Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-September 26 to October 2, 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!

 

I'm throwing in Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 post from last week because I was looking at the inside of my eyelids when she posted it.

 

Margaret RomeSeptember 25: Margaret Rome On the LIne-Can I Get an Answer?

What an interesting situation!! And You have to scroll down to read Jim Patton's comment.

 

Dan DeeSeptember 26:  Dan Dee McGinnis    Real Estate Sales Before the Internet
I love the internet but there’s something to be said for a good old phone call.  And yes, we do make time for the things we want to do. 

 

GrantGrant Schneider You Don't Need Agents. You Need the Right Agents.

This is one I related to. When I hired consultants for a staffing service, I had to look beyond skills and experience. I could train them for that but their attitude and work ethic were harder to do something about.

 

RoySeptember 27: Roy Kelley Thankful Pumpkin, A New Family Tradition

Roy shared this from Facebook and it is such a wonderful idea and a good tradition to start!

 

WendyWendy Rulnick Maybe It Was Karma

We've all been in this boat! I love Wendy's positive take on it!!!

 

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253September 28: Jeffrey Dimuria Sold/Closed Equestrian Property in Melbourne

This is a sweet story and reminds us that it's not always about the money.

 

JanJan Green Which Water Heater is Right for Your Home?

What an informative post from Jan!!! Save this because you know you'll need it down the road.

 

Peter Mohylsky.  September 29: Peter Mohylsky Comfort and Happiness Are Different

Interesting question. What's yours????

 

ScottScott Godzyk 2005 vs 2021 When will things change in Real Estate?

Good observation from Scott. What do you think?

 

MikeMike McCann More Rain for Central Nebraska...Farmers are Smiling?? Maybe Not...

We depend on our farmers but we know so little about what they do and how they do it.

 

WandaSeptember 30: Wanda Kubat-Nerdin Choices other people make are theirs to own. Not Yours.

This advice seems so simple and yet so true!! The best you can do is present the choices and information and leave the decision to them.

I've been to a basketball game, flag football and somehow came to terms on a new listing! Whew I'm ready to crash!
