Respecting the Real Estate Community and the Active Rain Community

Real Estate Broker/Owner with TradeWinds Realty Group LLC 9054213B

Respect those who populate the ActiveRain Community!


In reviewing the guidelines of joining the ActiveRain Community they are very basic to our Real Estate Business on a daily basis.   I would highly encourage all to read especially when they begin their learning and sharing experience on ActiveRain.

An important aspect to the posting in ActiveRain as well as other advertisements and communications regarding real estate is to ensure that we do not violate the Fair Housing Laws.

Make sure that you do not discriminate against different groups of people by the wording of your ActiveRain blog or comments you make on other's blogs too.  It is of the utmost importance that we ensure that no one is insulted or harmed by the language or intent in our advertising.  Please refer to the federal FairHousing Laws and Guidelines for Advertising on an annual basis to refresh yourselves on which language may be deemed inappropriate in our writings and blogging.  You may see some words you use on a regular basis which you never intended to be insulting to others but unfortunately ignorance to the guidelines is not a legitimate reason for continuing to use this language or intent.

Another guideline which is adhered to in the ActiveRain Community is that the site is not to be used to ever slander another.  This Community of fellow Real Estate Professionals is geared to the "Golden Rule", so unto others as you would have do unto you".  Disrespecting or utilizing this valuable communication space to slander another Real Estate Professional or anyone for that matter will not be permitted by the ActiveRain monitors or the contributing members.  This is a great place for positive communications, feel free to give someone a recommendation or a congratulations.  If you have a Real Estate Professional who has provided you a good service experience let us all know.

ActiveRain does have rules and regulations, they are the route of a very positive experience for all of the Community.  I do hope you read the introduction, review the guidelines and adhere to them by sharing good, positive learning experiences for all of us to share!

Great post - sure, AR has "rules" but they aren't oppressive rules, just rules that make it a better place for everyone!

Somedays if we are all doing what we should we wouldnt even think we had rules but more what we expect of others and ourselves implied.   Happy New Year.

Rules are a guide to keep us in line, but you do have some people that just don't care and will do whatever they feel they can do. Those are the ones that break any and all rules. No discipline what so ever!  thanks for sharing!

I have found that most people here at AR are very respectful and it's always a pleasure to read their blogs and comments.  Maybe I have just been lucky, or maybe I have steered away from the negativity.

I am most pleased with all our interactions.  I do not think the negative people in general would take such a positive action to begin with of joining our ActiveRain Community.  Joining ActiveRain is one of the most positive actions I have taken to forward my career and I always encourage New Agents to join, the interaction is an education in itself.  Happy New Year.
