Kathy Leimkuhler (First Team Real Estate): Real Estate Sales Representative in Orange, CA Kathy Leimkuhler (First Team Real Estate) said almost 12 years ago,
"I met my client Mark at an open house for a $3,000,000 property. The house was no way his style, size, view, actually everything was wrong. He was not sure if he wanted land or a home, but he had a very specific home in mind. We searched together for 3 years, in both South and North Orange County for the right home. We put in two offers but lost them both. The home could not be found until one day driving around his favorite area I spotted the perfect view he was looking for. The problem was the house was not for sale! Well the story is long but after door knocking, negotiations, introductions, inspections, and lots more negotiations we got Mark in the right home and we gave the home owners an opportunity to move on to their next beautiful home! Bringing a happy buyer and seller together is priceless!"

"Do you wonder why all the titles above are bolded, linked to my website, and contain the same words?

My ActiveRain success story starts with a job I had with a TERRIBLE lead generation company. We sold lead programs to real estate agents. As hard as I tried ... the help I gave my clients was never up to my own personal standards.

One (blessed) day I decided to begin to learn how to REALLY help real estate agents. So, I created an ActiveRain profile and enrolled in one of the ActiveRain webinars.

It was my first lesson in search engine optimization. What an eye-opener! I found out that I can essentially "train" search engine "spiders" to promote my business for me by doing a few simple things differently. Don't know what SEO is? Well, you REALLY should.

The immediate point is ... The titles above are phrased the way they are and look the way they do because search engines (like Google) just LOVE it.

The main point is: It was an ActiveRain webinar that set me on the path to launch my own business. And now ... whoa! I'm doing what I love ... people actually love what I do for them ... and the future has never been brighter.

I am my own ActiveRain Success Story!

Because of my recent Active Rain posts I now am the community spokesman for several of our Owasso neighborhoods. I am contacted constantly by clients who read my writings on the internet that were and are originally posted at Active Rain. One client read my blog concerning selling real estate in a hyper inflation market and listed his house the next week with me. In short, I love Active Rain for the continued exposure it gives me in the world of marketing real estate!"
Bonnie & Terry Westbrook, Grand Rapids MI Real Estate (Westbrook Realty): Services for Real Estate Pros in Ada, MI Bonnie & Terry Westbrook, Grand Rapids MI Real Estate (Westbrook Realty) said almost 12 years ago,
"We recently received an email to show a home directly from Active Rain. This isn't so unusual but it was a listing we lost to another agent 6 months ago. The buyer told us she googled the listing address to see if she could find out more information. Our old blog about the listing came up in the search first (thank you Active Rain)with great photos led her to call us. The current agent had poor photos and few of them. The buyer wanted to work with an agent who was professional and knew about the property. Since I do the pictures and blogs for our listings, I was thrilled to hear this. Thanks to Active Rain, even months after the listing expired, we are still the experts. We sold the property to the buyers and they will move in shortly."
