2007 Active Rain Year in Review – A Hawaii REALTOR’S® Perspective

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Island Style Realty Inc. RB-19250

                                                                 Active Rain 2007 

I was quite honored to be asked to participate in the 2007 year in review.  2007 is the first complete year for Active Rain.  It was a wonderful year and I look forward to being part of many more with Active Rain.

Many of us find this forum to be such a terrific way of sharing knowledge with other top professionals in the real estate industry and a great way for the public to find us and check us out.

Let's start with some of the 2007 events here on Active Rain that stood out in my mind:

One of the great things about Active Rain has been the willingness of them to continually upgrade the system to make it better and better.

This is the hardest section for me.  I am struggling with which great blog posts from 2007 to list here.  No matter which ones I select I will think of many others I missed.  I do not want to slight anyone here.  I apologize in advance if I missed one of yours that rightfully deserves to be here.  I also reserve the right to add more posts later.  These are in no particular order.

 

 

2007 was a time of much change in the real estate industry.  Active Rain provided us a forum to share tips, tactics and strategies with each other.  I found Active Rain to be an oasis.  After a long day of balancing my business and personal life I could take a break unwind and recharge.

Active Rain also gave me a terrific forum with http://www.localism.com/ so the public could find me and the useful information I had to share.

Just one plug before I sign off.  I hope to see you at the Active Rain Gathering in Honolulu - January 28, 2008.

I want to say MAHALO (thank you in Hawaiian) to everyone responsible for making this the great place it is.  Have a great 2008! 

Hauoli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year in Hawaiian).

Randy, So much information in such a short time! This was an amazing amount of dedication on your part and you did it so well. One of the highlights of this year, was you calling in on the Sunday radio show. That was fun!

Thanks for the mention of my favorite and most fun post!

It was good meeting you at the Palms party.  I wish I were coming out to Hawaii for the get together... but wife will be around 8 months into a 9 month commitment... I can't even think about trying to pull off that trip...

Randy,

Thanks for pointing out your favorite highlights and helping a newbie find some of the more compelling posts without a gargantuan search effort. I may be able to come over to the AR bash on the 28th. Where do i find out more about the CRS activities? I appreciate your consistency and creativity. May 2008 bless you with more of everything good in business and in life.
