Congratulations Brian England!

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Hip! Hip! Hooray! Brian England completed his three entries for the March to a Solution|ActiveRain March 2023 Challenge. As a special award, Brian received two virtual hands full of gold before St. Paddy's Day!

Education is important. With a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics from the University of Arizona and a Masters Degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on Finance from St. John's University, Brian also has the unusual skill of laughing (ha-ha) and making others feel comfortable when he travels the distance to meet up with a few AR friends. On ActiveRain he can brighten our day. You never know what he looks like during the holidays or special occasions, such as St. Paddy's Day. I have a feeling Brian has a Special Wardrobe Professional who makes him look in character for special events and makes gifts like drinking glasses with his branding too. If so, I think her name may be Sharon Tara

It's good to build relationships here on ActiveRain. Meeting Brian and his family was a special treat for me when they came to TX and I met him looking like a wet mop because of torrential rain storms where the rain came up above my ankles when I stepped out of the car. On that day, Brian did not laugh at what I looked like and he was smart enough not to insist pictures were taken. We laughed about it later privately.

Brian participated in the ActiveRain March 2023 Challenge. As luck would have it, he got the job done before St. Paddy's Day. I wonder if he has somewhere to go, to celebrate? Now that his entries are completed, he is FREE to move around, work on his business, or have a few libations with friends or family. Brian is very sociable. His blog posts always show a different side of him, like how devoted he is to sharing opportunities to give back to his community. He lives in Arizona for more than 40 years and is very humble and understanding that charity is our duty as human beings for the unfortunate. 

AR Challenge. Brian peeled back the curtains and showed us what happened in business using three critical thinking examples with lessons he learned. Don't you just love the outpouring of stories coming out as a result of the challenge? Just think 3 entries times the number of members who participates + the number of entries that can't make 3 makes a nice collection of the inside scoop of what goes on in our private lives to us, while giving our best to the clients we serve.

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist and myself want to say thank you to Brian and everyone on ActiveRain. Your stories and willingness to share is for everyone's benefit. Thank you, one and all!

Happiness and honesty is contagious!

As a retiree, I'll bet you have stories that have never been told;  but wouldn't this be the greatest opportunity?

Congratulations to Brian England.  With all of those gold coins, you get to buy the next round of adult beverages.  Brian is a real blessing to ActiveRain and he is one of the first AR members that I met in person.  He made me feel very welcome here in AZ.  He does get around, doesn't he, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

The only character flaw he possesses is his insistence on #NoPickleballForBrian , especially since he knows that #ResistanceIsFutile  🤣

Ray Henson - In CA or AZ you've got a friend!

I definitely don't see it as a character flaw Ray Henson and too bad that all of the gold that I receive is not real, haha.  Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP knows that I get around since we have met in person too!
