"Reaching Out in the Rain!" - Building Our Community

By
Real Estate Agent with Fathom Realty West Sound WA State 52404

(For Your listeing pleasure while you read)

Okay, so in one of my recent posts, I gave everyone a homework assignment (and you thought you'd seen the last of homework!).

Well, today, I thought it would be fun to challenge everyone once again to "Bring Back the Love," and to "Reach Out in the Rain!"

What I'm asking you to do is to call two ActiveRain members by this Friday.

I want you to call one NEW member, maybe someone in your market area, city, county, or State, that has just recently joined, and welcome them personally to the Network.

Then call one of the OLDER veteran members, perhaps someone who has been silent or Missing-In-Action of late. Tell them their presence/voice has been missed, and kindly invite them to 'step' back into the Rain.

One of the true hallmarks of this community's amazing success has been our collective ability to develop and nuture meaningful relationships in the Rain.

So go ahead, make your calls. Leave a comment here about 'who' you talked to and how the converstions went. It will be fun to read the results....

.....and feel "The Power of Love!"....

Goodness are we focused right now. Have a doozie of a meeting tomorrow. One that means a haircut before. And maybe even a tie!

Will try to fit in a call or two, kind sir.

I'm afraid if the A|R member has caller ID ... and recognizes my number... they may pick up!

I'll do my homework, anyway.

but then there is pressure to get off the phone. I enjoy having as much time as I need with people and not feeling rushed :)

If the contest is who can get the most people to write a post about the call without asking them to, I am in :)

Hey Rich - Huey Lewis was one of my favorites.  I wrote a post about some memories of mine from the early 80's once that included two of his videos.  Thanks for the tune!

There is so much love and support on Active Rain it is unreal. I just got my real estate license last April and around September/October I was at a low point and very discouraged. I did a post call New Agent Blues, and within hours had about 25 posts of encouragement and support. One person even called me AT HOME! Then right around Thanksiving , Missy Caulk in Ann Arbor Mi blogged that she was trying to decide whether to switch companys because her office was about to go under( she did switch). She got almost 200 replys with advice and encouragement. Real estate is not the dog eat dog profession I had feared when I got into it. Or maybe only the best belong to Active Rain!

Rich- I call folks on the Rain all the time. I have made some great friends and I am blessed that I can pick up the phone and call a friend on the rain. I am late to your post, but I will still call as you suggested in your post. Katerina
