Isn't that amazing - do we know who it was? Can we throw confetti and spaghetti?

Posted by Jo Olson, HOMEFRONT Realty @ LAKE Roosevelt - Stevens County (HOMEFRONT Realty) over 9 years ago

This is the Party I called for in one of my Post!  Go ahead interview number 150,000, I want pictures.  This is a big deal.  Of course the way things are rolling along I see 200,000 soon.

confetti and spaghetti

shouldn't that be rice? 


I invited someone recently... local, with my widdle widget.

Posted by Maureen McCabe, Columbus Ohio Real Estate (HER Realtors) over 9 years ago

I deserve most of the credit. My super good looks, connection with Jason Crouch and amazing localism talent has a lot to do with this...

Hi Jer!  I noticed that this morning!  I was teaching a class yesterday at our Association and commented that 'over 150K people can't be wrong' about using this fabulous venue to begin their real estate blogging experience.  It truly does PAY big rewards! 

Congrats to AR for the new milestone!

Jeremy... and I can remember when I joined, that there were only about 3,500 members... I remember when 10,000 was a big deal... lol  I just wonder how many, out of the 150,000, participate. In any case, this is huge... congrats to all at Active Rain that make this possible... and yes, truly a great site for networking and business.  thanks

With all due respect Jeremy there are a LOT among the ranks who are basically dead wood -- they have left the business, or they have duplicate identities, or posted a couple things more than a year ago. At some point it would be good to clean out the dead wood. Our 2 cents.

Posted by Bob & Carolin Benjamin, East Phoenix Arizona Homes (Benjamin Realty LLC) over 9 years ago


i can't beleive I missed the 150,000 # turn over1  I've been watching/waiting to see who/when it would occur and I missed it!.... Anyway, congrats!

Now all of us who particpated in Gerry's contest to win 5000 points by guessing the number of members as of January 1, 2010 can watch the counter to see how things go from now till then.  I am pleased to be able to stop guessing and figuring and redoing my guesses.  It was wearing me out!
