"My first introduction to ActiveRain was a very pleasant one, and totally unexpected. I received a call from a California Realtor just a week after I had joined ActiveRain as a member, but not as a Rainmaker. The agent stated that he had studied my profile, liked what he saw and wanted to refer a client to me. Of course, I accepted immediately, made contact with the client, discussed their needs and wants, and when they arrived, sold them a home two hours after we met. I still did not know where the lead came from as the other Realtor had been vague, and I just assumed that they found me through some obscure website, but then I decided to question further and found out that it was my profile on ActiveRain that brought the contact. Naturally I became a Rainmaker as the program had already paid for itself for many years to come. The clients are now happy in their new home in Grants Pass. Thank you ActiveRain!"

"I first joined Active Rain in February 2007 when I was transitioning my business from interior design to home staging. I knew nothing about blogging, social networking or how to effectively market my home staging business in a cost effective manner. I found a community of very generous home stagers, real estate agents and other real estate service providers that have helped me grow my business much more quickly than I could have done on my own. My website is now on the first page of Google for ALL my short and long tail search terms, something I learned about on Active Rain. Thanks AR. Its wonderful to be able to participate in this community, personally & professionally!"

"Active Rain has been a great way for me to get connected to other Home Stagers across the country.
Also a great way to connect with Real estate Agents in my area, who are one of my prime sources of
referrals. This is a success story for me because I have actually learned how to blog and I am fairly consistent at it.
I have learned a lot from my fellow bloggers! It is not as hard as I always had in my head that it was.

Even thou my industry of Home Staging is fairly new there are lots of fellow home stagers across the country. THis is a great opportunity to share tips and learn something new from them and they from me. I also enjoy seeing the others before and after pictures. There are some very talented people out there:)

Active Rain Thank you for creating this great platform for us to connect to other Home Stagers and sellers and buyers out there. My recent success story actually happened because of Active Rain, because I have learned how to blog following my fellow Active Rain bloggers I was found by a seller in Kentucky, who would probably not have even heard
of me if she wasn't an Active Rain member herself and had seen my blog posts!
So thank you again Active Rain and I am looking forward to many more Success Stories to share with you.."

My realtor partners came to me in desperation stating their client had received loan approval, loan contingencies were removed then the loan was denied on a technicality. The clients deposit was in jeopardy and they were going to lose the home. I was able to get these loans approved and close in 10 business days meeting the original close of escrow date! Needles to say the clients and their realtors were extremely happy."
