ActiveRain Success Stories

DIANA MELERUD (SUPERIOR SERVICE REAL ESTATE): Real Estate Agent in Brooklyn, NY DIANA MELERUD (SUPERIOR SERVICE REAL ESTATE) said over 11 years ago,
"Great help in a tough market!

Diana Melerud and Vince De Lorenzo was recommended by a freind when we decided to sell our home on 82nd Street in Brooklyn. The market was in turmoil and our previous broker was not helpful, never kept us updated and ended up costing us money as our homes value declined. Diana Vince started with an open house, advised us as to how to price the house to sell and in a short time we had a buyer. At the time we thought the price should have been more but we decided to go with the sale and Thank God we did. I would recommend Vince to anyone looking to sell especially in this kind of market. His advice and experience paid off!!"

We have yet to work on a deal together but it's bound to happen. Soon I would guess. We've formed a mutually beneficial partnership based on our combined knowledge, experience, ideas & vision. Of course '10 is far from a record year; however, we made good decisioins and networked to the outer depths our our networks. I feel good about the future and Lisa shares that outlook. I wish her continued success and thank you."

"My first day at activerain.

I finished my profile, created a blog, commented on 10 posts, joined 3 groups and think I have found a wonderful social community which will help me grow in my business. I have connected with professionals all over the country and subscribed to blogs which are interesting as well as humorous.

I see how successful rainmakers work and want to emulate them in my behavior.]

My 2nd day at activerain.

I spent over 2 hours completing a new blog.. going to fast I clicked to send it to all my groups. I should not have done that as one was a travel group. I clicked on the delete button thinking it would delete from the travel group and it deleted the entire blog.. sigh... so I did a search on how to restore a deleted blog... yes, someone else had done it and found I could click my back button but no luck as I have explorer.. the comments indicated if you have foxfire you can always go back in your browser, so that is on the list of things to do... in the mean time Jeremy was on the discussion and she he could work magic and find it! I contacted Jeremy and.... Jeremy you are my hero. I logged back on and there it was. Thank you activerain!"

However, with Active Rain, it has been a pleasure to network with like minded professionals, all in the same "boat" as you, to create and solve problems, to share ideas with what works and what does not work, and to be there as moral support for your fellow agent."
