific product and a way to contact us for more information and to begin using Just Snooping’s products and services.

Skipping over to our Blog, this is a direct link to our Blog Site. This new blog site is very user friendly and gives you the ability to keep in touch with our company as well as your peers around the country. This will be kept up regularly and we expect to have great feedback and comments consistently on our posts. The idea of our blog is that it will be fresh, relevant, and give you an opportunity to voice your opinions on anything.

Also on this blog site is a section labeled “Recommended Products”. This area is going to be reserved for products that we have heard are working well for other customers of ours. Just Snooping has affiliations with some of the world’s leading brands and because of that, we can pass along some exclusive offers over to you through our site. Some advertisements will be placed throughout our website that may be of interest to you, but specifically on this “Recommended Products” page, we will be making sure the product offerings are approved from our customers specifically.

Lastly on the blog is a section called “Marty’s Blog”. This is your opportunity to connect with our CEO. Marty will be blogging on topics relating to the Real Estate industry and specifically about different things he’s hearing as he travels the country.

That’s it! Have fun on the new site, and please keep coming back periodically to see what’s new. Feedback is wonderful so please send us a message or comment and tell us what you think.

Sincerely,

Marty L. Moses Jr.

Is the NAR Relevant?

The National Association of REALTORS® Conference & Expo is considered by many to be the largest and most important real estate conference of the year. For others, it sometimes becomes hard to justify spending the time and money that is needed to attend such conferences. Marty L. Moses Jr., Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Just Snooping.com, Inc. sits down to speak about his past experience with the NAR and the overall feelings surrounding Just Snooping.com attending.
