Meme'd in Maryland

If you have never heard the term "meme", you're not alone.  As far as I know, it is unique to ActiveRain.  let me briefly explain - Another member of the ActiveRain Community "tagged" me to share 5 things about myself with others in the network, so here goes: 

My philosophy - It's all about YOU-YOU-YOU.  If I always put YOU first, we'll both always win.  Try it... it works!  (Note: This is the exact opposite of me-me.)   

My life - No drama, no adventure, no secret dreams or passions to reveal here on ActiveRain.   ‘Been there, ‘done that, and survived.  I won't bore you with the details because you're probably living them now, as I once did.  If you live long enough, you might someday be content like me.  

My family - ‘Wish I could put them on my resume, because nothing makes me prouder.   Married for 40 years (July 15), four children, three grandkids and two more on the way.  Everyone is healthy, happy, and successful with no ongoing family dramas to report.  Yawn...

My career -  ‘Started out as an elementary school music teacher, but San Diego didn't have music/art teachers when my husband was transferred there in ‘68, so I got a job in a real estate office.  The rest, as they say, is history.  I still have a perfect record for no fall-throughs and no complaints to the Association or Real Estate Commission during my career as an agent, a branch manager, a broker of record, a title company owner, and a trainer/mentor to literally thousands of agents.

My home - ‘Born in D.C., raised in Maryland, and lived in Crofton since 1971.  We're in our 5th house in the community, having started out with a townhouse, moved up twice, and down twice.  Lol.   We must like it here!  You will often see "I LOVE Maryland" in my email or blog signature for that very reason.


Okay, Mr. Belonger, you asked for my meme and you got it.  Now, I'm supposed to tag three more people, so here goes: 

Katie Landon, the first person that I invited to ActiveRain - I met Katie first as a prospective home buyer, then she worked as my part-time assistant, and now she's a REALTOR in Rehobeth Beach, Delaware.  I know she'll love ActiveRain, and maybe this will help her get started.

Lauren Corna, the #1 featured agent in Tarrant County, Texas.  We don't know each other, but my daughter just relocated to your area and she's going to be needing a real estate agent...

Kathy Manigrasso, another ActiveRainer from Tarrant County, Texas - Your profile is warm, friendly, brief... and it makes me want to get to know you.
