Last Week's Favorites: November 12th-19th

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

It's getting to be that time of the year, with Thanksgiving just a few days a way, and then we're into the Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) full swing.  And there are still so many Active Rain die hards who make the time to write some terrific posts.  And here were some I found from last week:

1.  Belinda Spillman: There’s Nothing Better Than A Day With Surprises  This is a fun post about colleagues and friendship, and a great way to start the week.

2.  Janet Jones: Master Bedroom Closet Upgrade That Helps Sell Your Home  Talk about a cost-effective solution to a common problem!

3.  Mitchell Hall: What Manhattan Sellers Actually Have Control Over  Great advice for people from Manhattan to Malibu.

4.  Rose King: Don't walk away from your dream home - just do what you've got to do!  Is it a real problem or just buyers' remorse?

5.  Iran Watson: Atlanta, GA Hotel and Apartment Photography  For anyone who doesn't get the importance of professional photography for your listings.

6.  Rhonda Duffy: Do Sellers Believe That It Is The Listing Agent's Job To Show A Home To Any Buyer That Call About It?  Cautionary tale!

7.  John Novak:  National Unfriend Day  This one will make you smile, unless you are totally humor impaired!    

8.  Donne Knudsen: Don't Lie or Disappear & There Are No Stupid Questions - What I Expect From My Borrowers  The title says it all.

9.  Tammie White:  Should I Lower My Commission for Friends?  This is an interesting question about how we make business decisions.

And 10.  Debe Maxwell: Are You Just Another Brick in the Wall?  This was my favorite from the whole week - Debe at her very best.

So there you have it!  And I'll see you back here next Sunday, hopefully recovered from my Thanksgiving trictophane induced coma!  So have a wonderful week giving thanks!

Good morning Pat, Thank you for another great list of blogs to check out. For me i love the blogs that were not featured that i may have missed. Some times the new blogs are being added so fast the list moves down the page and they get buried fast.

Hi Pat, As always a great list of the best in the Rain. I have to agree about Debe's post. She is awesome. Not to worry about your L-Tryptophan levels. The tiredness comes for the excess carbs and not the turkey, though turkey has about the same level of L-Tryptophan as beef, beef beans, chicken etc. Now you won't be be sleepy, LOL. Have a Wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving!
