When "Thank You" is Not Enough

Allen HaingeSome people give so much, and when you are on the receiving end of their help, somehow "Thank You" is not big enough. But it's what we have, and so to make it bigger, I want to share with people who appreciate the importance of giving.

CyberStars LogoAllen Hainge has given me a great deal in my career, starting with his confidence in my ability when he invited me to be a CyberStar™. Back then I was still a novice about technology but he took me into his group of highly tech-savvy professionals. When we get together as a group, as we did recently in Virginia, I still feel like the new kid with so much to learn. But the CyberStars are like Allen himself – encouraging, giving, sharing people.

Lately I've been working on revamping my web site, and again, Allen stepped up with an offer of advice. He took the time to review and critique my site, and made many valuable suggestions for making it more productive. It's still a work in progress, and there is plenty left to do, but HomeRome.com is on its way to being a better site.

Allen Hainge, you are an example of the best of Active Rain and the real estate profession. Thanks for your encouragement, your advice, and all the good things you do.

My Friend: 

I cannot tell you how much your comments mean.  As only you know, I have benefitted so very much from my association with you, both personally and professionally. 

When I started the CyberStars®, my fondest hope was that it would evolve into a group that cared about each other and that shared unselfishly.  I know of no one who has exemplified those ideals as much as you have.  The people here on ActiveRain have been major beneficiaries of your caring and sharing as well.

I am blessed to have you and your wonderful husband, Lee, in my life…but you knew that, right?  :-)

Hugs,

Allen

Margaret - I had heard of Allen, but had only become acquainted with his presence here on Active Rain very recently.

I signed up to get his newsletters and plan on doing his next webinar. If you want a web presence then Allen and the Cyberstars are the way to go. He seems so giving and willing to share and I can see why the two of you get along so well! You know what they say about birds of a feather!

Take care and have a wonderful week!

Dear Margaret...I could not have said it better...Allen Hainge epitomizes the best that our industry has to offer.  He makes a DIFFERENCE in our lives.  As a fellow CyberStar, I am also so very grateful that through our organization I was able to meet you and Lee and spend some quality time with you both when you were in Boston.

How about those Red Sox!...Yahoo!  The parade is tomorrow...no office meeting!

Your friend,

Jay

I just passed my one year anniversary as a CyberStar and would also like the thank Allen for all he does for the group. The exchange of ideas and technology that happens among this group truly sets them apart from their peers in the industry in the way they use technology to service their clients. Thank you again for inviting me to join the group and you are most appreciated!!
