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!

Congratulations! It seems unatainable when one first starts out...but you are proof that it absolutely CAN happen. The first week I joined AR I went from "nobody" to the number 2 featured person in my county. After that I stayed away from AR for awhile. I would have so many more points right now if I had "stayed the course." I'm back in go-mode and look forward to reaching 100,000 points like you by the end of the year. It is nice to hear that you have received so many referrals from your activity on AR.

Very nice sir, and also a blessing for your clients.  Meaning that those that were referred to you were lucky to get someone so committed to his business, and to the clients that you referred out.  Just knowing that you were able to refer your clients to someone that you were able to know due to their great writings is a huge asset to your clients.  You are able to pick people due to how they present themselves and their knowledge base in this business by how they present themselves on AR.

Once again, congrats, and my best to both you, your business and all of your clients.
