I heard Stefan Swanepoel speak at a RE/MAX Michigan Conference in February 2006. Stefan studies all the new real estate trends thoughout our industry. I was so impressed by his absolute unbiased research on every franchise and company and his dedication to our industry in general. Stefan recently started blogging on Activerain and tweeting on Twitter.
It has been fun to get to follow him on a consistent basis. Recently he posted on The Top 10 Events Impacting Real Estate in 2008.
I was going to copy the whole post here with his permission but just go here and read it is well worth it and the comments from Realtors across the nation of fun to read.
Stefan is also co-founder of the Real Estate Wiki, the largest online real estate encyclopedia in the industry.
