According to 2009 National Association of Realtors’ Member Profile, over 1/3 of Realtors use social networking sites.

As a luxury real estate marketing professional, are you among this group? If so, how is it going? Are you making meaningful connections? Are you generating more business, yet? To be a successful networker all you need to do is follow the “chain of gain”.

Joanne Davis, a highly skilled real estate executive with over 24 years of experience in the industry in the Sacramento area, swears by Linked In. Since October, 2008, she has built a substantial network on Linked In (2750+ connections) that has really paid off. Joanne gets a minimum of 5-7 calls a week from new connections wanting to do business. You can connect with Joanne-see her profile.

Now, we were introduced to Joanne by our dear friend Donna Lee Laue, the CEO of Unique Global Estates (UGE), the world’s largest showcase of multimillion dollar estates. Joanne is the Luxury Ambassador for Sacramento on UGE.  View Donna's profile.
