What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain  February 4 to February 10, 2018.


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!


mike cooperFebruary 4: Mike Cooper Be memorable and you'll always have agents waiting to work with you.

Let's face it, agents don't have to show your listings or make life easier for you and your clients. We'd like to think so but we're all human. Read Mike's list of words we should all learn to say.

I may just try all of these tips from Laura!! What do you think?

susan mangigianFebruary 7:  Susan Mangigian   What the Word Wednesday? Simplicity

I agree with Susan. While we want you to edit what you have don’t take away the things that make your home a home.


scott godzykScott Godzyk Where is the best place to find help for work needed around the home?

I'd not heard of this as a source but why not?! They're delivering for Whole Foods now and may start competing with UPS and Fed Ex!


jeffrey dimuriaFebruary 8: Jeffrey DiMuria The Awful New Truth in Real Estate, And You Need to Pay Attention.

As I'm not an agent, I haven't run into this but it certainly doesn't sound right to me. What do you think?
