Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-April 11 to April 17, 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!


April 11: Raymond Henson     Elk Grove Market Update for March 2021

Market updates can be interesting to read but when I scrolled down I love what Raymond included!!! Check it out to see!!!


Margaret Rome Taking Care of Business or Giving Excuses

Amen to what she said. It's time to do your job or admit you didn't!!!



April 13: Joseph Domino Anthem Arizona's Veterans Memorial, An Arizona Hidden Treasure

If I could, I would be there on November 11 at 11:11 am. Read Joseph's post and find out why.


Andrea Bedard This Is the Buyer Reaction You Want

I'll say it is!!! Yes, other things matter but the wow factor of a kitchen or bathroom is huge.


John Dunham Take Aways from the S Storm In February.

Whether we have the storm again (and let's hope not) this is good information for us to know.



April 14: Jeff Dowler Buyers and Sellers- Keep Your Eye on the Goal

This is important information for buyers and sellers and agents as well. Don't get caught up in the game...keep your focus.


April 15: Rocky Dickerson Preferable Outcomes

Does practice make perfect??? What do you think? Love this analogy.
