Success in the Beautiful Rain

Real Estate Agent with Cornerstone Realty

I was so excited to see that I had been featured in someone elses blog! 

Thank you ActiveRain and thank you Kerrie.  Let's stay positive out there.

I heard a very powerful and simple saying this week:  Energy flows where attention goes. 

Why do we spend our attention and therefore energy on things beyond our control?  Why do we tire ourselves focusing on the ugly?  Why do we stress out and become "that person" nobody wants to be around? 

No way.  Nope.  Not me!

So to all who get caught in the "what if, why did it happen that way" game, remind yourself that energy flows where attention goes.  Let's focus on the good and get that energy flowing down the river of positivity.  It's up to you and a much better ride! 

I bet the 6 members below choose to focus on the positive when hiccups occur.

"I began as a real estate agent just this summer and already have two success stories! The first is having a blog post I wrote about hiking to a particular mountain be the catalyst for an out-of-state buyer to contact me after she googled cabins in the area. The second is a buyer referral I received from another ActiveRain agent, which will result in my first closing next week!"

"ActiveRain has brought amazing results for us in so many ways. We have received direct business from writing market reports and area information. One client along bought a million dollar house, sold another $700,000 home and bought yet another for $350,000. Now the client is doing fix and flips as well. So for the people who wonder if it does work. IT DOES! 4 transactions from one post alone. I can't even begin to quantify the value we receive just from reading informative posts and applying what we learn to better our google ranking, our website, SEO etc.... The list just goes on and on. Thank you ActiveRain!"

"Active Rain has allowed me to grow not only my local business but my referral business as well. This year alone I've placed 13 outgoing referrals to agents across the country and the checks are rolling in. The Active Rain Community is one of the most generous groups of professionals anyone can find. It doesn't matter if it is your first day on the job or you have been selling real estate for 40 years the doors are open and everyone is welcome. Thanks Active Rain for helping take my business to the next level."

"ActiveRain is a wonderful resource for real estate. I have found agents in other areas to assist clients in their relocations and also gathered wonderful information from internet ideas to transaction details. Just recently, I was contacted by an agent in another state through ActiveRain to list a house for sale here in Fortuna. Sold it in 90 days!"


Derek Myers (Century 21 Key Real Estate Services): Real Estate Agent in Cranberry Township, PA Derek Myers (Century 21)
"The Saturday before Easter, I received a call from a woman who said, "I found your number of some active water site (which I thought was funny) and I need an agent that will show me houses tomorrow." She said that she was a serious buyer and apologized it was a holiday but she was only in town for one more day. Long story short, it was an Easter miracle! We found the perfect house and closed last week. ActiveRain and me, we never take a day off."

"Dear Active Rain, we just picked up a new buyer thanks to our amazing Blog here on Active Rain. This buyer has been reading our Blog for quiet some time, he lives out of town and wants to get away from the city and relocate his whole family to this area. He called us last week and we are now in the process of finding a country home on 5+ acres around $450,0000! Thank you...again!"


Let it Rain my friends...Let it Rain!!!
