When you have a referral to make, and you choose to refer to a fellow Active Rain agent, what can you usually expect? Most Active Rain agents are tech savvy agents, or more tech savvy than the average agent. Afterall, these are the agents who blog, and blogging is still not an everyday activity among the majority of agents.
Tech savvy means that an Active Rain agent probably has more systems or tools in place to help their clients. When systems and tools are in place, clients generally get better service, because things aren't forgotten as easily.
Active Rain agents also tend to be agents who are more creative than others, and with the markets in some cities, creativity can be the difference between selling or not, or finding the right property for the purchaser.
Active Rain agents are the best agents to receive referrals, in my opinion, for many reasons. The last, and best reason, is that AR agents seem to have more fun!
