CONGRATULATIONS AR! YOU'VE BEEN MENTIONED IN the FLORIDA REALTOR MAGAZINE...AS....
One of the most visited sites on the Web...as reported by Richard Westlund! The article is called "Ka-ching Best Marketing for the Money", and it was an article in our most recent Florida new's magazine.
The article was talking about marketing dollars and where to put them. It also talked about marketing strategies and where to put your dollars or where you don't have to - that is to benefit by proxy...
What Richard Westlund says are the most visited sites in the real estate arena are the following: Google, Facebook, YouTube, Yahoo, and Live, according to an online tracking site called "Alexa".
HOWEVER, the BEST part of the article stated that the "TOP FIVE REAL ESTATE SITES ARE: Zillow.com, Realtor.com, ACTIVERAIN.COM, Loopnet.com, and AOL Real Estate (realestate.aol.com)...
WOW, When I read this article, I was so proud to have been a member of AR pretty much from the onset that it made me teary eyed. I have to say that many of the members I met from the very beginning of AR have become some great friends. Even though I have never met many of them, I consider them family.
To be listed in a real estate magazine as one of the top 5 real estate sites, with less than 300,000 members is just awesome.
Congratulations to the AR staff and the members of this community as being a class act and being one of the greatest communities out there for the public to appreciate.
I was overwhelmed with emotion when I read this article.
Thank you all for building and making this one of the top 5 sites in the world!
