Although I have been absent from Active Rain for several years, I have continued to receive emails from Active Rain members asking questions about how to place their listings on Active Rain as well as thank you emails for all the many articles I wrote back in the day helping Realtors ®. It has been my pleasure to continue to help Realtors ® on the side while spending the majority of my time with Riede Real Estate and writing on my own outside blog, Sacramento REAL Estate Voice.
Those were the days...back in 2006 when
March of the Penguins won Best Documentary Feature...
which reminded me of how it felt being a new blogger back in 2006 on Active Rain and having such great camaraderie here to help each other out since we were all new bloggers.
Even Active Rain was new back then and needed the support of all the users.
We had to be patient just like the the penguins...there were tons of new changes at Active Rain and we all needed to support each other.
It was a GREAT time, full of memories, friends and clients.
An email I received just last week from Margaret Rome thanked me for jpg's I shared with Listings By Address and she mentioned how appropriate all of the articles from 3 years ago were and how they are still being used today. I remember when I started the group, Listing by Address and the "AR gods" asked, ...WHAT, WHY??? This was before companies got into the Listing Agent's pocket for single URL address sites...and mine was FREE! Still is and your home seller's love it.
I'm so glad that Listings by Address is alive and well being used as a FREE site that gives the Listing Agent the upper-hand!
