San Antonio's Rockstar Turned Realtor®: The Hip Roof - For Real Estate Agents by Real Estate Agents

The Hip Roof - For Real Estate Agents by Real Estate Agents

The Hip Roof - By Agents for AgentsAll these agents under one Hip Roof.

The Hip Roof is here.  A website for real estate agents, built and maintained by real estate agents.  No vendors, no advertisers, no agendas.  A place to share your real estate knowledge, learn something new, discuss the latest trends, and talk shop.  A place that you can call home.  A place that has only just begun to get started.

What can you expect from The Hip Roof?  Webinars, training, advice, opinions, knowledge, and networking - all from real estate agents who want to share their experiences and learn from each other.

The Hip Roof is about to open its doors.

Tonight at 10:30PM (I believe it's Eastern time), The Hip Roof will close its doors on their soft launch and begin its life as a full-fledged membership site (don't quote me on the time, I don't run the show).  Tomorrow the price goes up, but until then you can get in under the soft launch price.  You can even get a sneak peak for the rest of the day.

Webinars Every Monday at 1PM

Tomorrow is the first in the series of Expert Series Interviews and features a name ActiveRain members should be familiar with by now - Ben Kinney.  Every week a new webinar will be recorded (I've been invited to do one next month!) and offered to members.  Have someone or something you'd like to see covered - just ask The Hip Roof, at the end of the day, it's all about the real estate community.

Want to blog for your industry?

These won't be blogs about local events and places like here on ActiveRain - these will be focused solely on our industry and the thoughts behind it.  You'll even get to read my latest, The Devil's Avocado.  I've been dreaming up this blog for sometime now and have already started plotting and scheming on future topics.  My latest entry, "Discarding the Code of Ethics" is sure to ruffle a few feathers.

Have a question you need answered now?

The Hip Roof Forum is the life-blood of the site.  A place where agents can gather and help each other out, whether it's about social media, coaching, or legal issues (and much more).  There are some great things being shared in there and there's much more to come (I've seen some sneak previews of ideas and it's pretty incredible what the site is capable of).

It's time to pickup your keys and enter The Hip Roof.

Take a peek at what's going on and sign up, The Hip Roof is going to be one amazing adventure for all of us.

Matt - This is the first I have heard of The Hip Roof but a quick glance shows there are some great folks involved.  Maya, with all of her experience, has come up with a super idea.  Looks like it will be another great resource of information.

Chris and Stephanie - It was quietly soft launched to begin building up the forums and getting things tested.  There's a lot of great people involved from the design and maintenance to the meat of the forums.  I know it's going to grow exponentially over the next few months and I'm honored to be a part of it.

And yes, Maya is one wicked genius.

Matt, sounds like a good thing, but I don't know about adding another monthly cost. Wish there was a way to know how it'll turn out before having to look back later.

Eric - You can take the sneak peek now at least.  It ends tonight, but it will at least give you an idea of what to expect.

Matt - you always have a handle on the coolest, newest stuff.

Alfonse - Only because I can't help but search it out (although now, it seems to find me).  I just love me some good geekery.

Awesome idea, Matt!  I found this over on FB where I went to raz you for waving the 'trademarked' Zebra colors!!  (If, by chance, the plaintiff has apologized, I'm sorry!)

I'm headed over there to check out the Hip Roof--I love it!

Debe - This is probably one of the few places I haven't switched my avatar.  Too many places to remember to change!  Enjoy The Hip Roof and feel free to shoot me a message on there.

Matt< Sounds like there is a lot of stuff on this site. I'll be checking it out, but there sure seem to be a lot of real estate sites all over right now. How do you differentiate yourself?

Deborah - There are always lots of real estate sites sprouting up.  I could quite real estate and just read full time if someone would pay me!  I like The Hip Roof for two main reasons: 1) It was started by Maya, who is a personal friend as well as someone I look to for advice in the industry and 2) I think the open forum and "for agents by agents" side is a good thing.  Every website is a business and has to make money to survive.  Unfortunately, this often means advertisers and agendas.  Not to say that it's wrong, but sometimes it clouds the true purpose of the website.  I think The Hip Roof has a more one-on-one feel when you're discussing topics.  There's no reason to post in there (ie, SEO purposes) except to gain more knowledge - so it cuts the clutter a bit.

Paige - Be sure and say hello, I'll try and remember to search the member list and send you a message!

Kay - Thanks.  Much appreciated.  It's growing fast, so I'm looking forward to the next few weeks.

Sussie - I can think of a few things I learned in life that hurt me.  Building a ramp - definitely hurt me.  Haha.  Be sure to say hi when you make your way over there.

Leslie - Now get some posts in there and I'll see you around!  I'll make sure they know you're "hip" enough to stick around.

Doug - Although I might laugh at your choice in pants, I think you'll be safe.
