And the Winner is.........ActiveRain!

   About  a month ago I got an email from a fellow ActiveRain Realtor asking if I wanted a referral as one of his clients was moving to Mooresville.  He read my bio on ActiveRain and felt I would be a good fit with his clients.  I finalized their sale this week.  AWESOME!.  In fact, I sold three homes in the past week to clients referred to me through the Internet and blogging.  I received three leads while just sitting at my computer and I am a relative newbie to the blog world!  If this were the Academy Awards my speech would read something like this: 

Firstly,  I would like to thank Brad Inman for his constant prodding to test every new technology since my first Connect in SF in the late 1990's.  And, for asking me to attend his conference-call on blogging this past spring.

Secondly, I would like to thank RSS Pieces who has held my hand while I launched my own blog this May and for being there when I needed them most.

Thirdly, I would like to thank the agent in Tennessee who believed in me enough to offer me his clients.

And, finally, thank you to the creators of ActiveRain for your vision that created a network of real estate professionals that is actually kicking the butts of national and international relocation networks while providing an opportunity to share ideas and experiences and vent when things get tough.

Great story!  I'm ready for referrals as well and I'll give a 30% referral fee!

I've gotten leads from the internet since I starting blogging on here, but no direct referrals...as of yet...but I'm hoping!  That's for the post!

How exciting.  If I can ever be of help please don't hesitate to contact me, networking is where it is at.

That's AWESOME Diane!  I've received a couple of referrals because of AR, nothing has 'panned out' yet but I know that they will!
