This is my second post but writing it before the first one.

Jeff Dowler has a contest going this month to write about the past decade relating to our business and personal life.

 

 

What a Difference a Decade Makes

A Challenge for You in July!

 

Ten Years

 

So I did this a bit backward. You see I talked about the last ten years on my Sunday radio show before I posted the first blog for the contest. There is still one more day left before the end of the month. And I am still working on the first one.

 

So on my live radio show, I talked about leaving the big-box company and starting an auction company for REALTORS®  It was a great idea but not for me.  I did learn some good lessons...like how to get to the seller's bottom line.

 

I shared that HomeRome Realty was started in 2009, how my book had just been published and during this same time, I began hosting ALL ABOUT REAL ESTATE.

While talking about my latest closing, one of my favorite houses, which I listed and sold in 2011, I relisted and sold it again last week. I loved the previous owners, the present owners and I am pretty sure we found the perfect family for this special home again.

I spoke about taking the MCNE Master Certification Negotiation Expert and how important education continues to be to keep up with real estate. 

\Blogging has been a major part of my real estate life for more than 10 years, actually its been thirteen years and I have continued to speak to an AR member each day.

So this is how I used the post for the contest but I did it The Rome Way. Yes, I shared the past decade on last Sunday's radio show before I entered into Jeff Dowler, CRS contest. I still have one more day to finish up the first post. Thanks, Jeff for sponsoring the contest. And thanks for letting me do it The Rome Way.

Debe Maxwell, CRS You gave me the idea when you commented on posting your first entry.  With one day left, it was easier to post the second one first. Thanks.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - What an interesting post, and of course, the best way to do anything is the Rome way!

We all know Rome wasn't built in a day and you just keep building and rebuilding. That's what I love about you. And I agree with Barbara Todaro - you walk the talk and talk the walk with comfort and ease. You're always adding more dimensions and deleting anything obsolete or in need of renovations. You are unique and wonderful!
