This is a bittersweet post to write.
It was almost 10 years ago that I started this little blog on a small corner of the Interwebs. Ten years is close to an eon in “blog time.” Since then, The Phoenix Real Estate Guy (or “TPREG” for short) went from a readership of one (well, three or four if you count family) into having over a million unique visitors in its last full year of prime activity. It helped us open a brokerage, and it opened a lot of doors.
‘Twas quite the ride.
Today, I am excited, thrilled, a bit apprehensive and yeah — a little sad in some ways to announce that I’m turning over the reigns to TPREG. Yep, it’s been sold — to three world-class human beings that I’m proud to call friends.
Dean Ouellette, Nick Bastian, and Shar Rundio have agreed to purchase the domain, blog and its assorted attachments and accouterments. Having poured quite literally thousands of hours into this site, it’s not easy to just sell it, walk away and let someone take over.
But I couldn’t think of three better people to hand it over to.
You, oh avid readers, are in terrific hands. I’m super-excited to see what Dean, Nick and Shar will do here, and it’s going to be interesting to watch TPREG come back to life.
The new Phoenix Real Estate Guys (and Gal) have big plans for TPREG, and it’s going to be fun watching what they do with it. Francy and I wish them the best and we
hope know they will be wildly successful with it.
Just be careful folks, it’s kind of like turning over my baby for someone else to raise. Be good to TPREG, write for your readership and most importantly, have fun with it! (As I know you will.)
Maybe the new owners will invite me back for a guest post or two…
As I said in the first post ever published here, “who knows what this will bring.” We’re about to find out what the next decade has in store!
