"What we hope you gather from viewing our blog, our profile, our company, is that we are not your traditional brokerage. We do not simply go out, put up billboards, sit behind a Large name waiting for business to come through the double doors into our reception area, etc. We prefer to take an active role in our community, by doing projects such as the "A Community A Day" project where we highlight a local community or tract of homes, and do everything from Photo It with our photographer to talk about the market in that community, what homes sell for, who the HOA is if it has one, what the tax rate is, are there any issues with resales, desirability, who the original builder was, etc. We take pride in helping families properly research an area PRIOR to purchasing in that particular area. Purchasing a home is generally the largest purchase you will make in your lifetime, and doing it with a brokerage you trust will be a descision that benefits you for many years to come."

"My Active Rain Success Story may not sound so WOW to anyone else but I have to say, it was a WOW day for me when I realized someone was actually following and reading my blog.
A would-be client called on one of our listings, and of course I got the lead since I am the team's main Buyers' Agent. She never mentioned a word about my blog until one day I was showing her properties-probably the second or third time we had met, and I was talking with her about short sales and she said 'yes, I read your blog on Active Rain. That's why I called your office because I have been following your blog for quite awhile now".
I tried not to appear shocked but form that point on, I began diligently blogging and commenting because that was proof enough for me that Active Rain works!"

"So, today I get a call from Sam. Names are changed to protect the innocent. He’s at the Volvo dealer waiting on his car with mortgage documents from Wells Fargo. Can I come notarize, of course I can. Forty-five minutes later I step into the Volvo customer-service lounge to find a young mother holding an infant peering at me with silver-blue eyes. Sam rounds the corner finishing a cell call from work and introduces the family, wife Sarah and his 3-month old daughter, Jenny. Sam and Sarah agree the dealership is too warm for Jenny, so she's not at her best, but precious enough for me. I try to work when all I really want to do is google with Jenny, “Hi precious! Hi, little poopsie! Aren't YOU a sweetie-pie!” I let out just a few coos. She likes me, smiling in that way that infants do without smiling that means they’re smiling? My heart skips grinning back. She coos, but I go to work. I mean, I don’t want to be Psycho Notary. "Yea, she notarized the docs, but she was way into the kid and we couldn’t get her to leave!" www.PsychoNotary.com. Not so good. Now let’s take a look at these documents. It’s a large loan package. I review them to make sure all tagged are those that require notarization. I find a couple the bank missed. I also advise that we update the notary verbiage to current California standards on two. Gotta get this thing funded. Ok, psycho notary is worth her fee. Sam takes a few more biz calls on the cell. Sarah discreetly nurses Jenny under this big cloak thing that Sam tells me he calls the burqua. Sarah needs to sign. Sam takes Jenny and BURP, Jenny goo-goos in after-meal heaven. Sam floods her with kisses. I consider standing and cheering...too much? Back to work, I stamp affidavits and tell them one last thing, they’ve signed an affidavit, so we need to take an oath. Let’s raise our right hand, as I indicate raising mine. Up goes Jenny’s little hand the size of a quarter, up goes Sam and Sarah’s. We laugh. Invoice paid, glad-to-meet-you’s, hand-shakes. Call me if you have any questions. Sarah says to me out-of-the-blue, so, what’s one of the coolest notary jobs you’ve ever been on? Some people can’t wrap their head around the fact that I’m mobile all day. I tell her that I’ve seen some amazing homes and businesses, I’ve met two beautiful women over the age of 100, inspiring. Wow, she says, not much here at the Volvo place. I don’t know about that, I tell her... Later it occurred to me, the stakes in that little dealership on Santa Monica Blvd, the place that secures the transportation for the loves in Sam's life. Those weren’t mortgage documents, but his family's future. And little Jenny just born 3 months ago... just another notary job? I don’t think so.
