What happens in AR, Stays in AR???

Services for Real Estate Pros with Gryphon

Member's only blogs, nicknames, blogging for points, spam, shameless comments for ratings. These are all just a part of that crazy place we call "the rain". But does it all really stay here??? I for one, hope not. The relationships and experiences that one can find here are part of the benefit.

Case in point:  We got a call yesterday from a potential client. They had relocated out of state, had a property that had been on the market for a while and wanted to discuss an auction. As the conversation progressed, we asked them how they had heard of us. Answer - google and this site called active rain. This is in addition to all the great ideas, proposals, sample letters, pricing suggestions etc we have gotten while here.  Pre-rain I didn't know what SEO or range-pricing were or have anyone to discuss them with.

Yes the rain is a great place to go, get ideas, see friends, have some chocolate champaign courtesy of TLW, but it's not just a destination. Experience it, Live it and spread the word.

Viva La Rain.

You're a geek.  I mean nice blog, hun.  Actually, you are right.  I just hope that not all of it gets out.  If they find out how messed up in the head we really are, nobody will want to hire us.  I will be back tomorrow maybe when I can obtain shameless pointage.  I got carried away on real responses earlier.  Addicting Rain!

Sounds good. I used up all my comment points earlier as well. Something about angles, groups, how great my brokerage is, turkeys, points, MTV, cages, Ned, bed, well you get the idea.

If you REALLY want to "LIVE AR" try making blog comments for 24 straight hours. I've only been doing it for 2 hours 19 minutes and I think I've lost my mind. I can't wait to see what I write 22 hours and 41 minutes from now!


A world record for blog commenting!

Nima- thanks for stopping by. I was watching TV while blogging and got the idea. Glad you liked it.

Jay - I think you are a little more hard-core AR than I am. I can't imagine blogging for 24 hours. Feel free to stop back if you need a little R&R.
