I've been selling real estate in Eastern Connecticut for over 40 years. I've been blessed with a great business and have won a whole bunch of awards. I owned RE/MAX Realty Group in Gales Ferry for 23 years and sold the business a few years back but stayed with RE/MAX. So in addition to my Ledyard real estate business, I now have more time to speak and train my peers about blogging, social networking, and other real estate solutions.
I also stay busy with my local Board of Realtors® and serve on several committees. For 10 years, I chaired the Board’s Annual Golf Tournament to benefit Habitat for Humanity.
I am active in my community and recently served as a Lead Volunteer Coordinator for Extreme Makeover - Home Edition, that was held in Voluntown Connecticut. Proving that politics and real estate can mix, I am an elected official in my town and serve as chairman of the Ledyard Town Council. I was previously Chairman of the Ledyard Board of Education. I am a very active volunteer at the Ledyard Food Pantry.
I have been blogging since February 2005. My blog "Simply Ledyard" tackles real estate, land use issues and even local politics, mostly with a sense of humor.
I have spoken on Blogging and Social Networking at the RE/MAX International Convention, Inman Connect and at numerous conferences and meetings around the country.
P.S. I love taking photos even though I mostly just point and shoot. You'll find more of my photos on my Simply Ledyard Blog.
