I was out gathering video of a new listing the other day - a small lot on West Beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  I was approached by someone who had left work to come speak with me.  I first noticed him from about 70 yards away.  He was walking in my direction and by 30 yards, he was definitely coming to talk with me.  After reaching me, the first thing said was - "the latest invasion of our privacy, right there!".  This hasn't been uncommon since I bought a drone and I've been approached with animosity before.

While I'm often inclined to say as little as possible, especially when the initial contact offers a tone of contempt and aggravation, this time I decided to try and share some insight.  I simply replied to the man, "Let me show you something".  I

Be careful of FREE tools

This is intended for webmasters and real estate website owners

Webmaster logo for RealtorsWhen Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia and other large real estate portals advertise "free" tools, there's a cost - a very big one.  While there may not be a place to enter your credit card number or a request for your billing address, these sites didn't reach the top of Google's search results by accident.  Although they're good sites, full of information and easy-to-use software with huge marketing budgets, their most effective marketing tactic isn't something they discuss.  In fact, unless you've read the fine print within their terms and conditions, you've probably never heard of how they take advantage of unsuspecting professionals.

Over the next few months, thousands of feathery visitors will be arriving on the beaches of Fort Morgan and surrounding Gulf Coast. The spring migration peaks in April as over 300 species of birds travel from Central and South America to their breeding grounds in North America and Canada.  A majority of the birds use the Mississippi Flyway, one of the four North American migratory routes, to make their way northward along the Mississippi River.  The Fort Morgan peninsula, Dauphin Island, and nearby barrier islands serve as important stopovers for them to rest and refuel from their long, treacherous journey over the Gulf of Mexico.

This biannual phenomenon is studied by scientists and research groups all over the nation through the practice of bird

As temperatures start to warm up here on the Gulf Coast, we can't help but notice the increase in southbound traffic on Hwy 59 and the Foley Beach Express in route to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.  Although the endless miles of sugar-white beaches draw in the majority of visitors, a large number of vacationers travel down to the area with their boats in tow to fish or sightsee.  The Alabama coast is covered in a variety of water bodies and with numerous places to launch from it's easy to explore the local waterways and take in the beautiful scenic views.  Orange Beach is famously known as a boater's haven encompassing 20 miles of back bays, bayous, and inlets meandering throughout the city all flowing out to the Gulf of Mexico.
