Conversations With Rainers..Pinch Me Already! - 08/31/08 01:03 PM
I am star struck by the net, that's right..who would have thought in my lifetime I would be connecting with people without leaving my chair..without spending millions. This amazes me and I never take it for granted.
Often times we expect the net to work for us by placing posts or just having a website..the truth is you have to still utilize other forms of contact with picking up the phone and face to face..another words prospecting whether you are fund raising or contacting buyers and sellers.
Now when I say I am star struck by the net..its the whole

Midori Released.. Prospecting 101 Training Class In Session! - 08/28/08 11:05 PM
When I was a little girl...I learned early on...ask and you shall receive.. sometimes I had to ask a couple of times using different methods..I know you understand what I am talking about..after all each and every one of us were kids once and even as adults we use this method...its pretty simple..I call it..
When I started the fundraiser I raised $700.00. Prospecting to the test...warm calling that is...Midori Style!
For me I thought this was going to be a piece of cake but once I got there..my goal was too high. I say that because I was slow

Yeah Baby! You Can Re-Blog Mine Anytime! - 08/27/08 04:18 AM
Call me an SEO tramp...or maybe smart! Re-blog I love it for many reasons. I see opportunity with reblogging and lots of it. Is reblogging a word? well not according to spell check! :)
You want to re-blog one of my posts..Thanks and go for it. At first I didn't understand the whole thing but the term made sense.
I don't see the plagiarism factor...I don't see anything negative about it...maybe I just don't know or maybe I just don't care.
For me the good outweighs the bad...
Sometimes you have to take risks..to distinguish the differences
How bad can it
Warning-Craigslist..Fraud and Ebay! Be Very Careful, Warn Property Owners! - 08/25/08 10:42 AM
This morning "The listing machine" had a story he wanted me to blog about. It's a true story and can happen to anyone. Recently he has been working with one of his customers to purchase some vacant land. Now his customer has a house to sell it was placed on craigslist. He placed it there..and was shocked at what he had found.
This is not one case of this there are several on Ebay right now!
While going through ebay this same customer found his property on ebay..not placed there by him or by the listing machine.
While looking at the ebay listing

Things To Question On A Listing Appointment - 08/20/08 11:33 PM
I love listings! Nothing can really change my mind. Through the years my questions have evolved. One thing is certain I have to know my product, I have to believe in my product and just like the consumer I need to see value to bring value to the table.
So when you take a look at the value sometimes you have to go back.... go back to when they first purchased the property. A few things to question when you are on a listing appointment:
1. Do you ask for your customers past closing docs? I do, is there
Critics Spell Success-Even on Activerain! Just Write! - 08/18/08 03:31 PM
I get inquiries frequently, as a matter of fact, I get requests, requests to write on different topics..for me its my favorite way to write. I feel like I am writing for many..many who want to know and are afraid to ask. Some who are intimated and some so new.
I talk with Rainers alot..yes I pick up the phone and shoot the breeze, often time in ends up in a request for a blog post other times they talk to me in how they feel about the rain!
Sometimes I hear they are uncomfortable...unappreciated...and nervous to write.
My response....just write...write what comes
Verbal Offers, I Don't Want To Waste Your Time! Guess What You Just Did! - 08/17/08 10:57 AM
I've been in real estate since the early 90's..and one thing is certain..I have seen agents attempt to reinvent the wheel...I don't mean marketing...I mean the basics..I mean in presenting offers..
Without a contractWithout a depositWithout the terms
Only words and you think your doing your customer a service?
How about mine?
See I thought the intent was to sell a house..if that is the case give your customer a fair shot at it.
Without a verbal offer but in writing, a written offer.
An offer they can visually see via sales contract.
With a commitment which means a deposit
Yahoo! My First Google Alert For My Activerain Outside Blog - 08/15/08 07:11 PM
I recently revamped some of my on line tools. In the process I deleted a few old blogs and created a few others. Things were going great until I watched my SEO plummet..
It was a close call..
I almost changed my plan of action once again.
I watch this stuff...very closely.
Just a few minutes ago, I was pleasantly surprised it was the first time I received a google alert for my outside blog from Activerain.
This is my 400th post and I will have to say. There are plenty Of people to turn to when
Sharing Daytona Beach Florida With You! - 08/14/08 08:35 PM
For the past few days we have been getting plenty of rain.
Hard rain..the kind that makes you appreciate the blue skies once the rain ends!
Sunsets in Daytona Beach, Florida sometimes are so incredible.
Incredible enough to tell a very good friend, I need to snap some photo's I gotta get off the phone.
Tonight the skies were so incredible..like I have never seen before.
Lucky me, I live in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Wouldn't you agree?

Karma-What Goes Around Comes Around-Even In Our Real Estate Worlds! - 08/13/08 03:23 PM
This past Tuesday we had our Daytona Area Association of REALTORS general breakfast at the Halifax Marina. Now I have to admit, I don't like being somewhere in the morning at 8 am unless I am on vacation but for me I just roll out of bed...go over the bridge and park..Lucky me!
Once I get over the shock of being out and about at 8 am I truly enjoy myself.
The best breakfast in town and actively participating and listening, yes I am in my element..its pretty social and it's FREE!
At our general meetings we usually have some incredible speakers, 50/50
Web 2.0 is Huge! Midori Is Going Places! - 08/11/08 03:20 PM
Recently I have decided to reduce the amount of time I spend on the rain. Its not easy especially for someone so addicted.
One of the things that made me go this route was the fact that now I am expected to have a second life..
I'm soooooo busy with the first one but I managed to get set up and situated and I have to admit I really like it.
Hey I'm a hot blond in my second life that's because I can't resemble Nancy Dance!
Its like playing barbies for me or better yet...The Sims...

Prospecting-Just Like A Beat-Blog-E-Mail and Call! - 08/08/08 10:39 PM
Your blogs give you many benefits with SEO, a familiar name/face and an on line presence. Did you know you really can build relationships via your blogs?
Quality content, consistent and interesting will get you return readers, fans and some blasts from the pasts..once you start building relationships you got yourself a strong sphere of influence. But how do you get your sphere to take you serious? Here are a few of the observations I made.

One Real Estate Listing Could Be Worth Millions in Additional Business! - 08/05/08 02:56 PM
As a real estate trainer I firmly believe that listings are the name of the game. If you didn't hear me say it well here it goes again, "LISTINGS ARE THE NAME OF THE GAME!"
Without listings you wouldn't have much to sell!
Did you ever stop to think that the tools you utilize in attracting real estate buyers may very well increase your sellers at the same time?
If you use these tools to their fullest...one real estate listing could be worth millions in additional business!
Let's think about this:

A Star Is Born! - 08/02/08 12:17 PM
July 27th at 7 pm, I recieved the call. "It's Time!" Anna has gone into labor and we are at the hospital. You can go in through the main entrance." I got a bit excited and I admit I did question, will I be a good coach? I want to be..I took a class...had my own kids..this is going to be a piece of cake at least I hope.
When I arrived at the hospital I ran right into dad, didn't greet me just pulled me into Anna's room.
I saw relief in his face and gratitude immediately...I took
