Well, I have been a part of this great community for probably 2 months now and have learned and received more information in that time frame than in the 4 years I was in real estate prior. SO. A Great Big Thank You to all of you!!!! Because of all the reading I have been doing I have encountered several surprising factors.
First is that there is no other community like this anywhere.....As always, if I am wrong please tell me. I have been on-line at other real estate communities and I am always pleased to come back home b/c of the positive attitude here. I have seen some pretty serious Realtor Bashing going on about this market and our desire to take advantage of it and I have found myself having to walk or should I say click myself away b/c of the frustration I was feeling towards the topic or the train of thought the writer was trying to imply.
Secondly, I am amazed that everyone is so helpful with giving information. I believe that when you feel as if you are lacking for something give it away and it will come back to you. I believe this site is the best example of that. When the year started for me I had concerns and questions about my career and where and how to budget for what could be a difficult year and I have received so much advise and wisdom from you all. I feel blessed. I also feel that I have gone full circle with that notion in my personal and professional life as well. I find myself wanting to seek out opportunities to help and educate others with what little I have to offer, even if the benefits are not short term...
Lastly, I have made some profound discoveries about technology and what a person can do with it. Don't get me wrong I have an extremely far road yet to travel, but it is not so scary anymore.. thanks to you all.
Exhibit A is below.... 2 months ago I would not have known how to find or how to download or how to stick this baby in my blog Yippee!!!!
