The Beach Club Resort sits on 86 acres in Gulf Shores, AL on the Fort Morgan peninsula.  The Fort Morgan peninsula is a 22-mile stretch of land that juts out at the bottom of Alabama with Mobile Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.  Oyster Bay, Little Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway all culminate in the southern part of Gulf Shores to create much of the waterfront real estate in the area.  From the upper floors at the Beach Club, Mobile Bay and the other bodies of water can all be seen meandering through the city.

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.

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.
