Thank You Margaret Rome & Cynthia Grimes

Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management

Yesterday I wrote a post about not being able to keep up with return Margaret Romecomments.  I had hit post and my phone rang within seconds and I answered to find Margaret Rome on the other end.  She was calling to tell me how much she liked my post and to offer her suggestions.

What she doesn't know is even though I was able to converse with her I was in shock.  Margaret Rome called me She made my day and brought a smile to my face just when I needed it most. 

Now while I know quite a lot of people from Active Rain, some who I speak to all the time, I have never really called anyone myself spontaneously.  Gary Coles had recently written about just this and it has been on my mind ever since I read his post titled Get Connected in the Rain

Cynthia GrimesSo after getting Margaret's wonderful surprise call and her making my day, I reached out to Cynthia Grimes.  She too had commented on my post and in her wonderful comments to me had made a reference to some questions that she had.

Cynthia is fairly new to Active Rain and I would love if everyone would welcome her and visit her blog posts.  Cynthia was so sweet to talk to and we had a great conversation.  Hopefully I was able to answer all her questions.

So to Margaret & Cynthia thanks for making my day!

Good timing. I reached out and called someone the other day and by the end of the conversation, I really felt like they couldn't wait to get off the phone.
