There are mostly residential agents in this forum.  There are plenty of agents that share leads back and forth.  I've also had clients see my posts and call me off of them.  It's a lot of work but worth it in my opinion.

I focus more on the residential area.  I haven't seen too many posts dealing with commercial properties.  The there are so many groups, I could not be looking at the right group.

Mike - I would ask you one question before giving you my opinion. Do your clients use google to find commercial property or a commercial agent? If the answer is yes you can do very well as this platform has terrific google juice.

I don't get much through Google, although, an increased presence online has certainly made a difference.

Mike, first I'd like to Welcome you to Active Rain and the Newbie Group.  I suggest you take some time to read through the posts in the Newbie Group.  Yes, go all the way to the last page -- you'll find some great posts included that will help you learn your way around the AR Community and how to add pictures, links, videos, etc, etc. etc.  Read and comment -- just because it's an older post doesn't mean you can't comment on it and create a "relationship" with the member who posted it.  Ask questions -- post your questions on the Newbie Group.  Someone will stop by and answer your question. 

Look through the groups -- there are 1913 Groups here in the AR Community.  I searched for Commercial Real Estate Groups and found 25 of them.  Here's a link to the Commercial Real Estate Group.  I did check and it is an active group.  To find the others go to the home page, click on groups, type in commercial real estate (or whatever subject you're looking for) and click on search.

Welcome to AR!  My answer is an emphatic YES!!!!  Prospects search on-line for commercial real estate too and the amount of information available on AR that will help you to improve every aspect of your business operation and efficiency is staggering!  I'm only sorry that it took me 2 years to learn that AR was out there as a source of professional camaraderie and improvement!

Okay, I'm getting the hang of this! Thanks to all of you who have helped.  It's great.

The site is perfect for commercial real estate agents. CRE agents depend on networking more than residential agents. AR is the perfect forum to network with other CRE agents. Spread the word!
