Great find Jim. It is great to hear so many people reading and commenting on what is going on here at Trulia Voices. I think it is a testament to the general quality of answers you see here.

Trulia Voices was also mentioned in the Wall Street Journal yesterday. Quite a week for us! The WSJ article is behind their subscription wall, but you can find it here on Joel Burslem's blog who was is also mentioned, link here: http://www.futureofrealestatemarketing.com/is-an-internation…

In fact we know that quite a few journalists read and participate in Trulia Voices. I met up with Sue McAllister the other week, who is the real estate reporter from the San Jose Mercury News and was telling her all about the service and all the great people on Trulia Voices. She used it to help her with a story she was writing and mentioned Trulia Voices member Mario Pinedo ( http://www.trulia.com/voices/profile/Real_Estate_Pro--71719/ ) in her blog who helped her. Her experience with Trulia Voices is described here: http://www.mercextra.com/blogs/realestate/2007/08/03/real_es…

I'm sure there will be many more mentions as Trulia Voices grows into becoming a great resource for consumers and those that work in the Industry.

Kudos on the find, Jim!

More and more, the news media are turning to blogs and sites such as Trulia to find either inspiration or the meat for their stories.

I have always respected the material CNN puts our and if they are looking at comments posted on Trulia they are getting some pretty unbiased opinions from both sides of the fence.

I think CNN is smart. They're getting the prospectives of both Realtors and consumers.....one stop shopping!
