Thank You AR Cheerleaders ....A Great Pat on the Back, Head...Yaah !

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

 In the world of real estate and self employment you don't always find managers, clients and customers who sing your Praisespraises...give you an occasional pat on the Back...head...we all like to be told we have done a good job...gone the extra mile...marketed well....found the perfect house that the buyers would call for a lifetime. It's what we do...and accept as part of the industry you love...the energy you give to people who have hired your services.   

   When you post a listing in Active can be a teeny tiny condo ....or a sprawling McMansion....and the professionals you have had the honor and pleasure of meeting from California to Rhode Island will provide that extra special something....that "love pat" we welcome for having done what we love doing every day.  Return the Virtual Hugpraise...comment on their posts...give them the virtual hug that they deserve for being the professionals they are..and the friends they have become.

     Have a wonderful weekend...Prosper at your open house...take that listing...a new loan application....get that offer accepted....tell us about it in the Rain...we promise to reward you with our REAL praise...and the hug you can only get in the Rain....that not only "keeps you dry" makes you feel warm ALL Over.....

          Hansons Both

Cheer goes a long way and putting positive thoughts out there for fellow agents takes little time and effort. Good stuff Sally and David!

I love this community...and this post!  And, also the signature, "Hansons Both!" 

You're so right and it does take so very little to reach out and give those pats on the heads and backs too - you oftentimes have no idea how much someone is in need of them either!

Happy Tuesday, Hansons Both!

You speak to the biggest surprise regarding AR membership for me personally, Sally K. & David L. Hanson ... I was NOT expecting to find a "community" or "family" in its truest sense here when I joined.  Yet it's true that it exists ... thankfully ...

Dear Sally & David,

That is so sweet. Yes, positive feedback from your peers in an otherwise lousy or stressful day is always appreciated.

The virtual hugs that I like are the reviews on Zillow.  People really have nothing to gain so I know that they are real.

On ActiveRain, sure there are real hugs. But most members are playing the networking game.  They are looking for future referrals or looking to get other members to come and comment on their blog.  The underlying motive is getting business or getting you to reciprocate.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.  I guess there's a place for cheerleaders who say nice things no matter what, but don't get fooled about what's real.  The reality is what your actual clients thought of you.  Focusing on that will probably get you much further than an echo chamber of fellow agents.

I need a virtual hug right now! I've got a McMansion with five bedrooms that has been on the market for almost 60 days without any showings. We had it appraised before listing it, so price was supposed to be dead on. I'm at a loss what to do, other than lower the price -:(

Hi Sally & David - there is no other forum that you can get support from like AR. Most of us are in the real estate industry and understand what each goes through. We learn from each other and support each other. It simply doesn't get better than that!
