Your Best Bet with Brian Block: Read all about it in REALTOR Magazine

REALTOR Magazine gets mailed out to over 1 million subscribers.  That's a fairly strong subscription base making it the publication for our industry.  Published by the National Association of REALTORS, the magazine calls itself "The Business tool for Real Estate Professionals" 

So, when you're extensively quoted in a publication of this magnitude, it's a pretty big deal, particularly when the writers have over 1 million REALTORS who they could come to as sources for their articles.  It's an even bigger deal when the article is a featured article mentioned on the cover.

Warning: Shameless horn-tooting here!

Brian Block in the News

One of the cover articles in the January/February 2012 issue of REALTOR Magazine (currently in the mailboxes of REALTORS around the country and online) is "Real Estate's Strongest Sectors for 2012" -- take a look at page 24 if you have the magazine.  Inside the magazine, the article is actually entitled "The Year Ahead: Real Estate's Best Bets in 2012." 

Here's a link to the online version of the article so you can read it in full: REALTOR Magazine article "The Year Ahead: Real Estate's Best Bets in 2012"

I'm excited to be quoted throughout the section on residential real estate trends for 2012.  It's always an honor to be relied upon by the media as a trusted source of real estate information.

Here's just one sample quote from the article:

"Affordable housing in inner-ring suburbs or center city areas may be real estate's sweet spot in 2012, Block says, because buyers today aren't looking just for bargains, they're looking for convenience and lifestyle amenities."

Hi Brian - I've received my I.R.E.S. Designation in Vancouver, BC, Canada today and I noticed that you have a IRES designation as well.  I'm presently building a larger network so that your listings can be featured in my city (for an international exposure), and mine can be featured by you.  Presently I have approximately 20 listings which might be of interest to you.  

Look forward to chatting some more with you with respect to co-listing each other's properties, if you are interested in speaking further?  Cheers, Jark.

Hi Brian, I'm sorry it has taken me a whole year to come here. We already knew you were an expert, but congratulations on the recognition from NAR.
