VICKIE NAGY - TELEVISION STAR

 

Vickie Nagy - Television Star.  I turned on the TV this evening to find out if the government was shutting down.  A commentator was talking about the distress local federal worker were experiencing waiting for Congress and the President to act so that there would not be a government shut down.

This is a very difficult time for many people.   The commentator was talking to a young woman whose loan, for the purchase of her new home, was going to be withdrawn and she would lose that home if the government shut down.  The young woman was very distressed.  As I watched, I saw a familiar face.    Vickie Nagy, the young woman's agent, spoke.  She was poised, intelligent and calm as she spoke with the commentator about the possible lost of her client's purchase. 

 

I was very proud of her, as if she were a close friend, although I only know her through ActiveRain.  I always read her comments and blogs.  She seems eminently competent and her comments and blogs are insightful and interesting to read.

 

I really, really love ActiveRain for many reasons. The great information and tips I pick up from everybody.  The nerds who share all their valuable techie information.  All the knowledge Rainers have and share freely is astounding.  But the best thing about ActiveRain is the feeling that I am a part of a community and we are family.  That's why I was so proud of Vickie.  She is a good representative of us.

Hello Evelyn, thanks for the kind words. I have not yet had an opportunity to see the clip as it aired while I was out showing homes.

Active Rain makes this country a smaller place, and we find reason to like people we've never met in person. That's got to be a good thing.

I have had an email exchange with another local 'Rainer this morning about the newsclip. This is my thrid time on air at KGO ABC 7. The first reporter found me due to web presence. Then the first gave my name to a second. When I met him yesterday I told him I wanted to be his 'go-to-' east bay real estate resource. Fingers crossed.

Eveyln - this is the same kind of relationship you will build on Facebook and Twitter.  You can build even deeper relationships for referrals!  Congrats!

Thanks for your comment.  I didn't join ActiveRain to develop relationships, but I am finding that that is exactly what I am doing.  I have discovered so many Rainers who I value even thought I have never met them.

Many of my buyers had the same worries that if the government shut down what was going to happen to their loans and home purchase. Could they lose their earnest money and inspection costs because of it. I'm glad it didn't happen, but I do still have to wonder if they buyers would have had recourse against the government if it had happened.

What a mess that would have been.  Thank heaven we and our clients did not have to deal with.  Frustrating for a lot of people.  Thank you for your comment.

Dear Evelyn,

You said: "But the best thing about ActiveRain is the feeling that I am a part of a community."

I really agree with you!  While I had no inkling that it would happen, I began to form friendships online.  During my travels, I have made it a point to meet some of my online friends and mentors. Check out the group ARups for meeting others.

Best of luck to you !  It seems you (Alameda, CA) and I (Atlanta, GA) and Elizabeth Byrne (Arlington,VA) all started around the same time!  2011 newbies! 

I have a sense that I
both have been doing this forever and that magically the world changed around me since I joined AR online.

Have a happy day -
Lynn

It so exciting that we get to know each other so quickly.  I love ActiveRain for that reason.  I have read both your blog and Elizabeth's blog.  Very good stuff.  Let's show AR that we are good additions to the rain.  Thank you so much for your wonderful comment.  Keep in touch.  I am going to subscribe to your blog right now.  Take care and have a nice week.
