Tri-Cities Tech Tip

By in Miscellaneous with 0 Comments

Yeah, I know, I know – I told you a couple months ago that, despite my reputation for being the techiest tech techster REALTOR in Tri-Cities, WA I’m not really THAT amazing.

But yesterday we had a web site class here at the brokerage, and people were trying to figure out what their domain names would be.  Unless you have a difficult /unusual first or last name, a great idea is to use your real name as your domain name. 

So, my suggestion is as follows  – have a baby or a young child?  Register his or her domain name now.  Chances are, whatever they do in life as they grow older, they’ll need a web presence (even if they’re simply blogging about how you’re the worst parent in the world!). 

A few years ago, we were contacted by a college student who wanted to run for president of his student government organization.  He had the same name as our son, and he wanted to buy our son’s domain, just for a year, to launch his campaign.  We didn’t let him, because once it’s out of your hands, it’s out of your hands.

I know their are a million things we have to do as parents, but this one is inexpensive, takes a tiny bit of time, and will help them out immensely.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
