Happy Friday. Such a fun week. The weather is improving, the sun is shining and the clocks move ahead this weekend. It’s all a sure sign that Winter 2011/2012 is behind us. Even one last blast of snow won’t spoil my mood. So, to honour the changes that are taking place in the world around us, here are this week’s top five social media and technology tips for realtors. Woot woot.

I thought it was a pretty good article and worth the read. Thanks to @LizStrauss
