Coming Back Home to Active Rain

Real Estate Agent with Pat Bennett Realty MA 9508945 NH 059297

Becoming a Realtor is not only a profession but a responsibility to yourself and the public you serve.  A few years ago when I was new in the business, I was introduced to Active Rain.  At the time, I was still trying to get a handle on my work and trying to prioritize what I needed to do.  Marketing was a skill I had to learn as well as how to be a salesperson. I was not successful at either at the beginning and had to find a job to keep up expenses and etc.  Though I held my license through it all and kept up with classes and learning, I never quite felt that I could deliver a decent presentation.  During this time I did start an account with Active Rain and am ever so grateful, for during the years that I could not truly do my job as a Realtor I found solace in the fact that I could read what my fellow agents and business people had on their minds.  I could not contribute much since I had not the experience to speak to this august body.  Today I am happy to say that I am now a full time Realtor and will be contributing whatever I can to a well written post.  I even updated my photo.  I think that there are quite a few out there who have very good reasons for not posting at present but, don't give up on them because though they are silent, they are learning from one of the best sources I know.  Thank you one and all and thank you Active Rain.
