active rain: Sensitive Offer to You my Friend! - 03/15/17 01:50 PM
Sensitive Offer to You my Friend!  
I suspect several of us received a message similar to the one below through Active Rain today. Altan has a sensitive offer to present to me and probably numerous others. Gosh I wonder if this could be my ticket to wealth! LOL.. How stupid do they think we are? I have recently received several supposed job offers sent to my Email account which state big salary and little work.. Spare me!
 
This is obviously another in a long list of scams that hackers and or thieves are sending out to probably millions of folks just … (15 comments)

Profile a ActiveRain Member - Noah Seidenberg


For the 2017 ActiveRain Jumpstart Challenge sponsored by Lynn Friedman, one item on her Maxi Checklist is to profile a Active Rain member.  I’ve chosen to write about my virtual friend Noah Seidenberg .

I had the pleasure to speak with Noah this week as I had never spoken to him in the past. We had a very good conversation and it was like … (18 comments)

active rain: Almost Wordless Wednesday on Thursday - Santa Dog - 12/29/16 01:27 PM
Almost Wordless Wednesday on Thursday - Santa Dog  I am been MIA from Active Rain since last week. I was very busy helping to get ready for our family to visit our home in Katy TX for our Traditional Mexican dinner on Christmas Eve and with the family prime rib dinner on Christmas Day. I came down with a bad cold early last week and Christmas Day was my worst day. I came back to work on Tuesday December 27, 2016 and have been swamped with work due to year end activities. Too many things to do and no time for … (17 comments)

Morning Thoughts while Working Out in Katy  
I have changed my workout schedule to separate cardio exercise from  free weights. I now hit Lifetime Fitness in Katy 5-6 times per week instead of every other day. I now have lots of time to think while working out. My mind drifted to the Zillow buying Trulia deal announced this week. I am not sure what I think of this whole situation. What are your thoughts? Good or bad? What impact will this have in the long run on Active Rain?
 
I have been involved in acquisitions during my career … (18 comments)

Help Requested about Active Rain Week here in Katy
 
I am having a problem remembering when a week starts on the Active Rain calendar and when it ends. My question involves the beginning and ending of a week. It ismy best guess a the week starts on Monady and ends on Sunday of any given week during the year. Is this correct? I also believe the normal amount of points are awarded for the first 10 blog posts ( being 200-225 per post) on any given week. Is this correct? I thought the best way to answer my simple questions … (9 comments)

Are You a Fair Weather Blogger?  
Now is where I am supposed to get all confrontal and tell you if you fit a certain description you are fair weather blogger! I personally find it very amusing that there are some active bloggers who write in this style and some folks who  find them so funny. Their approach is to tell all of us how we are doing whatever the topic is wrong and if you knew what you were doing you follow their lead. It sort of reminds me of the “dark sarcasm” words in a Pink Floyd album The … (9 comments)

My Blog Explanation for May 31, 2013
 
I wrote blog yesterday about Cinco Ranch West with a market report. I also including IDX links and a picture. When I went to post it I received an error message of something to the effect “description too long exceeds 65,000 characters”.  All I knew was something in my blog was too long. I copied the error message and ran a Google search and the ensuing data telling me about this supposed error made absolutely no sense to me. This post was the final market report I needed to post for one of … (15 comments)

I Hit 700,000 AR Point Mark in Katy and Google Penguin Questions
Earlier this week I reached the Active Rain 700,000 point mark and frankly no one but me noticed. I guess that was no surprise but I have always been too laid back to blow my own horn very much. If I look back to early May 2011 I was quagmired in the low 70 K point level and had written a few lousy blogs. I decided I would become more imvolved in AR as my business needed a shot in the arm. I made this decision at the same time … (45 comments)

New Agent Bob Please Open Your Eyes
 
I started in the Real Estate business approximately 6 years ago. There were so many things to learn about the this business and its environment but I already had numerous years of experience handling items such as budgeting, finance, accounting, planning, IT, business development plus many other items. What I was lacking was sales experience dealing with the public. Of course I never had to worry about my own web site and how to attract new business. My experience is different from most folks as I am still working a demanding full time … (10 comments)

Active Rain Meetup in DC was one You Should Have Attended.!
 
We are very fortunate as we can fly standby to many places as long as we can get there and back in the time allotted. We were successfully able to go to Washington DC and attend the DC Active Rain Meetup. Pat Kennedy held the Meetup at her home and several AR members attended. The Co-Hosts ( we use to say Co chairpersons) were Pat of course , Cindy Jones and Roy Kelley. Roy had asked my wife Yolanda about attending this meetup and she loves to travel and … (14 comments)

Websitebox in conjunction with Active Rain (AR) has created a challenge for all AR participants to potentially enter. The Challenge involves AR participants to write blog stating 3 things we wish our own websites could do. The original blog can be found here.
I will not mention who is my website service provider. In addition, I will not argue with one of their employees or or other supporters as why I say what I will say below. Once again this is my opinion and maybe my service provider includes these items in what they … (11 comments)

Believe it or not I hit 500 K AR points plus Reflections, AR Google Juice and Thanks.

 
Yesterday I achieved a huge landmark in my Active Rain (AR) membership as I finally hit the 500,000 point level. I know there are numerous other folks with point totals that totally swamp my pathetic amount but if you look back at stuff, whoever would have believed I would at this stage right now? I certainly did not but things happen and here I am breaking the half million mark.
I joined Active Rain way back in the summer of 2007. … (19 comments)

Almost Wordless Sunday August 19, 2012 in Katy Texas
 
Today my step-son opened our door to inform us that he was going to church with his girlfriend and at the same time our dog a Schnauzer jumped on our bed. He immediately put his cold nose plus chin on my back as I was still sleeping. Of course he wanted to play. He had just eaten some canned wet dog food and yes his beard was loaded with dog food juice. Needless to say my back was now also a haven for dog food juice of some kind. … (15 comments)

What I do as Buyer’s Agent for my Clients
 
Many of my clients find me through my web site, Active Rain, my blogging site, or a combination of all. Some check me out on other Social media such as Facebook and LinkedIn after finding me somewhere else. I also obtain new prospects from referrals. As a Realtor, the initial contact I try to have at a minimum is a phone call conversion. I start my list of what I do with the phone contact. This will be a long detailed portrayal of what I do as a Buyer’s Realtor … (14 comments)

ActiveRain Challenge – The meaning of trust to me in Katy Texas January 2012
 
I spent a significant amount of time thinking about this topic before I started writing my article. Trust is a topic where one could write numerous pages trying to define what it means to you. I will attempt to limit my discussion as I have found long blogs are mostly ignored and not read very well.
I want to start with providing a definition(s) I found and copied from an Internet dictionary as to the meaning of “Trust”.  Trust per the dictionary is a … (14 comments)
