Bowing To The Queen.... 

For Real Estate Rocket Science

And Things More Common

 

Bowing To The Queen For Real Estate Rocket Science And Other Things More Common Although I do know a rocket scientist in real life this is not a story of a real estate transaction with any form of rocketry involved.  The referenced scientist was a seller of a home I had the honor of  representing.   However the occurrence of finding rocket scientists is actually pretty rare.  Even in Pasadena where the city is home to Caltech California Institute of Technology and its nearby companion of smart thinking and lofty experiences JPL Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  

 

I digress....believe me this is not a discussion on science or any related fields but something  quite down to earth.  Very real.  While scientific theories and discoveries have brought us many everyday benefits, we can also look to common sense when it comes to day-to-day learning, enjoyment and satisfaction in life. 

 

When it comes to showing/sharing common sense in the practice of real estate we don't have to look far to see that there is no shortage of expertise on ActiveRain.  There is certainly one person who stands out in this field of professionals in my opinion.  It's not just lip service, it's reality.  Along with realty and all other things real, she serves a healthy menu of advice and common sense. 

 

Of course, I am speaking of Barbara Todaro.  That's not to say I agree with her each and every time(I can't begin to fathom boiled chicken mind you) but common sense seems to be a regular item on her menu.  A recent post from Barbara had me thinking and soon thereafter this post came to be.  

 

She shares.  She explains. She tell us, like it is. That's my thought. It's real.  It's reality and it's real estate and it's realty.  The eye buys... For the moment.  And a lot longer.

Hi Michael,
What a wonderful post. Barbara Todaro is certainly our Queen of Marketing advice in The Rain.  It is because of people like her and so many others that generously share their knowledge and experience with the membership that we need to keep the ActiveRain platform viable.  I think I'll write a post about THAT. 

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

That's a great topic.... one of the wonderful benefits of this platform is sharing.... I've learned so many things about online marketing, and they are all from AR....one good turn deserves another....when one learns something, it's a nice gesture to share something others may not know..... Carol Williams

Carla Freund - including and beyond real estate.

Carol WilliamsBarbara Todaro is a stand out on this platform but she is not alone as there are many who contribute to the success of AR.  Isn't it great when posts and/or comments inspire additional posts - I know it happens to me - often.  I look forward to seeing and reading your post.

Good morning Michael Jacobs ,

I love this post about Barbara Todaro. I've learned so much from her as many others have. She is always sharing, explaining the why and makes so much sense. Barbara always tells it like it is and its so easy to understand the reality of real estate through her eyes!

Hahaha. We are currently watching The Crown, so I had Queen Elizabeth on my mind. I am delighted to learn we're talking about The Queen, Barbara Todaro. She is amazing. Recently when Ron and Alexandra were here for a visit we discussed the challenges of real estate today. Ron said, "I'd market in the exact manner of Barbara Todaro. She's got it down."  That she does.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - there's no missing signs of royalty these days whether it be on the "telly" - on ActiveRain or in real life.  

Barbara Todaro - AR membership brings so many benefits.  The knowledge that is available to us through the posts and the insights of others here is beyond abundant.
