"I joined ActiveRain in or around the year 2006. I saw the "buzz" about the new site on many Real Estate-related boards. I setup a presence... And before I knew it, ActiveRain was forwarding my past clients looking for my information. ActiveRain connected me to approximately $500k worth of business-IN THAT ONE CONNECTION! Thank you! ActiveRain has also served as a great insight to the business, helping to give better "on-the-ground" information and greater and more pertinent perspective on various subjects. For this, I thank YOU, to the ActiveRain Community!"
Gabriel Libutti (Dover Mortgage Company)
"The Active Rain Community Has been Wonderful to me. 50% of my business in 2008 and 65% of my YTD business in 2009 has come from direct Active RainMaker referrals! Thank you Active Rain!"
Austin Ellis (David Ellis Real Estate)
"I love activerain. It really helps me get great rankings on google and get tons of good exposure to the real estate buyers and sellers out there. I am now getting about 4-5 leads a day on my collection of websites."
Kathy Nielsen (Georgia Interior Solutions, LLC)
"Are you ready for this? Here's the power of the Active Rain network and how it works. I get to write posts, share examples of my work, and share tips and strategies with homeowners (and agents alike) regarding preparing their home for the market. Now here's the best part, homeowners, investors, banks, agents, magazines, newspapers are all given a wonderful opportunity to read these posts as they typically appear on page 1 of Google. Great so far, right? It gets better. Recently, I had an investor who had taken the time to interview several home stagers for his investment property. As a direct result of Active Rain and the Google juice it provides, he found my blog posts which is what led to the appointment. Now for the excellent news - 6 days after I staged this home, he received an offer. Three days later, he receives an even better offer (full asking price). So.... not only did Active Rain serve as the vehicle in which he found me, it had a direct result in helping him to sell his home in 9 days!"
Lisa Udy (The Platinum Real Estate Group)
"I love Active Rain. I have only been a member since January 2009, but I have already seen the benefits. I am able to research hot topics in the industry quickly, it has helped me rank higher with google, and I have almost doubled my website traffic. I am also receiveng more leads than ever from my website. All of this in only a little over a month. I can't wait to see what happens next!"
Paige Walker (Century 21 Millennium)
"Received an email from the Active Rain site. A Seller looking to transfer out of State and was browsing the internet for local agents who had a large presence! Well I got the call and the listing and within 60 days they were on their way to their new life and we were closing on their home (via power of attorney). Thanks Active Rain for giving us another valuable source to provide information!"
Let it Rain you guys.....let it Rain!!!!
