I would like to introduce myself and thank everyone for all of the great information!

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Sunbelt 3202583

I am new to Active Rain and I am really excited about my new journey in the rain!  I am in the Ft. Myers Cape Coral area and have been in Real Estate for a total of 7 years. I am from New Orleans and moved to Florida after Hurricane Katrina.  I was in Real Estate in new Orleans for 2 years and when I moved to Florida I worked for a New Home Builder.  I decided after my children were born to get back into General Real Estate.  I have been working with a team for a while now and decided to break off on my own and now HERE I AM! 

The areas that I serve are Ft. Myers, Bonita Springs, Estero, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres. I love selling water front properties and ove working with new home buyers.  My office is in Cape Coral Florida which has 400 miles of water way and 125 miles of that, lead out to the Gulf. Due to the market, you can get Gulf Access properties starting around 200,000 and up and a lot of those properties sold for approx. 600,000 and up a few years ago.

I have heard about Active Rain, but I had no idea what it was about.  I have been on for a week now and I am amazed at how much great information everyone has to offer  I have to admit that it is has my brain on overload!  I look forward to all of the good advice, ideas or information that anyone would like to offer.

Michelle, may I offer my own personal Welcome to Active Rain.  Sorry I am a bit tardy on my welcome.  This IS such a "helping" place.  Lots of folks who would love to share.

By the way, I see that you have not included this post to any of the Active Rain Groups... so I thought I would offer a suggestion.

Active Rain encourages us to include each of our posts in as many as five of the Active Rain Groups.  This puts our posts in front of the maximum number of eyeballs... which means more readers, and a greater possibility of comments... and of meeting new people.

Here is a tutorial I wrote that might help.  Using the Active Rain "Groups Feature."  I have been told that many Newbies, and some Oldbies as well have found it helpful.  Take care...
