Kudos to Ricki Eichler McCallum - ActiveRain

"The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand,

and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have

applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand."


--- Vince Lombardi


Kudos to Ricki Eichler McCallum, member of ActiveRain, Texas Broker, and Published Author effective March 22, 2019! When I learned that Ricki from Corpus Christi who after 40 years of serving the people as a Texas Real Estate Broker in the Texas Hill Country and the  Coastal Bend area was retiring to Northern, Michigan, and that she was getting published, I just had to contact her and talk to her by phone. What I discovered is that Ricki is just as warm and friendly as most people know, native Texans are that way! 




I could hear it in her voice, how happy she was. Her dream came true! We talked about her book and I ordered a copy. On Friday, April 12th, I had a Broker meeting with my Board and we discussed ways to implement a continuing education class on the topic of, You Got Your Broker's License, Now What? Lucky for me, I received Ricki's new book, available by Amazon and took a copy with me for the meeting. I shared the contents of the book and all that were in attendance, heard me brag on about what Ricki has accomplished. In her book, she gives reverence to Brian Tracy and Pat Strong, a very well known strong Broker in Texas that just about every agent in Texas knows as the top Educator in the field of Real Estate. As a result of my meeting, I think Ricki can expect many new orders! I hope members of ActiveRain can support Ricki Eichler McCallum buy her book and spread the word to others who may be thinking about becoming a Broker. Also, you don't have to be licensed to appreciate the "step-by-step guide" she wrote which can apply to all who are interested in learning about the challenges of becoming a Broker. Whether you are a Broker in the business as long as Ricki, more or less, or a Real Estate Agent, when you are in this business, it is a BUSINESS and you are in the business to give back.

Hi Patricia Feager,   Thank you, thank you!  Such a nice post about my book and me.  You are so sweet to share this information with everyone.  I do hope the book helps many people.  I have always loved sharing with others and helping them grow.  To see others obtain success from something I might have shared is so rewarding.  Real estate is about helping others; our clients and our colleagues.  Thanks again to one of the best brokers out there!

Ricki Eichler McCallum - Straight from the heart!!! 

I am so proud to own the book. It's so interesting, written with honesty! You gave me a lot to think about and I can attest to the fact that the book will be very helpful to others. This is something everyone in the business needs to know! 

What I also like about you is your willingness to help others to succeed without puffing to make it sound like if you follow my recipe, you will get rich. Your down-to-earth conversational book is well work reading. I hope you get many sales and excellent reviews on Amazon too!

This post is eligible for a re-blog too!

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - Ricki Eichler McCallum is so personable and has spent 40 years of her life living and breathing the skills she has perfected over the many years of being a Broker. I applaud her and like yourself, I believe it is an inspiration to see someone within our peers here on ActiveRain succeed and achieve! Just think, without ActiveRain, the probability of getting to know Ricki would have been much slimmer.

I am also blessed to have gotten to know you and so many others because of AR.

Patricia I am sure that Ricki gained as much talking to you as you did talking to her.  I wish her a lot of luck with her move and her book.
