Here is Russel's weekly Golden Oldies post. I always find them fun to read and comment on.
This is a reblog, and I always disable comments on reblogs out of respect for the original author who did all the work. If you would like to leave a comment, click on the link below and leave your comment with Russel who deserves your support with your comments.
Check in here each Saturday no later than noon Pacific Time and immediately find ten to fifteen Golden Oldies that I think are worthy of reading, commenting on, and perhaps even reblogging.
How Golden Oldies works: I choose the people first and then I slog through their blogs for days on end to find an old post that is worthy of reblogging and that has few comments. After I read the post, I choose a snippet to include here.
Once you appear as a Golden Oldies, you won't appear again. No same old, same old here. No highlighting friends week after week. No highlighting any posts that have already been featured by ActiveRain.
In my blog we spread the wealth around to try to help as many people as possible get a little extra Google juice and some more comment points. If you haven't appeared yet, don't be surprised when you do!
If you don't like any of my choices here, check past Golden Oldies since I always search out posts that are not time-sensitive. Of course, you can also go find your own! So there!
Following are today's Golden Oldies. Read, comment, and reblog. Be sure to tell them that Russel Ray sent you their way!
Did you get feedback for showing of your listing? (July 26, 1010), by Praful Thakar, Keller Williams Realty (Andover, Massachusetts). I am always surprised at two faces of some of the agents. As a listing agent, they want the feedback as soon as the showing is over. As a showing agent, they would expect to 'hold on' for a while as buyer may take time to decide.
When did homes begin to "boast?" (January 3, 2010), by Beverly Femia, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty (Hampstead, North Carolina). For example, this house "boasts" a large master bedroom or "boasts" a Jacuzzi tub or.... I say, enough with the "boasting." In fact, "boast" has always had a negative connotation right up there next to brag.
Communication ~ Did youknow? (November 1, 2010), by Laura Baker, Ready? Set,..Sell! Home Staging/ReDesign (Madison, Wisconsin). Every Communication is Really Eight Communications.... No wonder we seldom get anything strait the first time around!
Haunted house for sale? (October 31, 2009), by Rob Arnold, Sand Dollar Realty Group (Orlando, Florida). The night after I bought the house, I wanted to go and check out this supposed "curse." I will admit that I did hear a bunch of noises when I was over there. It sounded like the whole house was moving. But it wasn't from ghosts. It was from....
