Welcome to Ralph's Weekly Feature: Two Truths and a Lie: Guess Which One Is The Lie?

Each week, I'm going to feature one Active Rain Member, with their photo, and what they are going to do is tell you 2 Truths about them and 1 Lie.

The object of the game is to guess which of the 3 bits of trivia about them is a lie!

I will post the answer in that same blog at the end of the week on Fridays so you can all find out!

It's a great way to get to know your fellow Active Rain members and staff.

This week, we will be featuring: Yvette Chisholm

Yvette is a Licensed Associate Broker in Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia. Her certifications include CRS, GRI, ABR, e-PRO, SRES, CNHS. She is a top producing, tough negotiator who likes to win!

OK, Here goes:

My client's offer was picked over 10 other offers - because the sellers said they had the confidence that I would get their house to settlement (my clients offer wasn't the highest price).

I showed more than 40 homes in ONE day.


A friend, very knowledgeable about cars, bought a 4runner and thought is would of course be 4-wheel drive, I, the novice, had to tell him that not all 4runners are 4-wheel drive.


OK, gang. Tell me which one is the lie!

Remember, for those members who guess the most amount of correct lies at the end of the month, you will be awarded 1,500 Bonus Points! If there is a tie, each member who ties will be awarded 1,000 Bonus Points!

(Also, for those of you who would like to be featured, let me know, send me your 2 Truths And a Lie without telling me which is the lie and I will put you on the list - remember! make them good ones!)

I just called Yvette.  She is out of town and didn't realize she was featured this week.

She said she would log in later today and reveal the answer.

Hello everyone!  Sorry I was out of touch, my beloved Rhodesian Ridgeback Spenser passed away unexpectedly very recently, and then I went out of town to New York City for a party for a family member.  Okay, so here it is....

#1 is true, and I loved that house and the people who bought it.  It was a great moment and I was really surprised that they picked us.  They are great friends and I love to win!

#2 I actually showed more than 40 homes (and they were single families in one day to two different clients).   We ate while in the car and we were litterally running through houses, the first appointment started at 8 a.m. and the second immediately following it was a starker exchange and they had to make a decision.  We looked at homes until almost 10 p.m. that day.  It was exhausting, yes they both bought a house.  I came up with a distinguishing feature for each house so we could remember them and rated them.  We narrowed down to three, my partner showed her husband the next day and they bought one.

#3 I hear of this sometimes and think it is amusing - so that is the LIE be clear #3 is the Lie.

Thanks everyone for your comments, when I get back I will visit with you all!  Have a great time.  Thanks for calling Ralph.
