Six Weeks Walking in the Rain! Do You See the Pattern? Thanks ActiveRain! - 10/31/10 01:14 PM
Six Weeks Walking in the Rain! Thanks ActiveRain! Thanks Rainmakers! Thanks Staff Members! WOW! Six weeks ago I did not know about all the opportunities available through ActiveRain! I had heard it was one of "those agent things...where they all talked to each other...but why, I did not have a clue!" Our Regional Advisory Group at DFW MetroTex decided to have a seminar on Social Media. My great take away that day was...CHECK OUT ACTIVE RAIN! I looked around a bit, did not see anything that excited me enough to get involved. A few days later while driving home in a blinding Texas (33 comments)

Happy Halloween from Rockwall & Heath, Texas on Lake Ray Hubbard! - 10/30/10 01:53 PM
Happy Halloween from Rockwall & Heath, Texas on Lake Ray Hubbard! It is a gorgeous day...bright and sunny with a definite chill in the air! Lake Ray Hubbard is sparkling like millions of diamonds and there are a few boats out. The Saturday morning crowd seems different this week. The cool crisp temp could definitely be a major reason, as this is our first really cool sweater weather day. Then there are the parties, the pumpkin patch, parades, and more parties. Oh yes, The Rangers are back in town! Go Rangers! Happy Halloween ActiveRain members and best wishes for a great day in your neck of the woods! (4 comments)

Roll your eyes Exclude someone from a conversation Fail to make eye contact - make them feel as if they are not there Laugh as they are leaving the room Sigh deeply when they have said something A roll of the eyes, a look, a shrug, a sigh, a laugh....you never know what may push someone in (10 comments)

Why Friending People You Don't Know Is Not All That Crazy - 10/28/10 06:55 PM
Food for thought in the ever present question of "do you friend someone you do not know?". I like this slant on the friending issue - you never know where friending someone will take you. Via Gary Woltal - Assoc. Broker REALTOR® SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty): I see both sides of an argument with "adding" people to your network. On Facebook with friending, followers on Twitter, Associates with blogging, Connections on LinkedIn, or Adds on MySpace. Think Why Friending People You Don't Know Is Not All That Crazy.

10 Reasons Why Real Estate Agents Have A Bad Reputation. - 10/28/10 03:59 PM
YES!!! Every one of these are the worst! Another one is going on vacation and not leaving anyone in charge of their business. They just disappear for a few days. Wouldn't you get fired if you did this in another profession? This is good...no, it is BAD! Via Matthew DeFede (Coldwell Banker Franklin Realty): Here is one of my rants and it was caused by a fellow realtor who called me 8am this morning to show a property at 12 noon today and made me jump threw hoops to coordinate it with the tenants and seller and than he never showed up!

GOOD DEEDS ARE REWARDED .. - 10/27/10 09:01 PM
Good deeds do come back in great rewards! I love this post! Lucky Seller to have this listing agent! This is a great example of team work between seller and listing agent! Via Gloria Valvasori, Streetsville Real Estate - 100% Client Service Rating (Signature Service GMAC Real Estate): A few days ago I wrote about one of my clients whose house I have listed.. it had 25 showings, and no offers, so I called in a stager this past Wednesday to give her some advice on how to change up a few things.

Let's face it, Dallas is a sports town! We have basketball, football and hockey, and the Rangers have turned this town upside down! It seems everyone is a fan. No one says "good morning, hello, how are you" these days it is always, "HOW ABOUT THOSE RANGERS!"

I challenge EACH & ALL ActiveRain Rainmakers to get out & vote. We rainmakers are an impressive bunch. Think about this....if each one of us VOTED and reminded five others to vote....WOW!!! Talk about critical mass!
It is our right as American citizens to vote; however, many never do! I believe, as responsible citizens, parents, and business people, that it is our OBLIGATION to vote. Shouldn't we take action to assure that this great country of ours remain the land of the free?

Closet Organization It's a Project! - 10/27/10 12:25 PM
Perfect Project Plan to Properly Present a Property for Pay off in $$$$. Closet Organization is a MUST to present a home to the best advantage.

