Another great site by seo-guy. I've been hanging over in the RealEstate forum and lurking here for a while. Finallly I decided to come out and swim with the big fishes ;) Thanks for a great resource, I've been humbled and learned lots.
I just popped up a new site last night and would appreciate any thoughts and opinions. There's lots more content to come but the goal for this client is to target Lake Wallenpaupack Real Estate and some other local kw's before moving into some move competitive terms.
I look forward to hearing your opinions and suggestions.

The site lacks some nice design work.
my 2 cents ;)
I have to say I agree with Cyber, but I will expand on his comments.
A 12kb backgroud image is not up to the job. Either don't do the background image or make it better quality and put up with the bandwidth. Just make sure it loads after the content.
I don't like fixed width sites. I'd like to control the width of sites using my browser window.
I clicked at a few things before realising your navigation bar was below the fold. That's a bad thing. People actually looking for real estate are looking for houses. They'll immediately click on the "get houses here" link. Only if they find one will they be intested in you.
I would like to underline all the links and have some sort of mouse over effect. Maybe make them a different colour from the rest of the text.
So I clicked on "homes" and got:
404 not found
The requested resource could not be found.
I'm guessing this is because the site hasn't been completed.
For SEO stuff - loads of links from other sites with your keywords are a good thing. Keywords in title and header tags are a good thing. Keywords in your content are a good thing. Overdoing this keyword stuff can be a bad thing. Decent html structure is always a good thing.

Thanks for the comments !
The image is going, I was experimenting with that today as I had it all black and it seemed a bit much but that what the client wants. Sites not "live" yet so I'll get all those links hooked up :)
Keep em' coming and I'll post as I update things.

Just like vord pointed out there are alot of missing pages in there, i just found some more that come up with a 404, you should have your site crawled by one of those free crawlers that test to see if all links are valid.

I'm getting the 404's replaced as the database guy gets things worked out. Site won't be "live" until everythings hooked up :D
