We made it through another week and another month. Tomorrow is Halloween, it’s a full moon, and we “Fall Back” to Daylight Savings Time. The memes say it might reset us and free us from the dumpster fire that is 2020, but I have my doubts.  In this week’s news you can use, The Dallas […]

The ONeil Edit – October 23, 2020

You all, my baby turns 12 today! This is absolutely crazy to wrap my head around having kids that are 12 and 14 since I can clearly remember being that age myself. But here we are.

The ONeil Edit – October 16, 2020

Good news, I survived last weekend’s birthday party. Bad news, I’m now the mother of a 14 year old. This week marked her return to in person school alongside her younger sister who returned last week. And oh my god I do not miss this part of pre-pandemic life. Mornings are like a cat 5 […]

Third quarter came and went with the blink of an eye. Through hurricanes, wild fires and floods, the home building industry took no hits in the third quarter. The same is true in digital marketing.

Before I […]

Way back in the early spring, when stay at home orders first went out, we saw a flurry of activity from home builders who wanted to advance the technology they were using to sell homes. From virtual appointment scheduling to fully being able to buy a home online without ever stepping foot in it. We […]

A tough intro to transition out of, but one that I felt was important to mention.  This week […]

Homebuilder XML Feeds FAQ. The What, How, and Why.

This topic goes by many names – data feed, listing feed, BDX feed, XML feed, and simply XML or feed, among others. No matter how you refer to it (I’ll be using “XML Feed” for this article), it’s one of the most confusing, frustrating, and despised topics in our industry. Unfortunately, I cannot make the […]
