The ONeil Edit – February 26, 2021

This week flew by in a whirlwind. I think it’s because in this area, the weather finally relented and provided some warmer days. Our snow is all but gone, the umteen million small children that live on my court (whom I love) have been out every afternoon soaking in the sunshine and giving their parents […]

Homefiniti & Beyond Recap S2E4 – Data Privacy

There is a lot to cover when it comes to data privacy. The Facebook/Apple battle has gotten a lot of press recently, but what’s happening isn’t exactly new. It all started when we found out about all the data Cambridge Analytica took from Facebook. Turns out, you leave quite the trail of data and personally […]

The ONeil Edit – February 19, 2021

For the last two days we’ve had some form of precipitation coming out of the sky, enough to keep my kids home and for my husband’s office to close yesterday but not so much that it’s any more than a nuisance. The same can’t be said for much of the South. We never lost power, […]

The ONeil Edit – February 12, 2021

This week flew by faster than normal. I am feeling a little less gloom and doom and a little more optimistic about the next several weeks and months ahead. I’ve mentioned this before, but I started the habit several years ago of writing down things for which I am thankful each Sunday. It’s been extremely […]

IBSx 2021 Can’t Miss Sessions (Virtual Edition)

It’s always a challenge to narrow down the offering of sales and marketing education sessions to a list we deem as “can’t miss,” but we had a new twist to this annual endeavor with this year’s migration to an all virtual Builders’ Show. Good thing 2020 taught us how to pivot. Here’s ONeil Interactive‘s curation […]

The ONeil Edit – January 29, 2021

I’m not sure about the temperatures where you are, but here in Baltimore, it’s cold, really cold. On the bright side, I notice that the sun is coming up a little earlier and it’s setting a little later. Typically I hate January, and if you’d asked me each day this month if that was true […]

The ONeil Edit – January 22, 2021

And just like that it’s Friday once more. I spent the better part of my work week going down a rabbit hole of data for two reasons. First and foremost, today’s edition of Homefiniti & Beyond is all about website and digital marketing benchmarks from the 4th Quarter of 2020 as well as 2020 overall. […]

The ONeil Edit – January 15, 2021

We made it through another week of 2021. It was a busy one as five ONeil team members filmed their presentations for IBSx. Dennis ONeil, Megan English, Jenna Schwartz, Stacey Titemore and I will all be presenting this year. We’re sad not to be able to attend and present in person, but the people behind […]

The ONeil Edit – January 8, 2021

Welcome to 2021, feels like the dumpster fire ornament from 2020 might still be applicable to 2021. But not over here in my housing/digital marketing bubble. I like it over here. It’s full of record breaking numbers, growth, optimism and endless opportunities. It’s also conspicuously absent of any major attention grabbing headlines. This week brings […]

For our final Homefiniti and Beyond of 2020 we took a look at our namesake product, Homefiniti. Peter van der Does and Dennis ONeil  joined me to review what changes we made to Homefiniti in 2020 and what plans we have in store for it in 2021. 2020 certainly brought us some curveballs that sped […]

The ONeil Edit – December 18, 2020

Woop Woop! 2020 is coming to a close. I am so very ready for a vaccine and a return to normalcy that I hope 2021 will provide. However, as I’ve said before, I’m so thankful for the industry in which I work and for the way in which it has continued to thrive. Both the […]

The ONeil Edit – December 11, 2020

Unclear how this happened so quickly, but we are now standing mere weeks away from the conclusion of 2020 and 2021 is looking much brighter thankyouverymuch. Vaccines are coming and the housing market continues to shine. I can’t even begin to tell you how thankful I am to work in this industry. Not just for […]

The ONeil Edit – December 4, 2020

I’m back, and full of interesting news for the week. Thanksgiving wasn’t typical but it was nice nonetheless. There were copious amounts of food and drink consumed and a great deal of time spent lounging in my house coat enjoying snuggles with my kids. A nice refuel to help set up for a productive week, […]
