"When our son was in the Marines and in Iraq twice we got so much support from others in this community. Two Christmases ago a group of realtors from Atlanta, GA sent him several boxes of presents for him and his unit. Both he and they were totally stunned to come back from a mission and find these large boxes, eight of them I believe, waiting for them. It really helped them to know that people back home who did not even know them were willing to send them stuff that showed they cared and supported them. It made me feel so thankful to be part of a group who could reach out to each other through their children by acts of such graciousness and hospitality. Thank you."

"November 2008:
Active Rain brought a client directly to me!!

This week was proof positive of the results of Active Rain and blogging!

We have a very successful team of realtors in my office. They are successful because they are a team of realtors who refer only within their team.

This week, a prospective client had been attempting to reach them, but their phone line was down. So, do you know what the client did? He Googled Keller Williams in Hickory. Care to guess what happened? He pulled up my name first in the Google results and called me directly. My blog with Active Rain lead him directly to my contact information.

If I ever needed proof of the results of using Active Rain, this was it! And let me tell you....there were some jealous realtors in my office when word spread of what had happened. I love it! Thank you Active Rain!!"
