The Riches in The Niches I'm Finding In RCS-D
 
I feel funny entering my own contest, but some insisted, so here I go...
 
Ironically, my July Contest: Your Riches Are In The Niches! was my entry in the May 2018 Contest hosted by Debe Maxwell, CRS: ActiveRain Challenges & Contest Ideas - What's Yours? 
 
 
We were challenged to come up with a contest premise that would allow us to learn from others in The Rain. I thought to myself, “I have done this at least 5 times during my careers, why not see what others would do?” I was thinking of when I needed … (4 comments)

A friend of mine and fellow gardener, in 2007, gave me a dozen or so
Sauvignon Blanc grape seeds as a gift. Gardeners are always sharing tips, seeds and even labor at times. He encouraged me to plant them and enjoy the bounty of the harvest, but cautioned me it could take several seasons to see grapes; be patient. What he really gave me was a decision that day:
I could look at the pile of seeds in my palm, not see … (23 comments)

Networking is like earning compound interest, which according to Einstein, is the 8th Wonder of The World. Just by adding 10 “A+” or “A” caliber *Power Partners into your Sphere of Influence and you gain the potential of 2,500 connections, to people you can help with their businesses or personal needs and in turn may help you. (The average person knows 250 people according to a study done at Harvard University). Notice I said help not sell-to; your job is to establish rapport first … (18 comments)

contest: Before and After: An ActiveRain Exercise in Editing - 05/21/17 07:55 AM
Photo editing is definitely a skill-set I'm self taught in as it became necessary to improve the quality of my listing photos, before I could afford a professional photographer. I used to take all my own photos and was very careful to edit them prior to posting them, because my clients were going to see them and my target market was going to be marketed by them.
 
It drives me bonkers when I see bad photos in the MLS:
Bad light, messy backgrounds, improper crops, photographer in the reflection of the mirror. There are agents that literally upload their raw cell phone photos and think "that's … (11 comments)

What Tools or Systems Do You Love –
An ActiveRain Contest
 
Technically this is about three tools, but I’ll lump two together since they are at their foundation, the same product but serve two different users ultimately. I wonder what my grandparents who were licensed Realtors in the 1950's through the 1980's would have thought about these?
 
Tool #1 (and 1A)
 
Referral Maker CRM
 
ReferralMaker CRM *MY TEAM*
 
The links lead you to the nuts and bolts, here’s where I’ll share the “WHY?”
 
In 1999, as a new Realtor, I was referred to a computer program called Top Producer. It came on a floppy disc and was … (13 comments)

contest: Your Posts Are the Stones, Your Readers Are the Ripples - 07/15/16 11:57 PM
Your Posts Are the Stone, Your Readers Are the Ripples ...and the Ripple Effect comes from how your posts touch & connect you to people, then a result is born of that connection.
 
I use many social media platforms to promote my business and blogs from Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter & Houzz to LinkedIn and Active Rain. I also try to get clients to post reviews on me in my comment sections of Realtor.com and Yelp.com. I produce local interest videos and local entrepreneur interviews on YouTube.com and of course post all my listings…everywhere social.
 
While the cumulative exposure and effect from social media … (12 comments)
