AG Adds *FOUR* New Contributors Today!

(yes, it’s in alphabetical order)

Kris Berg of San Diego Home Blog fame joins Agent Genius today (and there’s a 99.9% chance you already know of her)! She is the Real Estate Blogging Community sweetheart and a highly respected veteran Real Estate Blogger. Kris is one of Inman News’ featured columnists and has long set the golden standard for humor, quality writing, professionalism and grace.

Jamie Geiger in Phoenix/Gilbert, Arizona brings a fresh perspective to AG. Her local blog is extremely well written and her analysis of statistics is always easy to understand. Jamie spent 17 years as a programmer for Motorola and has a degree in Biomedical Engineering from ASU (wow, let’s just say she’s no dummy).

Rocky Van Brimmer from Delaware, Ohio is extremely well versed in the use of social media (surely you know him from Twitter) and is a natural networker. His creativity is unique and his reach is far. We anticipate Rocky will teach us about new technologies, social media networking and how he translates those into offline relationships with consumers.

Ginger Wilcox in Marin County, CA has already cut her AG teeth with her first article which has created quite a bit of buzz! Ginger specializes in the luxury home market in her area even teaches others how to market all types of properties. She intimately understands the importance of 1.0 AND 2.0 marketing and how to marry the two.

Please welcome each new contributor in the comments- we’re extremely excited about this news and ask everyone to cheer, scream, and holler about it!

Lani is the COO and News Director at The American Genius, has co-authored a book, co-founded BASHH, Austin Digital Jobs, Remote Digital Jobs, and is a seasoned business writer and editorialist with a penchant for the irreverent.

  19. Ken in Elgin

    July 21, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    Nice additions to the team. Soon you are going to need to find another way to display your contributors, the sidebar is already a little long 😉 .

  20. Benn Rosales

    July 21, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    haha Ken, I’d rather be outgrowing things than downsizing 😉

  21. Teri Lussier

    July 21, 2008 at 8:50 pm

    Ok, everyone else said all the nice things I wanted to say to allow me to say DITTO
    Now you guys know there’s a need for more contributors more articulate than me 😉

    @Benn Congratulations on having a big long sidebar- I bet all the other blogs are jealous!

  25. Dale Chumbley

    July 21, 2008 at 11:03 pm

    I have to ask? Am I the only one who thinks that is Donny Osmond doing the punching in the photo above? Seriously, check it out!

    Congrats to all the new additions! Everyday I love AG a little more. You just keep getting better. Excellent choices with the new geniuses!

  26. Benn Rosales

    July 21, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    That could very well be Donny… haha

  27. Eric Blackwell

    July 22, 2008 at 6:10 am


    Are you intimating that size MATTERS? 😉


  28. Jennifer in Louisville

    July 22, 2008 at 6:52 am

    @Eric – LOL

    Excellent, and welcome to AG guy & gals!

  29. The Harriman Team

    Congrats to all! Looking forward to reading new genius material!

  30. Kris Berg

    July 22, 2008 at 9:30 am

    Looking forward to it! I was stuck in Airport h&%* yesterday, so I missed the announcement. And, yes Dale, I am certain that is Donny Osmond, speaking as one who spent her formative years in a room wallpapered with his likeness plastered all over the walls compliments of Tiger Beat. If you do the math, that makes me 86 years old.

  31. Glenn fm Naples

    July 22, 2008 at 12:27 pm

    Welcome to Kris, Jamie, Rocky and Ginger.

  32. Shailesh Ghimire

  34. Jay Thompson

    July 25, 2008 at 2:15 pm

    I am WAY late to the welcoming party. Been a little busy at Inman this week.

    These are all stellar additions!|

    Thanks to some new additions this week, I’m proud to say I’ve met 23 of the writers on the side bar in person. Can anyone top that? (Sorry, it’s that damn competitive streak again…)
