The Magic's new home is almost finished! After years of haggling for a new Arena, the Magic and Orlando fans have gotten their wish. I don't know the financial details, but when we lived there it was bantered back and forth more than once. The Magic made it to the playoffs this year and Orlando showed up to support them with huge banners all over the buildings downtown. Just take a look at these billboard size banners all along I-4. What great fan support!
Looking across the St. Johns River in downtown Jacksonville Florida from the Hyatt Hotel on the South bank. The Wachovia Bank building is in front of the camera. Taxies ferry people across the River downtown, and Four Bridges get the job done, too. Porpoises can be seen swimming and jumping through the downtown area sometimes. (13 comments)

IT HAPPENED AGAIN! ANOTHER ACTIVE RAIN MILESTONE AT 300,000 POINTS - 05/17/10 11:51 PM
IT HAPPENED AGAIN! ANOTHER ACTIVE RAIN MILESTONE AT 300,000 POINTS This just slipped up on me in the middle of commenting and soaking up some more knowledge from the likes of Kat DeLong and Jeff Dowler fresh from RainCamp in LA. There is simply no way to fully express what it feels like 500 posts later except to say that the knowledge gained here is in large part responsible for keeping our business busy during a time when many agents around us are scratching their heads trying to figure out where all their business went. To all those out there wondering (65 comments)
If You Can Do This, You Can Be A Realtor® - 05/15/10 11:26 PM

Pass the State Licensing Exam. 3. Be a self-starter - find ways to attract business to you rather than sitting by the phone waiting for people to call. 4. Once you have a Buyer or Seller to work with, then the fun begins. 5. Display enough value to convince them to trust you enough to do business with you. 6. Continue to display enough (12 comments)

ACTIVE RAIN ISN'T GOING ANYWHERE AND NEITHER AM I - 05/03/10 09:17 PM
ACTIVE RAIN ISN'T GOING ANYWHERE AND NEITHER AM I It's apparent that the server switch has taken on a life of its own, and I haven't been able to comment on any posts for a week now. I keep reading on other blogs and sites about people leaving Active Rain and not coming back. Why would anyone leave Active Rain and not come back? Active Rain is a potent Google juice attractor. Still is, even when it's not working right. Google my name and my Active Rain blog comes up right under my web site. I have faith and confidence in (25 comments)
