What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain-January 22- January 28, 2017.


I learn something new every day at ActiveRain!  With this series, I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment.  It could be something techie, something about Real Estate, about a place or person!  Or it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!

We’re accustomed to learning about correct grammar from Marte but this one is very important.

Yes, you’ve heard about not taking overpriced listings but Mike offers another good reason not to.

I have to admit to not knowing the difference. Do you??
