T- Thoughts
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” ~ Saint Augustine
This week, Tate “I love it when you call me big papa” Litchfield, Rossi Spong our Chief Problem Solver, her husband Garrett, Keshon Henry our beloved Jamaican VA, and I have been hanging out in Negril Jamaica!
We wanted to celebrate Keshon’s birthday in style and let her know how much we care and appreciate her for all the value she creates for our companies.
I haven’t traveled internationally in years and even though it’s quite a process now with COVID I have to say it’s been an amazing experience.
Here are some quick thoughts about our trip.
Seeing a yellow stingray, pufferfish, beautiful coral reefs in the clear Caribbean waters while snorkeling and diving have been phenomenal. Tate and I went on four incredible dives to get certified. I forgot how enjoyable and scary it is to be a new student and learn something completely novel.
Learning more about each person on our trip has been an absolute joy. If you get a chance to ask Rossi about her favorite music… Well, let’s just say I guarantee it won’t disappoint. Don’t play any games with her if you’re expecting to win. Also, Garrett is one of the top five smartest, nicest, and most interesting people on the planet. My man-crush has only broadened since spending more time with him. Keshon has been teaching us Jamaican curse words, some patois, and making us feel like locals! If you ever get a chance to travel with Tate take the opportunity! He’s more entertaining in person than he is virtually and has amazing stories.
I forgot how lucky I am to live in the United States with all of its modern conveniences. Being on a beautiful island is an amazing experience, but the daily gratitude to live in the United States is always on my mind. I’m always thinking about how I had a 2 in 7 chance to be born in India or China. Yet, by some luck, here I am enjoying a poor country and its beauty always knowing that I’ll be back in the lap of total comfort and luxury soon by no effort of mine except luck.
If you get a chance to eat at Mama’s Lobster Shack on the beach in Negril Jamaica don’t ask twice! Just make the reservation.
Those are my thoughts “maan”… I’m off to go to the swim-up pool and order a bottled “Wata”. That’s right, it’s “Wata Maan!” Now go listen to some Bob Marley for us!
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.” ~ Mark Twain

In This Week's Round Table...
On this week’s roundtable episode, the Land Geeks discuss the topic “how to get beautiful images for your listings and do you really need them?”
Episode Notes
Joining Mark this week are:
  • Mike Zaino
  • Scott Bossman
  • Erik Peterson
  • Teria Harris
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
Listen in as they go around the table and share how they gather pictures and videos for their listings. They also discuss whether or not pictures are an all-time necessity to market a property and on what occasions can an aerial view or GIS image of the property be used for marketing.
Teria: My tip is for pictures, a website that has a really good quality called, they’re free. You can download them. You can find that they may represent your property as long as you are clear in the property details. Another thing that we’ve done, we had someone go out to the property and take a video of it, and then create pictures from the video. We just run the video and take a screenshot. So we do hire someone to go out and take pictures and videos.
