Hi Everybody,

I just joined Activerain and I am very impressed by the subject matter and discussions that I have read so far.  I am a Realtor in New Jersey and realize that, while how we conduct our real estate business may differ from State to State, our basics are the same.  I look forward to sharing experiences with you and improving on my effectiveness as an agent as a result.

Hi Gloria! Welcome!

There is so much knowledge on Active Rain that you will still be reading 2 months from now, but real good stuff.  The friendships and business acquaintances are added at no charge also.  You will love it, but the addition is free.  Good Luck
