ActiveRain Success Stories

Jo Ann Israel (Exclusive Realty & Mortgage): Services for Real Estate Pros in Los Angeles, CA Jo Ann Israel (Exclusive Realty & Mortgage) said almost 12 years ago,
"Twas the year 2008 when I turned to ActiveRain in search of desperate answers to desperate questions I was having with my short sale files. The very first short sale I handled had three lienholders, and I was at the brink of letting it go because the challenges were overwhelming. Then I met quite a few good agents at AR who unselfishly shared their experiences with short sales. I listened. And then got back to work. I was ready. Two years later, here I am, short sale trained, and ready to face more challenges in this arena of short sales. Thanks to the motivation & inspiration I get everyday from the AR community. My real estate practice has been more meaningful because of ActiveRain."

"I learn so much from reading the articles provided by the members. Though my personal contributions are limited I receive the daily digest of articles and really find timely information. I reac most of them daily - the better the headline the more likely I am to read the article.

The RainCamp I attend this past year in Los Angeles was amazing - I learned so much and I've put together a FaceBook ad based upon the training I received at RainCamp. Thank you AR for providing such a great opportunity to network with other agents in my area and to be more successful."
