Rainers are very informative folks!

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Service Realty

Hello  Rainers,

As I sit and read all of the most informative blogs and personality of fellow Rainers, I once again ponder on just how fortunate new Real Estate Agents like myself really are.  All of the knowledge shared on this fantastic networking site truly is invaluable.  We could spend $199 to go to a conference where the guest speaker offers a sales pitch for their very own style of sales at $295 or we can log on here for free! Hmmmm... what do you guys think about these Floyd Wickmans, Jim Drozs, Rick DeLucas and Tom Hopkins?  I really am curious as to your opinions here.  I myself enjoy these conferences, but they do get pricey and yes I know I need and still desire instruction but is this really the highest and best use of monies for a new Real Estate agent?

Thanks fellow Rainers.

Best Regards,

Crystal Allen

I think I learn a new trick everyday.  The real problem is getting the time to devote to the site.

I agree totally! I love Active Rain and I enjoy contributing to the blogs, as well. This is a wealth of information, and it pays!

I think active rain offers wonderful training and reading is a great way for free growth ALWAYS! As for what do I think of some of the speakers...Well...I would never have been the success I was in real estate without Rick Deluca and his 4 weeks to success. His messages are priceless...

Sometimes, it is just nice to sit and listen and learn. The new twist is motivating...I speak now as well...my personal goal is to help agents to be the best they can. I do not sell much in products because as an agent myself it has always been a pet peeve for products to be pushed on me...However, if I like the speaker and liked the tool - I was always a buyer!

Keep learning and you will keep growing...Growth = Success!

You are so right about Active Rain being a great deal at free.  If you like conferences you may want to try the CRS Sell-a-bration.  I attend every year and feel it is really worth it.
