Nelya Calev (John L Scott): Real Estate Agent in Bellevue, WA Nelya Calev (John L Scott) said almost 12 years ago,
"I just sold my listing via ActiveRain. The last two buyers (including the one that finally closed on the house) came through ActiveRain. They saw my listing here and contacted me privately. I showed them the house. When I overheard that they had purchased they home few years back with an agent at my office I suggested that they go back to her and she was very prompt in getting things turned around quickly. Ofcourse I followed up with that agent next day to make sure they had contacted her. To make this long story short they actually closed in two weeks. That's a record for today's lending industry.
I have often wondered whether all of the time I spend blogging here is really worth it. However, with this one sale all of the time was definitely well spent.

So thank you ActiveRain! You are the best!!!!!"
