Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.

Wow... Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker and I were thrilled with the participation in the February 2022 Challenge: What's Your Story? 

We knew the ActiveRain Community is a very special place and has a lot of amazing members. We didn't know just how amazing!  We were so impressed and inspired by all of the life stories that were shared during the month. 

If you weren't able to keep up during the month and want to check out the amazing entries, all of the links are in the comments section of the original Challenge post:

Good morning Will Hamm 
Thanks for participating in our Challenge. It WAS really interesting getting to know more about our active members. I loved each and every entry. Your story about growing up in the restaurant business sure explains how you got interested in cooking. Did you ever want to own a restaurant like your Mom?

Hello Carol,  No never wanted to own one since 80% of them do not make it almost like real estate agents.

Hi Carol Williams & Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker!

Thanks to you two amazing ladies for hosting last month's challenge! I adore you both and can't believe the 'turn-out' you received for your challenge. I have one written but, never got it posted and the other one started - still neither posted! It's been a wicked, busy month. I may just post them anyway - just to share! 

Seriously, thank you again - we all appreciate you both more than you will ever know!
