"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore.  I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed.  That's what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  Be sure to tag me in any posts you read that you'd like to see in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Good morning Ron and Alexandra Seigel ,
Thank you for the post.  Standing out and specializing is a big of plus in the real estate business.  Even when I was actively selling, I would often refer business to a specialist when I didn't feel competent to serve a specific segment of buyer.  Equestrian property buyers were an example.  We had one gal in the market who was THE condo specialist.  Buyers are always looking for the person who can best serve their needs. 

Happy Sunday!

There are always lots of great posts that get missed each week.  I'm sure SCS only makes a small dent... but every little bit helps, right?  Always appreciate member suggestions.

Hi Carol

Well, I am just getting to this now, and given my schedule today it looks like I won't be reading much. I missed some of these and look foward to reading later tonight.

Enjoy your day!
