It's been a long road baby with almost 5 years under our belts. Our membership has surpassed 200,000 while maintaining the core values that this great platform was built upon.
It is with great happiness and excitement that we announce to you the new name of ActiveRain.
The name ActiveRain was something we kind of stumbled upon. Our CEO and Co-founder, Jonathan, always went by the moniker Rainmaker online in the late 90's. When we were thinking of launching ActiveRain, we went into Jon's domain names and ActiveRain seemed like a good fit. We are based in Seattle, and we hoped that in true Rainmaker fashion, our site would be a source of business for those who used it. We think that's been the case so far.
So why change you ask?
We wanted to find a name that would resonate with consumers and carry us forward in our quest to have consumers associate this site with great information about real estate. Since the vast majority of our visitors every month are consumers looking for real estate information, we felt this new name would make them think 'real estate' more than the old name.
We could not be more appreciative of the support you've shown ActiveRain these last five years. We look forward to that same support as Houseble! We hope that you love it just as much as we do!
