homerome: Instant Gratification The Morning After
- 09/25/16 07:48 AM
And I thrive on instant gratification from ActiveRain.
Night time is when I write my daily blog posts.
There is even a group called Late night early morning.
In the mornings when I log in...it is like Christmas.
I see all these responses, comments and answers to whatever I talked about 6-8 hours earlier.
For me it is a good way to close my busy day and a good way to start again.
My posts can be a question about posting a photo, sharing one of my new listings, a topic for my radio show or an impromptu open house.
I don't wait for SEO or click count or number

homerome: Just Give Them The Information
- 09/22/16 03:54 PM
This week I spent some time on the phone with a potential client. The initial contact started via email asking questions about some of my properties. Whatever the question...I just gave answers.
I did not ask or expect this person to give me any information. There were a few more emails, a few more questions and a few more answers.
And then I received a phone call from this same potential buyer. Again asking a few follow up questions and reminding me that we had been in touch through email.
Again I gave answers and discussed the properties. This potential buyer opened up

homerome: They Gave Up Kitty Kitty
- 09/18/16 07:10 PM
A few years ago I was working with classic clients, both in their ninth decade. They had been living on a small farm in an old two story house. Due to age and health issues, it was time for them to move.
A condo was chosen and they proceeded forward.
While at their home, signing the paper work, I noticed their beautiful cat.
Kitty Kitty, as they called her, was everywhere. We sat down at the table and Kitty Kitty was gently nudging the seller and there was continuous contact. It was a love affair.
But uh oh...the condo they were purchasing had a No Pet policy which

Now this is the kind of home I love to sell.
It is contemporary, it is unique, it is well thought out, it has the master on the first floor, a gourmet kitchen with silestone counters and a walk in pantry.
The nine foot ceilings are wood with beams. The floors are hardwood and it is sitting on a wooded two acre lot in Greenspring Valley. The home is better than brand new...only thing not new is the 43 year old foundation.

- 09/13/16 06:43 PM
Yesterday I gave a gift to a friend.
The gift was an ActiveRain invitation.
This is nothing new...I have been inviting people, I care about, for the past 10 years.
To me this invitation is a gift just not wrapped as one.
Over the years, I have invited countless people to join...many have...most have not. Of the ones who joined there is not a handful that have become bloggers.
Tonight, I noticed my friend signed up, linked to his website, added his profile and his photo.

homerome: Blogging Tip...Use A Photo
- 09/11/16 06:44 PM
Many of us write a blog each day.
But there are occasions we run out of time, get too busy, have family/ social obligations...maybe even have a life.
For these times a photo might be just enough for your daily posting.
Always keep a camera handy...no longer a problem as long as you have a phone. No more excuses..like...I forgot my camera.
Here's the hardest part. Remember to use it often during the day!
When you reach those days that a blog might be too time consuming...just take a look at your recent pictures.
Most things that were worthy of your time and camera lens
can be made
homerome: Giving Advice With Confidence
- 09/10/16 07:07 AM
This is inspired by two separate posts Pushy or Proactive by Jan Green and Nice is not a profession by Jon Zolsky, Daytona Beach, FL
It reminds me of a lesson taught when I was a young Head Nurse and had the opportunity to be trained along with the new interns and residents.
The Chief of Pediatrics
(Murray Kappleman author of
Signals, What Your Child is Really Telling You)
wanted these young doctors to show they were confident in their diagnoses.
Dr. Kappleman wanted them to make their best trained diagnoses but sometimes doctors, young and old, make mistakes.
When giving a diagnoses of mumps, give it with conviction and the

After reading this you might understand
why I take time to call others?
Making calls to ActiveRain members is not new for me.
I have been calling since 2006.
I blog daily, I comment daily and I call an AR member daily..
This comment came from a new ActiveRain member Maria Sapio
