Thank you Active Rain for my education over the last nearly 10 months. I say education because I have learned many things about the real estate industry by reading and being involved with AR. Where else would a person get this type of detailed information about issues effecting the entire industry? Knowledgeable professionals take their time to share in-depth insight that I would venture to say can not be found anywhere else. When I have a question about a real estate related item I type the item into the search on AR and usually get multiple past posts on the issue.
I signed up for my AR account on the 31st of January this year. I had written a couple things previous to that on Real Talk which I was introduced to via the E-Pro course. Today I have 100 comments received from my blog posts and 100 comments left for others. I have a blog, imagine that! I also have an outside blog which is local to my home sales area. Because of the details posted on AR about how to get ranking (google juice) on these posts, I have top ranking on several neighborhood searches with these posts. These posts also transfer to Localism which is there for potential clients to find on he web and view. I am ranked 1st in my city, and 1st in my County. I am ranked 195 out of 5600+ in my state. I have met several really great folks here on AR, I really mean that.
I enjoy that AR sends the featured posts to my email each day, and usually I spend about half hour reading the top 1 or 2 posts before I do anything else in my day, and I return to AR several times throughout the day. I look forward to the next many months and years of being in the Rain. Thanks to all of you who contribute to make AR what it is, and again thank you Active Rain!
