OH MY, SO MUCH TO LEARN BUT...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with INTEGRITY REAL ESTATE 19755

As my title states, whew!! I am new to Real Estate after a twenty year teaching career. Well actually, I guess I'm sort of a wing walker because I am doing both at the moment. I haven't quite let go of that "darn" other wing yet! I sat at my computer this evening "soaking up" all the wealth of knowledge on this site and thought, although I don't have past experience and noteworthy items to contribute, I bet I can put new questions from the nonexperienced out to this awesome community to ponder. So here I am and glad to be here. Look forward to reading all these great blogs. Thanks and Happy New Year!

Hi Treva,

Happy New Year and Welcome to the Rain!

Kevin Sandridge, here. I joined the Active Rain community not too long ago myself and wanted to drop a line to share some of the good vibes and welcome wishes I have received already.

A Bit About Active Rain

I'm very excited about this community - basically because folks seem so willing to help out, provide industry insight, and share their good news and experiences!

When I started out on Active Rain, I felt a little overwhelmed.  I hope the following points and suggested sites will help bring you into the mix!  Just my way of saying that I'm glad you're here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One:  Be sure to include a good amount of information on your profile page.  Check out the profiles on other Realtor's sites here on Active Rain who are listed as "Featured" or "Tops" in their area (look for high point totals).  You'll find that this will seriously boost your presence on ActiveRain - via the added points. 

Two: I urge you to keep blogging on this site!  You will be AMAZED at the awesome feedback you receive very soon after they hit the network!  I use Google Reader to subscribe to blogs that provide me with ideas about what I'd like to comment on - both industry wise and just for fun!  Check it out I am more than willing to step you through the site and to help you get a few more blog posts generated if you wish - as a way of adding some value and paying forward some good networking vibes!  :)

Three: Be sure to add in a good number of posts about what you think and consider pertinent regarding your area of expertise!  You'll notice that many if not all of the Featured posting bloggers here on AR do this.

Lastly, I do quite a lot of work via social networks, email campaigns, and relationship building.  If I can ever be of any assistance, don't hesitate to ask.

Here are a few great sites to visit (some of my favorites).  If you like the information they provide, be sure to let them know I sent you!

Looking forward to what you'll share with us here on Active Rain!  :)

Blessings,

Kevin Sandridge
