What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-September 15 to September 21, 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! 


nina hollanderSeptember 15:  Nina Hollander   6 Marketing Lessons Learned from Donald Trump’s Campaign for Realtors

If you read Barbara Todaro’s post from last week you’ll see how one post generates another and how we all encourage others to share their posts. This one is again...non-political...so read it and look at the lessons that Nina shares. 


john meussnerSeptember 16: John Meussner How to Answer the Tough Questions.

Very thorough and informative post. And, John offers facts with his observations.


joan coxSeptember 17: Joan Cox ActiveRain Meet-Ups

We used to have "formal" meetups but you don't have to wait for that. Create your own. This is what is so good about this community.


nick vandekarNick Vandekar Attitude matters

We're happy to have Nick back. Love that he as shared a part of himself with us!!! And yes, attitude does matter!


scott godzykSeptember 18: Scott Godzyk WHY is Mrs. Buyer Broker peeking in the window.

Scott gets some very interesting sellers and buyers. This one falls in the What were they thinking category.


sally and david hansonSeptember 19: Sally K and David L. Hanson Make Listing a TEAM Effort...Everybody WINS!

When you think about it, even if you're a one-person brokerage, you still need a team to help you in whatever you do.


amanda sue briggsSeptember 20: Amanda Sue Briggs New tech startup makes it easy to earn 35% referral fees.

Don't shoot the messenger! It is an interesting concept and would love to see others chime in. Also welcome Amand to ActiveRain.


alan maySeptember 21: Alan May Then Why Don't You Just SAY That?

I couldn't agree more. It took me a while to understand what it meant and I was confused!!





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