April Contest 

 

 

I am so proud of our industry for being so positive. We are moving forward virtually. Education and real estate do not stop. We adapt. 

There are so many ways REALTORS are helping each other, our clients, and the public. We are looking for ways to show the good, the kindness, the compassion, and the concern for public safety. 

I thought this would be a perfect contest for April.

Write a post sharing how we are showing the positives of real estate right now, how professionals can help each other, their community, and of course, clients, including buyers and sellers.

Many of you have already written posts that fit into this category. Share with us the way we can be calming at this time. 

I would also like to encourage everyone to make contact with other members who have been absent from AR. Maybe they were just too busy; maybe they just got out of the habit of blogging, and time has gone passed.

 

Bonus:

 

Bring a member back!

Get a member who has not blogged in six months or longer, to post and each of you will get an additional 500 points.

 

 

RULES:

Of course, there are some rules to get your 1500 points plus the bonus above.

1. Your post should be at least 350 words – I’d be surprised if you can write an effective community post that doesn’t exceed this requirement.

2. Include AT LEAST 1 photo/graphic or video

3. The challenge ends on April 30th at 11:59 PM PST 

4. You must include a working link to your post below

 

This community has always been so generous one and I am looking forward to all the entries this month.

Ahh, I love you, Margaret Rome! 

I know about that deadline - I knew for at least two weeks what I was going to share and just couldn't get all of the embed codes put into the post (from FB)!! 

I can write a post in minutes but, the perfectionist/OCD in me MUST have the perfect graphic(s)!! LOL

Seriously, thank you again, Margaret, for being such a wonderful support person to everyone here in the Rain. You do so much for everyone and we are so thankful for you. You pay it forward every single day! 

Thanks for hosting again - you always do such a great job of getting participation. Now, I think this post brought out the best in people and the posts that were shared caused some to get busy GIVING! 

SEE? You do more than you even know! Hugs and Happy May!
