Join the Conversation
Tomorrow at 2pm EST, the first ever #CRECHAT (commercial real estate chat) will be taking place – we’re joining the conversation and we hope you will too.
Jason Sandquist, a practitioner from Minneapolis, created www.crechat.co to host topic-focused commercial real estate conversations, happening on Twitter. From his blog post earlier this week he says:
“Last week we made an announcement for a commercial real estate chat via Twitter called #CRECHAT. In the short amount of time since then, we’ve built quite a bit of traction in a short amount of time including many commercial brokers and brands that are very relevant within the industry. So much so for the traction, I threw this site together so everyone can follow along easily. You can use any web browser (although I caution against Internet Explorer, only because its Internet Explorer), on your mobile phone and its even iPad/tablet friendly!
The first #crechat is going to take place on Friday at 2pm EST. The topic is industry sentiment. Easy enough, as everyone has their own opinion on the current market place and trends. Everyday you hear the stories on how the market is doing, good and bad. Most of the stories are coming from media outlets with fragmented numbers. Now is your chance to show your market expertise as we all know that each one is different.”
We wanted to do something for the participants, and have a little fun in the process. So, for this first chat tomorrow – we are giving away three awesome books on commercial real estate-related professional development, all written by REALTORS(R) Signature Series Speakers. Cindy Chandler’s “The Insider’s Guide to Commercial Real Estate“, Sam Foster’s “Alpha Male, a Tale of the Battle of Commerce, and Bob Potter’s “Selling Real Estate Services, Third Level Secrets of Top Producers“.
How do you win? We’ll keep track of everyone who tweets during the conversation with the hashtag #CRECHAT and randomly pick three names.
We’ll post the names of the three winners here in a video blog tomorrow afternoon.
Spread the word and join the conversation!
