Who is the Most Awesome Person Today?

  My Version of ActiveRain's Daily "Member Spotlight" (Part XIV)

Who is the most awesome person today?

It's that time of the week again folks!

As promised, I've decided to make 2011 a year in which I introduce you, my dear readers, to a Rainer who you might not know, but probably should.

ActiveRain posts a "Member Spotlight" in their "Daily Drop" newsletter. This is my version...

For this week's post, that person is ActiveRain's very own:

  Jeff Dowler

Jeff Dowler - The Most Awesome Person of the Day!

For those of you who don't know Jeff, let me be among the first to tell you that this is one dude (Jeff calls himself the "Relocation Dude") here in the Rain who knows how to write a Localism post. In fact, if you want to know what a Localism post should look like, you need to go and check out some of his blogs.

Jeff is not only a great Realtor who works, lives and plays in the Carlsbad, CA area, he has a great outlook on life and subscribes to a "No Doom and Gloom" attitude that can clearly be evidenced in his blog posts.

 Although he's at the top of his game now,

Jeff wasn't always a top notch Realtor... 

In fact, Jeff's first claim to fame came when he won the annual Carlsbad, CA watermelon eating contest at the age of 8...

Jeff Dowler wins the Carlsbad, CA Annual Watermelon Eating contest at the young age of 8!

And even though Jeff found notoriety for his gastronomic feats, he wasn't ready for a life of fame and glory selling Real Estate.

Jeff got his first "taste" of Real Estate when he paid his way through college by helping to market a famous East coast Real Estate agent....

Jeff Dowler got his first

Jeff soon realized that he had a knack for marketing and selling things. So he did what just came naturally for him. He began helping people buy and sell Real Estate.

Getting started wasn't as easy as he thought. So to help make some money, Jeff sold off his vintage Star Trek lunch box collection....

The Jeff Dowler Vintage Star Trek Lunch Box!

Soon the money started rolling in and Jeff is now one of the top agents in the Carlsbad, California area!

The rest, as the story goes, is history!

Anyway folks, if you aren't already subscribed to Jeff's blog you need to go and do that right now. We'll wait. (insert Jeopardy theme here as we wait for you to return.)

I haven't had the opportunity to meet Jeff...yet. But we've been subscribed to one another's blogs for what seems like forever. And, when I do get the opportunity to get out to the left coast, hooking up with Jeff is one of my top priorities.

Jeff is one of the folks here in the Rain that I'm really looking forward to meeting someday. I respect him, I enjoy his posts, and I consider Jeff Dowler my friend.

And, because he's my friend, Jeff gets to wear the "Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater" this week!

Jeff Dowler - The Most Awesome Person of the Day!

Here's to you Jeff Dowler, the "Most Awesome Person of the Week"!

Next week's spotlight will be on.... YOU!

Yes, you!

Craig, I don't read Jeff as much as I should, but as the leader in Localism as noted, he is next for a subscription. That probably means I may have to drop one, Hmmmmm, now who could that be?

Lenn - I'd debate you if I felt you said anything I didn't agree with here. But you summed it up perfectly. Jeff is a class act.

Robert - I'll pass on your sentiments Robert. Thanks for stopping on by and taking the time to comment.
