Real Estate Myths  

Even if you’ve never bought or sold a home before, we’re willing to bet that you’ve heard of some of these popular Real Estate myths.

Are you giving consumers the online experience they want?

Sept 2015 | By Cary Porter


People often ask me, “What’s your business strategy?” In a nutshell: If you build it, they will come. By “they,” I mean everyone—sellers, buyers, brokers, and agents. And by “it,” I mean an online experience that gives consumers exactly what they’re looking for.


Let me back up a bit. I’m the broker/ co-owner of The Cascade Team Real Estate. We’ve been fortunate to experience growth through one of the worst real estate markets in U.S. history, and on to now where most markets are in full rebound with shortages of inventory. We went from $20 million in sales in 2006 to over $900 million in 2015, and today we have nearly 300 brokers and salespeople…
