Since that time, my website has jumped up on the search engines from page 8 in January to page 1 today. I recently had 2 people contact me as a result of a google search that turned up my active rain profile. That would not have happened had it not been for the rain."

"I don't know if this is a Success Story, but it is a cute one....A couple call my husband and I to set up an appointment to list their house. The wife is extremely pregnant. We sat down to discuss their options and needs, in the process we discovered that they had already purchased and moved into their new home. Her greatest wish was not to be burdened with a new baby girl and two mortgages. We listed their house on 10/12/2008, went under contract on 10/29/2008, closed on 12/2/2009, and their new daughter was born the first week of November. She got here wish in addition to a second Love of her Life."
Kathleen Culley (Buyers Only Lighthouse Realty): Real Estate Broker/Owner in Clearwater, FL Kathleen Culley (Buyers Only Lighthouse Realty) said about 15 years ago,
"This is a client testimony I received after responding to a request on Active Rain:


I would like to thank you for all the help that you have given to me and my husband in the past six months. When I started to contact Florida realtors you were the only one who was attentive to my needs. You were there from the beginning to make this very important decision easier. Although we sent you what seemed like thousands of emails and phone calls you replied extraordinarily fast. My husband and I were very anxious about our four day trip to view the condos. It was a whirlwind weekend but you were very patient. I relied on your expertise and knowledge of the community to help us with our decision. That was a great choice on our part.

When I say that we could not have done it without you, I am not underestimating that at all. You have helped us through the closing process and dealings with the condo management company. Since we have solidified our purchase, three of our friends are now interested in coming to visit us and look at condos. So you will have three more retirements to make happy.

Words can’t express how relieved we are that you are there making this transitional time so easy for everyone. I would recommend you as a realtor to everyone I know.

Thank you very, very much.

Bob & Melinda Joncas"

"As a relatively new agent of 14 months when you are starting out you wondering "How am I ever going to learn it all" or will I learn it quick enough...But after becoming a ActiveRain member and reading all of the blogs, asking questions, and getting so much support from the other member's you realize you will never know it all and everything changes so quickly that it's a learning process to all agents new or seasoned and that we are all in this together. Active rain is a great source of information, referral business and motivation to all keep learning..

"I am pleased to say my expertise and blogging about Banyan Harbor condos for sale on Kauai resulted in another Happy Buyer! A wonderful buyer contacted me, already interested in the project, but wanting just a little more information. Since I had sold three units in the complex recently, it was quite easy for me to answer his questions and direct him to the right resources. Years of real estate experience and market knowledge really helped to provide my client with exactly what he needed to take the leap! I am pleased to say he is still happy with his purchase and emails or calls me consistantly! Mahalo (thank you) Active Rain!"
