Active Rain…One of the Best Kept Secret in Real Estate

By
Real Estate Agent 16784
My impression of active rain real estate network is that it is an invaluable addition to a Realtor’s Toolbox.  I am a “newbie” and my experience thus far has been quite positive.  I would like to solicit the views of all members, especially veteran members.  Basically to highlight an experience that directly impacted their business.  The most obvious advantage of this forum is networking…share your experiences with us.

I'm still pretty new myself. I've only been around for a few weeks. I've had lots of information and opinion exchanges with people, but nothing that;s lead me toi any leads yet. It is fun and interesting, but it gets addicting, sucking up lots of time if you let it.

Blog at your own risk!

Welcome, Lloyd!  I am a "newbie" also, but have found that by blogging and reading other people's blogs--there is a real wealth of useful information.  The spirit of cameraderie is very strong here.

Next time you're at El Pinto, have an enchilada and think of me!

The information and ideas are only as limited as to our time to sit in front of the computer. Whereas, most of the information is sound, I may not agree with everything. But, in fact, isn't that what helps us all create new and better ideas?
