Thankful for this Amazing Community: Active Rain...

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 01238708

Active Rain is an amazing community and I  wouldn't have been able to accomplish all that I did this year without you, our amazing member community support. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

There's a lot to be thankful for this year and here are a few things we'd like to share with you but time is limited. I miss our community mangers like Brad Andersohn the platform was so much better.

Now with that said I am grateful and  thankful for Debe Maxwell, CRS  who does the same for free... shame on those who do not appreciate her hard work...

So with that said I am thankful that the platform is still here after all the changes... not sure if I like the directions it is heading but at least it is still here:))

Hope everyone who reads this post sees the good and not the bad, I am thrilled to be here, despite of my straight forward style that many can not appreciate or handle. Rangers Lead The Way (RLTW) ! Just thoughts around Thanksgiving from a very successful Realtor who is affiliated with Berkshire Hathaway in Beverly Hills, CA.

Good morning Endre. As some have voluntarily or forcefully left the ranks of the Rain (and I miss them all) Debe Maxwell, CRS has stepped up to fill the void. And the Rain continues on! Enjoy your day.

Happy Thanksgiving, Endre.
There are so many that contribute to the value of this community. Sometimes I feel like we're a bunch of inmates running the asylum, and our lovely Debe Maxwell, CRS is our selfless leader!   I love my ActiveRain family.

Have a wonderful day!

I am so thankful for the time I spent here with all of you at ActiveRain! Meeting so many of you and continuing to grow together has been an incredible and unprecedented journey.

Endre Barath, Jr. - 10+ years later and you still mention me and share what the community has done for you, I'm honored and humbled as it's done the same for me.

You in particular have continued to make me feel important, and missed in this community! I am humbled and blessed by your every post and comment my friend. You never know how far a good deed or gesture will go, but you have proven that it's endless. The ripples of the rocks we throw into the lake of life do make a difference. Just as they do here in the rain! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 🙏❤️

Just last week, out of the blue, I got a phone call from Bob Stewart (I promise I'll call you back) and then today going back and forth with Rich Jacobson, it's like synchronicity or something?!

Great inspiration is generated by posts like this, I'm personally inspired to possibly resurrect my quiet and lifeless little blog, but only because Endre and so many others members here have truly made a difference and impacted my life in unimaginable ways.😊

I just want to keep giving back, and my blog is how I used to do that. Maybe it's time?! 

Today, and always... I am sincerely thankful and truly blessed beyond wild imaginations.

Hello Endre Barath, Jr. we certainly cannot and will not please everyone.  We are who we are. Some will like it. Some won't. 

Debe Maxwell, CRS does so much for the AR community and I do appreciate her and all that she does. 

Wishing you a wonderful thanksgiving. May you enjoy the day.
