I love Active Rain!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United East Texas Division

I am a  brand new real estate agent.  I feel so lucky to have come across the Active Rain web site.  I came across it by accident on another web site that I frequent.  I have just barely touched the surface of AR.  I just get so much information off of it.  I've started keeping a little note pad beside my lap top so that as I think of subjects I can write them down and go to them.  I appreciate the fact that I have so many professionals to ask advice of.  Everyone on the site seems to love sharing their knowledge.  Unlike other sites I've been on, there doesn't seem to be any back biting.   

It amazes me that I can think about anything...any subject and people seem to know all about it.  It is very sound advice.  As a new agent I treasure the advice of those with knowledge, wisdom and experience.  I also enjoy talking to other new agents who have started their careers with me.  At this point in this journey I'm all about taking advantage of anything that will help me make decisions as to the direction I want to take..

Lastly, I would like to say thank you to all of the members of ActiveRain!

I'm with you all!  Just signed on yesterday and I'm getting the fever!  I remain a little skeptical though.

AR is a great resource, especially if you're a new agent. We're in a business, where most of our knowledge is acquired from good and bad experiences of the past. Almost any situation you will encounter in your daily real estate travels, you will find many agents that have already dealt with, and can give you advice. Good luck, with your new career and welcome to AR, you're off to a great start.
