debe maxwell: How can you run a business like this and survive for the long term? - 01/26/22 10:50 PM
As I did some research for one of my repeat client, I was faced with the question “How can you run a business like this and survive for the long term?”
Here’s a bit of background. My buyer is a disabled Afghanistan War Veteran, and many of you know that I have always been partial towards helping Veterans in any way that I can. When we originally worked together it took a great deal of effort to find him a home for a few reasons. Here in the greater Los Angeles area, most sellers would prefer to not sell their homes to … (44 comments)

Do you need motivation? Only on a Monday, or other days as well?
I always enjoyed reading other members sharing posts on Motivation. I don’t recall ever having done one, each time I considered it Active Rain had a glitch or there was always some reason or excuse, so it never happened; at least not that I recall. Since today was a relaxing and somewhat quiet day, as I was reflecting on the past and planning the future, I thought why not do a simple post about Motivation instead?
I have always considered myself to be “self-motivated” or “internally motivated” without the need … (47 comments)

debe maxwell: The advent of the Internet, not Sci-Fi it is real it is Wi-Fi - 01/08/22 09:54 PM
This post was inspired by Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist  and Gary Frimann, CRS, GRI, SRES 
The advent of the Internet certainly has changed the world as we once knew it particularly having grown up in the 1960’s and early1970’s. Without giving away my age, I have witnessed it from inception to the present day while some of the younger generations are reading up on it via Google or history books. The purpose of this post is to write about what went to the wayside, at least for me personally, so here goes.
What first comes to mind is when I was … (36 comments)

debe maxwell: Ending the Thanksgiving Weekend: My tradition has been Leftover ... - 11/29/21 11:02 PM
Ending the Thanksgiving Weekend: My tradition has  always been that I would  bake the small pumpkins. They  were part of the indoor  decorations. Now they would become the vessel for the left over Turkey Soup.
From one perspective it is very unusual but at the same time very delicious.
Easy to do, you cut the pumpkin, clean out the insides, wipe with a little Olive Oil the insides and bake them for 15-20 minutes depending on the size at 400 degrees.
In the mean time warm the left over Turkey Soup on the stove top. Then simply fill the pumpkin with the soup and … (17 comments)

Active Rain is an amazing community and I  wouldn't have been able to accomplish all that I did this year without you, our amazing member community support. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
There's a lot to be thankful for this year and here are a few things we'd like to share with you but time is limited. I miss our community mangers like Brad Andersohn the platform was so much better.
Now with that said I am grateful and  thankful for Debe Maxwell, CRS  who does the same for free... shame on those who do not appreciate her hard work...

I have always been a fan of Thanksgiving Dinners with Family and Friends... my first attempt to bring something to a family gathering was about 27 years ago... I made this out of the ordinary Cranberry Sauce... two hours of labor and forgot to take it with us:)) we all had a good laugh... so the tradition continued... I would make the Cranberry Sauce and would have company over and would forget to serve it... gratefully our friends and relatives were outspoken enough for me to get with it.
So with that said this year I made the Cranberry Sauce yesterday and … (35 comments)

debe maxwell: Thanksgiving 2021 is getting closer and closer... - 11/17/21 11:02 PM
Thanksgiving 2021 is getting closer and closer, I hope you have ordered your Turkey and have bought most of your supplies for the 'eating feast' or should I say " Eating Fest"?
To me Thanksgiving is the ultimate American Holiday, it breaks my heart when I see people decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving. A total disrespect of the American History and tradition of Thanksgiving. If you study or recall American history, in 1621 the Plymouth Colonists and the Wampanoag Indians shared a feast that we now call the Thanksgiving celebration, non other than in Cape Cod,  Massachusetts.
So with that said I have … (18 comments)

How is the Beverly Hills 90210 Single Family Market doing during the Pandemic. Well I only chose to do $10 Million or more homes to give you the right perspective.... with that said do not listen to the News Media Platform you are on... check with a local Beverly Hills Realtor... also do not read people regurgitating  old or unverified news 3000 miles away..

debe maxwell: How do we navigate the future? A challenging question... - 06/13/21 12:05 AM
How do we navigate the future? A challenging question and most of us have our own ideas. We live in the information age where a lot of good and bad data is at our fingertips, literally, at the touch of our laptop or computer. We just need to filter through it to determine what is good and what is bad.
People of different professions have different perspectives and concerns on this question too, be it psychiatrists, economists, commercial property owners, small and large business owners, landlords, and even Realtors. And let us not forget the politicians whose perspectives and agenda can largely … (64 comments)

debe maxwell: We are Unstoppable! Follow this recipe and you will be unstoppable too... - 04/03/21 11:39 PM
Having attended some of Berkshire Hathaway’s Virtual Convention which was held the last week of March, I wanted to share Convention's motto with you - "We are Unstoppable". 
Our CEO shared his belief and observation:  Take care of your clients and then everything will fall in place. You will get commissions and referrals from clients . The primary goal is to take care of them and not focus on the commission. (This has been my concept for the past 26+ years that I have been practicing real estate.)  
 Chris Stewart calls agents who focus primarily on commissions as 'transactionally focused' vs. ‘relationship focused’.  Those … (41 comments)

Margaret Rome I would be remiss if I did not participate in your Active Rain Challenge. I have been on Active Rain longer than I can remember. Seriously ask Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089   when I joined! She was the first one to ever comment on my first blog post. I never forgot it, although the post was mediocre to lousy at best, she made me feel good. Here I am ten plus years later and I am on the first page of the Leaderboard go figure.
Over the years I  found my voice and started actively participating and connecting with other Active Rain … (48 comments)

Diane & I can never get tired of Hamachi. We have a fantastic Japanese Grocery Store nearby and I get fresh Hamachi, same as what you would get in a fantastic Restaurant. So, what is Hamachi? Well it is Pacific Yellowtail. It is the most desired sashimi among the connoisseurs so wit that said this post if for our friend  Debe Maxwell, CRS   … We had this New Years Day just for fun while I was preparing the other course…..

March Active Rain Challenge - Book Smart because Books and art often go hand-in-hand. I went to a private Art Show and took this picture.  Just so that you know, one of my clients was holding  the Invitation only Art Show at the Chateau Marmont  on the Sunset Strip. This is the place where the who’s who of Hollywood love to hide for a night or two but love to be seen having breakfast or lunch in the various garden eateries, but I am digressing.

I am so grateful that, the  Active Rain Meetup in Boston was such a huge success, thanks to the Coordination of Lisa Von Domek    I am sorry that I this post is a bit late. I have many excuses never the less it does not change the lateness, so I will not bore you with them.
First let me mention about the weather: it was a stereo  typical New England Weather. As the locals know, it can change on a moment’s notice. Jeff Dowler, CRS  emailed us that it was “chilly” since he got … (65 comments)

The unintended consequences of the National Association of Realtors (NAR)  meeting in Boston, MA are numerous. I thought I  would share some of them here anyway. The best part is an Active Rain Meet UP!!!
Well for starters, it will help the economy of the greater Boston area. From hotels to restaurants there  will have a spike in their bottom line. This clearly is great for the local economy. Not mentioning there will be a few Realtors who will not be properly dressed so some nice warm clothing purchases will also be achieved and of course there might be a possibility of … (34 comments)
