Join a neighborhood group, but for the right reasons

Realtor Notebook

The idea that a real estate agent should start a neighborhood group or website in their community has been popular since the late 1990s. When I first started selling real estate, there were neighborhood websites that agents could buy and then sponsor a neighborhood.

The neighborhood websites depended on agents and neighbors contributing fresh content. Local businesses could advertise on them, and the local real estate agents would supposedly prosper as the neighborhood expert.
