Feedback on FRED - Fun Realtor Education Day

Just a quick post to see if anybody has feedback on FRED today. Did you learn anything new? I always say if I can pick up just one new fact from a seminar, it was time worth spending. Rick DeLuca gave me lots of good ideas.

Here is a sampling of the Web sites Mr. DeLuca suggested:

systainsoft.com for translations

DQNews.com for stats

Readnotify.com for e-mail receipts

Jott.com for messages

realestateideaclub.com for new ideas

The presentation about Lyon and Realtor.com was also intriguing.

I'm excited about setting up my control panel for Realtor.com at resource.realtor.com, and I can't wait to try out the listing widget at labs.move.com. Come on November 1.

What did everybody else think of FRED? What did you learn? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
