I Got Stumped Today...Like A Football Fumble


This is the last Sunday in 2018 and my last live radio show of the year.



Radio Margaret Rome



After touting how easy it is to refer a buyer or seller to a broker in any state...I suggested to the listening audience to call me and for sure I will know a good agent in any state you can name. 

Well sure...I've been blogging since 2006, spoken to many agents, and was positive that would be an easy task.

But then, my producer hit me with...Arizona.


He was testing me live on the air and  I was caught off guard, I could not match up a member with the state of Arizona. Even though I had the computer in front of me, I forgot how to find members by their states.

Live radio and a fumble like in football!


Baltimore Ravens

(And yes the Ravens won today)


Everyone knows one of my best AR friends is none other than 

anna banana

 Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886

 in  Phoenix Arizona!


It didn't take me long to figure it out BUT...the show was already over!

Never again will I not be able to match a Rainer with their state.


Sorry, Anna was the perfect opportunity to give you some recognition. Don't worry I will make it up next week.

Live radio is not for everyone!
