First Time Blogger Here....

Real Estate Agent with Allen Tate 250405

I have been a member of ActiveRain for a year now, and this is my first blog post. I have been meaning to blog for a long time, better late than never I guess.

Here's a little about me. I have been in real estate since late 2006. I worked as a Buyer Agent for one year and have decided that 2008 will be about building a business for myself. I am very excited about this opportunity and some days I am surprised by my motivation. I have been working very hard so far and I am sure that it will pay off.

I live in Harrisburg, NC. I am part of Re/Max Signature Properties in Concord, NC. My areas of expertise are Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties in NC.

Hopefully in the future my blogs will be more interesting. For now, I am glad to get the first one under my belt.

Have a great day!

WELCOME TO AR!  I'm sure you will see that by blogging you can greatly increase your business and I encourage you to stick with it.  Make it a personal goal to read and comment on at least 10 peoples posts per day.  You will be surprised at how much information you learn from them and how many of them will then read your posts and comment on them too!
