Localism at Work...Active Rain is Not Just About Real Estate

About an hour ago I called Tina Merritt, a fellow member of Active Rain.  I needed help. Tina came to mind Tina Merrittbecause I know she knows her area. Reading her posts taught me that.

I contacted Tina because I had a call from my brother-in-law in Connecticut.  Bill  is trying to find someone that was flying to Haiti and had a medical emergency in flight.  The plane landed in Norfolk, VA and the passanger was taken to a hospital.

Bill is a pastor of a church in Wallingford, CT and has done extensive work in Haiti.  The passenger taken sick is someone that was going down to Haiti as a volunteer.

Bill thought I might be able to help him locate the hospital where the passenger was taken.  When you Google hospitals in Norfolk you will find several.  I knew immediately that Tina would be able to give me the name of the closests ones.  Sure enough that is exactly what happened.

It felt good to know that I had a resource that knew Norfolk.  Once I realized that, I also realized that I have resources across the country including the special ones in Alaska and Hawaii.  That is what Active Rain has given me and each of you.

REALTORS® know their area like few others.  Think about it.  They become our combination Yellow Pages and Google maps.

REALTORS® are the local experts...and you can call them when all the government and Chamber of Commerce offices are closed up tight for the night or week-end.

I also knew I could call Tina because I know that REALTORS® are helpers.  That is what we do.  We provide information and services.  We problem-solve. There was no doubt in my mind that Tina would do what she could for me.

I was right.
