Ask An Ambassador: Help Is A Click Or Call Away

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 www.LizTour.com SAL.2002007747

One of the absolute best things about this community is the willingness to share and to help others.

Over time you get to know people and we share the best and worst of times, both business and personal.

We learn from each other, sharing ideas that we'd probably never think of letting a local competitor hear.

We're exposed to techniques from across the country that we can adapt to our local market.

You can draw on this community in times both routine and extreme. 

I've tapped friends from coast to coast including a very trying situation fall 2015 (you know who you are!) when I needed expertise that I didn't have to help my family.  The help was freely offered, and that kind of help is not something I'd expect anywhere else but from friends I've made in the Rain.

And the favors go both ways.  It's a pay it forward community.  I know what I know because others have taught me or I've figured things out. 

I've helped Rainers between showing appointments, sitting in my driveway, standing outside while waiting for a closing to start, from early morning to late in the evening, it's part of what I enjoy doing to help this community thrive.

Helping isn't an Ambassador thing, but a Rainer thing.  We all help, with or without the badge designation.

Got a question?  Need help?  Just ask.  Someone will do their best to give you what you seek!

 

Until next Tuesday, just Ask An Ambassador if you need help!

Bill and Liz, this is one of the reasons why ActiveRain is much different than similar platforms. Help is freely given amongst friends in the rain.

BLiz- you are right about that!  The members here are quick to help a fellow member and offer support as well. That's a huge difference between this platform and others.

Beth, The only place I've found similar support is in FB groups composed of other ActiveRain members!

Kathy, No hesitation at all, if someone needs help, people offer.

Liz and Bill Spear - it is always paying it forward, especially when it comes to ActiveRain! 

And yes, you deserve that orange badge! (How many members share their points with others?)

Hi Bliz

Well you nailed it with this one. The community has always been that way, I think. I think it's one of the main reasons people like being here and participating - it's a way to get help, but also to offer with, nothing expected in return (OK you get some points).

AB, It's great knowing help is out there when we need it.

Harry, It's working fo rus.

Joan, It's something we realized early on, and the community is good at maintaining that culture.

Praful, Love to see how this community helps each other.

Debbie, Definitely have enjoyed the benefit of receiving help and giving help.

Debe, Thanks!  I want this community to thrive and it's one way I can help.

Gabe, And there are certainly some topics that have some true experts we can rely on.

Jeff, And more or less, the community is self-policing.  Those that don't get the culture and want to continually cause trouble tend not to stick around.  It's only been in extreme cases that I've seen Staff have to show them the exit.

Alison, That they are :)

Marte, The fact that this community works so well together as a whole, really makes those that haven't grasped the culture that more obvious. Fortunately that number of those that don't "get it" is pretty small.
