poinciana-crane-logoWhere did I come from?  (Or, from whence did I fuckn’ come?)

For eight years, Darhlene ran The Poinciana Crane,¹ starting as a public real estate blog then blossoming into a hyperlocal news outlet before closing in 2012.  There was a lot happening that year, including yours truly running for a county seat while serving as vice president to civic group that later became the neighborhood power clique; helping found the Poinciana Economic Development Alliance, a.k.a., PEDA; and managing, in a nearly unpaid position, a private for-profit blog for Poinciana’s Solivita management; all before realizing that the real estate industry and an overloaded schedule was not made for people like me.

Who am I?

I the one who passed Florida’s real estate exam on the first try in 2004, a feat not accomplished by most licensure candidates; I was also the one surrounded by industry sharks, I later found, people who’d slap their mother’s faces for a few thousand bucks (or less, who knows).  I had thought my background that included decades of experience in economic development, government, and technology would naturally lend me to a successful career in real estate sales.  It did not.
