When I Grow Up I Want To Be Just Like Her!

Many of us have been successful in our Real Estate career and I feel that we should Thank those that have enriched our journey along the way! My Them Them is all about Connie Harvey.

Connie and I are Realtors at Prudential Woodmont Realty and her office is across from mine on "Million Dollar Boulevard" an area in our office that happens to house many Top Producers in our company!

Connie is always using her time wisely and discovered this thing they call Active Rain and invited me to join and blog my way to winning the Mercedes Benz SLK 230 with all the points I acquire in this adventure; NOT!

Connie is like my morning devotion as she pushes me to do all the things I need to do and makes me feel guilty when I don't! Keep up the good work as I do have potential!

Connie is preparing for a marathon next Spring so of course, she is urging me to participate. She is now running 6 miles and my physical capability is about to the refrigerator and back but she never gives up on me.

Connie introduced me to a new gadget called a flip video and you know I had to get me one. I keep it in my handbag for that special candid moment.

Connie emails me when she misses me at the office and makes comments like "Have you fallen off the face of the earth; your Halloween candy has been sitting on your desk, untouched."

Connie checks my location on Active Rain and tells me how many points I need to beat my competition and win the Mercedes!

Connie also finds time in her busy schedule to be actively involved with the Tennessee Baptist Childrens Home where she plans events and spends a lot of time with the kids at the home. She is also on our Charity Committee!

Connie is my friend, my colleague, my mentor and my Them Them!

Thanks Connie!

Thanks Melody. She is very dedicated and keeps me on my toes. You are right, we could use a lot more folks like that, especially in our industry.

Denise,

Do you share Connie?  We all could use someone like this in our lives.  It is great that you view this as the positive that it obviously is in your life.  Way to go for both of you.

Derenda, I think this is a time in our career where we can each make a positive impact in the lives of others as there are folks losing their jobs and their homes. I am going to catch on to Connies enthusiasm and and maybe one day be a them them to someone as well! Thanks for the comment!

To everyone else, I hired a tech person in May this year, who got me to join AR. I'm still in the learning mode and loving it. I'm dragging Denise with me!

Welcome to AR, Denise!

A Connie will be perfect when I sit in my canyon, sipping wine, and pretending I am in Tuscany.  I can pull her string and hear her say things like, "Please, have more wine" in Italian.

We'll leave the cameras and the flip in her box for that one.

I am hearing that! She is fluent in Italian and occasionally in the office, we get to hear her converse on the phone. Thanks for the comment.
