What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-December 30 to January 5, 2019

 

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 or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!

 

scott neashamDecember 30: Scott Neasham CAUTION Homebuyers: Loose Lips Sink Ships

All agents need to remind their clients that everyone has access to technology that can not only record their movements but also hear what they say!!!

 

ricki eichler mccallumRicki Eichler McCallum I'm the Best

I agree with Ricki! Let's celebrate what makes us different and recognize how well we can work together when we do.

 

fred griffin December 31: Fred Griffin Never Day "Goodbye." That Is too Final! Instead say, "See You Later."

Fred's posts have always been so informative and interesting. I agree about not saying "Goodbye" and love what his grandfather taught him. So Fred..."See you later."

 

chuck willmanChuck Willman A Little Help From Robert Frost

As big a fan of Robert Frost as I am, I did not know of this quote. Remember this the next time you're looking for a route other than the one that is the most direct.

 

john henryJanuary 1: John Henry Miracle Cure for High Blood PressureSometimes the answers we are looking for are right there in front of us. No miracle elixirs needed.

 

graziella brunerJanuary 2: Graziella Bruner Your Tongue-A Powerful Tool

This is a great positive post to help us begin the new year. No...we shouldn't have to be so cautious that we are afraid to speak, but take a breath and try to make sure that what comes out is has a more positive tone.

 

barbara todaroBarbara Todaro When the Market Changes, Everyone Needs a Savior. Have Yours Ready.

I've been reading various posts and news articles about a changing market (once again.) Will you be ready??? You can't change the change but you can change you and what you do!

 

 

mary grace ballew macdougallJanuary 3: Mary Grace (Ballew) MacDougall Who's That Realtor? It's Me!

Let's welcome Mary Grace to ActiveRain and pass on your tips for making ActiveRain work for her!!!

 

liz and bill spearJanuary 4:  Liz and Bill Spear    Oops, A Missed Connection Over an S!

I totally get it!!! Remember when you didn’t have to be so precise with snail mail???? Might want to make sure you’re not missing anything!

 

scott godzykJanuary 5: Scott Godzyk IS this economy or politics affecting Real Estate?

You know that you're going to be asked this so Scott offers a good response!

 

jan and steve bachmanJan and Steve Bachman Virtual staging in Listings. We like it!

I know exactly how expensive vacant home staging can be! And technology has come a long way since I started in the home staging business. When done well, you can help sell your listing and do it in a cost-effective manner.






Don’t forget to check out Carol Williams  Second Chance Saturday posts as well.  I always find a post or two that I missed.

Oh my gosh, you found some golden nuggets that I hadn't seen and a couple, I just discovered this morning, Kathy! LOL

I always feel like I'm in a perpetual state of 'catch-up' here in the Rain - there are SO many wonderful writers here and so much to learn!

Thank you for sharing your picks again this week - as always, you're more appreciated here than you'll ever know.

My comment on Fred's blog

 

''  Please know that even on a Leave of Absence, my phone, email, and text will be on for you. And I think most of the other members feel the same way. You don't get over 2 million points without touching a lot of others. You are an important part of the Rain and we are wishing you the very best!  See you later Fred Griffin presently on Leave of Absence
