By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Missy Caulk TEAM

You can do it too ! Brian Block, from Alexandria, VA is the founder of the group Active Rain Block Party. He started this group so we can share about our success on Activerain. Hardly a week goes by that someone doesn't post on, Are you getting business from Activerain?

I always answer YES !

Here are some of success in my busineses that have come about because of blogging on Activerain.

Currently, I have sold one house where a consumer found my blog and called me. 1358 Quail Hollow was sold. SOLD

You go girl A referral from Maureen Francis, the number one blogger in Michigan on Activerain referred a buyer to us and they are already in their new home.

I have another house listed at 3008 Green Valley in Ann Arbor, she found me by reading my blog. Some make an offer

 

Thanks KellyKelly Sibilsky, from Lake Zurich, Ill. A fantastic blogger on Activerain, referred her sister Kim to me and we are waiting on her home to sell before she can purchase in Whitmore Lake, Mi.

Just this week, I was contacted by two consumers:

Hi Missy,

I saw your name on an Ypsi Depot Town post that I found with Google.

I'm a photographer looking for a small studio convenient to Depot town. (easy walking distance) I've checked out a couple areas that were a bit too expensive or no where near completion (Thompson Bldg).

What no one got back to the first one. I did and sent him listings and have been emailing him back and forth.

Second prospect, I also sent out listings today on commercial building. *** Note,  I wrote 3 posts on Ypsilanti, Mi. This was written in May 2006.

Subject: home for sale

Hi there. I have had a house for sale by owner for awhile now and am living in Clearwater, FL while trying to sell my house there in Saline. It's a bit difficult to sell a house there anyway right now but certainly when I'm not there to advertise it much it hurts me.

Missy,

Hello, my name is Michael Garcia and I found your web presence to be very positive and extensive.

I am assisting my parents in the sale of an investment property they own in the College Heights Condo complex at 1612 Washtenaw - very close to EMU.

Subject: Jackson County

Do you represent any home seller's in Jackson County? Our property has been for sale on and off for 3 years.
We are not "emotionally" attached to an overpriced home. Although we are well aware of Michigan current economic situation (sucks).
Anyway, I see that you are ranked #2 in MI so obviously you are about results.
Any chance of taking us on?

This one I referred out as Jackson County is too far from my area.

Missy,

Congratulations on all those leads! Looks like you will have to start hiring some more buyers agents if this keeps up. Also, Martin Bouma may have to start looking over his shoulder and take notice that someone is revving their engines and getting ready to take off. Keep up the good work and I will be contacting you about that lead generation system soon.

Alayna, thanks, best of success to you in 2008.

John, thanks I love my Tiger Leads. I really like Martin, he is a very good agent, very professional and I enjoy his buyer agents selling my listings.

Elizabeth, keep posting, read some of the posts on SEO, and start to apply them. I had lots of help from Karen George when I first started posting here.
