What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain  March 4 to March 10, 2018.


I learn something new every day at ActiveRain!  With this series, I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment.  It could be something techie, something about Real Estate, about a place or person!  Or it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!


charles buellMarch 4: Charles Buell Is There Really a Real Estate Agent/Home Inspector Conspiracy?

Charles' post was featured but I thought it certainly was worthy of more exposure. It is a very well thought out and written post.


michelle finnamoreMichelle Finnamore Staging with colour, does it work in your area?

From one of my favorite stagers, take a look and chime in!!!



jill sacklerMarch 5: Jill Sackler "We're not just giving it away."

We've all heard it before, haven't we? Jill has written a post that is laid out well on this topic.



debbie gartnerMarch 6: Debbie Gartner Did you know there's an easy way to clean tile floors without chemicals?

You can trust Debbie to provide useful information for us! I had one and they work!


robert sicilianoRobert Siciliano Should You Fight or Take Flight When Being Attacked?

It sounds simple, doesn't it? Read this and if you take one thing away from this...BE Alert and Be Aware! (ok, that's two)


Paula HathawayMarch 7:  Paula Hathaway    THE INTERNET NETHERWORLD-Good, Bad, and Indifferent.

There’s a lot of discussion about the big Z and what will happen to agents and Real Estate as you know it. Read what Paula has to say.


elyse bermanMarch 8: Elyse Berman Referrals Matter

First...if you don't know Elyse, please get to know her especially when your clients want to move to Palm Beach County! Elyse shows that getting to know members here does matter and will work for referrals.



nick and trudy vandekarNick & Trudy Vandekar Valley Forge in Winter

Great local post that took me to Valley Forge and gave me an idea of what it must have been like for George Washington and his troops.



alan mayAlan May What do Frida Kahlo, Bindi Irwin, and Chloe Kim have in common?

My great niece will be getting at least one of these! Love it!!!



scott godzykMarch 9: Scott Godzyk How is this for an Open House on a New Construction not yet up?

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to read the follow up and perhaps see a photo!


yolanda cordova gilbertMarch 10: Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert Do you negotiate over the phone?

Interesting question! What do you think?



tom janssonTom Jansson Change Your Alarm Batteries BEFORE You Change Your Clocks.

You may have already changed your clocks but it's not too late to check on your batteries.




Don't forget to check out Carol Williams Second Chance Saturday posts as well. I always find a post or two that I missed.

Thank you for letting me do what I love to do each day... learn something new!

Will Hamm if you think this time change is confusing, Florida is considering staying on DST. That will mess up everything in my mind.

Thanks for the mention Kathy Streib .  I am stunned at what went on here today, stunned, honored and humbled.  I wish Lou was here to see this.  I still remember that class back in 2009 when he said, "if you're not on Active Rain, you ought to be."  


Now, I have to check out all the other great posts.
