A little about me.....
Hello, my name is Sam and I have had the unique pleasure of living and working in over 140 cities all across America. I spent the last year in Portland as an international recruiter for the oil and gas industry but Seattle has always had a special place in my heart and when ActiveRain made the offer, I made the move. I have met people from all walks of life and have become an excellent communicator by landing on common ground and establishing mutually beneficial working relationships.
In my downtime, I enjoy traveling to tropic locations such as Hawaii. As a matter of fact, I went scuba diving for the first time while on vacation in Kona with Big Island Divers and what a thrill! I mean it was the coolest thing I had ever experienced, it was an amazing accomplishment since the last time I was in Hawaii I almost drowned trying to snorkel! Ha! It just goes to show you that if you put your mind to something, you will succeed.
I also enjoy live music, designing and building structures, boating, motorcycles, and martial arts.
What is Active Rain?
We are a social media platform for the real estate professional! If 90% of all buyers last year found their property online, then it makes sense to blog for business! Demonstrating knowledge and ability are your marketing tools and writing blogs is a very simple way to do that. The key is to take steps to kick start your social marketing so that it automatically generates business for you all year long.
One of my New Years resolutions for January aside from the usual - (go to the gym everyday, quit eating fast food, and meet a nice girl and settle down (check that last one of the list, Love you Tamara!)), is to really sink my teeth into the ActiveRain website and learn all the tools that are available to us and how they can help grow your business. As a Social Marketing Trainer, I explain what public blogging can do to increase your market share. But there is so much more to the Active Rain platform like the Hit Router, posting your listings, setting up a referral alert through our Referral Program, the ability to sponsor a community, and the list goes on and on.
I have come to believe in ActiveRain and recognize it's potential so much that I have decided to focus on becoming a Broker/Agent in the next couple of years. You can use JUST ActiveRain to run your business! There are too many exciting tools on this website and to not take advantage of them would be a crime! Don't get the wrong idea, I will always be a part of ActiveRain, on this side or the other - Or both!
"Hey, Sam. This is from Robet Tipton. Just a quick word on how comfortable you made me at signing up as a " Rain Maker". You touched on all important points on getting started and I want to personally thank you. Once again, Many thanks. You've made it very easy for me to call back for any ongoing information that is needed.."
I just had the pleasure of working with Sam Fischer for the first time. I called to re-activate our account with ActiveRain – Nani had been my contact before.
Sam was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and truly embodied excellent customer service. I know I shouldn’t be surprised but it is often rare to find that kind of professionalism mixed with an ease of dealing with people. I immediately felt comfortable with Sam and knew he would take care of our needs at Exclusive Realty.
You are fortunate to have him and I hope he is compensated accordingly.
