Well hello Rainers!  It's Friday afternoon so we all know what time it is....Success time baby!  I'm really digging this week's highlighted members stories and hope you can get some inspiration from them to never, ever give up!

Harvey Collier - Home Loan Consultant Greater Fort Lauderdale FL (Primary Residential Mortgage dba Sterling Asset & Equity): Loan Officer in Fort Lauderdale, FL Harvey Collier (Sterling Asset & Equity)
"I've recently reactivated my membership with ActiveRain after a one year hiatus. What compelled me to come back was the continued flow of leads I still receive from my previous ActiveRain blog posts. Some of these posts are over 2 years old. Today alone I received 2 new prospects that found me from my previous blog posts. What a powerful tool to help with lead generation."


Bernadine Hunter, SRES, ACRE, SFR (Keller Williams Greater Ohio Realty): Real Estate Agent in Reynoldsburg, OH Bernadine Hunter (Keller Williams)
"Mine is not the typical ActiveRain success story. I cannot yet say that I have closed a certain dollar amount in deals because of my ActiveRain membership. What I can say is because of my AR membership and outside blog, I've been able to receive so much excellent information and encouragement about my business. This, in turn, has increased my confidence 100% to the point where I am actively blogging and getting feedback on my blogs. It is just a matter of time when I will be able to say that I actually got a viable lead or referral based on my AR participation."

The Brewer Group Franklin Tn Homes (Benchmark Realty): Real Estate Agent in Franklin, TN The Brewer Group (Benchmark Realty)
"I've had several home buyers find me though my blogs in ActiveRain. This is the best referral network ever for real estate agents. Franklin is a small town just south of Nashville, and the recognition that blogging gives me so much better than any newpaper or magazine could provide."


Kim and Kristine Halverson (Prudential California Realty, Santa Monica :)): Real Estate Agent in Santa Monica, CA Kim and Kristine Halverson (Prudential)
"Every year we discover more about ActiveRain and how to use this platform to learn new ways to grow our business. One feature we love is the Referral Network. We've found great referrals for our clients moving out of the area. And met a great referral partner who regularly sends us clients. Thank you Active Rain!"


Julie Chroust, Prospect Mortgage, Pleasanton, CA: Mortgage Company in Walnut Creek, CA Julie Chroust (Prospect Mortgage)
"I met a Realtor on AR about 4 months ago and now this RE team is the main source of my current business. I also have clients call me about things I post or clients call me because this is how they found me. Woo Hoo.... I absolutely love AR. It has allowed me to get the message out there about special financing and getting me top rating with Google. I am truly impressed with the ease and layout of this blog. Thank you AR."

Craig Reeves (Keller Williams Realty Jupiter): Real Estate Agent in Jupiter, FL Craig Reeves (Keller Williams)
"ActiveRain has allowed my clients to see their homes listed for sale on the first page of Google which in turn has resulted in more listings within my farm area as well as buyers who have contacted me to see these and other listings in my farm area."
