After a long hiatus from actively posting blog entries, I'm back! My wife and I have been packing, unpacking, and home improving to our hearts' content (and beyond) over these last two months. Long story!... but I went ahead and wrote it all down.
My involvement on ActiveRain.com led me to RainCamp in Houston, TX on December 6th, 2010. That one bright day of industry education and professional networking revolutionized my business model and renewed my motivation, setting me on course to a) build my internet presence and lead production, b) learn from and partner with my real estate colleagues, and c) explore new markets with greater opportunities. The immediately result was that RainCamp inspired me to build a new website and hone my social media outreach to friends and prospective clients. Over the course of the next several months, what I learned at RainCamp helped me realize the need to move from a small, limited rural market to one with greater opportunities to serve.
Through ActiveRain I also met Paula Hamilton, whose blog I enjoyed reading and commenting on. In March of this year I referred to her some friends of my wife's family who were seeking to buy a home in the Humble area. If you know Paula, you know that she is a vibrant, enthusiastic professional with a kind heart and a true talent for real estate; I knew she was the right one to contact! And with her help, my family friends successfully closed on a home at the end of May.
Paula and I discussed my search for a new broker and real estate market, and she graciously extended an offer to join her at Chevaux Group and enter The Woodlands, Texas market! I gladly accepted. She and I are now working together in her office suite in Market Street. I'm excited about the future of this venture! Paula is an exceptional broker, and I bring with me dedication and experience to offer to our clientele.
This past month my wife and I picked up our life in Madisonville, packed it in a moving van, and relocated to an apartment in Grogan's Mill in the south side of The Woodlands. Moving is always an exhausting undertaking, but that hasn't dulled our excitement to make this new beginning- especially since we have a little one on the way (our first) due to arrive in October! What better place to raise a child than here in The Woodlands, where trails, parks, lakes, and green forests surround lovely homes and thriving businesses, creating a unique environment in which life very often takes place outdoor.
I attribute this change of scene first, to God's love and provision, and second, to ActiveRain's friendly network of true professionals, who share with each other for the benefit of all. THANK YOU! ActiveRain staff and fellow Rainers, for making such a difference in my life.
