Bill, I'm one of just a few people worldwide chosen by Linkedin to test their new #LinkedinLive platform. Although I'm a Realtor, I was the relocation client a dozen times so very much take the side of the consumer and understand firsthand their frustration. So hope to use this opportunity to highlight thought leaders in the industry. Would you or anyone hear be interested in creating a panel to discuss changes and challenges in the industry I could moderate on Linkedin?

Thanks for your offer and glad to collaborate. From my perspective the 2+ week window between Pi Day & April Fool’s Day is an annual call for real estate consumer education. Developed 20 content areas with lists of potential topics during 1Q2016 to seed the OPEN working groups here on #RE2020.

Focusing today on using Pi Day to talk about the commission pie in real estate and how DIY / DSIY — Do SOME of It Yourself — homebuyers and sellers can save their slice.
