100,000! - I still can't believe it!


Tell me that I am not dreaming and this is for real!  I joined Active Rain on February 12, 2007 and when I first joined I remember looking at my measly 1,500 points and looking at the number 1 member in Idaho that had an amazing 19,000 points and thinking to myself...WOW, that's a lot of points!  I thought I would be lucky if I had accumulated 6,000 points by years end!  If you would have told me I would have had over 100,000 points 5 1/2 months later and be the #1 AR member in Idaho I would have laughed!

As soon as I realized the power of Active Rain and realized the massive amount of information that was available I started blogging (I want to forget the first blogs I wrote!) and just kept asking questions.  I blogged and commented on so many blogs and can honestly say I have used many tips that have changed my real estate world more than I can say. 

I am now working on my 12th referral receiving and giving now and will send 2 more referrals tomorrow morning to two AR members.

All I can say to each and every one of you is "Thank You" from the bottom of my heart for being my friends and for believing I bring something of value to this wonderful site!  God bless you all!

Neal - Thank you for the invitation my friend!
