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.

What?

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 Banana...it 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!

Hi Margaret- I know what you mean!!!   All great players make fumbles but, like you, they also can have great recoveries.

Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland ,

Hey Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland we all have those moments when our brain freezes up and it's like - huh???  Been there done that more than once over the years.  One time years ago I was teaching a CE class that I knew forwards and backwards and all of a suddent I started teaching another one......thankfully I caught myself fast!!  It was kind of funny!!  I could tell by the look on the students faces - what is she talking about!  LOL.  We just have to laugh at ourselves and move one!

 

Happy New Year!  Love you!!

Carol Williams Never ever forget Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 It was the Arizona that I forgot. Need to figure out how to relate members to their states.

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR It will probably be part of next weeks show now that I remembered how to pull up by states.

Good afternoon Margaret. So....you are human and the mind sometimes wanders. Happy New Year.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886  That stuff happens. I was not expecting to be tested without having my list of states in front of me. There are a couple dozen AZ members that I could have mentioned...with you at the top of course!

Happy New Year, Dear!!

Sheila Anderson Guess you are right. :) Not so much wandering as being caught off guard.

  I really don't think NJ when I see you, or AZ when I see Anna or WA when I see Carol Williams.

When referring, I go to the states and pick my favorite. 

There are only a few members that I associate with there location ie Vegas Bob.

Happy Healthy New Year!

I can quickly think of 4 in Arizona.  Anna Kruchten, Brian England, Sheri Sperry and Jan Green.  But, there are several other states where I would be at a complete loss!

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) 7 months ago

Myrl Jeffcoat And that is a good list! The point on the radio show...I know agents in every state and do...but I need to see the list of members in each state. I was at a loss for the moment. After the show, I remembered how to find the states. I will put the challenge out there next week.

You learn a lot from the fumbles and you learn how to dance better and keep your balance. I know that’s a mixed metaphor, but it still works, I think. :)
