Active Rain: Responding to the Stirrings of a Real Estate Market

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with REAL ESTATE RESOURCES & NETWORK 209970

We can guess, and based on intuition we can plan, but we never can know what will happen today, horse farm in asheville NC and KINDRED SPIRITStomorrow, next week, next year--in all the years to come. Never can we know

But always, we can choose. We always can choose to hear and respond to the stirrings of a real estate market as it closes doors and opens new ones. Always we can choose to include in our planning the "bigger picture" ... for example the implications of  social networking , and we can choose to respond to the consumer-facing WWW even if that be with great sighs. 

To gather up a fresh perspective like so many acorns in my real estate basket is no easy chore. Old patterns, outmoded self images, and negative conditions could feel too much. . .. But here I am at Active Rain, and ,in the past few years,  I have met so many amazing people, including a merry group of "greenies", (the ECO-All-Stars)   and have, in the process,  discovered through  Active Rain a new way to reach out to others

(I took this photo of "Kindred Spirits" at a horse farm for sale just outside of Asheville, NC)

And, do you agree? This social network offers so many interesting possibilities-  from sharing information, to meeting "kindred spirits"  all across the world. For me, this gives rise to a sense of equanimity 

I like this shuttle to a space where time, and the barriers and the resistance to change seem to dissolve, a yet vibrant place that lies beyond the ordinary thrum of real estate, where responding to  the stirrings of a real estate market, I am not alone.

Hi! Sometimes, I am thinking,  a thought or a concept can best be portrayed without words ...this photo "felt" right to me as I talked about responding to the stirrings in the real estate market. . .thanks for noticing =)

I've been posting here at Active Rain since 2006...and am LOVING the ride...so getting 'on board" as you say, is not only important given the social marketing scenario on the WWW, but it can be a treat ...

You sure hit the nail on the head when you commented, " ...The need to continue learning is constant...."

Possibly I'll add...that THIS kind of learning is not standard sit in a class and draw-doodles...this learning asks for attention and calls for creativity...and even gives a gift of camaraderie,
if we let it =)

I appreciate the fact that you underscored the benefits of AR 's place in our lives when you commented, " AR definitely keeps us moving forward.  I too am grateful for the friendships and motivation to keep getting better!..."  

For me, the friendships you mention include Y O U ...

I notice you emphasized a concept in your comment...one that (for me) it's all about...and that is the idea of connecting.... That notion is so important. I feel it is at the foundation of authentic communication....Is this the golden thread that runs through the tapestry of success, even in difficult days in the real estate market....?

Great post, JaneAnne.  I love the photo, too.  The real estate industry is ever-changing and one must adapt to survive.  The internet and other recent technologies change frequently so it is daunting to stay abreast of it all.  I know that close to 100% of my clients start their search for property on some type of web medium.

Hi JaneAnne ~ I just HAD to slip in tonight and comment on your feature! As always, a picture worth visiting for and spending a few minutes in the quiet solitude that always comes through your photo art! WWW, social networking and CELL PHONES! have made the world so much smaller. I quite often find myself telling people "hey, I know someone in...any city, usa" It is amazing what a very small world we live in and the wonderful relationships that can be developed through these types of networks.

It is a new frontier but it opens us all up globally~ it's a wonderful thing!

Congrats on the feature!

You commented, " I know that close to 100% of my clients start their search for property on some type of web medium. ..." I have bee keeping track myself and have found, as you have, a preponderance of net-savvy clients who found me when they searched for "green" in Asheville...
