Midori Miller and Jeannette Neerpat-The Next Evolution Finally Meet!

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes Realty - BH Referral Associates

Mom and Dad renewed their vows and it was such a beautiful event.  As my father kissed the bride..it was just another reminder..that life is good...but definitely not easy. 

50 years...7 children....11 grandchildren...and still so in love with one another.  As they took their stroll down the isle...I don't think there was a dry eye in sight and my excitement grew knowing Jeannette would be here.

As I was getting my father a plate a food.  I felt a tap on my shoulder.  It was Jeanette and her son Andrew, have you ever seen her?  Well she is a cutie pie and none of her photo's or her avatars do her justice.  She's a beauty inside and out.

We sat and talked but not for long.  There is a tradition when dad meets my girl friends.  No and's...but's and or's about it.  You see my father is faithful to one woman but I gotta tell you he is an equal opportunity kind of guy.  He loves beautiful women and Jeannette was no exception.  Fella's envy him..because it seems most of the girls are eager to kiss him!  Once again Jeannette was no exception!

 

We did manage to talk about the challenge and got a lot of small talk in.  I took a video with the flip video.. Hey, I want one of those!  Much better than my camera and very easy to use. 

I tested the iphone..and I have to say..it makes my treo feel like a hunk of junk.  The iPhone I love and  to me a great piece of technology.

While both of us have previous engagements and will not be able to attend Inman..we will both be at NAR 

So here is what I learned about my apprenticeJeannette is no different from me..it seems the tasks pile in our lives just gets bigger and bigger BUT I will say we both welcome it and she is no different.

Her warmth is extraordinary, she is a nice person, a good person BUT tough. She is social and accomodating and tells it like it is..No wonder her real estate career is flourishing.

She isn't petty or sweats the small stuff..she is focused..she is driven and a go getter.  These are the traits needed to be a great real estate professional. 

 

While we only had about 2 hours together..it really didn't matter...we talk at least 3 times every single day.  She has become one of my very close friends, one of the many benefits of participating in this contest.

While the Makeover2Takeover ran for 8 weeks...I told her..I'll be watching you...and she has an idea that the mentoring will continue on!  To me its been a very challenging 8 weeks, a very stressful 8 weeks but 8 weeks that has changed both our lives.  

If ever you get the chance to partake in a contest..don't sit on the sidelines...don't make fun of it..participate and you will see. 

The Makeover2Takeover contest...was about increasing business and productivity..these tasks weren't just homework or just things to do...while some would say they had no time for it...these tasks have already enhanced and changed both mine and Jeannette's business..and truthfully...these tools should already be in place. 

The great thing for us..we had the opportunity to enhance them and got fresh new ideas.  Fresh enough to sell some real estate.

Activerain...I gotta hand it to you!  Just another reason why I love this network and to think..not only have I gained new skills and fresh ideas but made some incredible friends along the way!

Diane-I Jeannette and I will be friends forever..unless of course we fail miserably on this challenge. LOL..no pressure.  The pressure is on me...she loves video and me...I can live without it!  That is me personally doing it.

Joan-I got a lot out of the chain of events on Sunday..I attended the sermon..it was about marriage..and effort and committment..then my parents 50 and you can see it was very heartwarming and inspirational and then meeting Jeannette and sharing this very special occasion with her!

Aaww. So sweet. Quick question though... Re: the Flip Cam. I was asking one of my tech geek friends about them last night. He said the quality isn't the greatest and they won't last long before they break. Any personal experience with them?

Lisa-I spent way to much money on my camera/video and I have trouble manuevering it.  That video was from my treo..I left my camera in Pt. St. Lucie at my brother's house.  The quality is very nice with the flip and have no personal experience as to how long the camera will last.  For me it was easy to use and very self explanatory.  If I were to buy a new camera it would probaby be the flip.  I need to keep it simple!  Jeannette used it for the last challenge and it came out really nice!

I'm so happy that the two of you finally got to meet.  I'm sure you were both exactly or better than each had thought.  Sounds like you have a life long friendship, which is a wonderful side advantage to active rain.  Liz
