Now I'm awake - how about you? A positive proposal ...

Real Estate Broker/Owner with SusanHarrisGroup Powered by
Gentle Reader - here in the Real (Estate) World I was heartened to receive several responses - all positive - from Realtors in different areas of the country, even those areas supposedly hard hit by this recent financial (who-knows-what-to-call-it). And EVERY person had something good to say about what's happening for them and others in their markets. So I have a proposal - I welcome your responses posted here - or we could establish some other venue - Let's talk about what good "stuff" is happening in our individual markets! I know it would help me when I'm working with clients to keep a perspective both for them and for me. And, nobody knows the real estate business like we do. It's in our hands. For sure corporate media obviously prefers profits to people & panders to the worse fears if it will sell advertising. Now if we can start telling our story, our way, we can provide an antidote to the fear-mongering that's been going on for way too long. Now an apology - I created too much white space in my first blog - will try to do better on this. (I'll admit I'm new to this - what a great way to communicate with people! But I still don't know how to edit out the white space. Sharon (Toni) Brown from South Ozone Park, NY tried to help me on this. (You should visit her website if you explore her site a little, you'll find some very interesting links) Let's see what we can cook up in our Real (Estate) World. It's got to taste better than what the media is feeding us! Next time I'll tell you a great story. Now I've got to fly away out of town for family...

Susan, welcome to active rain, great post as we all know from history what goes down will correct and come back up eventually, then the media will be asking when the bubble is going to burst.

You write so well!  Why have you stopped?  I hope that everything is well with you and your flight out of town for family wasn't because of bad news.

Take care,

Lucky :)

Susan, welcome to activerain. I think you will find tons of "good" positive stories here as in many ways activerainers present another voice and take on the reality of real estate today. Many of us do good deeds every day by making a difference in our communities. We rarely make front page news. Yet, people remember how we make them feel when we help them with their real estate needs and challanges.
