Active Rain is a unique community of real estate professionals energized by the knowledge and creativity of its members. With a few key strokes, members engage with each other twenty-four hours a day. Although Active Rain was built for community, I consider us more of an online family.
Members absorb positive energy from upbeat Rainers. After a frustrating day in the trenches, readers search for articles written by community members who have lived through similar situations. In the Rain it is clear that real life as a Realtor is definitely stranger than fiction.
Bloggers have fun on the Active Rain platform. How many times have you come upon an entertaining post written with a keen sense of humor? Comments pile up like a feeding frenzy. Rainers love to join the fun, with responses representative of our colorful personalities.
Members are always up for the challenge of improving the day of other community members and putting smiles on faces. We cajole writers who leave a wake of grouchy comments into a better frame of mind, by writing something positive. We console our friends who are enduring personal loss or health issues, by acknowledging their concern, frustration, or pain. We send private emails and make personal phone calls to those who need to know that we care about our online family. Simply put, we are genuinely there for each other.
Rainers celebrate the success of other members. We share weddings and the birth of children and grandchildren. We help each other reach a new point level and share in the excitement of the moment. We love to share the good times!
We have gone beyond community to become an online family!
