Realtor Magazine's Open House Master Video is Here!
REALTOR® Magazine was in Baltimore for two days to shoot a video about techniques for successful open houses for their Masters Series. It was the perfect opportunity to get ActiveRain friends together - and we had a great time. On the first day, we had an open house at one property and followed it with a delicious crab dinner and great conversation. The second day, the cameras followed us again, this time starting in the early morning for a workout at the gym and then to a second open house. What a treat it was to have so many ActiveRain friends attend.
Realtor Magazine's Open House Video is Here! First ActiveRain Open House Update!
The First ActiveRain Open House is history, but preserved forever thanks to REALTOR Magazine. It was a two-day marathon, and from all that time and filming, they boiled it down to about 7 minutes of video! You'll see some familiar faces in the video - how many can you pick out?
Once again, I thank all my good friends and new friends for coming together to make the First Active Rain Open House a great success.

Real Estate the Rome Way
Trulia.com chooses the best real estate books of 2008
Margaret Rome knows real estate. As an agent for more than 25 years she has built a reputation as one of the top Realtors® in Baltimore, MD. Now, thanks to Trulia.com's year-end choice, more people are getting to know her. Real Estate the Rome Way was published in December 2008 and landed on the list of Top 10 Real Estate Books in 2008 by Trulia.
After successful careers as a pediatric nurse and a ceramic artist, Margaret Rome found her niche in real estate in 1990. She has developed time and energy management techniques that help her to be a consistent top producer, while creating client relationships that lead to repeat referrals. Rome has taken the lessons she's learned the hard way and put them in Real Estate the Rome Way as a guide to success in any real estate market.
Imagine waking up in the morning looking forward to the adventures of the day, knowing that you will have fun and be rewarded, both emotionally and financially. Think what it will be like to have your clients send "Thank You" notes for helping them buy or sell a house. Picture yourself being congratulated on winning yet another top performer award. Margaret Rome has done all those things, and what she has learned can help other real estate agents do them, too.
Starting with no real estate sales experience but lots of enthusiasm and a thirst to learn, Margaret had her first listing and first sale almost before the ink was dry on her license. The story of how she did that – and all that has followed – is what you’ll find in her new book, Real Estate the Rome Way.
After successful careers as a pediatric nurse and a ceramic artist, Margaret Rome found her niche in real estate in 1990. It was not a good time to be a new agent – the real estate market in Baltimore, MD, was slumping and there were horror stories swirling through the industry of how long it was taking to sell a house. (Sound familiar?) Since she was new and didn't know better, she ignored what "everybody" knew about the market and proceeded to start listing and selling.
Real Estate the Rome Way is the ultimate guidebook for new agents and seasoned professionals alike. Here you will find stories that illustrate success strategies, and some that were learning experiences about what not to do. You’ll learn the core principles that are the basis of success, and you’ll see how they have worked in real life to build a highly successful and rewarding career as a solo agent. You will see that while you cannot automate success, you can use tools that will help you become a success – a lasting success – in real estate.
During booming real estate markets, many people jump into real estate seeing quick, easy money. When the market turns – as it always does – the agents who have taken the time to learn their businesses and build relationships are the ones who not only survive but continue to prosper.
Real Estate the Rome Way was published in December, 2008 by The Silloway Press, Columbia, MD. ISBN 978-0-9802057-9-4.
