What A Surprise!
As I am getting ready to go to sleep I was lured by the Siren call of my computer, which was making Zebra noises from within Google Reader.
I look and see is a post on NARWisdom about Daniel Rothamel entitled “The Zebra Teaches History On Realtor Mag Blog” which links to “Shouldn’t We All know more about REALTOR History” written for Realtor Magazine’s Blog Speaking of Real Estate. Now I am really excited – I like history and I like Daniel – AND I already read the book he was talking about – it has lots of pictures -and is really an incredibly interesting and rather honest recounting of what the REALTOR organization has done over the years.
If You Don’t Read
I was torn about adding the following link, to one of the two Videos about the History of the Organization (you can see the other part of the video on the new page that opens up there) because I reallywant everyone to read Daniel’s take on the History of the Organization, and maybe even get motivated to buy the book, or at least borrow a copy somewhere and read it. But I can’t help sharing the video- As I said earlier, I really like history, and the fact that THE Zebra, a Young technologically astute REALTOR is sharing his experience discovering that there is a lot of interesting back story to the organization is thrilling! (Geeze, I really need to get a life -)
Credit Where Due
Kudos to the Zebra, to NarWisdom for writing the post I caught, and Daniel , if you have the time and are planning to attend the May meetings in Washington an invitation for the lunch or drink of your choice – or if not there, when I get to meet you in person some time in the future – In the mean time a tip of my virtual hat as I raise my virtual drink to toast you and your new history class – Gotta Go now – I’m out of Virtual Hands!
