What I Learned This Week in Active Rain -May 5 - May 11, 2013

I always select a few of these Kathy Streib picks every week so let me highlight them for you also. Bloggers always learn on Active Rain. But Kathy selects some posts  you may not have seen yet or that may be off the beaten path. Enjoy your real estate learning class today!

What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain- May 5 -May 11, 2013.


I learn something new every day at ActiveRain!  With this series I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment.  It could be something techie, about Real Estate, about a place or person!


May 5: Barbara Michaluk   Come to a Baby Shower to Support This Year’s Orphaned Animals

I’ve been to more baby showers than I can remember but this is one I would welcome attending. Maybe all of our communities could use such a baby shower.



brad MacKenzieMay 6:  Brad MacKenzie     Keep Your Computer Running Clean and Fast.

I don’t like it when my computer isn’t working.  But like so many things we have to maintain it.  Brad offers some programs and advice you can use!




Gary WoltalGary Woltal-   Perception is Reality All the Time.

You know the phrase “It is what it is.”  You could say that “it is what people think it is.’  Read Gary’s post!




Karen Ann StoneKaren Anne Stone     Who Wins the ActiveRain Most Valuable Player Award?  Who’s the ActiveRain MVP?`

I can always count on Ms Karen (as I like to call her) to present something on a topic with her very own take on the subject.  Please head there and read this.



Jeff FisherMay 7:   Jeff Fisher   Staycation Time

Jeff’s post was featured but it was so well done I hope you’ll stop over if you haven’t already.  We’re all busier now and let’s face it with gasoline prices the way they are, coupled with the “joy” of flying, why not put on your tourist cap in your own city.



frank laischMay 8:  Frank Laisch     Referrals Are Great. A Great Product for Homeowners Protection.

Home security systems have changed from when you had to have a hard-wired system.  Take a look at this system that’s very different from the old home seecurity system.



bill ZumwaltMay 9:  Bill Zumwalt   How to Make Sure Your Entertainment is Deductible

I really don’t like paperwork but let’s face it, it’s necessary.  Bill gives us some very helpful tips, especially one on just how to save the information without it becoming a paper nightmare.  


Lyn SimsMay 10:  Lyn Sims   Buyers, Stagers, Everybody Can Use This Tool

I’ve tried several Room Planning Tools and even one by Icovia years ago.  This one looks like it’s been updated.  Bet you’ll open it up and it will be just like the days when you used to play house!

Fernando HerbosoMay 11:   Fernando Herboso       Getting Leads While Sleeping

I loved the movie Avatar.  Fernando paints a picture for us that can help us target the very clients that we want.






Please don’t forget to check out Pat Kennedy’s and Charita Cadenhead’s Weekly Series Posts.


Thank you for letting me do what I love to do each day... learn something new!

Excellent choices this week, Kathy.  I particularly enjoyed Karen's and Fernando's which I hadn't seen.
