In Memory of Our Friend, Laurie Manny

By
Real Estate Broker with Keller Williams West Sound Realty

laurie-mannyToday I received the very sad news that ActiveRain veteran Laurie Manny was found dead in her home in Southern California.

Laurie was one of the more prolific writers on ActiveRain and was instrumental in it's rapid growth and success in the early days of it's inception.

Laurie served as one of the first volunteer moderators along with Mark Flanders and Colleen Kulikowski, and was responsible for featuring member articles on the blog dashboard, and providing development suggestions to the ActiveRain staff.

Laurie was a pioneer in social media circles and was one of the first real estate professionals to effectively incorporate blogging into her marketing efforts. She understood SEO and how hyper-local content could be leveraged to generate business leads and foster relationships with her readers.

A trip down memory lane:

This network owes much of its success to the valued contributions of Laurie Manny. Her expertise, humor, and friendship will be sorely missed!

What a shock!  I knew Laurie for several years and eventually wound up working for her briefly as a buyer's agent.  She was the "most unforgettable character I have ever met!"  Nobody like her.  I will miss her and my condolences and prayers go out to her family.  Dare I say, wherever she is, she is making an impact!Love you, Laurie.
