Welcome to Ralph's Weekly Feature: Two Truths and a Lie: Guess Which One Is The Lie?

David ArtigliereEach week, I'm going to feature one Active Rain Member, with their photo, and what they are going to do is tell you 2 Truths about them and 1 Lie.

The object of the game is to guess which of the 3 bits of trivia about them is a lie!

Each new game will be posted on Sunday, and then the answer will be revealed by the featured member a week later on the following Sunday.

It's a great way to get to know your fellow ActiveRain members and staff.

This week, we will be featuring: Christina ONeal

 

Christina is a realtor with Crown Key Realty, based out of Ripon, California.

She loves her job & having fun & selling real estate...She has been an active realtor since 1999. She has a 20 point marketing plan for her sellers & 3 major points for buyers.

OK, Here goes:

 

I was "detained" (almost arrested) in front of my favorite rock & roll group Loverboy when I was in high school



The best thing I have ever won was a Blue Convertible Mustang, funny thing was I knew ahead of time I was going to win it

 

 

I once held a garage sale for one of my sellers to help them get rid of their things to make it easier to move

 

 

OK, gang. Tell me which one is the lie!

Remember, for those members who guess the most number of correct lies at the end of the month, you will be awarded 1,500 Bonus Points! If there is a tie, each member who ties will be awarded 1,000 Bonus Points!

(Also, for those of you who would like to be featured, let me know, send me your 2 Truths And a Lie without telling me which is the lie and I will put you on the list - remember! make them good ones!)

Dee #40, I know that she won the car and later sold it, but is it true that she KNEW she would win it????

Christine, your guess should be right for another Christine

I thought I missed the contest this month - but still can guess. 1 or 3? Which one should I pick? If it is my lucky month, it should be...#3. 

If you have garage sales - it cannot be just ONCE. Either it is none or more than once.

My guess is #3.

Praful, I have not guessed correctly since I have been "featured". 

Our "rules" must have been changed, as we used to know on Fridays but now we don't seem to get the result until Saturday or Sunday.

Hey Christine~ Ralph has been posting late, so he's trying to allow everyone enough time to play.  I was hoping to know the answer yesterday too.  Hopefully today!

Thanks for reminding me, Donna, busy week so I had forgotten that the "featured agent" was posted late!

Rules are not changed - it's just busy season, getting busier.

It should be Christina's turn now, I think. And I know she is writing an offer somewhere or signing a listing contract papers...

Christine - I think being featured is not so advantageous...after I was a 'featured agent' I have not been doing well in my guesswork. Seems some connection there...hmmmmm.

Oh my everyone, forgive me...I know you need to know my lie.  I was at a Basketball Charity tournament right now & just got home & yes Praful was right I wrote an offer with a brand new buyer today....Enough of me.  Lets get to the fun stuff.

#1...I was "detained" (almost arrested) in front of my favorite rock & roll group Loverboy when I was in high school.   Yes this is so true.  It was a Loverboy concert at our local amusement park.  The police thought I had a knife, which I didn't (for the record).  I was embarassingly wearing red spandex pants and some half shirt (I am so happy I don't have a picture of that outfit to prove this).  I was kicked out of the concert just because they thought I had a knife.  I had to listen to Loverboy outside the venue (I cried the whole time).  This was the era before cell phones & pagers, so I just waited till the concert was over to find my friends.  hmmmm, what a concept.

#2...The best thing I have ever won was a Blue Convertible Mustang, funny thing was I knew ahead of time I was going to win it.  Yes this is also very true.  I saw that some of you read about it when I won this car last year.  It still sounds surreal that I did win it.  So, the crazy part was that I did know I was going to win it.  It was just a pit in my stomach, that I told my husband & family before they even did the drawing that we were going to win it.  They looked at me as if I was nuts (ok, so maybe I am a little).  The car drawing was thru my son's basketball league & every family had to sell 17 of the $10 raffle tickets in order to have them play in the league.  So I bought all $170 worth.  I didn't  want to ask any of my friends to buy them (it was truly a nice gesture).  The drawing was over a 2 week timespan.  They pulled 10 names one week as semi-finalist & then we all had to go back the next week & the scary part was that they did it by elimination & my husband was the last man standing.

#3...I once held a garage sale for one of my sellers to help them get rid of their things to make it easier to move.  LIE LIE LIE!!!!  This is the lie.  I have never had a seller ask me but I am sure if one of them needed help I would do it.  I had one of my realtor friends do this one time (that's how I made it up)

Thank you for being patient.  See you next week.  #3 is the lie

Whoop-Whoop … I got it correct this week. It’s been a long time since I guessed one correct. The thing about #3 for me was that it was so believable … it had to be the lie (LOL)

Ah, rats....another one bites the dust. But it is just as fun guessing as it is actually getting it right.

OMG!  My luck has finally changed.  Since I had been featured, I hadn't gotten one correct....until now.  Christine (44) and Praful (47) we were all in the same boat.  Now we can get out!!!

Thanks Jane - lucky charm? Yes! 2 of 3 this month is a good feeling. Christina, I see my points going up by 1,000 this month (the way you saw winning the car. The Secret!)

Christina, I am sure your client's offer is accepted. Dawn, Christine, it took 4 months for me to get back on track - hopefully, you'll get that sooner.

I am glad I joined winning team of Jane, Dee, Liz, Mykel, Karen etc...

Getting ready for the counting, Liz.
