Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-February 7 to February 13, 2021


Every day there is something new to learn here at ActiveRain.  With this series, I try to highlight posts 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!



February 7: Grant Schneider Salesperson or Assistant Buyer?

Put yourself in your buyers' shoes. Do you enjoy being sold by someone whose primary goal is something out of Glengarry Glen Ross?


February 8: Margaret Rome It's On the House

Take heed. Whether you have a fireplace and chimney or know someone who does, share this information with them.


peter den boerFebruary 9: Peter den Boer Is It One or the Other?

Michael Jacobs This is a great pondering post for you.




February 10: Mary Hutchison My Biggest Source of Business Last Year? COVID 19

What about you? What was your biggest source of business?



june piper-brandonFebruary 11: June Piper-Brandon    Don’t Take Things So Personally

June shares something she learned that I can we could all use at one time or another, especially when you don’t get the listing contract. 


Robert Siciliano Avoiding COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

There are so many ads and public service announcements about the COVID vaccines. Please read and share with those you know.


February 13: Scott Godzyk Have you ever heard of a DE-ESCALATION Clause?

Interesting! Share your experience with Scott. BTW- Larry used something similar to buy our house in Leesburg but he called it a drop-dead clause. (he said with a smile)

I missed a few, and I read a few of the posts in your wonderful selection Kathy. Thank you also for the Zoom schedule! I've been trying so hard to keep that time-slot open but it just doesn't alway work out. I do, however, see a few must-attend events. No way, I could miss Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 presenting!

Grant Schneider I really like yours this week being featured because it’s such a common thing to be confusing the two for a lot of folks out there.

Hi Kathy lots of good picks once again.  I didn't get a chance to read much last week in the rain so hopefully I can get caught up.  Stay warm down in Houston - and safe!
