Kindness in the Real Estate & Mortgage Business: First Blog please read & comments welcome!

Real Estate Agent with Crye-Leike Realtors

This is my first ActiveRain Blog...what should I say? Last year I heard on the radio "Life should always have time for Kindness!". This statement can apply to personal life & business; in this business there are so many opportunities for things to go wrong and to be not so nice. My challenge to all of the ActiveRain community is to be a little kinder to someone daily and then let me know how it changes your life & business. So the next time things are turning ugly, because of a problem with a closing, an appraiser, a realtor, a loan officer or customer; stop, take a deep breath, then say I understand things are not going the way we want them to; so how can I help make it better (in a kinder voice). You may be surprised how quickly things turn out better and you may have found a new friend. Please give your comments and suggestions on what to Blog! Thanks and I look forward to making new contacts & friends. Best Wishes Brenda Tressler

Hi Brenda - Well, the pugs drew me in. :)

Then you were kind enough to leave me a comment.  So I came back and read the rest of yor blog.  I was delighted to find someone even newer than me in Active Rain!  I'm here only a few weeks longer than you.  But  I hope you find it as wonderful and informative as I do!

PS Loved the story about your daughter laughing at you blogging... You go, girl!
