Last Week's Favorites on Active Rain: June 30th-July 6th

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

There were lots of great posts this week on Active Rain, and here are my ten favorites:

Debbie Gardner: My 3 year anniversary on Active Rain  Debbie does a great job of educating us, and the public, about floors.  When I met her at a Rain Camp, she taught me to look down!

Bob Crane:  FAQ How do you Measure and Appraise these Large Forests so Quickly?  I never even thought about this before Active Rain!  Fascinating!

Andrea Swiedler:  Staying cool without AC in Southern Litchfield County  This is news we can all use, even if we're not in Litchfield County.

Jennifer Prestwich:  You Can Contest an Appraisal - And WIN, Part 2  And don't forget to read Part 1, too.  Good work, Jennifer!

Michael A. Caruso:  Keep flies away, with this one simple trick. Bag filled with water...  Something important I learned this week!

Chris Ann ClelandIt's Not About YOU, It's About Your CLIENTS  Before you leave for the beach, this is a must read.

Anna 'Banana' Kruchten:  Not so Wordless Wednesday! What would you do for fun  This is a just for fun read! 

Brad MacKenzie:  The Constitution - My father's New York Times editorial from 1987  There were some great 4th of July posts, and this is my favorite.

Gary Woltal:  The Unpredictable Is Built Into A Real Estate Transaction   Now, I have to have one of these mugs!

Richard Weisser:  The problem with real estate reality TV shows is the lack of reality!  OK, I got a little addicted whilemy knees healed. 

So this is going to be a really busy day.  In the meantime, have a wonderful week and blog on!

Hi Pat, now I have some reading to catch up on! Thanks for including my stay cool post. I was babysitting at my daughters when I wrote it and she has NO AC. Well, she has it in the boys bedroom and keeping them up there all day was NOT an option.
