The Best Posts Never Read Part 1

By
Real Estate Agent with Prominent Realty Group

Well here is the first version. I found so many good posts that deserved attention that I've decided to break it up into a weekly (or so depending) post, kind of like a week in review type of thing. If any of you have put out an exceptionally well written post, great information, funny, etc that never really sees the light of day, send me the url. I'll take a look and consider it for a future post. Here are my top ten best posts never read:

Katrina - its been awhile and people are still homeless there and trying to put their lives back together. This post by Eric Bouler tells about a Katrina survivor and her challenges: http://activerain.com/blogsview/101476/Lets-count-our-blessings

SEO - this is a post I put up about the supplemental index in google. I see people are still confused about it:

http://activerain.com/blogsview/Real-Estate-SEO-Supplemental-Results?3854

Real Estate - this post is by John Evarts with his idea on how to raise the bar for our own industry:

http://activerain.com/blogsview/55588/Would-you-trust-the

This post by Jason Sardi is a must read for every agent:

http://activerain.com/blogsview/52473/My-Greatest-Mistakes

Ethics - Jeff Belonger wrote this great post and cited a few others about ethics:

http://activerain.com/blogsview/104235/The-Golden-Rule-how

Freedom - this post was put up by Irene Gaffigan and was originally written by CDR Kelly Strong, USCG retired and I think that today it is very appropriate:

http://activerain.com/blogsview/108584/No-Freedom-Isn-t

Realtor legalities - this post is by Lisa Hill and tells how things are supposed to go:

http://activerain.com/blogsview/88728/How-Realtors-Represent-Their

Overpricing - http://activerain.com/blogsview/94771/Overpriced-Listings-are-the This one is a bit of stretch since it does have quite a few comments, but I think a lot people missed it first go around.

Words to live by - this post was put up last year by Louann Nudi. Its some good advice when dealing with a client: http://activerain.com/blogsview/The-Gambler-s-Wisdom?4977

Safety - this post is fairly recent, yet everyone should read it. Being a realtor can be a dangerous job (which didn't seem to come up on the redfin piece either..hmmm) Safety is a huge concern and should never be taken lightly: http://activerain.com/blogsview/108396/MD-Realtor-found-shot

Hi Jacqulyn, Great Idea, what you are doing.

I should know better than to do what I just did. I had a full message to you already done but needed the comments I posted to Jason Sardi about what something I thought was good but never saw the light of day was. I wrote Dear Jason... The blog experts tell me it has to be interesting ( building a business plan is about as interesting as watching mudd dry) , a bit of humor to get their attention ( the only possible humor would be that the last 3 years years production would be funny -if it weren't so sad) and the post should be short and an easy read ( my post is too complicated and long in the tooth).

My post was obviously about building a business plan in 4 parts. It never caught the imagination of AR participants.

Charles - you did a great job on this and it must have taken a lot to time judge these posts.  They are very informative and should prove helpful to many AR members as well as site visitors.
