Welcome to Our New BananaTude Mods!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Phoenix Property Shoppe AZ Broker BR030809000


Welcome to the BananaTude Group of 2018! We've made some changes over the holidays and we're off to another great TUDE year!  First of all I want to thank  all the previous moderators for giving their time and service for so many years - Belinda Spillman, Dick Greenberg, Gene Mundt and Bob Crane. You guys went above and beyond the call of duty more times than I can count and you're like family to all of us! And please don't be a stranger! Come and play in the  BananaTude group as often as possible!


Welcome to the New BananaTude Moderators! Beth Atalay, Carol Williams, Debb Janes, Hannah Williams and Patricia Feager. Also continuing on are Kathy Streib, Susan Haughton and of course Anna Banana.  BananaTude is a very busy and productive group for real estate professionals and we need a lot of mods to keep this Tude Cruise Riding High!


BananaTude Group Rules!






No Politics

No Listings


No Open Houses


No Shameless Self Promotion!


 And No Whining!




Market Reports Encouraged!

Original Content Only!


Karma Means Something in OUR group!


ONE POST ONLY PER BLOG ROLL PAGE! Why? Because we want to give everyone a chance to be seen and read and not have the blog roll filled up by just a few folks. 


Your post will be deleted by a moderator if the rules and guidelines aren't followed. If you have a concern as to why a post is deleted contact Anna Banana directly.


Bring your Tude to the BananaTude Group in 2018! 



Wow! After writing 2018 again I thought, holy smokes,  the BananaTude Group has been around and going strong since 9/9/09. That speaks highly about the groups members (YOU) and the level of professionalism YOU bring to the group each and every day. GO TUDES!

Out with the old and in with the new!  I like a lot of the mods, so I guess I should start sharing my market reports to the group.  I guess I always thought they wouldn't be allowed, but it might be a good thing for me to start doing!

I'm glad I came back, as I forgot to say welcome the other new Mod folks, and thank Susan and Kathy who have been at it for quite some time. Also, I sure appreciate all of the folks before us who made sure BananaTude remained the most popular group in the Rain.
