This is scary!

Real Estate Agent with Home Real Estate

I've been dragging my feet.  I've been intimidated by the thought of blogging.  Will I have anything worthy to say?  I guess I never seem to have a problem coming up with an opinion, an idea or some comment on just about any topic.  So I don't know why I'm scared to try.  I'm reading through all the instructions on html code and my head is reeling!  I hope I don't mess up.  I hope I can get organized.  I hope someone out there will hear me.charlie brown

I'm a fairly new Realtor in the Centennial/Aurora area of Colorado.  That's the Denver suburbs.  I've lived here for 26 years, raised three kids here, and have been really involved in the community to the point that I recognize people nearly everywhere I go.  I think that says something because Aurora isn't a small city.  Currently I'm involved with Smoky Hill High School on PTCO, as a Sophomore class representative and as a general Smoky Hill cheerleader.  OK.  I don't don the little skirt.  ooo.  That's a scary thought.  I just like to be present and support kids in all their athletics and performances.  I fit as much into my schedule as I can.  I love my little corner of Denver and love helping people.  I aim to be that crazy real estate lady and want everyone who comes in contact with me to always Remember the laughter!

See,  you can do it!  It will get easier every time.

I grew up in Aurora, near Gateway High School.  That was nice to read about someone from there!

Brenda, welcome to AR! I think from what you have described here that you are going to have a very good career in Real Estate! 1. You are getting in when it is a very bad market in general, so you will develop good habits! 2. You are very involved in the community and know lots of people ( who like you ;-) ) and you are getting caught up with the latest technology/industry knowledge by being on Active Rain. Good Job!
