R YOUR UNDERPANTS BIG ENOUGH - UNITED WE STAND

don't want to hear it." ---Avigdor Lieberman

 

 

ARE YOUR UNDERPANTS BIG ENOUGH?

It takes courage to wear big panties and step outside of the norm to do something BIG! BOLD! BODATIOUS! This is a shout out to the people who started ActiveRain, to the members who joined and remained members of ActiveRain, and to the big, bold, and bodatious stories posted on the vast selctions of blog posts held together, united on ActiveRain.  

 

Before joining AR, there wasn't anything like this platform. I'm sure I'm not the only one who was trained and learned from my Broker and local entities that taught mandatory and continuing education. It wasn't until I joined AR in the fall of 2010, that I began to realize the broader scope of the niches of real estate, the possibilities of learning something new and different, and to stick my neck out to learn about what was going on in other areas of the United States from people, like myself, who are in this profession.

 

UNITED WE STAND

Thanks, ActiveRain! Thanks, Members of ActiveRain! When you think about it, we have put together a collection of viable stories and reported the news in our market places with growing frequency. Through the ups and downs of what it's like in our personal market place we have stayed in place, sheltered behind our own computer devices, and on the run, reporting the news and sharing stories that are unique. Many have bared their souls in sorrowful life events, personal to them. United, we wept. Others have shared their joyful events both in business and personal stories. We celebrated success, milestones, birth, graduations, promotions, awards, adoptions, and other life events that brought tears of joy and happiness. 

 

Our collection of personal stories read like a memoir, a history of the people within our communities and the stories about our industry. We reported the news, great ideas, tips, the processes of how things get done during both slow times and multiple offers. There were questions, answers, opinions and lots of pondering. Throughout it all, there has been stories of inspiration, education, meditation, hope, humor, and the determination about how to succeed or tolerate and get through problematic or unusual circumstances. 

 

Never, in our history has the alarm gone off about the importance of how to survive and stay connected because of COVID-19. It has reached every corner of the world.  We need ActiveRain. We need to continue to share the fabric of our souls and share what's going on in our areas where we live. ActiveRain has no borders. We can exercise free speech as long as we follow ethics and truth.

I started my blogging with the Real Estate Tomato in 2007 and met the weirdos of AR at Inman. Being a weirdo myself I knew I found a home.

 Joe Pryor - Your first two sentences grabbed my attention! It would be a good hook to keep people reading more about how your life experience changed as a result of blogging and your introduction to the weirdos who changed your life for the better to where you are now! A man that is daring seizes opportunities when they are staring at something great in the face and doesn't quit learning. I get the feeling, when you know something is good, nothing will hold you back. Joe - you are an inspiration!

Roy Kelley - One of the last things I did before we got the stay home orders was to visit the Library and I picked up books. I received notice, the Library is closed and the drop off box won't be open either. So, I have them for an extended time period. Plus, I have used one of my bedrooms for a library and it's fully stocked with books, new, used, educational books, and books I could never part with. Yes! I am reading!

You should blog about the books you recommend. Several of the ActiveRain members have commented that they are reading novels after reading my posts.

Well well where do I start.......I started in AR and then did nothing until 2008 when it finally suck in what it had to offer.  And....I had no idea way back when how many members would become friends.......and there are far to many I can't even count them all.  They truly are the reason I'm still here in the rain. As for getting through what's happening? Of course we will. We are Americans and we always do. In fact I do believe it's going to come back together stronger than ever before.  I do.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP starting back in 2006, AR has been way more than a real estate platform.

Friendships, support, experience, encouragement, knowledge, sharing, kindness, laughter, tears, and so much more...that's THE RAIN over the past fourteen years.

I love this place and what a wonderful way to share how many of us feel about it too, Patricia.

One word sums this up on many levels - TRUTH! 

Thank you for being such a wonderful friend here in the Rain. There's more to this platform than real estate...and that's what keeps me here!

I got here in 2008 and I will say that on the pages here in ActiveRain I learned more about adapting my business to a changing market that any other place of learning I've ever been.  When the market shifts a collective of brokers and agents are here figuring out the best way to navigate the new waters.

Tammy Lankford, you make a great Spokesperson! I was already deep into short sales and foreclosures when I started. It was refreshing to read the stories written by those that came before me. There were times I felt like I received a hand of friendship, guidance, caring people from places, I didn't know. As we begin to figure things out and navigate through these new and unsteady waves of the future, we need to stick together and swim with the currents. I always appreciate your level head.

I haven't been here "much" lately, partly because I've been SO busy. But back in 2008 I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands and found this place and learned SO much that has helped me get back and stay busy.  I suspect I'm going to have a little more time on my hands before this ends as well.

Tammy Lankford, busy is good! Time to spare enjoying camaraderie is extra nice and mutually appreciated too! I do believe we come into each others lives when it matters the most, and it always matters to someone, even if  you don't know it. People need people! We need you!!!

Well, you my friend, are BIG, BOLD, AND BODACIOUS to mention one's undergarments in your post! LOL Something I would never do (except when replying to a post that referenced the same). You are a beautiful writer, and I know what you mean when you refer to our earlier posts and how embarrassing they can be. I have deleted a few of my own from the early years.

Hi Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty - I'm glad to know you have such a great sense of humor! Sometimes, you just have to get other people's attention and make it good writing or else... 

A professional, published author I am not. However, practicing frequently here on ActiveRain sure helps. Also, reading what other people write and how they comment is helpful too. It's interesting how many posts have been written almost verbatim to what I received from local vendors about inspections, staging, contracts, etc. You get the picture. Not to mention, many were featured too! Well, I'm not condeming.

I do want to say, you're such a good person to connect with here on ActiveRain. I have always enjoyed reading your blog posts and receiving comments too!
