Many have seen the recent "Leave Realtors Alone!" video over the last few days. It was posted on many real estate blogs, including The Phoenix Real Estate Guy. (See ReAlToR HuMoR)
Sadly, the young "star" of the video, Aaron Anglin, was killed in an automobile accident yesterday. Aaron was 24 years old and leaves behind a wife and two very young daughters.
Aaron is the brother of Lani Anglin, who many know through her contributions on Bloodhound blog, and her own blog — r.e Revealed. I didn't know Aaron, but Lani is a true cyber-friend of mine. She and her husband Benn have made great contributions to the RE.net.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the Anglin family, and all that Aaron touched. Some of us are working on a way to help financially, more will be forthcoming.
Update #1: Greg Swann has a way to help quickly. April Groves, a dear friend of Lani's posts here. I am going to try to ammend the PayPal donation link for Karen George (see the top right corner of this blog) to allow for donations to either Karen or to Aaron's family.
Update #2: The donation button is on this blog (top right corner under the big green ribbon), and beginning to show up on others across the RE.net. If you'd like the donation button code, you can get it here. Thanks to those that have *already* donated!!
