SMMI is pleased to announce the appointment of Jay Thompson to our advisory board. Jay is commonly known as “the Blogfather” in the online real estate space.
Jay founded the real estate blog Phoenix Real Estate Guy in May 2005 and has developed it into one of the most widely read real estate blogs in the country.
Jay’s blog was recognized by Inman Real Estate News as the Most Innovative Real Estate Blog in 2009. Jay has also been named multiple times to Inman’s Most Influential Real Estate Blogger list and is widely recognized as one of the top users of social media in real estate.
Jay practices what he preaches. Approximately 95% of his real estate business has been built through blogging and social media. Jay has been quoted in BusinessWeek, U.S. News & World Reports, and is often called upon by local television news reporters to discuss the Phoenix real estate market.
We are thrilled to welcome Jay to the SMMI team.
