Philadelphia Real Estate Helpful News and Views : Grateful For Every Active Rain Member Attending Zoom Meetings

Grateful For Every Active Rain Member Attending Zoom Meetings

 

 

My friend and associate Jeff Dowler, CRS   asked me to write what I  was grateful for in 2020. One of the most important things I am grateful for is my Tuesday Zoom meeting with my Active Rain Members. It started out as a social event during the COVID19 Pandemic. We had such a wonderful get-together that we decided to invite more Active Rain members 

 

How could we encourage other members to participate that was a question we asked each other? We came up with what we felt was a great solution. Let's do a challenge and offer points if you attend a meeting and write a post. Now we needed more than just a meeting let's invite speakers as we have a wealth of knowledge within Active Rain. 

 

So it began we had wonderful speakers Marte Cliff  the copi writer joined us and spoke she was marvelous and many members attended we noticed our numbers were growing. 

 

Recently we had Robert Siciliano  who discussed  cyber-security he was excellent I think everyone who attended learned something from him. I know I did. he also teaches a course on cyber security. It maybe something that some of us were interested in taking after listening to him speak he was so interesting you just wanted to know more.

 

Last week we had Elyse Berman, PA who talked about pet-friendly communities . She explained what you should be careful of and what questions to ask buyers . We also had  Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  who talked about multi-gen homes .Every week there is something new you can learn.

 

Let's not forget Ben Kinney  comes by to keep us up to date with everything that is going on and answers all our questions. Something many of us are so grateful for and has seen a tremendous change in the way Active Rain is performing. He comes by once a month and joins us. Thank you so much Ben.

 

 I am so grateful for these Tuesday Zoom meetings and each and every member that attends. They have been a lifeline for me in a time of great distress and unrest. My state was in lockdown at the time when we started. Now the world is brighter but my calendar has a fixed date for Tuesday at 2 PM EST AR Zoom. This will not change for me unless we decide we are no longer participating.

 

What amazing friendships I have made here in Active Rain  more than I can explain

Phone calls and text messgaes when asking how you feel when you don't feel well

Referals back and forth to each other or just advice for a friend in the area

Seeing each other on the Zoom calls is almost like being there in person

It adds that personal touch that makes it extra special

This is what I am grateful for this November 2020 in Active Rain

 

Debe Maxwell, CRS   is the host and you can always find the link on George Souto  post as it is Featured every week all are invited .

Hi Hannah I agree...the Tuesday Zoom meetings have been both informative and fun.  I look forward to them as often as I can attend them.  Good post!

Thanks for the menion. I keep intending to attend more meetings, but haven't gotten it done. For some reason, Tuesday often turns into our day to go to town.

Hi Hannah:

There's a lot here on ActiveRainto be grateful for, and the Zoom meetings, along with the other things you mentioned certainly make one very thankful!

Thank you sharing this for the Challenge!

Perhaps it will also inspire some others who read this to join in the Zoom fun each Tuesday at 2 PM EST.

Good morning, Hannah... an excellent entry into the gratitude challenge... wish I could attend more of these meetings, but my summer and early fall have been crazy busy so it's hard to cut that hour out of a day on many afternoons.

George Souto I believe this to be true. It has tightened an already strong bond between many members and formed new friendships that were only picture profiles on a blog page and made them real people with personalities 

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-820-3376 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 18 days ago

Hey, Sista Carol Williams you are so important here in the Rain.  I did leave out so many people who gave their time to educate us and speak to us on Zoom I hope they forgive me for leaving them out. Hope to see you next week as we all try not to miss but sometimes it cannot be helped - xoxo 

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-820-3376 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 18 days ago

Look at those little Zoom faces.  I am hopeful things will quiet down around my house on Tuesdays, so I can participate more.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) 18 days ago

Hannah Williams I had the last Zoom meeting on my calendar and had every intention of attending yet a business-related matter took priority.  I managed to attend only one Zoom meeting thus far ... that was the second meeting Ben was on.  

No doubt the meetings are powerful and fun!  How could they not be with so many amazing people?

Hi Hannah Williams - Zoom Tuesday is a wonderful idea and the calls I have attended have been very rewarding.  Rick and I also enjoyed talking about the important part that photography plays in real estate. Arizona never shut down.  Unfortunately, a middle of the day Zoom call is hard to coordinate when you are working with clients. Anytime I am free, I plan on attending. It is a great platform.

We are opened now Sheri Sperry - MCNE® but I have become comfortable working at home and have my office set up here. One of my offices is 5 minutes from my house so I can always hop in my car and be there quickly. My home offices is about 25 minutes away but I love this office and worth the ride. I really enjoy meeting up with my Active Friends every week for one hour. I always learn something. I have it scheduled on my calendar as an appointment and it is fairly easy to schedule my days around it.  Unfortunately, I missed your presentation as I had a closing that could not be rescheduled.  There are times we may not be able to attend but we do our best don't we?  Hope to see you soon! 

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-820-3376 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 14 days ago

I have been wanting to join ever since these mettings started, but our office had their zoom meeetings at the same time. Seems that those have stopped for a while so I will try to remember to be at the next A/R one. BTW,  Nice to see you again Hannah.

Great post and recap. I've been fortunate to be on a few of these Zoom's, including two of the Ben Kinney meetings; it humanizes all the names and photos and truly builds comradely. I wish I could attend more, but they land right in the middle of my work day so I'm often showing homes when we're Zooming here.
