It's an Active Rain Sale!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Home Connection

 

Yesterday I closed on my first ActiveRain sale.  I had received an e-mail a few months ago from a seller who found me on ActiveRain.  After meeting with them I listed their home and after dozens of showings we finally got an acceptable offer on the home.  They were happy to have the home sold (now able to settle an estate) and I was thrilled to find new clients through ActiveRain.

Not only is this a great forum and network for real estate professionals, but it's a wonderful way for the public to learn about the services we offer.  What a great way to connect with people.  Thanks ActiveRain!

Hi Lynn,

I was just curious how the lead found you on Active Rain? I'm new to it.

Thanks

Liz - Thanks for stopping by.  I've been busy with teaching some classes at a regional community college, selling real estate, and coaching our agents, as well as trying to keep things afloat.  How are things going for you?  I sure hope that 2009 brings more buyers!

Lynn - Ditto

Eileen - My thoughts exactly.

Rebecca - It is isn't it?  It's a great way to share ideas and learn new info.

Jean - I've had several potential clients find me via my blogs on ActiveRain.  My blogs tend to get higher Google ranking than my website.  There's definitely something to this blogging business!  Keep it up and you'll find it out for yourself.  Best of luck.
