Statesville NC Exit Agents go to Charlotte for Real Estate Web Training.

On February 12th, 4 Statesville NC agents from Exit Home Team Realty headed to Charlotte for the second class given by Real Estate Web TrainerKey Yessaad. What a fun and enlightening class!  If you have never heard of Key or experienced his style of teaching, you are in for a treat!  He is a master at what he does and within a few short hours, you have a wealth of knowledge that will benefit your business for life!  If you are looking for Googlejuice, Key can help you find it.
With social media websites, blogging and internet positioning becoming a main component of a Real Estate Agents marketing plan , it is critical that we create a strategy that will benefit ourselves, our sellers and our buyers.   As a real estate expert in the Statesville NC area, it is my job to get that information in the hands of the people who are looking for it. What I learned is that my website needs to do more than just offer local information and home search options.  It needs to be found by the people searching out that information and blogging is the tool that will accomplish that.  My goal for 2009 is to make the Statesville Real Estate Guide the leading source of information for people relocating to Statesville, those thinking of listing their homes for sale and those searching for Statesville NC Homes for Sale.
For a more detailed description of the classes we attended, follow the links below:

Girl Power! Iredell County Women are ready to build.

Habitat for Humanity of Iredell County
Habitat for Humanity of Iredell County

Iredell County is going pink!  This month over 300 women from Statesville and surrounding areas will come together with Iredell County Habitat for Humanity and begin a home for area resident Lillian Dye.  It was my honor to be a board member for the past three years and board president last year of the board of Iredell County Habitat. The affiliate worked hard to purchase nearly 10 acres of land for the first multi-home subdivision for this affiliate.  The newly developed Fourth Creek Village is ready for the first homes to be built on the 15 available lots.  Three homes will be started this month, one of which will be Women Build Home. The Leadership Statesville Class of 2009 is scheduled to contribute a community park area for the residents and one of the local Eagle Scouts will be developing a main entrance structure with a sign. 

  Over the past several months, the Women Build Committee has been working hard to raise nearly $60,000 for construction, recruit volunteers and raise community awareness for such a worthy cause.  Women volunteers have participated in the annual Christmas Parade in Downtown Statesville, sponsored a VIP breakfast to ask area businesses for funding, held a bowling tournament and other fundraising activities to help reach their goal. The local Lowes Home Improvement Center in Troutman NC offered instructional classes for framing, sheetrock and other building areas.  Earlier this month the community came together to kick off the event with a ground breaking ceremony and celebrate the accomplishments of the entire group of volunteers.  Excitement is building for the opening day and for the first nail to hit the frame!  Men…… are more than welcome to come on out and join in the fun.  Your input will be invaluable and the girls will certainly need someone to serve coffee and water!  During construction, visit the Women Build Blog and follow progress.  I will be sure to post updates and will write about the home dedication scheduled for Mother’s Day.   Come out and join us on Partnership Way and meet Lillian Dye who will be there along with all the volunteers- realizing her dream to become a homeowner. 

 If you are looking for a way to lift your spirits, I challenge you to get involved with your local Habitat Affiliate and help put a very deserving family in a brand new home.  After all………It is what we do every day!
