Active Rain Ohana

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

This has been quite the week for me. Working a lot of hours in many areas to serve my team. Not the kind of schedule I plan on keeping forever, but the kind of schedule you do to attain orbit. Maintaining orbit takes far less effort.

 

While doing all of this, I did miss the Tuesday call. And I was blown away that someone was so nice to reach out to me to say that they noticed I wasn’t on the call and they even offered to give me a synopsis of what they got from the Tuesday call. I thought that was so very kind. But the longer I am here, the more I realize that is what 99% of Active Rain members are – very kind and helpful.

 

Then tonight, I saw some points show up in my total. Those points just happened to place me as the #10 agent in Las Vegas for Active Rain. Actually, I would be higher than number 10 if the people that no longer sold real estate in Las Vegas because they moved or left the business completely were not counted.

 

And this week I also got several text messages from an agent that 99% of you don’t know yet even though she is an Active Rain member. I just did for her what folks like Will Hamm , Debe Maxwell, CRS , Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 , Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist , Kathy Streib  and more did for me – reached out and made a personal connection by phone. I paid forward the encouragement and knowledge that was given to me.

 

For all the software snafus, headaches and chihuahuas that may drive us up a wall here in the Rain, there is a family. Or as Hawaiians call it – “Ohana”. Basically that means the family you choose – not necessarily your DNA. The Rain Ohana keeps giving and even though we lose members from time to time, the legacy lives on. Encouragement and kindness breeding encouragement and kindness. Yes, there may be the 1% that swim the opposite direction, but 99% of the Rain Ohana continue that legacy.

 

One day, after a long and successful career, the new agent I was communicating with this week will retire. Maybe 20, 30 or 40 years from now. I hold faith that she will continue that encouragement and knowledge. She has already proven to be very smart and very kind. I am sure that when she does retire, she will leave the legacy running long after she is gone as well.  In the meantime, I will call attention to her here. You may want to follow her blogs. I really see great things coming from Rachel Morin.

You made me look and filter the results of myself "standing in the Rain".

I am ranked 16th in Idaho but if I filter it "real estate agents" I am #10.  If I drop down to the county, I am 3rd.  However, I am more engaged now so I expect that to improve.

I agree that we should filter out those that are no longer "Active" in ActiveRain.  If we started with people that are no longer licensed, that would be a great start.

Thanks for giving me a little chill and goosebumps this morning.    I love this new concept - "ohana" and it definitely applies around here 🥰

In Hawaii, your Ohana is a legacy of love, compassion and understanding, so, although some are maki, their stories are told and retold by their Ohana for years and years to come.

We could all learn more from our Ohana's experience, so, I favor keeping the AR Ohana regardless if they have retired either above ground or below ground.

Ohana, huh?  Now the name of our local vet makes a whole lot more sense.  
Active Rain has always been a special place where networking turns to friendship.
