A close friend whose son is in the Navy asked if I could help her find a good agent in San Diego. I went to ActiveRain, searched for "VA Military San Diego Real Estate," and up popped RainMaker Lorraine Santirosa, who specializes in military relocations.
Lorraine and I had a great conversation, and I felt really good about her qualifications — she was perfect! I referred her to my friend and they closed last week.
Without ActiveRain, I don't think I could've quickly found an agent with the perfect skill-set.
