Nature Reading

Services for Real Estate Pros with Rate A Home

It's been awhile since I posted on Active Rain. Hello to all my friends.

I wanted to tip my hat to Joyce Ward, in her first publication of a children's book. Joyce is a mother, grandmother and a true Nature lover. Her gift to her grandchildren was a lasting memory that she wanted all parents and grandparents to have the same opportunity to provide to their children and grandchildren. Joyce wrote a book about a true experience she had with a little fellow called a Bob White, while visiting her mother.

The book is easy reading, filled with great illustrations and educational, that makes a great gift. The inside cover provides an area that allows the person gifting to personally sign the book to the receiver. Would make a great gift for clients children or your waiting room.

You can visit her web site at

Congratulations Joyce, you did a great job while providing a neat educational gift for our own grand kids!

Hi Shirley, it's been a long time. Glad you stopped by and checked out the web site. Joyce will be so excited, she is just a wonderful caring person. Thank you and I hope your grand daughter enjoys the book as much as our grand kids have.

Good morning Sally, great to hear from you and thanks for stopping by. Life has been a bit crazy, but that's life. Still trying to get Rate A Home to take off in this great real estate economy. They chose to start the business at the slide when expenses were more important then service to agents, but it appears to be turning for the agents which hopefully is a good thing. The post above was my first in over a year, miss everyone here. Still stand that its the best site on the web.

Hope all is well with you and your family.

Thank you for stopping by Steve. You may want to have your wife go to Joyce's web site and contact her for any help or input in getting her book published. It's cool to see them finally go to print after all the work they put into them. Best of luck in her venture and keep encouraging her to get it done.
