I Know Something You Don’t Know (do you sing it with an attitude!)

Managing Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX Executive Realty 104763


You actually do not know anything that others do not know. What you do know is how to do something YOUR WAY. I do marketing MY way, but I like doing almost everything MY way!

The blogging topics on any site, especially ActiveRain, are not unique topic. They are not secrets. They are not confidential information. What they are is a variety of topics that everyone is familiar with, but they are described differently. Every agent is unique. Every method of marketing can be found online but with a variety of approaches.

This blog post was inspired by a comment made on one of my posts this morning. The agent basically stated that he never shares because he doesn’t have any information that has not already been previously stated by others. After reading that I responded with the fact that everyone has a different style with different thoughts for every real estate topic that’s ever been shared.

We share because there may be others who respond that will share one of their thoughts on a topic. We can always improve our methods by complementing what we have with something another might do.

Those who do not write blog posts because they do not have a new topic would be wise to jump in and join the group of bloggers who do the same thing but have their own personal touch.

If you’re in the business and you make money, you’re doing something right. Share what you do by writing a blog post. The comments you receive might be just enough for a modification and improvement for what you’re doing, and you’ll become a blogger who consistently participates.

Just a thought for the moment….let’s hope too many of these don’t surface today!!!

Hi Barbara,
This is SO true and such an interesting subject.  When you think about it, there are really only about 20 master plot themes for ALL fiction writing.  Yet, there are millions of published novel, each unique.   Whether fiction or non-fiction, regardless of the subject matter, everyone has a unique spin and perspective to put on any given subject.  This is proven over and over through our ActiveRain Challenges.  We all participate in the same challenge and they come out so different.  Thanks for the post, Barbara.

Exactly. Well put, Barbara. There is always another perspective, and that's what keeps life so darned interesting - in or out of the Rain.

Don't know how I missed this blog, Barbara, as I caught it over on Kathy Streib this week.

I think we all have our own way of doing things, stuff that works for us, and sharing is part of that component. None of us got to where we are today all by ourselves. Many people helped us along the way and pay back is a natural circle of life.

Good afternoon Barbara - doing it your way with attitude is the best way.  Frank Sinatra would be proud.  I am sure that this post has inspired others to take your lead.

Ah yes, Barbara, I feel that way even today. But like you stated, everyone has a different way explaining or writing about a topic... we should just jump right in and just write.

You are exactly correct Barbara!! I was listening to Les Brown this morning thinking how great his information is, but much of it is made up of content which I think, but he says it a lot better than me, lol. Nonetheless, I am going to continue to work on my inner-Les Brown!! Thank you for the reminder!!

I agree - we each have our own way of doing things / looking at things.

One of the things I love on Active Rain is that the comments are a form of brainstorming - sometimes many more thoughts and ideas come out.

I have learned so much by other peoples comments on things I say. For example, I might write about how buyers should prepare to purchase. LOTS of people write about that. But I will write my own flavor of buyer preparation. The amazing thing is how much I then learn when people add THEIR own flavor to mine.

Good point!

So true...nothing I share regarding staging is very unique. LOL

We have to keep in mind that we are sharing our thoughts and our perception on the topic...that is what is important!

I don't think anything I share is unique but I do have my own way of doing things, right or wrong. And I enjoy sharing my perspective and thoughts, just as I enjoy reading others'.

Your title made me want to go "Na Na Na Na Na" ... Barbara Todaro ...

But I really like the message!  I'm not one to brag (much).  Never been my style ... but I think I DO know some things that others in my biz don't.  I try to shape my  marketing to highlight that ...

You're one smart cookie!
