The Rain is Refreshing for Me!  Three Reasons on Why!

Real Estate Agent with K1 Realty Group 3017422


My main three reasons on why the rain is refreshing for me:


1.  I love reading and seeing so many wonderful posts.  Sometimes I see some not so wonderful posts on the Rain.  I don’t bash anyone on their thoughts.  That’s just it-their thoughts.  I would love to sit down and read all the posts that are on the “Rain” because there is such great information.  My schedule does not allow me to read every post.  I stop by my mentor pages, someone in general, or someone who has no comments on their posts.  Every now and then I do post something as simple as I love your post.  Great article!  It could be because my fingers are hurting or I’m on my cell where I don’t like to comment on my cell as opposed to my desktop.  I do glance at articles sometimes instead of reading it all the way through.  It just depends on what I am doing; but the title may have grabbed my attention and I may schim through the article to get a take away and that’s the part that I make a comment. 


2.  I love the different perspectives.  I am so amazed at how different people think.  I can write yes, this is it only to find out no this is not it.  I have my own disclaimer:  Most information that is given is most of our opinions and our experience.  I am so humble that people will correct me, people will set me straight, and they are free to be who they are which leads me to my number three.


3.  I love to be free.  The rain is like face book but with valuable information.  I get to connect with who I believe are some of the greatest real estate agents in the world and it have nothing to do with production moreso than character.  The rain is refreshing to me because it allows me to:

Be creative

Be free to write what I want to write

Write funny blogs

Write my reflections

Be silly

Be crazy

Be serious

Be grateful

Discuss my weaknesses

Discuss my strengths

Help me think things through

Follow mentors 


I still have a heart of gold.  I still love all people.  I still work real hard & love what I do so even though I may comment great article or I don't get a chance to read all the blogs sometimes in its entirety and still make a comment, it does not take away my credentials on being a great agent. 

The Rain is Truly Refreshing for Me!

It is the relatiosnhips....the opportunities...the intangibles one cannot begin to describe that are reasons for jumping with both feet into the Rain

Thank you for sharing some of the important things you gain from AR.

It is the sharing of ideas that is so refreshing.

I often gain much more perspective when I read the comments.

It is all a part of sharing.

It is obvious the sweetness of your heart.

Best wishes.

One of the things i like reading are the weekly round ups by different people because as much as I love reading there are days i just don't read everything I want to and miss things. Those posts allow me to catch up and sometime to find someone new worth following as well. Love your post and your writing style. Keep it up.

I don't have the time to write most of the time, nor have the time to read all the comments from my posts when I do decide to post, especially when people just usually post to "get points"

I completely agree, it feels like a extra stream of education while we are on the job.  Get it.... stream.....'s still early....

Dear Karen,

If you could read every post, you would be a retired superhuman. Gotta work from time to time too, right?
