Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain, Community Manager

Good afternoon my lovely Rainers, my angels!  Today is national Wear Red Day and anyone that posts a picture of themselves on our Facebook page today gets 500 AR points.  Rebecca Gaujot inspired the extra push on points and all your beautiful faces showing up on our page is bringing a smile to our hearts.

Another smiling heart moment is finding your quotes and features this week.  Check out a few of the highlights we ran across.

To the Moon Alice
The Toronto Sun had an article about 7 Bizarre Houses and #2 was Angie Vandenbergh's spaceship house post. An interesting piece indeed!

James Quarello's expertise on frost-free faucets was noted by the author of an article on James' post was written in 2012 and continues to be beneficial today.  Especially today, man it is cold out!!

Inman Love
They're loving what you're writing and posting it for their followers to see, how exciting!  This week Inman shared two Rainers.  Sheila Cox wrote a post about neighborhood expertise and what really ruffles her feathers. Valorie Ford shared her 8 tips for taking great pictures.

Bubbling Over
Sharon Parisi has been featured again and again on the Preston Hollow BubbleLife.  Her latest post, Lakewood Trails Neighborhood Market Report is perfect for those looking at moving to the area.  


Keep writing that quality content, AR is pushing many of your posts to our social media outlets and other editorial sites hoping to get you extra exposure!  Have a beautiful weekend!
