This is what makes Relify.com stand out from other Real Estate Sites!!!!

You maybe thinking that relify.com is just another real estate website…WE OFFER SO MUCH MORE.  The site is designed for people who work in all facets of real estate.  We designed a comprehensive real estate site.

Real Estate Posting section:

Auction Posting and Search:

  • We designed a place for real estate auction companies to post upcoming auctions and criteria that is specific to auctions.  We are the ONLY site where real estate Auctions ALWAYS comes up in a search.  If you search a zip code no matter what the price the auction is always displayed.

Agent Mortage Company and Home Services (Contractor and Resources) Profile:

  • The profile on Relify.com is designed to as a mini webpage.  We allow Bio, Photos, Logo, Videos of either a property or a personal profile video (mini commercial about yourself), email, and links to multiple websites.

Facebook

May 2, 2009

I have to say thank you to facebook, twitter and blogging.  Now when I can’t sleep instead of surfing the net or shopping online, I can chat with my “friends”.  I can write quick notes, IM and read up on people I haven’t seen in months.  This, of course being one of those nights.  I used to unwind with the tv or book and now it is the computer.  It seems to be the first thing I do in the morning (all related to relify) and then in the late evening when I am catching up with friends and family.  So thank you I am no longer alone in the middle of the night 🙂

First Video blog

April 30, 2009

Video blogging is one of the goals of my company, Relify.com. The idea of the video blog for Relify.com is to tell stories about what is going on in the real estate industry whether it is an agent or contractor or mortgage broker. We want to do mini interviews that would never be seen otherwise.
The website is designed with video capabilities so agents and anyone posting on the site can promote themselves as well as their product. We have developed a website which created a way for every listing to have its on mini commercial for your listings or company.
So today I am testing my first video blog and this is the start of exploring new ways to get out there. So I hope you like my first video blog giving you an idea of what Relify.com is all about. Stay tuned to more to come.

the amount of time I spend on the computer…

April 26, 2009

the amount of time I spend on the computer… (edit/delete)
I was talking to a friend the other day about how much time I am on the computer on “social networking”. It used to be checking my emails, but now I check personal and work emails, twitter, facebook, wordpress, activerain, and a few other sites. I love to write my thoughts and read how my friends and colleagues are doing. It is amazing how often I am on the computer. I used to think about how many hours a year I spent at red-lights or waiting in line to checkout at the store was wasting my time. Now of course I have my cell phone to make calls, text, etc… but really how much time is spent on the computer. I know the value of it, but why not just use one site? Why do I check all of these sites (like most of friends as well). How many hours per year am I toggling between social networking sites? How many hours per year are you?

The economy and our changing needs in real estate

April 25, 2009

The other day…

I was talking to some friends the other day about the news and what is going on in the world. Many people are moving out of assisted livings b/c they can’t afford it anymore and back in with their kids. I started to wonder…what this must be like for both. How sad to have to move out of your home and into your children’s homes whose own kids are probably off to college. This ‘sandwich’ generation who are ready to enjoy life with their spouse (or go out and enjoy it with friends) are now caring for their parents. The elders most likely enjoyed their independence and are not too happy about needing to be ‘cared for’. what does this mean for real estate. Well, how is the house set up…does the parent have adequate space for themselves (like an aupair suite). Are they needing to move, maybe to a rancher? Is this a new niche market? People that needed to downsize may need to keep the size but have it all on one floor. Emotionally and Physically a lot of changes need to be made. This economy continues to ripple it’s effects downward. Maybe the silver lining is that families will be closer and we will surround ourselves with those we love.

The Daily Record Article

April 21, 2009

It was so exciting to see the article in the daily record about relify.com. My husband and I have worked so hard trying to design a website that is user friendly, free and will draw traffic to it. We thought about what is important for agents, mortgage brokers, and contractors as well as auction companies, for sale by owners and the general public. We wanted to create a website that would consolodate all of a consumer’s needs for their home. We worked with designers, computer people and the general public. It was amazing to see the article in print yesterday, what a feeling of accomplishment. Now we are meeting with marketing people to get our site out to the public. I encourage anyone in the real estate field to post on it and anyone searching for a home to search our site. Thank you for all of your support and check out the article:

Real Estate Maryland

April 18, 2009

relifycom6Okay, so there are so many sites out there on how to find a house, mortgage broker, contractors and resources. My husband I started to look for our house a few years ago and checked out all of the websites, spoke to agents…did a lot of leg work driving around neighborhoods we were interested in and it got us thinking…there has to be an easier way. So, we thought of what our ideal website would look like if we could design what we wanted all under one roof. That is how we came up with http://www.relify.com It is a one stop shop. You can locate an agent, search property for sale by agents, owners, builders and auction companies as well as search the Multiple List in Maryland. You can search for a mortgage broker and even find a contractor for your home’s needs. In addition we added a feature called “myrelify”. myrelify not only tags your agent, broker and contractors, it also allows you to input all of your homes information (like paint colors, warranty information and appliances). And now it is built and on the web. I encourage anyone who is looking for anything home related to search our site and anyone that works in the real estate industry to post on our FREE site. We do not require anyone to log on to view any of the information. Feedback is welcome!

Thanks,

Real Estate Search Engine in Maryland

<a href=”http://relify.com&#8221; As a parent I am constantly trying to find new and fun things to do with my children that they will enjoy. As of this date we are members of the Maryland zoo and the Maryland science center, which I highly recommend. I have been taking my son to both since he was 2 months old and he loves it. In addition the Baltimore museam of Art and the Walters Art Gallery are great on rainy days. My son is 3 yrs. old and he asks to see the Thinker at the BMA…it is great. When the weather is nice the backyard at the BMA is wonderful b/c kids can run thru the statues. As a side note Gertrudes (the resturant there) offers cheaper meals one night of the week (just call to make sure that is still going on). The Walters is great, but sometimes parking is tuff). The Baltimore museam of Industry in Federal Hill is so much fun especially when they have activities. The Baltimore Child magazine offers great information on what to do with children you can check them out online at http://www.baltimoreschild.com. On Sunday mornings starting at 8am the Farmers Market is great it is under 83 off the Pleasent Street exit (it runs from May 3rd until December 20th). There are a ton of festivals that go on in the spring and summer. Johns Hopkins Spring Fair is April 24th thru the 26th, Pee Wee preakness in Federal Hill Park on May 12th at 11:30am and the Charles Village Festival and Parade June 6th thru the the 7th at Wyman Park Dell from 11am-6pm. There are so many things to choose from and I am constantly trying to find new things. I know the standards for me are Barnes and Noble story time, Ultimate Play Zone http://www.ultimateplayzone.com (which they love) and the mall (which I do as little as possible). I am happy to post more to do if anyone out there wants the information. http://www.citylivingbaltimore.com has a great calander on their site which I encourage anyone to check out as well. They also have a lot of information about what is going on in Baltimore. I would love to hear from anyone that has great ideas of where to take kids on rainy days or days of of school.
