What does it MEAN that Lowly Property Manager is #1?

Property Manager with Gibson Management Group, Ltd.


At first I thought my MY HOME sidebar was WRONG as it showed that I was   
#1  in Charlottesville and #1 in Albemarle county and #6 in Virginia...YEOW!
For a lowly property manager, I'm pretty pleased to have been on
The Rain aslong as I have and kept it up.....sure, there have been
   some "down times" when my husband had health problems and I had to
   micro-manage a total kitchen renovation * which is not finished and still needs
   to be painted and the ceramictile sitting on the pallet in my drive put down in it
   and my office/dog porch * and NOW I am back, ready to dispense property
   management and real estate wisdom...... 
As Wikipedia describes the term...A maven (also mavin) is a trusted
    expert in a  particular field, who seeks to pass knowledge on to others. The word
    maven comes from Hebrew, meaning "one who understands", based on
    an accumulation of knowledge.[1]

I am very surprised I could overtake Charles McD....maybe his starting a new real estate firm slowed him down!

It just shows that being consistent, like the turtle, always wins out.

It wasn't a lowly turtle, and you're not a lowly property manager.

Well, I know from experience the good rankings on ActiveRain are earned only through hard work.

Lenn * I don't think that many AR members realize their ranking in their area and state....
