The ol' juke box is playing all the Goldies... Gold Stars, that is! For the third time this week, we come together as a community to celebrate and to GIVE a BIG round of applause (AKA your comments) to our 1st Place Winner. ..Newbie, LIZ FOLEY
You can tell in the first few minutes you meet her that she is a kind and generous person. You can also tell she's ethical and professional. That's the combination that adds up to make a real estate professional shine. How would I (janeAnne) know this? I looked at the testimonials on her Profile page, and have emailed back-and-forth with her. ..and I read her first BLOG entry...(<that's a hint.)
... a few more hints...
•· She lived in 36 homes by the time she was 36.
•· A REALTOR®, she sees herself as a member of a service-oriented community, with the ability to impact people's opinions, and open doors for them (literally!).
•· Of herself, she says, "I am not ‘green'. Heck, I'm not even in the color spectrum of green, or olive, or pea soup. But I admit it - it is time."
•· Obviously that statement proves that she is very smart and has a clue! (editorial comment from janeAnne ;-))
•·SHE'S A NEWBIE!!!!
The Winner's a Newbie,
The Winner's a Newbie!

"Kermit sure had it right - it DEFINITELY is not easy being "green",
especially in a career that requires marketing (translation: lots and lots of paper),
driving (translation: showings, fuel consumption),
electronic tools (translation: computers, cell phones, PDA's).
So as an admittedly un-green REALTOR®,
what can I do, both personally and professionally, to color me green?
With these words, L:iz opened a conversation in which all of us can participate. Her article, Kermit had it right - it ISN'T easy being green! brings home to all of us in the real estate profession that, as you say, " There are so many other things we can do, and we need to do. Stewardship of this planet we call home is in our hands."
