Not Going to NAR? Follow Along on Your Phone

nar chicagoIn case you didn’t know, the 2007 National Association of REALTORS Expo and Convention is being held next week in Las Vegas. There is some pretty cool stuff going on (like the BloggerCon). So what do you do if you aren’t going to the conference, but you still want to learn about what is going on? Ben Martin has come up with a solution.

For those of you who don’t know Ben, he is an executive with the Virginia Association of REALTORS. Personally, I think he is the coolest REALTOR Association Executive in America. He has shown an unwavering dedication to improving the real estate industry through technology and new media.

For his latest stroke of genius (I’d call it AgentGenius, but Ben is a CAE, not a REALTOR), Ben has set up an NAR group through TxtMob. All you have to do is follow the instructions in Ben’s blog post to sign up, and you can then either send text messsages to the entire group, or just follow along with others.

I am sure there will be plenty of coverage of the NAR convention throughout the blogosphere, but this is one way you can stay updated instantaneously, thanks to Ben.
