The Official ActiveRain Guide

The Real Estate Industry - It's not Just a Job, It's an Adventure!

I'm excited to announce that I am taking on a new role and change in the Real Estate Industry!  

Over the past few years in my role as Community Manager for ActiveRain, I've learned so much and grown in so many ways.  During this time my role has included helping many thousands of people and that work has been immensely rewarding and exciting.  However, I am now moving to a new place with my career. 

To all my friends at ActiveRain, a big "Thank You" for all your love, support and friendships over the past few years.  I also want to thank the staff and my good friends here inside ActiveRain for all their hard work, and for the passion that they sweat into this network each and everyday.  It's been a wonderful learning experience.  Getting to witness the growth and changes on AR has been an honor and privilege.

I feel blessed to have so many great friends and such a truly authentic extended family here. 

I look forward to telling you all about this new challenge that I have accepted in the days ahead.  I'd spill the beans right now, but I have to head out the door... I'm running off to get married in a couple weeks. Then ActiveBrad's spending his honeymoon in some untold locations.  I am not leaving the AR network or all of my friends and family here, I'm just merging onto a different road up ahead and creating a new and exciting path.

So wish me luck, I'm looking forward to YOUR future as I plan to still be part of it.  :-)

The rest of the scoop coming soon ...to be continued

No matter the path you travel, make a difference in the world and enjoy the Journey...

Brad,

It was great fun seeing you & your wife & kids performed last December Raincamp in SF...so imagine my surprise when I saw your post early this morning with the "running off to get married in a couple of weeks". I am glad you clarified for us :-) Now just have to wait anxiously for part 2of your blog.

Congratulations!!! Have fun in your second honeymoon!

Brad, I wish I read the comments first before I went over to FB to check out you getting married ...again!  Congrats on the renewal!!  That means a lot!   It definitely sounds like you are going elsewhere with your career. You have been an Icon here at AR. I wish you well:)

Posted by Gerry Michaels, GettysburgGerry Social Meida (Glasswork Media Arts) over 7 years ago

WOW!!  Thanks again for all the comments and support everyone, you've got me a bit emotional and overwhelmed!!   

I will still be crusing around the community and posting here on ActiveRain.... Gosh, I wish I were able to tell you more but right now we're still in the middle of finalizing all the details. 

Thanks for your patience and understanding, I'm sure there will be a press release coming out shortly and I will also put a post up here on my AR blog (with a link in the comments here for TLW :-D ) 

I'm really excited and looking forward to making a formal announcement about the "new adventure" in the days ahead. 

Gotta run now.....  luy ya all! 

PS. The wife and I will also be sharing some of our "Re-Marriage" Vows and "Honeymoon" photos when we return...  :-)

Hi Brad,

I've been pondering my response to this post for a couple of days (I'm sure you saw that I've stopped by on MyBlogLog) but, just seem to have a bit of writer's block where the topic of YOU leaving AR is concerned.  You have been such an inspiration to me for several years now.  Your undying enthusiasm, unwavering passion for our business and your generosity as a friend, both in and out of the Rain, have been appreciated more than you'll ever know.  

Reading your post, I know you're happy and believe me, I'm incredibly happy for you too but, I am selfishly going to miss you here.  You have taught us SO much and your patience with the multitude of emails that you've answered (just from me alone!) have me wondering who will ever have the bandwidth to fill that void here.  

I never quite understood how you managed the massive amount of emails that I know you received AND produced such informative posts AND managed the newsletter AND featured posts AND all of the phone calls from us whenever ANYTHING went wrong with ActiveRain--forget about those who entered contests, demanding immediate point gratification!  (Hopefully I never sent you one of those emails!  LOL)  

You certainly could not have had the time that, knowing you, was most important for you to have--time with your wonderful family.  Debra is very lucky to be renewing vows with you (and, yes, she is lucky to have you too--despite what you say, she IS)!  I'm a hopeless romantic so, besides witnessing Bob & Christa's wonderful relationship unfolding here and then being able to see it person in Dallas, I left there with one of THE most romantic stories--from YOU.  Your eyes were just gleaming when you were telling your Valentine's Day story--the way you spoke about Debra was so refreshing and oh, so heart-warming!  You're both very fortunate to have each other and congratulations on your vow renewal and your 'secret' second honeymoon.  

In closing, I do hope that you'll keep in touch and let us know what path you'll be taking following your honeymoon.  We all love you and will miss you here but, wish you only the best--because that's what you deserve.  You've paid it forward enough for 1,000 people so, I'm SURE it's going to be an exciting, rewarding position!

Thanks again everyone.

@Debe - I have received over 46,930 comments in the past couple years and I'd have to put yours up there at the top as one of the nicest and most thoughtful I have ever received.  Not that every comment doesn't mean the world to me, but yours was just very very sweet.  Thank you so much for acknowledging my efforts here and don't worry, I will still be around, just not in the same capacity that you were used to. 

I am leaving on Tuesday to wrap up all the details, then the word will most likely slip out.  I can't wait to get started and share with everyone what I'll be doing. It's going to be fun, exciting, and some really good times ahead!!

Hang in there for the BIG announcementok, just a few more days.....    :-)  Thanks again Debe, you're one of the bestest!

Hi Brad,

You probably don't remember, we met at one of the very first RainCamps in Portland (before you cut off your pony tail). And at one of the RainCamp which was held in Bellingham more recently. We have also emailed back and forth a few times over the past two few years but I know there are 10's of thousands of us that you have touched.

So, your leaving to? Sounds like it is a happy occasion and I wish you the best.

You expressed your thanks for the AR community and I want you to know that your contribution was also greatly appreciated as well. I have subscribed to your blog for a long time and find your insight valuable and have enjoyed our limited encounters. I will keep watching to see where you are headding.

Best of luck.
