kudos, Active Rain, for your Inman award. Congratulations, also, for the wonderful network you've evolved. Not only is there information galore, there are relationship to be made. It was wonderful in San Francisco to meet Jeff Turner and Paul Chaney, Laurie Manny and Ardell. Whatever else Inman had to offer, it was Active Rain and its participants that made me make the trip to San Francisco.  Thanks!

That was a lot of reading...

I'll keep checking in to see if there are any more, and if I find AR in the news and it's not here I'll post it in a comment here.

I've just signed up and totally overwhelmed at all the info that is flowing from the pages.  It's exciting to be a part of a national group of folks who are knowledgeable of their trade!  I've only been a Realtor for a couple of years, but had to wait 30 years before jumping in, brain first...  Enthusiasm still abounds and joining this group is another big step forward for me.

This is linked from the AR homepage... Most recent news item is September 2008.  I'm thinking it's time to either update this post or remove the link from the homepage....  LOL.
