Colors in the Rain. By: Maria Sapio, Realtor® Carlisle, PA.

  • "The ActiveRain community and real estate industry as a whole will only be respected to the degree of character represented by the actions of its professionals. Do not conduct yourself in a way that disgraces your fellow members on this network." - Active Rain Community Guidelines

    Can you imagine a world without the many hues of color?

    Inspiration is often found in colors that surround us...The vibrancy of a majestic red cardinal, or the breathtaking bold blue sky, or the exuberance of a bright orange peel of a clementine.

    Color has a way of waking us up and inviting us into the festivities of being alive.

    To me, one of my favorite aspects of the Active Rain community is the wonder and awe of enjoying the many stories, perspectives, and marketing concepts that are presented by the many members - like a ray of sunshine upon the many colors of the rainbow.  

    Each person sees life a bit differently - and as we each share our ideas, we each have the grand opportunity to splash our vibrant color upon the canvas in the Rain and be celebrated for our uniqueness.

    So, let your voice be heard - and let us each enjoy the work in progress of the beautiful canvas, we tenderly call 'The Rain.'

Hi Maria Sapio ,

Congratulations on your well deserved feature.  You use a great analogy with beautiful and colorful images to compliment our ActiveRain community. I couldn't agree more!  Thank you.

Warm and heartfelt pronouncement Maria.  As long as the colors are distinct, I think there is beauty.  This is just my observation having occasionally a palette of paint on hand.  Colors get muddy when they run into each other...

What a wonderful post, Maria Sapio! While there are 7 primary colors in a rainbow, there are thousands of hues in between...sort of like the Rain! Thanks for the thought-provoking post. :-)

Hi, Maria Sapio

Yes, we are a community. Our while we may share other mutual characteristics, our unifying “color” is real estate. That is why I am here. I enjoy the experiences and opinions of agents near and far. From the experiences of others, I learn and grow.

Hi Maria:

I read this not long after it was featured by carol, but came back to reread it, and found it as refreshing, and poingnant, as it was before. Such a powerful message, not only about AR but about our world as well.

Maria, you are articulated your point beautifully. I joined Active Rain in 2014, but just recently became an active user. I am delighted to say I  have been received graciously. I especially appreciate the myriad of perspectives I receive when I pose questions in the forum.
