Snuggle-Up! and Blog


Because AR can effect your business and your life!

Because AR can effect your business and your life! This is so cool!

This last Thursday, the brokers from my firm met for our bi-weekly networking group. Two other very active AR Blogger REALTORS(r) were at the meeting, as well, Kathy Torline, and Patricia Beck.

During our general discussions, the name of a particular lender came up, with an attached horror story, which automatically brought to mind a blog I'd read a couple of days before written by Marchel Peterson. I mentioned it to Patricia, who was standing next to me and has had tons of interact with Marchel, just as I have. And it was so amazing, even though neither of us have met Marchel, we both knew her by just her first name.

Marchel's blog was a heart wrenching story, for sure. Which kept it on my mind and caused me to mention it. But, I was just blown away that Patricia, my friend and collegue at my brokerage, also knew just her first name only!

Isn't it cool that I know people all across the nation, that well! Never, ever would I have gotten that opportunity without actively participating in AR.

Hi Marianne- That is too cool! I was telling my husband not long ago..just think honey, we can go on  a cross country meet and greet with all the connections and friends I've made here on AR! I'll see you all soon!

Josh: We have a REBarCamp event in Denver this Friday! I'm really looking forward to it. Will you be able to join us?

Mary: I know! Isn't it fantastic. If I visited with a REALTOR(r) in each stop I made, I could write off my cross country trip as a business experience! Kewl!

Marianne, That is also what I love about AR.  Maybe next time I come to Elizabeth I can personally meet both you and Patricia in person.  I would have LOVED to come to your rebar camp but as I think I told you I decided Mother's day was more important.  If you hear of a CRS class taking place in your area please let me know as that would also be a draw for me.  I just have one more class to get the designation.

Marianne, Marchel saves us all with her great knowledge and experience in the business and it is great you and Patricia tapped into that.

Marchel: I'll look up classes for you and get back to you! What fun it would be.

Gary: I just love that I have, through AR, become friends with people like you and Marchel! Ain't life great!
