MARK CALHOUN, REALTOR® (Re/Max First): Real Estate Agent in Oklahoma City, OK MARK CALHOUN, REALTOR® (Re/Max First) said over 10 years ago,
"When I decided to sell my home in Edmond, Oklahoma, I knew that I would need a Realtor that knew the area and Mark Calhoun with Remax/Elite came to mind. Because I had already moved to my new home, I wanted to sell as soon as possible. When neighbors and friends found out that we listed our home on August 19 and the property closed 3 weeks later, they were in awe. Mark priced it right and had complete knowledge of the area. Some of my neighbors still cannot believe it all happened so fast. It has been such a pleasure working with Mark and I would not hesitate one second to recommend Mark Calhoun to anyone selling their home. Francis Schuller"

"Active Rain has given me a whole new look on life in how I viewed our profession. I have NEVER been so overwhelmed, amazed and excited in how willing others give of their time and knowledge! Active Rain has been like my 'preschool' teacher...introduction into the social networking education. It has allowed me to gain knowledge and confidence to further my education and expand out to other networking sites. Anytime I have a question about how to do something...or want more information on a subject...I just go to the 'search' button and walla...there's someone's blog that answers my concerns and curiosity! It is the 'google' of my life!
To me, success is measured in personal growth and experiences I have gained through furthering my education. Active Rain has given me that and SOOOO much more! Thanks Active Rain!"

Hi, Pam!

I LOVE MY HOUSE!!!!! SO MUCH!!!! It really is my favorite place to be. I'm having so much fun putting my rooms (slooooowly) together. Thank you so much for helping me get to this point- I've been bragging to anyone who will listen about my wonderful realtor- I've already passed along some cards.

Charlie was scared to death the first few days- especially of all the slippery wood flooring. He's now pretty well adjusted and already has his favorite spots to roll around in the back yard. The cat hid under the bed for about an hour, but then started exploring and he's helping me find all sorts of nooks and crannies ;)
Yes, I got the check from the Burnetts. I haven't got the home warranty information you were telling me about, though. I also got you card- thank you SO MUCH!!! I attached a picture so you can see what I got- I promise to use it responsibly :))) Lowes and Home Depot are officially my new favorite shopping destinations.

Thanks again for everything!

Take care,

Chris Duhon (Acadian Home Inspection, LLC): Home Inspector in Houston, TX Chris Duhon (Acadian Home Inspection, LLC) said over 10 years ago,
"Chris was super helpful and thorough with the home inspection. He was more than willing to answer all of my questions, and explained what he was doing and how everything worked throughout the inspection. He took the extra time to go over his findings with my husband since he was only able to make it to the end of the inspection. Sufficiently detailed report, and Chris was very good about mentioning all his findings to me during the inspection so that I would understand the issues and how to resolve them. Would definitely recommend his work!"

Exposure on Active Rain has brought even more real estate professionals to us and is helping us introduce our products and services to the many hard working agents across the country who need to carry on through this downturn.
