"At this time I have only been with Active Rain for a couple of months. It has been very informative and interesting. There are different topics being discussed every day from all parts of the country. I love hearing how other states do business and also what we all have in common.

(2 months later) Being on AR everyday has certainly taken my thought processes to another level. The amount of information is unbelievable from how to interact with the social networks to obtain the best SEO. I am completely HOOKED. Thanks Active Rain!!!!"

Raine Carraway: Real Estate Agent in Lenoir, NC Raine Carraway said over 6 years ago,
"I see my ActiveRain success story is twofold. The first is that ActiveRain has made me a better, more knowledgeable agent. I am able to connect and share information from real estate professional from all over, and to learn the "real life' details on dealing with emerging trends in my are by others who are already dealing with them in their locations. For example, I first learned about short sales on ActiveRain, 6 months or so before the term was ever used in my office or local area, and was able to learn about them before I started showing them, which gave me a leg up on the competition, and made it much easier to explain the pros and cons to my clients.

ActiveRain has also brought me success in terms of leads and internet exposure. I've received several calls based off internet searches, and my ActiveRain blog has really helped make me visible in Google searches for my local area. It also helps potential clients connect, by giving them a source of free, no pressure, information, and by giving them a little insight into my "voice" and personality, before choosing to contact me."
