Real Living GMAC merger using your ActiveRain resources

Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

The Real Living group on ActiveRain says:

Real Living logo"Real Living is a real estate brokerage and a brand. This is a group for those associated with Real Living and their friends. Welcome to the GMAC agents who are rebranding as Real Living! The Howard Hanna agents in Cleveland / NE Ohio who were with Realty One Real Living will always be our friends.

Please do not post listings or ads to the Real Living group UNLESS you are a Real Living Realtor... This group is for Real Living brokerages across the US. If you are affiliated with another real estate brokerage please don't post to the group, unless it has something to do with Real Living.

For those with Real Living*. YOU can post ANYTHING original here (that conforms to the ActiveRain Guidelines and rules, Fair Housing and Antitrust laws. ) Your posts do NOT have to be about Real Living or even about real estate.

This is a place for Real Living agents to get to know one another and NETWORK.


* It should say "For those with Real Living and GMAC.

If you are with a GMAC brokerage that is not rebranding as Real Living (going another route), best of luck to you!

Hi Maureen, great review and I think the GMAC merger with Real Living is good and synergistic for both groups.

Maureen, from my perspective Real Living is an unknown. I'm strongly considering leaving the GMAC franchise I'm affiliated with but would be interested in your take RL. What can you tell me?

I've been with the company that is Real Living HER since 1995.  The HER Realtors  technology platform was the basis for the Real Living technology.  We are the number one brokerage in Central Ohio.  Stefan Swanepoel who looks at real estate trends thinks the merger will be positive for the brokerages and agents of GMAC and Real Living Network Services. 

Sheri Moritz is a franchisee in the Carolina's is an ActiveRain member.  She has a different perspective on the merger as a franchisee.  You may want to ask Sheri about her experience, the experience of her agents.
