I have to admit when I first caught wind of the purchase of ActiveRain by Ben Kinney, I was absolutely thrilled!....
As a Keller Williams broker myself, I have closely observed Ben's amazing track record for success over the years. What excites me, besides his obvious business acumen, is that Ben Kinney knows real estate. He has been down in the trenches. He has worked his way up, and has demonstrated proven, consistent success at very high levels.
In addition, as one of the 'Old Guard' who has watched the growth & progress of ActiveRain since its launch in 2006, the prospects of returning to more of a grass roots ownership by someone who understands and empathizes with us all is very encouraging.
To say that ActiveRain has played a major role in the positive development & growth of my own business would be an understatement. Nothing has had a more significant impact on my knowledge, understanding, and application of all things relating to the Internet and technology than ActiveRain. And the friendships I have forged through AR have remained some of the most valued & meaningful relationships I have!
