Profiling one of my dearest clients and creative minds: Karen Turner

This month I decided to do a little something different. It started off when a wonderful friend, client, and writer of mine, Karen Turner came to meet me over the beginning of the Fall season. I needed some social media help and Karen was the perfect person to sit down with and show me how to sound and be professional in the big world of Linkedin and Twitter. I felt I had Facebook down pat, but the rest was a blur, and thanks to Karen’s help I now have a better handle of what I need to do to stand out. Yes folks, I am still a work in progress in these departments.
In any event, Karen has been wonderful in sending me great real estate literature that I felt I had to share with you today. Here are a few cool articles. Thanks Karen!

Feel free to learn more about Karen,
