Looking for a fun and easy way to re-connect with past clients? - 08/31/10 03:02 PM
Looking for a fun and easy way to re-connect with past clients? I love to get in touch with past clients and friends from way back. Facebook has made that easier than ever but in a way, it has also de-personalized it. I mean, with one click, we can wish someone a happy birthday, tell them we "like" their photo or status, or even poke them! Another option we have to reconnect is the old fashioned phone call but then you need to have something to call about. Nobody wants to be the irritating sales person who calls with the impersonal (7 comments)
Active Rain Success Story: The Proof is in the Pudding! - 08/26/10 02:29 PM
Active Rain Success Story: The Proof is in the Pudding! I finally get to write one of these babies! I closed a transaction from an Active Rain referral, this means I get to write my very own Active Rain Success Story! This isn't the first taste of success from the rain, I do have some leads in the making and a few listings on the market, but until this summer, I had not actually CLOSED on one yet. Well folks, here it is...money in the bank directly thanks to Active Rain!

Is it time to "hit the pavement" or is that just old school? - 08/26/10 11:56 AM
Is it time to "hit the pavement" or is that just old school? As we neared the end of an office meeting yesterday, my colleagues and I started a discussion on prospecting, marketing and growing our businesses. The usual suspects were part of the conversation (i.e. social media, blogging, sphere of influence, etc). I am 100% convinced that those types of activities work. Lucky for me, RE/MAX Access, happens to be (IMHO) one of the leaders in social media and blogging in the San Antonio area, so I am blessed to have some amazing mentors in that arena. This post, however is not about the "new" way of marketing. It (7 comments)

Less than two years ago, I had not ever read a blog, much less written one. Thanks to Active Rain, here I sit, almost 2 years later with a good number of blogs under my belt and priceless knowledge, content and resources I never thought I would possess. I have learned everything I know about blogging from the AWESOME folks in my office (Kristin Moran, Sheila Moran and Matt Stigliano) AND from the AMAZING folks here at Active (3 comments)
photo courtesy of: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kretyen/2782900308/sizes/m/in/photostream/ I am usually a pretty easy going, laid back kinda gal. While I have been accused of being hyper and talkative, I am not one to anger easily or roll my eyes in frustration at the mistakes of others. BUT.... I must take a moment to rant. I have seen many folks complain about this exact thing here on Active Rain and I apologize for adding yet another blog complaining about it. That being said....I just don't get this one, I just don't understand why on earth an (52 comments)
photo courtesy of: http://www.flickr.com/photos/52636849@N00/204934333/sizes/m/in/photostream/ I am not going to lie, I have been counting down since August 1st (perhaps even a bit before that). My kids go back to school in 12 days and I AM READY!! Okay, stop judging, its not for the reason you think. I really do love spending time with my kids, they are tons of fun, but during the summer we lose all sense of schedule and routine. I know I am partly to blame (okay totally to blame) but between (13 comments)
