It's Weltanschauung Time Again!

By
Real Estate Agent with Evers & Company Real Estate, Inc. AB95346

Once again, Lynn Friedman has challenged us to share out thoughts on Weltanschauung - or our world view and how it fits into our real estate practice or, in this case, out blogging activities on ActiveRain.

Lynn asks us to take one of the ten sections of the ActiveRain Weltanschauung and write about one of them.  So I selected Number 10:

ActiveRain believes that it is in the best interests of real estate professionals to build a community that is focused on educating one another.

To me, this is what ActiveRain is all about.  During the almost ten years I've been blogging here, I've learned so much about marketing, technology, and how members of our profession do things differently around the country.    

All kinds of things come up.  

  • What's the best way to make an Open House work?
  • How do you handle a low appraisal?
  • What about agents who do things to make us crazy?
  • What are the latest tips on getting a listing ready for prime time?
  • How about helping to educate all of those Utah real estate agents who are wondering about water rights and REITs and staying out of real estate jail?

ActiveRain is about educating both the public and the real estate community, and in terms of educating our community, the is the best continuing ed there is!

Pat I've long held the position that ActiveRain is the BEST real estate community in existence for all of the very same reasons stated and then some.

Ed, you're right!  Except that sometimes you have to sort out what works for us locally in terms of basic information.

Maria, what I love is that the old timers learn as much from the newer agents as they do from us!

Alexandra, it's also a great place to learn how we do things differently in different areas.  Lots of ideas to swipe from one another!

Nina, if I ever finally learn how to spell it, I think I'll be really pissed off if they cut us off!

I am successful because experience agents took my hand and guided me when I didn't have the solutions. mentors like Howard Britton and Pat Zaby didn't tell me to do it like them but to inspire me to do it like myself. Giving back is so important and that graritude makes the real estate industry and the people in it a better place.
