In November, 2011 I was 67 years old  and had been a Real Estate Professional for 24 years.  I was approached and asked if I would agree to be interviewed to talk about stepping out of my comfort zone, my journey into real esate, and my knowledge of the internet and social media.  Many agents were intimidated by the internet and didn't know where to start. The message was, if I could do it at 67, then other agents could also di it.  

Here is my take on all those subjects.  



About Me

Here is some information about me, my journey into real estate and, on being a single grandmother raising 3 grandchildren.

The story of my journey into real estate and my social media presence found its way to Chicago Agent Magazine, a prominent Real Estate publication in the U.S.



What a 67-Year-Old Grandma Can Teach You About SEO

by Michael Krisa May 7, 2013

Gloria Valvasori with Better Homes & Gardens is 67 years old, raising three grandchildren, a full-time Realtor and a whiz at SEO and social media marketing!

Now before you say she must have been a computer geek all along, nothing could be further from the truth. A competitive personality, Valvasori began attending SEO training classes at her Better Homes office. After applying those lessons to her WordPress website, and investing her time on her ActiveRain blog and social media accounts, she was on the first page of Google search results for Mississauga real estate – after just six months of implementation.

Valvasori also integrates her various outlets in creative ways, and has seen her followers spike as a result. In the space of seven weeks – during which she posted simultaneously to Facebook and Twitter, routed stories from her blog to her website and engaged in LinkedIn, Pinterest and ActiveRain – Valvasori increased her Facebook page ‘likes’ from just 185 to more than 1,000 (she’s currently at 1,040).

Valvasori realized that her time is a precious commodity, especially with three grandchildren she wants to spend time with, so by leveraging the technology available today she has made her business more productive and profitable.
