"I was recently contacted by a representative of a department of the British Government looking to assist companies expand into North America. They did a simple Google search "top commercial real estate agents in North America". The first item of page one of Google was the ActiveRain list for "Commercial Real Estate Agents". I'm third on the list following two from the United States, one in Las Vegas and another near Washington. That clearly makes me #1 in Canada. They have a whole list of referrals."
Dave Gubler (IML Real Estate)
"Via AR I have received numerous referrals from and provided many referrals to out of the area real estate agents. Because we can really get to know each other in this community the quality of the referral provided is very high. When I endorse an agent from the community it is based on facts and a long-term interaction that virtually guarantees a client a better experience and result."
Cindy Edwards (RE/MAX)
"Yesterday I blogged about market reports and foreclosure activity in the Tri-cities area. I specifically reported on Kingsport Tennessee and it's role in foreclosures, locally and countrywide. 3 hours later I got a call from a writer for the Kingsport Newspaper who wants to team up with me for future articles for the paper. He found me through Google alerts, via ActiveRain...I just sold a home to a soldier getting back from Iraq. We did all our shopping over the internet-he came back on a Friday and found him a home on Sunday... He found me on active rain. Thanks ActiveRain! I have met so many wonderful agents on AR and have personally met with many of them in different states along my travels. The education I have received through out my journey is amazing. I just received two listing leads via ActiveRain! I love ActiveRain!"

"My two latest listings came to me as a result of the sellers reading my blog on ActiveRain. The clients told me they enjoyed reading my posts and felt that I was the most qualified person to list their property."

"I love it! I have been using ActiveRain blogs to supplement my website and it is working well. I met a couple at an open house the other day and they said, "Don't you write a blog on real estate too?" Yes I do! I picked them up as a buyer. I also received a referral from an out of town agent who found me on ActiveRain."
