Bruce Hicks brought back memories that warmed my heart when I read this post. It is so true - without social media (and ActiveRain), we would never have met!
On top of that, even though Jordon Wheeler and I are in the "same" city - we actually are at least 30 minutes apart. Having Bruce visit gave us an excuse to get together. We joined Jordon for a mini-MeetUp and good food near the Atlanta Airport at THIS IS IT!
Another thing Bruce Hicks and I did together was take the online ACRE Designation started by AR member Mollie Wasserman and now shared with real estate professionals by AR member Jennifer Allan-Hagedorn , the SELL WITH SOUL author.
Bruce says that "[Lynn and I have] become very good friends from far away." That is true from my point of view as well. I am grateful to know such a smart, considerate and kind man - and his lovely wife and business partner!
All the best,
Members of Active Rain have been challenged in a most recent blog
I have and am continuing to look for that "SUCCESS" in Real Estate Social Media. Where is that special formula or recipe to make continuous successes?
Several years ago, my wife Vanessa and I went to a series of classes on the Big Island. One was on blogging and another on something new called using FACEBOOK for real estate. For us, that was probably the first introduction to the use of applications to share content over the internet. The content on the wikipedia definition of Social Media will drive you batty. Take the time to especially study the "Prism". Go to Wikipedia and check it out!
Since the subject is your "Biggest Success" I would have to say because of
several Active Rain articles, blogging in this media, brought me together with:
Lynn B. Friedman, and her wonderful husband Murray.

After perusing my AR posted articles, she chose to refer me to her client, a local Hawaii owner. Consequently, we listed and sold the home.
A few years later, that same owner has now hired us to manage another home to rent for them. While travelling through Atlanta, we visited with the Friedmans at their home as well as having a thoroughly enjoyable dinner meeting with Jordan Wheeler, Metro Atlanta
I feel we have become very good friends from far away. That is what I call MY BIGGEST SOCIAL MEDIA SUCCESS STORY!
