Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker

Hello great online world of active rain and fellow realestate professionals. This is not only my first blog on active rain but my first blog in general. Why so far behind you might ask? Well, Ive got news for you, not everyone has jumped on the interenet band wagon! I know, I know, to most of us (including myself) cant go a day without checking email or making sure the latest tweet status hasnt changed or that I havent received an email that just CANT wait. But here in Winter Haven FL, the "citrus capital of the world" (which is not true by the way, Brazil has been outproducing the US for years) people just dont seem to dig the internet vibe quite as much.

So what is my point? The point is I want to be proven wrong. I would love to receive contact, even if it is just a quick hello, to prove to my self that there are people ouit there listening/watching and that I am not wasting my time. I am putting myself out into the online world and eagly anticipating meeting online savvy people like my self in the central florida area. Being brand new to this website and blogging in general I honestly do not know what to expect but, if you are out there, consider this opening blog my online networking SOS! Hear my call!
