The Pet Project Contest judges have been poring over the hundreds of contest entries and are quite impressed with the level of knowledge of, compassion for and commitment to animal rights and welfare issues that the ActiveRain members have exhibited in their writing.
Over and over, AR members have expressed enthusiasm for the subject and it shows. What may be as interesting as the posts have been the hundreds of supportive comments made by fellow AR members. The sharing, bonding and networking activity has been a joy to observe. We’ve seen members who’d never “met” other members before this contest and can tell that they will seek each other out for other subjects and referrals.
What does this say about a large segment of the real estate professional community in ActiveRain and how might these posts affect the way consumers view those people who work in our industry? In my opinion, these posts speak volumes about the character and caliber of agents and any real estate consumer would be very fortunate to work with them. If nothing else, the Pet Project Contest has shone a brilliant spotlight on the many fine and caring humans who’ve chosen to be advocates in the real estate business process just as they‘ve chosen to fight against cruelty against animals.
I could write a lot more on this topic, but I’d rather hear from those of you who’ve also been reading these wonderful entries. What do you think broadcasting articles like these to the general public and to each other says about us?
Let me hear from you…in the meantime, let me clean my reading glasses and get back to reading those entries. The winners will be announced on Monday, April 30th.
