This month's contest hosted by Rocky and Kathleen suggests we write about positive things that agents do and serve the community as a priority.
How in the world do I pick just one? Dozens fit this criterion-take a look at our leaderboard, and anyone would be a good candidate. Over the years, I have spoken with most of them, so how do I choose one to highlight?
Easy, when I picked up the phone and found out tomorrow was the birthday of Dr. Karen Lewis, Broker 954-2489149. I was delighted that Karen was out celebrating tonight. But she still took my call! That's when I decided to make this one about Karen!
What intrigued me about Karen was her willingness to go outside that box some years ago when most people said her idea was not a good one.
Karen had an idea to open a kiosk in a mall in Florida. There were lots of comments, and 98% were against this idea.
My advice and encouragement were: If this is something you believe in and if this is something you feel passionate about-then you go for it!
I followed Karen, her kiosk, her radio show, and her brokerage. Every month or so, Karen would give me a call, and we would talk about real estate. We've even done a webinar allowing her agents to ask questions.
Karen took copious notes of each of these calls, and I was having fun answering questions and giving my take on situations. If you don't know Karen, please go to her blog, encourage her to be more active in The Rain, and while you are at it, join me in wishing an outstanding Realtor® Karen a wonderful Happy Birthday!
