River racers row against rain, Goyette, MacGregor take overall win

ROCHESTER — The on again, off again torrential downpour on Monday didn’t deter competitors in the Rochester Memorial Day Boat Race. It may even have helped them along.

Monday race saw several boats shaving minutes off of last year’s times, and two new champions.

“We’ve had nothing for water. The river was wicked low,” said Ian MacGregor of his practices leading up to the race with partner Jake Goyette. “Now…you have tons of water, it’s like night and day.”

MacGregor a Rochester native who now lives in Acushnet and Goyette, a Rochester resident, took home the overall first place prize, unseating three-time winners Dan Lawrence and William Watling III.

MacGregor and Goyette, in boat 6, finished with a time of 1:52:14, more than two minutes ahead of the reigning champs.

The win comes after narrowing the gap between themselves and Lawrence and Watling in the past several years.

The timed race, which begins at Grandma Hartley’s Pond in Rochester and ends at the Mattapoisett Herring Weir, is a tradition among many in the area and is plenty of friendly competition.

The guys in boat 6 were once competitors themselves, each rowing with their fathers. When their dads retired, the two teamed up and have rowed together for five years.

They said this year’s weather and water conditions took some expertise.

“You never know what’s going to happen,” said Goyette. “You had to know what you were doing.”

Still a little stunned by their victory, the guys weren’t sure what comes next for them.

Joked MacGregor, “Now what do we do? Do we retire?”

Lawrence and Watling came in second overall with 1:54:35 followed by Jay Lawrence and Andy Weigel in third with 1:55.

The race is sponsored by the Rochester Fire Department.

The race is always a favorite of BOLD Moves Real Estate and the MacGregor family.  They have been participating in the race for many years.   This year Eli, 12, and Rylan, 11, MacGregor won first place in the Junior Division.  It was Rylan’s first year and while Eli has participated for about 5 years, it’s always been with his Dad.  The boys did a great job despite the driving rain.

Other first place division winners included:

Alex and Lucy Milde-Co-Ed Division

C.J. Hedges V and C.J. Hedges IV- Parent-Child Division

Kasandra Gonet and Amanda Eldridge- Women’s Division

Rebecca Milde and Daphne Poirier- Girls Junior Division

What is LOVE? Family Style

my mother is love

GreatGrandmotherly Love!

What is love? Today, I see love manifested when I see my mother. My mother had a stroke last year that left her with aphasia.

Aphasia in this instance means that sometimes she understands your words, sometimes she doesn’t. Sometimes you can understand her words, and sometimes you cannot. So, without the language of words to count on for communication, we communicate in other ways.

My mother, Geraldine (now called “Nama”) had seven children in pretty rapid succession. She is married to a high football coach, and she was a nurse. While we were rich in love, we had very little in the way of material items. My dad worked odd jobs. My mom had no car, and would work the 11-7 shift at a nursing home that she could walk to. Often, she would lug laundry that we couldn’t keep up at home to wash as she worked. She gave all to her family… –Keep on Reading!

Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day

Happy VD Day 2016smallValentine’s Day is right around the corner and there are some great ways to show your clients how much you appreciate their business.

Valentine cards are always a great idea to show your love.  There are some great ones in the stores or even making your own out of construction paper  and lace.

How about some candy hearts with your business card attached with a colorful ribbon.

Everyone loves candy, so a tiny valentine heart with a couple of chocolates is a great treat for your clients and won’t break the bank.

Flowers are a great idea or even some homemade treats in a festive Valentine basket or bag.

We always think of sending out pop-bys during the holidays but Valentine’s Day can be an unexpected gift for your clients to show how much you appreciate their business and referrals.

BOLD Moves Real Estate is appreciative of all its clients.  Visit www.boldmovesrealestate to check out some great listings and see how our new virtual tours can help your home sell faster.

Upstream, NAR, and YOU- the Real Estate Professional

Upstream is an initiative promoted by National Association of REALTORS® to modify the flow of information in Real Estate.

I first heard of Upstream at the National Association of REALTORS® Conference, when I attended my Data Strategies Committee meeting two (or three?) years ago.  My takeaway that day was that there is enormous amounts of data being collected, and as Realtors, NAR is in a position to ascertain quality information, and intends to be the gatekeepers of the ‘big data’. It was almost as if “the train has left the station, let’s see if we can’t be the conductor on this train!” NAR allocated a sum of money to investigate possibilities. While I thought it seemed like a tremendous amount of money, those who ‘knew better’ reassured me that it was a drop in the bucket for NAR, this is not a serious game changer.

However, my thoughts of how this would effect agency, compensation, communication, and how I train budding Realtor Professionals was changing. I felt I needed to prepare them for possible changes. I incorporated the YouTube video on Upstream and RPR and began using their diagrams.

Currently, NAR is interviewing candidates for the CEO position of NAR. Brad Inman wrote a thought provoking blog on this, and his ideas of who that may be. To me, this meant that this is serious…. Upstream is on it’s way.

We at Agent Rising Real Estate School and Training Center are poising to launch our “Constantly Evolving Continuing Education” series for Online Education. “Online, On Point, and On Topic”. With our video/online series, we will be addressing issues like Upstream, Pocket Listings, Coming Soon and more.
