Ringin' & Singin' with Sharon Paxson
Thanks to this months Ringing & Singing contest, I was able to catch up with a friend I hadn't spoken with in far too long - Sharon Paxson . Sharon has been a long time mainstay here in the rain, currently atop the Newport Beach, CA leaderboard by a wide margin, and she's also a soon to be ActiveRain millionaire! (ahem...stop by her blog and leave some love to get her to the 1M mark a little faster!)
Sharon is a Southern California native that is an expert sunrise-photo-taker - seriously, if you like great nature shots, find her on social media where you'll see the beautiful colors our local skies offer when the sun rises & sets above the water. Aside from taking some great photos, Sharon is an expert at taking care of 2 crazy but beautiful Irish Setter pups.
During our conversation we talked a lot about business and especially the internet marketing side of it. Sharon's website, Newport Beach Real Estate Cafe, has been in place for a long time and is a great source of business, and is an everchanging and always-in-need project, like all good websites are. That took us naturally to a discussion on the many changes that ActiveRain has seen in a relatively short time, most of which have turned out great, and some, not so much. We agreed on the importance of making changes though to keep up with the times and ensuring people are able to find us.
If you're looking to find someone in Newport Beach to represent buyers or sellers, Sharon is a great resource to have, but don't take my word for it. You can visit her profile here, and her blog is an excellent one to follow for the latest housing info on Newport Beach. Her website is also a great place to check in regularly for local events, housing data, and neighborhood-specific info.
