Congratulations Bob "RealMan" Timm!

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Bob "RealMan" Timm is the most recent recipient of two virtual hands full of gold coins for the March to a Solution|ActiveRain March 2023 Challenge. Bob completed three great entries. Be sure to read his stories and all the entries for this challenge.

Those who participated showed their talent, used critical thinking, problem solving skills, and solutions. It has been a humbling experience. 

Many people get into the business because we make our careers look so easy. We are all only humans, helping other humans and pets too! Much time is given for the greater good who now have homes. We really were created to help one another. 

In every transaction and in every situation, there are lessons to be learned. Just as there are no two transactions alike, there are no two human beings alike either. 

Nobody wants to fail, but sometimes we do. Even houses fail. That could happen when the property doesn't sell, there are too many repairs, it is priced to high, or other reasons. Perception is reality. One of the worst types of failure comes out of the mouth. As Bob pointed out in his final entry for the March 2023 Challenge, we need to think, be kind, and never gossip. When the tongue is on fire, there is pain and nothing to gain. Our feet were made for walking. Remember to walk the talk, the good talk! The tongue can be naughty. Stay out of trouble. Slander is an ethics violation. 

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist and I are very thankful for the wonderful entries written by the most beautiful and thoughtful people here on ActiveRain and the Readers on ActiveRain who are benefiting from our very own existence and willingness to share. Writing + Sharing = Learning.

Good morning Patricia,

Good for Bob "RealMan" Timm ! He's written some excellent entries! You are really getting people out to conjure up some problems that occurred in their real estate transactions and how they were solved or accepting the outcome and move on. Great entries!

Mar 18, 2023 05:20 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - Thank you. I am glad so many Members on ActiveRain have participated and shared a variety of issues that occured in their business, such as, what happened, what the solution was that worked or did not work, and the lessons learned.

It is heartwarming; others, like yourself, are appreciating the stories about real Real Estate situations that comes up and taking the time to read and comment on the author's blog post. Also, it is very encouraging, don't you think?

Kat Palmiotti - ActiveRain Members are extraordinary people! Participants who shared and completed three entries are to be congratulated.

I understand it may not be possible, but as long as the blogger gets comments for what they can do this month of March means a lot to me and mostly to them. 

A shout out, is the least I can do in appreciation.
