Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: 200,000 Points- A Year and a Half in the Making!

200,000 Points- A Year and a Half in the Making!

With my last blog of the 2007 Dallas Ft Worth sales numbers, I passed the 200,000 point milestone. 

I knew I was in the 190's and was watching for a while, but it seemed like it was moving very slow, and I stopped paying attention.  I noticed 198k a couple of days ago, but I didn't realize I was almost there until I woke up with an email from Meg Zoller letting me know she's been watching and congratulated me because she knows I'm going to hit 200,000 today.

I am one of the original Rainers from back in June of 2006 (maybe is was May).  But, being a member for that long doesn't mean too much about the points as there are many people who have more points who haven't been members for as long. 

What has happened since June 2006?  With all my blogging, and AR working their SEO magic, I can't even tell you how many appointments and transactions I need to thank AR for.  Yes, I always ask people how they find me, but many don't know or can't explain what keyword search they used or what site they ended up on, but I know I've made thousands directly because of AR.

THANK YOU, ACTIVE RAIN, FOR A PLACE WHERE I CAN MAKE MY OPINIONATED SELF KNOWN!
