Today I am Ranked 8th In Florida

Real Estate Broker/Owner with South Florida Real Estate & Development, Inc. BK3027955


After a long time in this community, writing blog after blog I have finally reached #8 in Florida for Active Rain membership.

Some people get to break the sound barrier, I just broke into the number eight spot - so please bear with the bloviating.


I am so proud of the fact I have met some outstanding people here in the Rain. The members of Active Rain are some of the most helpful people I have met in my life, it is a shame some of my closest friends are thousands of miles away.


There were times I thought I could never write so many blogs or posts - whatever you want to call them. In the early days, when I was a novice - blogs were short and sweet with no pictures - simple.


Now with all the education I have received from Bob Stewart and Lenn Harley - and all the other bloggers who pushed me into "higher" learning - things are becoming more and more of a passion for me to write about cities, places of interest, local information - whatever.

Thank you all for pushing me - inspiring me to be a better writer and a better community member - I am looking 

forward to meeting more and more fresh faces and reading more information to make me a better realtor, business planner, blogger, sales person and friend.

Thanks a million Active Rain!

Congrats Nick!  Top ten is awesome enough - but moving up to eight must feel even better.

Thanks Tni - My goal was to make the top seven in Florida - I am a few thousand short of that goal -

Contratulations!  And I love the pics!  I just watched Top Gun (again...) and the F14 pic rocks.

Congrats on picking up the top 10 in your state.  I'm almost in the top 100 in California so I've got a long way to go.  Keep up the good work!

Nick - congrats on reaching that level. You have some terrific "competition" in Florida, or are they friends in the rain?
