"After being an AR member since 2007 I finally decided late last year to start blogging a bit more regularly. In March of this year I received a call from a lady here in Turlock that needed to sell her home. She was on the internet looking for short sale information and found me. She called me and asked a bunch of questions about short sales. After answering her questions we agreed to meet a couple days later. I listed her home and had an offer about a month later. We had the short sale approval in about 3 weeks and even closed a few days earlier. When I asked how she had found me she said it was some website "called rain something.""

"The real estate industry is very fortunate to have a platform such as Active Rain. AR is great because it serves several purposes.

Blogging on Active Rain has peppered me throughout the search engines, especially in our local area. By blogging about local events, I appear near the top of the first page of search results several times per year. I know those blogs are responsible for several sales annually.

I've also learned a lot about real estate, technology and social media from AR. It's a great information clearing house, all for us!"

"The exposure on ActiveRain has definitely been a boon to my business. I see significantly more traffic directed to my personal web site. Posting relevant information and reading the posts of other members is getting me more comfortable with the blogging experience, in addition to making new friends and business contacts from all over the country.

The consistency of blogging on ActiveRain recently brough some pleasnt activity at one of my Open Houses. I had done a Localism post on the area a couple of days prior, and a blog on the Open House the same morning. A potential client came from 20 miles away to see the listing, and another owner in the same complex stopped because of seeing the Open House posting online. Both indicated that they woud contact me soon for help with their real estate transactions. I would not have reached either of them with tradational open house marketing"

"I was introduced to Active Rain by a Scottsdale Arizona loan officer named Ricky Khamis; Ricky spent several hours tutoring me on the AR platform and helped me get my internet presence moving with AR. I have closed 3 transactions (one financed and 2 cash deals) because of what Ricky helped me learn about Active Rain. I can also say that I have had several valuable phone conversations with good prospects who are searching for a new home and an agent to help them.
I began using AR only a few short months ago and already I dominate Google in several key areas because of the effort I have put into using Active Rain.
Thank you Active Rain, and thank you Ricky Khamis of Amerifirst"
