Janie Killian-Sullivan (Killian Properties (Oklahoma & Texas) ): Real Estate Broker/Owner in Waxahachie, TX Janie Killian-Sullivan (Killian Properties (Oklahoma & Texas) ) said over 11 years ago,
"I've always just done a Google search for a Realtor in an area for which I needed an agent for a referral but this time I used ActiveRain. Wow, what a difference! The response was immediate and each one listed reasons why they would be the best agent for my friend referral. The agent I chose, I picked because she said she was the expert in the two areas my clients were interested. I'd posted one of the areas but not the other so I felt she was the perfect fit.

I have to admit, I felt a little bad picking one over the others. Kind of like lining everyone up on the wall and picking teams for dodge ball. Ha!

All in all, this is the place to go for agent referrals, whether you are seeking an agent or whether you just want to get your name out there hoping to receiving a referral. I'm definitely SOLD!"

"I've been working with a buyer from the Midwest who found me through my internet presence. He had read my blog posts and looked at my web site. The purchase is in excess of $1,000,000 and closes at the end of this week. The buyer told me, "Gretchen, you're obviously the expert in the area from what I've seen online, so I'd like to work with you for my purchase." We looked at homes for two days, and narrowed down his preference fairly quickly. Now we're just waiting for the final closing documents.
UPDATE - the property closed and the buyers referred two more transactions to Gretchen."

"I first Started staging in my home country Ireland. The first Home we staged sold within weeks of been on the market after we staged it. We beat the competition of other homes in the same area. The Agent we worked with was amazed and thrilled at the effect having a home staged made such an impact on the outcome of the sale and the asking price. My European experience adds to the quality of services we now offer in Orlando Florida."
