Personally, I consider it valuable because it does impact a member’s ego and sense of … (27 comments)

By Patricia Feager, 1/8/19
 
 
My years of experience on ActiveRain and in the business has given me a sense of belonging with people who share similar experiences in the real estate industry. Although I can make a case for each and every rule, I would have to say number 5 is extremely important because it touches on my values with regards to “constructive dialogue” between the membership which “fosters transparency among consumers about the industry.”
 
There is no doubt about it, consumers are bombarded with information from many different resources. Many sources are fake … (25 comments)

Author: Patricia Feager, REALTOR®
 
This is a revision to a previous post written about what the Weltanschauung means on ActiveRain.
 
 
The proverbial wisdom from "The Three Wise Monkeys," keeps me in check. An aspect that most resonates from the Weltanschauung: the guiding principles and philosophy of an organization; a world view, is point #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.   
 
When it comes to real estate, every state has different regulations and requirements to follow the law. Educating clients, customers, and the general public about issues affecting Texas Real Estate … (24 comments)

Who have a book

A king, indeed.
His kingdom is

All this is his
Who hath a book.

Until now a blog has been a lifestyle, a unique personality, creative style; others, including myself have shared the current and interesting industry news, local expertise, including personal life stories, hope, thoughts, and dreams. Carefully or carelessly, words are chosen in content, photos, and comments. Does anyone care? Do members matter at all? Is ActiveRain simply about the Real Estate business? Can the process of blogging become obsolete and outdated? Is Social Media dead … (26 comments)

Tammy was born and raised in Putnam County which is one of counties that borders Lake Sinclair in Georgia. Parents should know that one day their children will grow up and leave them, but they never really leave a place they love.

She learned survival skills, such as, how to problem solve, discipline, patience, and self-respect. Tammy never settles for less.
