naggar: CONGRESS NEEDS TO SING SOME PATRIOTIC SONGS - 10/03/13 07:56 AM
That's the problem! They have forgotten the price paid and the lives lost so that they can hold these sessions of truth, break for lunch and live a good life. A perfect instant solution for resolution would be to put on the music, turn it up, hand out the words and on cue...Belt out the songs one after another for about 1-2 hours. Mind you, we will skip the pledge of Allegiance as that doesn't appear to be working
AMERICA IS A BEAUTIFUL DREAM
What these songs do is trigger a national pride, the privilege of being an American and at the same … (6 comments)

naggar: SHUTTING DOWN THE SWORD CUTS BOTH WAYS - 10/01/13 09:50 AM
So, I just may wake up one day and decide to not to do many things I have agreed to do. Oh I will have cleverly disguised announcements to substantiate my position, but then they still have to be tested. Lets see, there are so many things I can decide on NOT TO DO but where to begin is challenging....mm
1. I don't want to pay taxes anymore. No, I just decided that it just wont do. Sorry, but you will have to get along without my income
2. While I am at it, I don't care for some the speed laws. They are not … (6 comments)

naggar: DOING WHAT MUST BE DONE IS THE TEST - 10/01/13 07:25 AM
Yes to being all you can be right here and right now...We wont be back this way again must be respected. Something will come up and it has to be dealt with. It has been assigned to you not by accident but by intent. Whatever has come onto your life radar screen is needing attention and must be dealt with by you for many reasons
MEETING UP
If you haven't discovered this by now, you are missing out on a unique adventure of a sort. There are NO accidents in life. Just as we seek, yearn, investigate as well as gravitate toward what is calling … (2 comments)

naggar: ACTIVERAIN POINTS PRESENTATION HAS LEGS - 09/30/13 06:29 AM
Points in and of themselves don't do what we would like them to do. We must make them mean something. I am reminded of the world of BARBIE DOLLS and how I used to watch my grandaughter take those dolls, clothes, plastic mini-furniture and clothing and even Ken showing up in his car and make it all come alive. BARBIE, and I know this is shocking for many, is not real. The one handling the BARBIE is responsible for her entire life. So it is with points
WE MAKE THE ACTIVERAIN POINTS COME ALIVE

naggar: FOR THE AGENTS EARS AND EYES ONLY - 09/26/13 05:53 PM
I am speaking about the agent remarks section when filling out the listing on the MLS site. Here is where we can speak peer to peer, business to business and talk Real Estate. Things that are necessary to know and help move things forward agent to agent. Many agents do not use this space well and either over do it or under do it
DON'T CONFUSE WITH
Another common area which is not used well is the property description area. Agents have been known to put information in this space that is not supposed to be public knowledge. That's right! This … (6 comments)

naggar: PEOPLE STILL ASK THIS QUESTION - 09/26/13 06:53 AM
Do you own your own home? This is asked as opposed to "do you rent". When the the person answers...I OWN, they swell with pride and accomplishment. Their whole demeanor changes. It lights up, has a confidence and a display of "I did it" aura to it. I'm somebody. Next time this comes up or you ask, watch this because people who own Real Estate are very happy to do so
HQ
Why is that? Can it be a statement of accomplishment? I came, I saw and I purchased? I own therefore I am? Or, can it be the realization of … (28 comments)

naggar: IF ANYONE IS ASHAMED OF ME OR MY MESSAGE - 09/25/13 01:21 PM
If anyone is ashamed of me and my message, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns sayeth the Christ the redeemer of men's souls. A more credible person never walked the earth yet he was treated like an intruder, an unwelcomed guest in the world he had a hand in creating. He stood before them all and they knew him not
HE CAME FROM ON HIGH....
He made himself lower than the Angels and then subjected himself to world powers,  the cruelty of men and to the Prince of this world. When they had their … (2 comments)

naggar: BLOGGING DEFINED: EXPERIENCE OBSERVATIONS and OPINIONS - 09/25/13 07:38 AM
When I remind bloggers that it is so easy to form a post and then launch it, they do and then they do it again. They discover that they always knew how to but believed other wise. It is the same principal when learning to ride a bike. Its knowledge for life and if you haven't rode a bike for a while, when you get on one all you need to know and knew...kicks right in. Blogging is just speaking
start here....ANYTHING GOES
As to what to speak about? Well when you meet someone you don't know what to speak about … (31 comments)

naggar: I BECAME A MALE RAPE COUNSELOR part four - 09/24/13 08:31 AM
The subject is daunting but real and I recommend you visit the four part post if you haven't already. Trauma of any kind is no respecter of persons and people hurt all the same way...within and without and any help one can offer or render to another in need can go a long way toward recovery. Help is what we are all here for and none of us got to where we are without the help of another
HEALING CAN TAKE TIME
The calls would come in, the stories would break your heart, the victims would all handle the episodes differently: for example. … (13 comments)

naggar: I BECAME A MALE RAPE COUNSELOR part three - 09/24/13 08:29 AM
I shared in parts one and two what it is like to volunteer and lend a hand in something that certainly requires help and no amount of training can prepare you for it. It is recommended that your read parts one and two. This part will focus on some things that I ran into during my volunteer work as a rape counselor and being on call 24/7 days a week for 2 years
EMERGENCY ROOM
I remember getting a call and they usually came in to me between 1- 3 am to report to the large public community hospital that was well known. … (2 comments)

