Does It Always Have To Be About Real Estate?

Does It Always Have To Be About Real Estate?

 

 

Speaking with AR member Marco Giancola this morning, I discovered we have similarities. We have both  been REALTORS ®  for the past 26 years, we both enjoy learning and  we both enjoy connecting with other agents of all ages. Marco is interested in the recent course CNE that I took with another member .

 

And then I found out about Marco's  love of architechture and painting.

When asked if he shared this passion on ActiveRain,  his response...No, he feels he should keep the conversation to real estate.

 

To say I disagree would be an understatement. People want to know about us. People want to connect with others like us.

 We talked about his art  

  and mine.

Since Marco does abstract art, I asked if he knew Marti Garaughty who designed the cover of my book.

Take a look at the blog Marco wrote after our conversation

 And He Paints Too.

 

So I ask....
