ActiveRain Success Stories

Caroline  Gosselin (Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty): Real Estate Agent in Short Hills, NJ Caroline Gosselin (Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty) said over 6 years ago,
"Active Rain is such a unique online community at the cutting edge of EVERYTHING! I joined to be able to network and blog and being new to the business at the time, I thought I could learn quite a bit from all the information sharing. There is SO MUCH information and I am never disappointed when I log on every morning! I attended the Rain Camp last year in NYC and was blown away – it inspired me to start blogging on a regular basis. I would say that my most recent Active Rain story would be getting my own blog post sent to me and thousands of others on the Google Alerts for my town, Maplewood, NJ. THAT was EMPOWERING!"

"Mike and Anita became friends though my Active Rain blog and website. They followed my weekly posts and we talked several times over the phone. It took a year for them to get their down payment saved and then came the call. "We read about a community you wrote about on your blog and we would like to visit it tomorrow". The great people at Lennar Homes worked with us and June 1st they moved in to their new home.

Nick was having trouble finding an apartment in North Austin that fit his budget: "I found Alan in Austin when I was on google looking for an apartment. He stuck with me until I found the perfect place. I refer him to all my friends" Nick

"I knew almost nothing about Austin. Alan took the time to show me the city, listen to my needs and help me find the home I dreamed of near the city I have fallen in love with. Thanks Alan. Karen S."

"Participating in the Active Rain conversation has helped me to join the real estate community at large. I have learned about trends and opportunities through reading blogs and lurking in the background, staying out of the rain, so to speak. Moreover, I have occasionally ventured forth and blogged a bit from time to time. By blogging on Active Rain and watching my points summary, I have learned to do the right thins necessary to drive prospects to my websites. Active Rain has literally taught me how to do the things necessary to increase my business. I have referred business to others and have received referrals too. In short, I have both contributed and profitted from Active Rain."

"My home staging success story is how my staging helped a home sellers receive an offer during their first open house. Here is a testimonial from the home owners:


"We wanted to give you some long overdue feedback on your services. It was terrific! We first met you in mid November, 2009, at the suggestion of our realtor. You prepared a thorough report for us letting us know how to best enhance the features of our home to market it for sale. The bound report had descriptions, pictures, prices, and stores where we could buy the items that you said would serve to give the home a "wow factor". It also contained other suggestions on rearranging, repairing, improving, and generally beautifying the home for sale. After immersing in the "do over", we initiated the marketing of the home on December 13 th.

Thanks to you and our realtor, we got an offer on the same day! We are still in disbelief that, in these times, we sold our home immediately and closed by January 22nd, 5 weeks after going on the market. We just wanted you to know that your service was exceptionally important to the sale of our home. It also impressed us that you took real interest in our goal and became part of our team. Thanks again for an invaluable service. We highly recommend you to folks that are selling and those that just want to beautify their homes."
