Where's My Card? I Have To Admit I Have a Problem. - 06/29/10 11:49 AM
I am an addict and I know it. I wake up in the morning and look at the weather at NOAA then I fire up Facebook and see who is around. Next I check my MLS for new properties and updated prices. Then I forge onward to check my email and look for orders from my other business, Mary Kay. Well this morning I had NO INTENET! I went in to my home office and reset the modem. NOTHING! I checked all the cable connections. NOTHING! I ran diagnostics many times and always came up with the same (10 comments)
Making Real Estate Work These Days May Take A Little Extra Somethin" - 06/15/10 11:07 AM
Hello ActiveRain. I had to stop by to see all my friends for a moment. Yes I am still working my Real Estate career but the financial strain of the past year has forced me to look elsewhere for income. I know many of you are feeling similar stresses and really want to stay in the Real Estate game but are considering taking part or full time JOBS because you just are not able to make ends meet. Mickie Ds might be looking like your next step on the career path at this point. Well I am here to offer any (5 comments)
No It's Not About The Points... But They Are A Guide. - 06/07/10 06:47 AM
Yesterday I achieved a milestone in points here on ActiveRain and I mentioned it in my post about Google Juice. Yes I was celebrating the Juice and the Points. There was some question of the value of the points asked. It is correct that, in and of themselves, points don't mean anything. People could post just about anything as long as it met the minimum number of words and basic AR Guidelines and they could get points. But most of us here choose to use points as barometers of our efforts. The true value is in the relationships developed and the (46 comments)

I came to party this morning! Well I feel like this is a homecoming celebration. I managed to post a few times this past week and I am making an effort to make more time for AR. I know making time is hard but the value of this network is incredible for bringing your presence to the attention of search engines.

I was at the top of page within minutes of (14 comments)

They may be facing a world through the clouded lens of abuse or (4 comments)
What's It Gonna Be Huh? A Rant or A Solution.... Real Estate Tip of The Day - 06/05/10 06:46 AM
Frustration is commonplace in real estate today. As real estate professionals we are dealing with many hurdles to get every deal through to the closing table. If it is not an appraisal problem it might be a different mortgage issue. If it is not a glitch in title work it might be a problem with the certificate of occupancy. Well it is part of the game we choose to play so can we all agree that we work on the issues rather that repeat our frustration over and over again? When we are faced with a road block we can respond (14 comments)
