ACTIVERAIN IS 3 FOR 3.. THANK YOU.. GIVE YOURSELF A PAT ON THE BACK

By
Real Estate Agent with Johnson Real Estate, Inc. RES.0761759

I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU.

I've read a lot of blogs where people are looking to see how ActiveRain is working for other members. For the most part everyone said that there is a lot of work in it... blogging, commenting, and responding to comments.

Like anything in life, you get what you put in.  Today proved this.  I've been online with ActiveRain since April of this year.  It didn't take long and I was addicted.  I wrote blogs, and commented on others.  It has been 7 months now, and I wish to take a moment to thank ActiveRain.  I just had my third closing today from a client that got my name from this website.  This was my third lead.. and my third closing.

I wish to thank all the members here on ActiveRain who have read my blogs too.. for if it were for you, I might not have achieved this goal.  So, ActiveRain employees and members, please give yourself a pat on the back....job well done.  Thank you.

Valerie,

This is just another piece of proof that blogging at AR is well worth it. There still are many doubters who don't believe in blogging either here or anywhere. They ought to get on with the times. Congrats on your closings.

Donna.. Thanks for the congratulations.  I'll be glad to refer people moving to Austin in your direction.  I only had one client this year moving to Texas and that was to Dallas.  That was close... but not close enough.

Connie.. That is why ActiveRain is such a great website.  We are all here to support one another.  Keep blogging and commenting.. you never know when/where the next lead will come from.

Diane.. I agreee with you, but at the same time, most people surf the internet.. so if a buyer/or seller are looking for service, there is a better chance of being a part of ActiveRain.

Esko.. I like your comment.  However I do disagree with one thing.  You snooze you loose.  If others aren't blogging, good.  More change for us... and you.  Happy Thanksgiving.
