Thank you Active Rain and Craig Rutman!

By
Real Estate Mortgage Broker with Sierra Pacific Mortgage Raleigh

Thank you Active Rain and Craig Rutman!  I want to take a moment to say thank you to all of the great people I have met on Active Rain. 

It all started when my friend Craig Rutman introduced me to what I now refer to as the "Facebook of real estate".  Didn't know much about this blogging stuff but I soon learned and made it a permanent and important part of my business.

I just closed another successful transaction, on time with Craig Rutman this morning that initially originated from our dear friend Debe Maxwell. 

Last week I was able to meet Carla Freund for a cup of coffee and received a purchase referral from Carla Muss Jacobs.  A couple of weeks ago I had a nice conversation with Jeff Dowler and was able to assist my friend Jim Frimmer with some VA questions.  Andi Grant and I converse regularly and work on purchase transactions from time to time.

I think what I didn't consider about Active Rain was the friendships I would make.  I initially thought blogging was just putting my info on the internet but was I wrong!  I have had the pleasure of working with many here on Active Rain and have made close relationships with both agents and other loan officers. 

I have met many of you as I travel from my East Coast offices to my West Coast offices and meeting some of you for the first time is like looking up an old friend.  I am grateful for Active Rain and for all who participate.  There isn't a week that goes by where someone from the Rain doesn't touch my life.

Debe - Welcome.  Great people and I thank you for the referral to Craig and I!  Looking forward to closing more soon : )

Richard and Beth - It will come if you get involved.  Blogging alone won't do it.  BEcome part of the community and call or meet others.

Jason - Yeah I know.  We'll grab a beer soon I promise!

Harry -  True.  There are a lot outside of our area as well.  Lending is not a local business.  Being accessible and providing fast, efficient service is what counts.

Craig - Thanks buddy.  Twp closings this month we have worked on and both closed on time with happy customers.  You were instrumental in this which will be the topic of my next blog post that isn't rate market specific.

Alan - Ha ha!

Carla - Thanks Carla.  I know that I can't be all things to all people but as you said the ones that we have worked on together have always had happy endings!  Thank you for your trust and friendship

Mike - Thanks Mike.  Yes I have made a lot of relationships along the way.  I could easily add another 50 names to this post!

Erica - it does!  How cool is that?  A large family

Tammie - I am grateful for the kudos and the friendships I have made here in the rain.

Christine - Agreed.  I met you a few years ago at AR camp.  We will have to meet up again soon

Amy - Hey Amy, we plan on being there this weekend for the pirate invasion.  My daughter Chelsea is really excited!

Debbie - It is a lot of fun.  Especially when you meet folks you have been interacting with for years who live far away and then suddenly you meet them in person.  Really cool!

Richie - You hit the nail on the head...you reap what you sow, or as someone once said....I am planting an orchard.

Nevin- belated Happy Birthday!  This is what ActiveRain is all about.  Yes, it's blogging, SEO, Google Juice, whatever, but the relationships you build here are priceless.