Don’t Make Vacation Plans When Buying a Home! - 10/26/10 07:04 PM
Good point! I have had both a buyer and a seller plan a vacation during the closing process. What a pain, to jump through all the hoops to get to closing only to learn, "Sorry, we are going away for a little vacation". Good points to mention when the process starts just as we tell a buyer to not buy a new car or something before they are closed.

Quote: To make mistakes is human, to stumble is commonplace, to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity. Author: William Arthur Ward
My early ActiveRain efforts certainly show that I am human, yes; also commonplace, and I can see myself laughing in the rain a lot which means that I am approaching maturity! YEA! Key word is “approaching”!

Taking your listing presentation on line. - 10/26/10 01:59 PM
I LOVE ACTIVERAIN! Everything that I am either working on or considering for the coming year just pops up in a great post! Talk about great timing! I have been trying to figure out exactly how to get my listing presentation on-line and this is really timely for me. I like the idea of projecting the presentation on the sellers' wall! It is difficult to keep both sellers interested in something on a small laptop. GOOD JOB! Thank again ActiveRain for all the great connections! Via Ronald S.

Why do we keep doing it? - 10/24/10 10:09 AM
UPS & DOWNS, UP & DOWNS, UPS & DOWNS! Every Realtor that has been in the business for awhile will have experienced these times. I encourage the agents in our office when they start complaining to, "Be Thankful for the Small Things in Their Business, the Larger Things Will Follow." There are plenty of things in my business, even in the slowest of times, that I am thankful for and that keeps my passion for the business going. This is a great post for the times!

Gaining Back My Trust - 10/22/10 05:17 PM
This is great! People do have to earn their trust with me. I try to be open and receptive to everyone; HOWEVER, the earning of trust starts immediately and builds to the point that they do have my trust. Until trust is earned, it can not be lost. I think that gaining back trust, once lost, would be more difficult than earning it in the first place.

"Today's Mighty Oak is Just Yesterday's Nut That Held Its Ground."
My daughter sent me this quote, which reminds me of some of the Realtors today. Back in the day, when technology started invading our comfortable industry, there were some Realtors (NOT MANY!) who jumped on the band wagon.
There were more who did not! I remember the smug comments from some of the leading agents, top dogs, and divine divas. You are nuts if you think this is going to work! This is a fad! This won't last! Excuse me; I will just do what I am (14 comments)

Service With An Old Smile - 10/21/10 11:12 AM
Thanks again, to another awesome ActiveRain member for a post that I needed. I do not list and sell many of the homes in this age range, but I do at times and have now been properly reminded or an important issue. It is easy to get caught up in the updating and "fluff" that have been added to these homes and, oh so easy to forget such an important issue as the electrical. I am not an expert on this, but I darn sure need to be aware of the issue and propertly inform the client. READ AND LEARN! I DID! Via Jay (2 comments)

Research Study on What Makes a Successful Sales Person - 10/20/10 09:27 AM

Technology Then and Now! We've Come A Long Way, Baby!
Once upon a time, in an industry long ago, before Realtors had cell phones, I was offered an unbelievable opportunity!
A representative from Southwestern Bell, now A T & T, called to interview me about how the business of showing and selling real estate worked.

We spent some time discussing how the business worked, making appointments, showing homes, writing offers, open houses, etc. The telephone company provided equipment for the Virtual Real Estate (3 comments)
Some pretty funny things have happened to me through the years showing homes!

Thanks ActiveRain! - 10/13/10 03:55 PM
Thanks ActiveRain! I am still a bit overwhelmed since I am new to ActiveRain, which somehow seems to be inching the way into my daily life. I love technology and I love changes, so why is ActiveRain a little overwhelming to me? I think it is the sheer massiveness of it and the unique combination of being able to interact with others across the nation,
ActiveRain seems to have a life of its own! I learn one thing, and immediately find out I need to know at least ten more things in order to become a mover and shaker in this aggressive group. I am (46 comments)
