Last Week's Favorites on Active Rain: November 4th-10th

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

Well, this has sure been an interesting week!  The election is over (what a relief!) and things seem to be getting back to normal here in DC, where many agents are disappointed that there will not be a change in administration that will bring in bunches of new buyers.  Oh well!  So now that the week is done, here is the list:

Lori Fischer: Save Some Dinero with These Staging Tips  Great tips on getting the most our of your staging investment.

Mike Cooper: When I'm in charge we'll do elections like this . . .  I do think that Mike is onto something!

Tim Denbo: Do Pictures Sell Houses?  I think we all need constant reminding:  Pictures certainly do!

Kristine Ginsberg:  Firing my Assistant: Not an Easy Job!  Ah, the saga of Thelma!  I think she's flirting with Kristine's husband!  Bad Thelma!

Norma Toering: Holidays and House Hunting Are More Compatible Than You Think  Now here is a timely post!

Dale Baker:  Hunter's Breakfast Event to be held in Perkinsville Vermont  Wow!  Check out that maple syrup.  Gotta be the real thing!

Chris Ann Cleland: Don't Let the Downfalls Derail You, No Matter What You Are Doing  A nice Sunday Morning inspiration!

Gwen Banta: "Only smell dogs" - Sniffing Out Bloopers On The MLS  This'll make you run proof your MLS posts.  This was Willie the Labradoodle's choice.

Mitchell Hall: Speechless Sunday | Veteran's Day 2012 | NYC  Oh, Mitch!  The sun will shine again on New York! 

Alan May: If you don't vote, you've got a full four years ahead of you of "quitcherbellyachin"  Here is a sentiment that is difficult to argue with.

OK, gotta run off to my Open House!  Have a great Sunday, and I'll see you back here in a week.
