A Trip Home . . . I Always Find Something New.

steering wheelLast Friday, I headed northward up I-69 towards Michigan.  I was very excited, I was going to see my daughters and spend sometime in the area I grew up in.(Daughter Erin and Me)

Have you ever grown up somewhere or maybe lived in an area for a long time in your life?  Going home is always exciting but also allows me to see the changes more clearly that take place in an area.

One of the things that was different for me, as I passed various areas, I thought of what Active Rain and the people I knew lived in these areas.  Or if I didn't know of an AR person, I thought about who I might know to invite and to sponsor an under-served area of Indiana and/or Michigan.Jonesville  Below is the small town of Jonesville, The FarmThe Barn

 

 

 

 

 

MI.  I know of some agents that live and service this area.  None of which are currently on the network.  Maybe the agent that has the listing of the old farm house (above) might be interested in joining?  It's worth a try . . .

As I passed the Ann Arbor, MI area I thought about Missy Caulk, Ann Arbor Real Estate.  I wished I'd had more time and opportunity to stop by and meet her.  (Not this trip, but maybe the next one.)

As I came up into the Metro-Detroit Area, a couple of people came to mind, like RALPH ROBERTS and Dmitry & Maureen: Moving Metro Detroit.  I visited Eddie's Drive-In (sorry, no picture), Harper Woods and Utica, Michigan while I was there.

How about you?  When you travel somewhere now or hear of an area on the news, do you think about what Active Rain members live there?

While talking to agents from other communities I mention Active Rain.  Only one has joined so far.

Cyndi - as I think about moving I think of the people I have built a common thread with or a respect for and think -  I would love to be in the same community as they are -

Cyndi - I am in Arizona this week, arrived yesterday. As I was flying in, I thought about Karen George and Tony Marriott. Funny - I practiced real estate here and didn't know them before AR.
