Must-Read RE.Net Blog Posts for 2010

I LOVE reading real estate blogs.

And I especially love reading the posts written by the people who I believe are shaping the future direction of the real estate industry. I’ve learned so much from some of the brightest minds in the game.

How much? Several of the major components of our real estate franchise concept were taken verbatim from things I read in blog posts. That’s how much.

Top 10 of 2010

That being said, I’ve read literally hundreds if not thousands of real estate blog posts this year. And I thought it would be cool to come up with a “Top 10 of 2010 list.” So, I sat down with a legal pad and my trusty fountain pen, and I started writing down posts from memory.

Oops… Make that Top 15

The list at right is the actual list. I was amazed at how quickly I put it together. It took me *maybe* 10 minutes. I tried to eliminate a few, but I just couldn’t do it. So, I ended up with 15 instead of 10. Sorry it that’s too many, but I sincerely believe that every one of these posts is worth reading.

So, in no particular order, here are the 15 posts written during 2010 that had the most impact on me:

So, these were the “best of the best” from my purely subjective, unscientific perspective. And I am POSITIVE that I missed tens if not hundreds of other great posts that I simply didn’t read, so please don’t be offended if I omitted something that clearly should have been included.

That being said, I hope you enjoyed these awesome posts as much as I did!

PS – This past year, real estate lost one of its foremost and most influential blogging voices, Joe Ferrara. Here is Jay Thompson’s heartfelt memorium to Joe.

  • Branding, brokerage and raising the bar all similar themes shared by the authors.
    Interested to see what 2011 brings and what all these notable writers will tackle.
    An honorable list. Congrats to all for making it.

    Pss: Joe F. May he rest in peace.

      Agree that branding, brokerage and raising the bar are the “topics de jour” in real estate (as least where we live!).

      I cannot wait to see what all these great bloggers come up with in 2011 on these topics as well.

      Thanks for all the great content you, Brian and Joel are always putting out for us. We love 1000Watt!
