Margaret Rome Mentioned in Realtor® Magazine...The Answer Is Blogging!

Margaret Rome Mentioned in Realtor® Magazine...The Answer Is Blogging!

A Facebook message from one of my favorite people..Carra Riley! 


"Margaret, Tom was just reading the new Realtor Magazine and read a wonderful Open House tip from you on page 18! There you go Rocking the World! Great to be back reading about the "Rome Way!"

 Since I did not have a copy.. Google found this quote from the magazine.

''Pick a theme. Margaret Rome, broker-owner of HomeRome Realty in Baltimore, says you have to make the event fun. She’s hosted a popcorn-and-champagne soiree, a block party with a huge BBQ pit, and an evening cocktail party at the homes of her listings. The events garnered attention and directly led to the sale of the home.''


Last  year around this time, we had this event...Realtor Magazine's Open House Master Series and the First ActiveRain Open House

All of these things happened because of blogging. I did an unusual BarBQue open house on a Thursday evening and, of course, blogged it. The Washington Post picked up the story..Active Rain, The Washington Post, and My Name in Print 

                                           Washinton Post

That was quite exciting and there was a story on the front page of the REAL ESTATE section including a mention of Active Rain! Turns out I didn't need to run around and buy copies of the Washington Postthe article is  online with this headline.. "How do you make an open house stand out? Sometimes agents go to extremes, but the glitz doesn't always help."

Sometime later I got a call from REALTOR® Magazine asking if I would be their Open House Master.  Funny thing ...I don't  even do open houses...well not traditional 1-3 Sunday Open Houses. Even tell my clients up  open houses.

So how does someone who is known NOT to do Opens wind up as the Master Open House Realtor® ?

The answer is Blogging!
