Kicking the Tires

Home Builder with Artisan Custom Estates

We are a recent addition to the active rain network and this is first blog post here for our luxury custom home builder group in North Atlanta - Artisan Custom Estates.  After spending a little time navigating through the active rain site, it appears to be a very well designed community of real estate professionals and we look forward to expanding our network through interacting with the community.

We will try and get into a flow of steady blog posts and provide some perspective from the builder's perspective - particularly as it pertains to designing and building a custom home.  We are fairly new at the whole blogging game, so we appreciate any advice on how to get some initial traction and build up our local network!

Welcome to Active Rain, I hope you get as much out of this site as we have!  We blog about 7 times a week and at this point we are getting anywhere form 3 to 10 viable leads each and every week.  Congratulations on choosing a great strategy!
