Congrats - Deborah the Broker - Broke .....

Asked by Sylvia Barry, MAS,CIPS,SRES, Marin, CA Mon Aug 20, 2007

500!!! Just like Barry Bonds (o.K. maybe not that or perhaps not a good comparison -- Being in S.F., I don't want to hear debate about that!!).

I came home from work, started scrolling thru Trulia and saw Deborah's big 500 Number. And all her answers and questions are meaningful (O.K. Disclaimer like a good agent would do - I did not read all her 500 posts, but I can kind of deduct that). So, Deborah, celebrate!

As one of the most predictably great posters on this site, I'm more impressed with the usefulness of those 500 comments. Anyone can churn out 500 one-line comments which add nothing to a subject, but Deborah's are always very well crafted. Considering I find my thoughts often aligned with hers (as well as several others on this forum), I anticipate reading her perspective on the threads that interest me. Even when we differ on a topic, her well reasoned arguments tend to expand my avenues of thought. Much like a certain resident poster from the Sacramento area with the animated picture. Great job, Deborah, and keep blessing consumers and agents alike with your high quality opinions.

I am pretty new here and I have become a fan for Deborah's, not only because of her knowledge and contribution, but also because she is very kind, thoughtful, and always encouraging.

She took the time, sent me note on the side when she saw one of my posts might not be quite appropriate in this forum and explained that to me; and then sent some encouraging note. To think that she really did not know me ---

Truth is, I really don't quite care about her hitting "500", because numbers don't really mean that much unless there is substance behind it; and hers do.

I just want to take the chance to thank her. So, thank you, Deborah!!!

To be sure, there are quite a few others out there like her that we raelly appreciate; and I know a whole bunch more are coming from behind. So keep up with the good work!

Megan, I speculate that Trulia has somehow reached out to Deborah to congratulate her; Paul , Jeanette, Bridgette, Sylvia, Carrie and at least a dozen others.

ON that note I I shall open a mysterious new thread "Does anyone know what the Trulia teddy bear is saying?"

I've listened to it a dozen times and can't figure it out.

WOW is all I can say - and I will echo that Ms. Deb's posts are meaningful, thoughtful, thought provoking, and most of all relevant!

Thanks for taking time out of your obviously busy schedule to bring light to most topics - especially the dicey ones!

Hopefully - someday, somewhere, we can all get together and meet. All the main contributors are awesome - and BTW, Sylvia Barry, Y'aint too shabby yourself!

I do subscribe to the super secret "Deborah post" fan club. I will refrain from painting 500 on my face if you don't mind. You have to love the fan club and the post. Good times. Seriously, your feedback is sincerely appreciated. If you think you have a couple of frivolous posts, I still think your batting average is pretty darn high. Way to go slugger. Enjoy the cocktail.

Congrats Deborah! I was looking at the rating the other day and was amazed that you had as many (or possibly more) most liked/useful answers as you did for just answering. Everyone likes what you have to say. What I found interesting was that the person who had the most responses for that week didn't even list on the top thumbs up ranking. Whereas Paul didn't rank on the most answers but he had the most "Best Answers".

But you better watch out - Jim has 3 best answers this week compared to your 4. Okay, I need to find what off the wall questions got Jim best answer awards.

Sylvia,
Deborah would be too modest to point this out, but the true value of Deborah's post are their relative CONTENT, not their number. I think I've probably read at least 375-400 of them... Congrats D!

Can I have Barry Bonds paycheck? You would not get a debate from me on that.

Well, a few posts maybe frivolous here and there, but only for the purpose of spirit. None of my posts are for the purpose of raising the tally count. Some are long. Some are short.

Going to get a glass of wine now.
Good Night!

I got my bear. Thank you Trulia. I think it says "Trulia a Rock Star"

But a bigger thank you to all of you who responded to this post. Your comments are appreciated more than you will ever know. I look forward to meeting so many of you, and hope we shall have the opportunity.

And, the biggest thanks to Sylvia for starting this thread.

Warmest Regards to Every One of You!!!!

I am so relieved Carrie,
I asked my daughter what she thought the bear was saying and she said it sounded like "you are a Trulia Monstah !!!!" - which in my case, well, um er, lets just say I'm glad it says "rock star!"

Jim,
It says "You are tulia rock star! Have a great day!" I just got my bear today and it was a great surprise! I do have a myspace, but my kids agreed, I am too old! I mostly have it to keep tabs on them! I agree with Bridgette, I too look forward to reading your posts, along with Ruth, Bridgette, Deborah, Sylvia and many more including Paul and Jeanette

Jim,
as I'm sure modesty demands, you've left out YOURSELF! My eyes actually get a mischievous twinkle in them when I see your little cartoon face hop up onto my screen! I cannot wait to read what you have to say! As for kudos to me, they are not well enough deserved as of yet (but thanks anyway--a consolation prize which helps minimize my anonymous "thumbs down" stalker)... Perhaps when my typing improves sufficiently to keep up with my intellect... Till then I remain forever in Deborah's shadow... Have no idea what Trulia teddy bear you are referring to--I'm waiting for that post!
