What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-March 3 to March 9, 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!

robert sicilianoMarch 6: Robert Siciliano 10 Tips to Not Ending Up a Dead Agent

Robert chose this title hoping that we would all sit up and take notice. It's not like we haven't been told this before but we need to keep this information top in our minds.

patricia feagerMarch 8: Patricia Feager Automated Smart Homes & What You Need to Know

In the past, a seller would leave the instructions for the appliances, etc and the garage door opener with the home but Patricia brings up an interesting topic, especially with so many smart homes now.

 

sheri sperryMarch 9: Sheri Sperry Making a Case for No Time Change

This is something I could get behind!!!! What about you?

 

 

 

 

And sadly, a post that needs to be highlighted is also a sad one for all of us. Susan Haughton, our ActiveRain family member, passed away on Friday. Many of us never have the opportunity to meet other members here yet we feel as if we know them via their posts and comments.

Susan was one such member for me. She was supportive and kind. You cannot ask for more than that.

I missed them all this week. This is my first year not having to do the time change but traveling I have had to do several time changes.  It is sad about Susan's passing. Life is short.

Kathy, I feel many of us are still dealing with the shock of Susan's passing. As much as I deal with death, that one hit me pretty hard.  I'm behind on reading this week.  Thank you for all that you do with your weekly post.

Hi Kathy:

I can't believe it's Tuesday night and I am just NOW getting to this. I really have some catching up to do, and it just might not happen.

Thanks for sharing about Susan Haughton. Such a surprise, and a tremendsou and sad loss for so many of us but what a wonderful contribution she made to AR, and to our world!

Jeff
