A Thank You Letter For “365 Things”

Thank you for 365!

I asked Dale if I could do a post for him on Day 365. Understandably, he wanted to do Day 365 himself, but I was able to wrestle him for day 364. So here goes:

Today, I want to write a “Thank You” to my long time friend Dale Chumbley. If you know Dale personally, you know that he is a very sincere man with several passions that make him very special.

Dales Poker PadOne of Dale’s lighter passions is for Texas Hold’em. Dale has forgotten more about Texas Hold’em than I will ever know. For years, Dale has used Texas Hold’em as a way to bring together old friends and new friends, alike (and to take my money). As I think about it, the real passion here may be bringing people together. I think one of the pre-cursors to 365 were the tweet-ups that Dale did at Whiffies among other places. I am just one of many people who appreciate Dale bringing people together.

Speaking at Inman Agent RebootIt is probably obvious to all of us that Dale is what I call an “internet guru”. It has been amazing to watch all that he has accomplished with Facebook, his blog, and Twitter. Dale has been invited to speak at conferences all over the country in this past year. I think most of us can learn a lot about how to establish an effective internet presence from Dale. I know that I will be using Dale as a consultant for my internet efforts for the next few years.

Dale is also a Realtor with Real Living – The Real Estate Group. Dale’s mother has been in the business for 27 years. And Dale has been working in Real Estate for most of his life. That is one of the reasons I believe “365 Things To Do In Vancouver WA” has been such an amazing success. Dale knows Vancouver and Clark County like few others. Born and raised here—it’s in his blood! If you ever need a Realtor, Dale is a great choice!

Whether it is bringing friends together, helping someone develop their internet presence, or helping someone buy or sale a home, Dale puts his heart into all that he does. Please join me in thanking Dale for doing a great job on 365!

Thank you Dale! We look forward to what you have planned for us in the future!

Chris Hill

    I have never met Dale Chumbley but I would like to say that I know lots of people who have met him and who know him. To a person male or female they all believe in him. While I have never met him I believe in him. Late one night in the middle of the week about 2 days prior to our last Thangsgiving day about 10:30 PM I was still at work watching on Facebook some of the Happy Birthday videos that Dale does for people’s Birthdays. I thought to myself wow I would like to know how to do these videos. I sent Dale a Facebook message. Just minutes later my phone rang and there was Dale. He explained to me how to do them. I can’t tell you how much this meant to me. Just think how special a man is that will do this for someone he doesn’t know. Someone who will not be a client of his, someone who he has nothing to be made from, just another Realtor more than a thousand miles away asking for help. This is the kind of man who is special. I really believe Dale Chumbley is a special man. Thanks Dale.
