"What is a phone consultation is not… It is not a sales pitch, nor is a hard sell for you to do
business with us. We are extremely interested in word‐of‐mouth advertising and referrals. Since we count on our clients to do that for us , they (YOU) must be extremely happy with our service and PRICING first ! Therefore, hard closing is not our way
It doesn’t work with this philosophy. So, when you call in, you can expect education and consultation, not sales and hard closing."

"I signed up with ActiveRain back in the fall of 2007 because I thought by becoming a member it would actually help increase customer traffic to my website (who doesn't want that right?), while also helping me raise my Google pagerank (which it has). They way I use AR is very similar to most folks although my strategy is little different. I create short blog posts on their site talking about various market statistics, real estate topics, new listings and such, and then embed HTML links back to my own website using keywords. My response hasn't been too bad either, just to give you an idea...since August 11, 2007 when I first signed up, I have received over a dozen referrals from other agents introducing me to new customers or, clients. As of today (July 29th, 2009) I'm ranked number 4 out of 4,180 other members in the State of Virginia and ranked number 23 nationally out of 153,754 members. My site profile alone has been viewed 12,928 times. A true no-nonsense approach to getting great exposure!"

"I have been on Activerain for a few years now. I am also a featured agent on Realtor.com, partially because a lot of my asset companies require it. Being on both sites, I have experienced almost as many leads from buyers through Activerain as I have through Realtor.com. I have not maintained my listings on the Activerain site until recently but have experienced that Activerain, even though I use it as a sounding board to those in the industry, is a great source for buyers AND sellers."
