Brian Habel (HomeSmart Advantage): Real Estate Agent in Saint George, UT Brian Habel (HomeSmart Advantage) said over 8 years ago,
"I recently have gone through some struggles slipping in the search engines. I became active doing social media and my SEO gal told me that my activity level in Active Rain can really help if I can strengthen my presence. I've noted not only has doing things boosted my rankings on the search engines, but I have found a whole family here of very similar minded professionals who all seem to care. I have come to appreciate my colleagues as more than just there to get a deal done, but I've learned, because of Active Rain, that Realtors are for the most part a pretty good group of people. And Active Rain appears to host the better Realtors looking to improve their professionalism and expertise. It really does appear to be a genuine bunch of Realtors taking more and more pride in what they do for people because of Active Rain. I think it has become a credit to my business and social life to find and network more on Active Rain. It makes me want to improve myself and my professionalism through healthy interactions with other like-minded professionals."

"Active Rain has allowed me the opportunity to serve more people in the community. The first week I started with Active Rain, I met a young couple who recently married and were fortunate to be able to afford a home. We met by week's end. They felt it would be good to live up the Peninsula. Similar to many buyers, they felt they wanted to be closer to the wife's work. After a thorough and Free consultation, we found they wanted to start a family and the husband was going to school in the South Bay. After counseling them, they determined it would be easier to live closer to the Husband's work when they start their family. I sold them "Thee Home" of their dreams in two weeks. They had a great lender and we negotiated well for what they wanted in the time that they wanted. The home is marvelous. This was made possible due to the Active Rain Community and the way it reaches the public and end-consumer. Thanks Active Rain for making another Happy Customer!"
