Why I feel so relaxed when lead comes from Active Rain

By
Real Estate Agent with Local-n-Global Realty, Cleveland and International Real Estate Solution BRK 2007000844

Sometimes I have that strange and totally wrong feeling that I do not earn money which I get helping people to buy or sell Real Estate in Greater Cleveland. Why? Because I love doing Real Estate! How can you get paid for love?

I love Real estateYes, Real estate is my primary business. Yes, I take it seriously and diligently, but -

I enjoy meeting new people, asking all the questions and listening to all these very deep and personal stories which my clients share with me. I feel so rewarded to help people finding a right home for growing family or buying the perfect piece of land to build that Dream house for Mrs. Perfect.

I am thrilled to help selling homes in Solon, Lyndhurst, Mayfield Heights, Aurora, because Web.2.0. marketing helps me to attract right buyers for my listings AND is my favorite activity. Exploring new marketing tools to promote my clients' listings, creating widgets, mini-sites, videos and slide shows is my hobby, my favorite game.

Finally, speaking of blogging at Active Rain. I love Active Rain! That's why when new customer-to be calls me and says that he knows me from Active Rain, I immediately start smiling. Miraculously, I feel relaxed and start speaking with total stranger like he is my dear friend, ONLY because he mentions Active Rain. That's exactly what happened this afternoon when I received a call from wholesale investor from NJ. That's exactly what happened a week ago when I got the call from investor from Finland who eventually hired me to represent him in purchasing few investment properties in Shaker Heights and University Heights.

Calls coming from Active Rain are always very easy and smooth. Interesting but it almost never happens when you follow up on any other Internet leads. Is it just me or it's  a trend that Lead Conversion Rate for Active Rain is much higher than for any other Internet portals or sites?

Active Rain has this great side effect, which I call Built-In Trust. Friendly, professional, yet HUMAN environment of Active Rain community is contageous. That's a magic of Active Rain.

That is exactly how I felt when I got a call this morning from a Million Dollar Listing that I am meeting with on Sunday morning...
