I love anything that brings out positive stories for all of us to read.  Lisa Von Domek is hosting a fun challenge for February where you can share with us some of your favorite "feel good" transactions.  

You can write up to 3 entries and don't forget, it's a short month so I'm off to get started!

Valentines With Love      It's February and Love is in the air!


This contest is all about a transaction that you loved to handle because it made you feel so good. This contest is not limited to Realtors...Home Stagers, Mortgage Professionals, Contractors; all AR members are encouraged to join in. Here are some prompts for posts: What was/were the best aspect(s) of the transaction? Did you help First Time Buyers find / finance / renovate the perfect home? Were you able to help find the light at the end of the tunnel for someone in extremely difficult circumstances? Were you working with Seniors or a Military Relocation with special requirements?

Since I am a positive person (!) I am positive that you have had more than one transaction that you loved, so you will be rewarded for each story that you share with 500 points each (limit 3...Kerrie's generous, but let's not get crazy!)

Contest begins February 1st and ends February 28th at 11:59pm Pacific Time.

Here are the rules:

1) Tell us what made the transaction so special to you - what did you LOVE about it? And tell it in 200 words or more.
2) Be as specific as you can without compromising confidentiality!
3) Share what you learned from the transaction and did it make you look at other     transactions differently?
4) Put your link (or links if you post 1, 2, or all 3 entries) in one comment in the comment section below

This is my first time hosting a contest, so I hope you enjoy this one and enter as I want to read all of your wonderful Love Stories here in the Rain!

Kathy this will be an easy contest, I have already written about at least three feel good loans I have done in the past.  So this is just a matter of finding those past blogs and making sure they conform to the rules of this contest.

Sounds like fun Kathy, it's good to catch these at the onset rather than cram at month's end.
