Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-April 3 to April 9, 2022


Every day there is something 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!


Nina April 4:  Nina Hollander   Does Your Real Estate Agent Offer Performance Guarantees?

I’d imagine that the agents here either offer them formally or informally. What about you?


Liz and BillApril 5: Liz & Bill Spear Ask An Ambassador: Reach Out and Slap Someone

It's of little use to write a post if no one will see it! Bill makes excellent points.


WillApril 6: Will Hamm Where did all the expireds go in the Denver CO area?

This was interesting and wondered if others kept similar statistics.

John's post is a reminder to read and know your contract!


EdApril 8: Ed Silva Buyer's Frustrations in Connecticut are Understandable

Ed provides some good tips for buyers who are getting frustrated. He even takes us back briefly to remind us of when it was a buyer's market.

Thank you, Kathy Streib, for the selection. I found Nina Hollander, Broker post that I would have missed had it not been for you to include her post on your list.

I also look forward to the Zoom on May 18th - Ben Kinney. I can't wait for that one!

Kathy I always enjoy your selections... in this instance I have to say there are two posts I would not have included in your selections... both parties talk a good game but are not team players and both are on the first page of the leaderboard and I will just leave it at that. Endre
