Place your bets please!

It appears to be a six horse race for the next Active Rainer to cross the 100,000 point mark.  Currently (as of this blog post) we have the following in the race (those over 80,000 points).

Brian Brady 90,975

Jim Lee 90,090

Tony Marriott (Yours Truly!) 89,695

Lawrence Yerkes 87,145

Mark Flanders 83,753

Rich Jacobson 82,894

Just over a thousand point separates the first 3, while Mark and Rich (currently 5 & 6) are locked in a struggle for supremacy in Washington, which means they are both picking up the pace.

So - who will be the next across the line?

My crystal ball predicts the following "order of finish" - "finish" meaning crossing the 100,000 threshold - not finished with Active Rain!

  1. Brian Brady
  2. Tony Marriott
  3. Jim Lee
  4. Rich Jacobson
  5. Mark Flanders
  6. Lawrence Yerkes

It will be interesting (to me anyway) to see how accurate this prediction turns out to be.  Of course - I could always come with a strong late challenge,  Brian - look out!!

Somehow - I have a sneaking suspicion - that this is a decoy intended for Brian Brady - you are up to something!
Posted by Suzanne Marriott, Associate Broker, CLHMS, e-PRO (Keller Williams Arizona Realty) over 13 years ago
what are the odds on Jim Lee? He's my pick. Go get em Jim

I'm not in the blogging for point race; good luck to you Tony.
Posted by Jim Lee, Portsmouth NH Realtor, Portsmouth, NH (RE/MAX Shoreline) over 13 years ago
Jim is 2-1 - and may surprise the rest of us!
Posted by Suzanne Marriott, Associate Broker, CLHMS, e-PRO (Keller Williams Arizona Realty) over 13 years ago
My vote goes for Marky Mark. The guy is a Point Animal! But Mr. Brady is a most admirable foe. I wouldn't be surprised to see him first at the finish line. I can tell you one thing. It wont' be me! My wife has me in AR Rehab these days!

10,000 points, wow a lot could happen.  I could even sell some of my points.  They are just laying around not being used.

Can I place an exacta bet on the finish?
Posted by Randy Prothero, Hawaii REALTOR, (808) 384-5645 (eXp Realty) over 13 years ago

Point contests normally result in really crappy Blogs or comments...EVEN from extraordinary members.

My bet.....no bet.

Looks like there is a conspiracy out there to convert signatures to Active Rain font!  Perhaps this is a more important goal than points....I must investigate further!

Randy - Of course you may - when you're in Vega$ they will let you bet on pretty much anything!  See you there at the end of the month.

Rich - How long does the treatment prgram run? :-)
Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago
Jim - You're doing really well considering points aren't part of the picture! :-)
Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago
Rob - Just checked out your blog.  I agree.
Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago
However, I'll take the 25 for saying thanks.
Posted by Rob Robinson- Lehigh Valley PA (Bertrum Settlements (Title & Abstract)) over 13 years ago
Rob - You are most welcome!
Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago

I get inspired every now and then and post a lot. ;-)

The fruit du jour for this reply is "Plum"; I like plums especially Plum jelly.

Jim - I'm not very big on Gooseberrys - which is what AR has offered me for this reply!
Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago

Gooseggs is what you actually get for shameless comment blogging on your own post.

Moi, on the other hand................................. ;-)

Posted by Jim Lee, Portsmouth NH Realtor, Portsmouth, NH (RE/MAX Shoreline) over 13 years ago

Jim, really?

 

(+25)

Posted by Rob Robinson- Lehigh Valley PA (Bertrum Settlements (Title & Abstract)) over 13 years ago
Rob - I think there is a minimum length (12 words?) to have the comment score points - but I could be wrong - it's happened before - and Jim is correct - no Points for comments on my own post!
Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago
So as I undertand it, I need to type twelve words. Hhhhmmmm.....
Posted by Rob Robinson- Lehigh Valley PA (Bertrum Settlements (Title & Abstract)) over 13 years ago

Rob - Perfect!

Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago

Yep, just twelve little words gets you twentyfive big points. What a deal! ;->

And you can also throw in the fruit validation word for good measure: "Apricot"

No bonus points for extra words.

Posted by Jim Lee, Portsmouth NH Realtor, Portsmouth, NH (RE/MAX Shoreline) over 13 years ago

Hmmmm.... Inspiring challenge I must say but not sure if we're the gambling types.  All candidates are superstars to AR!

Good luck to all!

HUH! I offer to SELL my points and get totally ignored.  Guess I'll pack up my post and take it elsewhere...

Kristal - what we really want is the AR font!
Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago
KRISTAL!!!....I was just packing the U-Haul so I could drive out and bring back some of your points!
Posted by Rich Jacobson, Your Kitsap County WA Real Estate Broker (Fathom Realty West Sound) over 13 years ago
Tony - the AR Rehab program is tailored specifically to the extent of your addiction. In my case, there will be intensive in-patient treatment for several weeks, involving shock therapy every other day.
Posted by Rich Jacobson, Your Kitsap County WA Real Estate Broker (Fathom Realty West Sound) over 13 years ago

Show me the money!

OK!

I'm showing you the money!

Where's the font?  Said in the spirit of the old Wendy's commercial - Where's the beef?!

Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago

Sorry not enough.

How about this then?

And for good measure Money, Money, Money!!

Initially I thought to put my money on the Marriott AR Recruiting Machine, but then I realized Matt hasn't awarded points for Localism communities yet, and I know the guys in Washington have been really busy pumping out the local content. I think it's going to be an extremely tight race with all three going over 100K within a 48 hour period, with just a slight edge to Tony.
Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) over 13 years ago
Well, I just passed 100K and you have 148K.  Good Lord!  What did you do, upload 2000 pictures?
Posted by Brian Brady, 858-777-9751 (San Diego VA Home Loans/858-777-9751) over 13 years ago
Nope!  But I built one heck of a lot of neighborhoods!
Posted by Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers, Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty (Serving the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale Metropolitan Area) over 13 years ago
I have kindly deferred my place to my distinguished mortgage specialist partner. Mark will break 100K this week. I'm still at least a week away.
