My First Active Rain Success Story
I have been on A.R. for a few years now and would say have really been active for about a year or so. During this time I noticed some decent seo ranking coming from my AR account. I enjoy interacting with other members and really have learned a lot from them. I also must say that my blogging skills have increased 1000% over the past year, it is truly funny to look at some of my first post compared to some of my better post now. So after all of this time and effort I had to ask myself "have I actually closed business from what I've done on AR"????? After all that is really the bottom line.
A few months back the email came in. It even showed it came from a non Active Rain member who found me on a Google search through Active Rain. I can even go so far as to say they emailed me through my AR account as it showed this on their initial email to me. My point is this came from AR through and through. After the email came in I called them right away and we set up a time to meet. We met and things went really well they said they would be calling me to list the home in about two months. Two months later they called and I wasn't around (due to extreme family emergency). They heard what my family had just went through and waited for us to get it back together again and we listed the home. The home was everything we could ever ask for from a seller as they had it fixed up, clean and ready to go. By the way the sellers were the nicest, easiest to work with people you will ever meet in your life. Home was on market for about 30 days and had a great offer that the sellers happily accepted.
Home officially closed today November 7th 2011. This was a great experience for me all the way through. Just so happened buyers I knew called me and just had to see this house. As you know I had to go over real estate agency with them to make sure they fully understood the entire situation. They saw the home and fell in love and put in a great offer right then and there. From that point to closing everyone worked together and things just went great. I am happy to finally be able to say with all honesty that I have a great success story from my involvement in Active Rain.
