Blogging Might Get You Some Dessert at Donna's in Baltimore's Cross Keys! It might also get a new ActiveRain Member!

  

    

                                                Donna's in Cross Keys HomeRome 410-530-2400

It was late in afternoon when we finished an appointment in Baltimore's

We stopped to have a late lunch (or really early dinner) at Donna's. It was relatively quiet and our waitress was a delight.  I ordered the roasted vegetable salad and Lee ordered the grilled cheese and tomato bisque. Oh no...again  forgot to photograph our meals. I asked Janine to bring us a plate of food before serving so I could show you guys. She came by with this avocado and crab salad. Does this  look yummy or what?

Of course, that got the conversation started about blogging and real estate.  Can you guess what Janine does?  Yep she is a real estate agent with Weichert and had not heard of ActiveRain. Just happened to have my iPad so I could show off a bit, got her card and invited her to join. Do you think she will?

 

Asked permission to take her picture so I could make her famous tonight. She was a good sport posing with TLH.  Janine has a wonderful outgoing personality and is into interior design. We talked about staging and I suggested a couple of domain names. Her enthusiasm was showing and Lee told her about my book "Real Estate the Rome Way".  Just happened to have a copy that I shared with her.

We thought we were finished and ready to go when Janine said: "Wait, dessert is on me." She proceeded to bring out this luscious piece of coconut strawberry cake. Again I "almost" forgot to take a picture. Can you see where Lee took a bite, just before I said "hold on!"

Hi Margaret, talk about the fringe benefits of AR!  You got dessert and the opportunity to impart AR into another real estate professional.  What a blessing!  Continued success to you!
