Being a member of ActiveRain has been so rewarding. The site is filled with so many wonderful people who are real estate agents, REALTORS®, affiliates and other professions in the industry. Not just wonderful, but great people. We are from across the country in every state - and every climate zone!
I love being on this site and have met so many cool people from across the US since joining ActiveRain, after attending Rain Camp in June, 2009 in Scottsdale, AZ. It's also great to tell friends and clients that "I know all the best agents" anytime anyone talks of moving!
Recently, I referred a former neighbor/friend to an agent in Florida that I found on ActiveRain. Her team includes her daughter-in-law who is taking great care of my former neighbor with information and knowledge that is wowing him. He raves about that agent I referred for he and his wife to build a new home. She has provided so many insights and answers that he's sold!
I share agent's names to other agents on my office Facebook office page for anyone looking in other states. Each time, they are so grateful for having a contact. It comes across as one of the most professional ways of doing business, and a bit altruistic.
Find an agent with a profile, read their blogs, and refer! I share ActiveRain pages to agents so they can see for themselves, bringing new visitors to ActiveRain to see the community. Rinse and repeat as often as possible. It's that simple.
Some agents have left ActiveRain during the last few years, which is sad. ActiveRain still has so much to offer. The relationships are still here, I promise!