naggar: I BECAME A MALE RAPE COUNSELOR part two - 09/24/13 08:27 AM
In part one, I shared how I got started and why and then a little about the training and then what you run into. Very hard to put into words what takes place because this subject is something that is best explained while being lived. It is beyond words and feelings and when it is not, it is emotionally overwhelming and gut wrenching
REPRESSION OF THE RAPE IS WORSE
I would get calls usually in the wee hours of the morning between 1- 3 a.m. Nighttime's is when this type of activity surfaces more and that is just from what is reported. You … (0 comments)

naggar: I BECAME A MALE RAPE COUNSELOR part one - 09/24/13 08:26 AM
I thought the word "MALE" rape counselor appropriate because it was unheard of when I did this back in the eighties. I was in Real Estate and thriving at the time. Money was coming in from three solid businesses and I could not spend it fast enough. Had the cars, the home, income property and the goodies and I seriously thought...How can I give back as a way of saying thank you so much for this success
HM-MM...WHAT'S THIS?
Well I heard they needed rape counselors badly for one of the cities I worked in and I inquired. The rape counseling services were … (6 comments)

naggar: REAL ESTATE LOVERS DID YOU HEAR THE ONE ABOUT... - 09/23/13 07:02 AM
Two sellers, two buyers, an ActiveRain Rainmaker, two agents, a Real Estate attorney, a home stager, a home inspector, a property manager, pest control company, one Broker, an escrow officer, title officer and a lender all came together at the subject property to discuss the transaction.   IT GOT UGLY QUICKLY   After a while, an issue came up that could not be resolved and the emotions flared and threats were made. Quickly things escalated out of control and a serious all out fight broke out. How did it all turn out?   1. The buyers tried to buy their … (10 comments)

naggar: ZILLOW UNDERCOVER AGENTS TOOK ME PRISONER - 09/21/13 02:27 PM
I remember nothing clearly but somethings remain. It was late and I dozed off with laptop logged in to ActiveRain. I remember reading blog after blog, writing drafts, commenting and even posting and then nodding in and out. Then, a boom and my front door flew open and in came in masked geeks with giant z's on their chest. What's going on here says I. They say, we can only give you an Zestimate? What?
WHY ACTIVERAIN
I was taken with my laptop to a room to be interrogated. They wanted to know what ActiveRain was doing to win the affection … (73 comments)

naggar: THE VIEW FROM THE TOP IS WORTH IT - 09/21/13 07:57 AM
For many it starts right after high school. That wanting to get ahead, to prosper and do well is presented and many follow that path. It increases as you increase your interest in it. At some point, your ready to take what you know, learned and believe to be true and then launch it to see how well you can do with your new found plans
RESISTANCE=GROWTH
Many obstacles will come against you but each with its different dynamics. For instance, there will be the resistance that comes with growth. Many people turn away from their dreams or true purpose when … (4 comments)

naggar: BROKER BUYS THE FARM WITH THE BUCK THAT STOPS WITH THEM - 09/20/13 07:20 AM
The Bureau of Real Estate in California lists the Broker failing to supervise their agents as one of the biggest ongoing violations that they have to enforce. Why is that? Why does a Broker fail to supervise? The answer to that question is very revealing to not only the public at large but to the people in the business
THE SYSTEM
There is a system in place that is regulated and expected and when followed it works for all concerned. The public and the professional as well as the organization or Broker can only prosper from this system. Why then isn't … (10 comments)

naggar: HONEY DEAR and MADAME - 09/19/13 06:29 AM
Ladies and Gentleman your thoughts please. Many times the above words are used to address you and others and I want to know what your thoughts are when they do. How it is said is important too. Why it is said is appropriate as well as where it is said. I have seen these words used correctly and open doors and warm hearts
DEARIE...?
You can also take these words and add to them via enunciation and make them derogatory as well. The point is are these words when used correctly, in the moment acceptable to the receiver? How about to … (15 comments)

naggar: PEOPLE WHO KNOW THEIR BUSINESS TALK TO THE POINT - 09/18/13 07:41 AM
The POINT is what someone is asking of you, your business or your chance to make one. Short, sweet and to the POINT is no cute cliche but a very smart way of doing good business. I always wonder about anybody who takes the high road to explain or offer me something when the short road would have done nicely...Red flag warning for me
YOU SAID THAT ALREADY
Too much or wordy or gaudy statements  makes me wonder why? For instance, I listen to everyone and then I notice when they start repeating themselves. That is when they lose me. Redundancy … (10 comments)

naggar: WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT: THE ENDING or BEGINNING - 09/17/13 06:43 AM
Finishing what you start. You have heard this before. How about.."how you begin something will determine how it is finished". Consider also..."it is not how many times you fall, but how many times you get up". Remember this one...The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Or...never put something off tomorrow that you can do today...
So, which one is it? The beginning or the ending that you find the more important of the two?
BEGINNINGS EXAMPLES:
1. Two people meet, court, fall in love and get married
2. You go on a European vacation
3. You are successful … (7 comments)
