"My real estate partner and I have the same success story. While our website was crashing on a daily basis, and we were lucky to be receiving 10 hits per month for a while, we were both found by past clients and, now current clients, by way of Active Rain. Their results go so high on search engines, Active Rain members are found in what is otherwise a wild unknown on the Internet. I'd rather pay Active Rain for their hard work and the fact that they make me feel like all the members are part of a big team. With over 200,000 members, the site cannot be beaten. If you have any involvement in real estate, please don't join. I'd love to keep this as my little secret, but I don't think its working! Thank you Active Rain."

"When a California client made an offer on a home and then headed back home to CA, I was told that the builder had just accepted another person's offer on the home. When I contacted my clients on their way home, they were heart broken. Long story short, I asked the builder if he had an available lot on which to construct that exact home, at that same price, in the same subdivision. He did, and we got the home built and closed with the buyers in CA, having seen only the pictures of progress I sent! They love their new Nc home!!"
