Real Estate Agent with Edward Surovell Realtors

Hello Everyone!

I joined the ActiveRain community to network with real estate professionals and people in other industries.  I got my real estate license last year and know that I still have a lot to learn.  I love learning new things and different viewpoints and I hope to read all of your blogs at some point.  I spend a lot of time reading books that have anything to do with real estate, so I would love recommendations!  I also hope to put some interesting things on here for you!

Welcome and have fun!  This is a truly incredible website.  I have been on other networking sites however this one seems to be so much fun and with the business we are in we need that every now and then.  Would like to help but like you I am only 2 days old here so maybe we can learn together.

Everyone here is so helpful so take advantage! I have

I think you will be amazed at the knowledge that you will find here in the rain. Don't wear a rain coat or use an umbrella, rather just come sit down and soak it in.

But, I'm glad to hear that you would also like to contribute and can't wait to read what you have to offer.

Welcome Elizabeth!  Kind of a hard time to get started in Real Estate, but you can do it!   Set a goal.   You might like to go to the tropics somewhere and if you set a goal to do it or to do something else, like buying a Porsche or something, write it down so you will be sure to think about it once in awhile. 

Here's something to think about!  Welcometo the Biz and Active Rain!  Jerry

Elizabeth, Welcome to AR.  It looks like you got some good recommended reading (and so did I).  There is so much to read here, you may not have much time to read a book.
