Today, as I prepare to go show several properties this afternoon, I'd like to steal a moment to thank ActiveRain for its purpose and existence. Believe me, I have learned that the more I have learned, the less I know. Over and over and over.
It always has given me the utmost in satisfaction to be able to help guide, educate and negotiate for my clients and keeping their best interest in mind. As much as I have been able to provide my clients a top customer service experience throughout each and every one of my transactions, I have always walked away having learned just one more "tidbit" through experience that makes me a more valuable Realtor and Consultant.
Likewise, in my busy schedule, and whether it's in the afternoon or in the middle of the morning, everytime that I get on Active Rain, I am quite pleased with the free expert advise from many of my fellow Agents that have gone through experiences that helped me be aware of things (an extremely vague word for the plethora of events, contigencies, showings, voided contracts, etc....) that can come up during any transaction. I am grateful to have the training, continuing education, inspiration from my fellow agents both here with Keller Williams and others, but I seemingly never can get enough. Hence, thank you Active Rain. I have learned that we can learn from other people's triumphs and mistakes.
I have only been a member for 4 or 5 months here in 2008 and I still feel like a "newbie" in many ways. And in many ways, many of you, as well as myself, are acutely aware that I still am. And that's okay. Because as of today, it looks like my "points" with Active Rain will now go over 5,000! Thank you AR. BTW - Congrats also to ActiveRain for hitting the big 100,000 in membership. I believe that I predicted personally to Bob Stewart via e-mail that this was going to be the week for AR to hit the magic 100,000.
