Iâ€™m sure many of you have heard of ActiveRain and LinkedIn and the other dozens of online communities â€“ some geared at networking, some geared at real estate, and some geared at both.
Until now though, there hasnâ€™t been a localized version of an online real estate community â€“ but times are a changing!!!
This brilliant idea comes from the folks that collaborate on sfnewsletter (the best free newsletter about SF real estate and the popular blog www.thefrontsteps.com â€“ but this newest idea is one I think can benefit the entire San Francisco real estate community in general – and YES – this includes buyers, sellers and Realtors alike!
Itâ€™s www.thefrontsteps.org and itâ€™s an online community where brokers and agents and principals (that’s buyers and sellers in regular speak) can come together to get involved in some meaningful conversations about SF real estate. Itâ€™s brand new, so you wonâ€™t see much activity there yet â€“ but itâ€™ll be up to members to get the dialogue rolling.
I just started a group for neighbors in the Outer Sunset and Parkside. There’s a group for Noe Valley Neighbors. In fact, there’s EVEN a group for high-rise-condo-dwelling singles that are looking for love in high places! (So what if there’s just one lonely member as of this posting – it only takes two to tango right? Just one more and maybe we have a love connection?)
Anyway – to make a long story short, if you give a damn about San Francisco real estate and are interested in all things cutting edge, get on thefrontsteps bandwagon. You never know what you’ll find there – and frankly, neither does anyone else just yet!
