Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.


"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   


Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD 
Yes, getting better every day.  I think I'm to the point now where my residual pain is because I haven't been doing much and I need to stretch more and become more active without doing TOO much.  Walking a fine line there.

Hi Leanne Smith 
Most people don't realize how many "strands" there are in a real estate transaction and how they're entwined, do they?  Thanks for the post. And, thanks for stopping by to check out the other selections from last week.
