I went to an education class and sitting front of me was an agent and she turned around and said"You are Patty Clark. I see you on Active Rain" Who knew I would meet someone in the same town, the same class at the same time from Active Rain. Now I feel like someone is reading my posts."

"I now have my first home under contract that I can attribute directly to Active Rain. I have been blogging on Active Rain for over a year and have been amazed by all that I have learned through the information so freely shared by others "in the rain". Whether is is SEO, social media or real estate skills there is a wealth of information on this site. So the icing on the cake was when I picked up the phone one Sunday morning and it was another Active Rainer from Maryland who wanted to refer a client to me. This Realtor had read my blog and thought that I would be a good fit for her client who wanted to buy a home in Virginia. The client came to Charlottesville and we hit it off immediately. We now have a home under ratified contract and are waiting for some repairs to be finished per the home inspection before closing. And all thanks to the power of Active Rain."

"I had been reluctant for years to start blogging, not being sure if I really had something to write about. No even sure if anyone would even want to read what I write about. Now that I have started blogging, I am have begun looking at the way I run my own business and have stepped it up a notch. If I am showing other agents great ways to grow their business, I better be doing it myself! So after a short time of writing my thoughts and ideas, I just had my first featured post on AR!"

"Almost on a weekly basis a potential lead calls me and I ask them how they were referred to me. My most interesting story is when someone was driving and called me when they were 3 miles away from my office. It was a brother and sister who both lived out of town and they told me they read my blog and they would like to meet me to list their deceased father's home. I really thought it was a hoax and so I told my boss who was in his office at the time that two people were coming in the office to list with me. He thought I was just pulling his leg, so after they left 1/2 hour later, I went back in his office and showed him the signed papers. His first reaction was you have to be kidding me. He is now a true believer of blogging and especially Active Rain.
The clients, the other agents I have met, all through my active rain experience make me sing in the rain every day!
Thanks so much!"

"What some of our happy customers are saying about NPM Group (Rent KC Now).

You Rock! Thanks so much! We're working on obtaining the formal approval in hopes that I can schedule a lease signing as early as today. Sara, housing specialist
Thank you for the follow up. I love doing business with your company! Thanks again for your courteous assistance. Elise
We really enjoyed working with you and thought you did a great job getting our property rented in a very timely manner. Tara
I have been very pleased with the service I have received from you and the staff at Rent KC. Thank you, Jack
Once again, thanks for everything, Karen says you and your staff are wonderful to work with. Any tips are very much appreciated and we hope you find a match for our home soon. Brad
I appreciate being able to work with you. I was concerned at first, not sure if I was going to be able to see the properties. You came through with what I needed and helped me finalize the lease. That was a big win for me-Thanks, Steve
I was very pleased by the fact that we were able to rent the townhouse of Foxfield Village in a relatively short period of time. I have a number of townhomes in the OP area and will definitely utilize your services in the future. Ken
Thanks, I appreciate how easy the process was to get done. Steve
Leslie, you've been very responsive and understanding of our particular requirements. RKC has behaved in the most professional manner. I will definitely recommend you and your firm to our other employees. Sincerely - Maria
Just wanted to let you know that we took possession of the house yesterday and I've started moving stuff in. I thank you for your help in showing us a few houses. I appreciated the way that you handled things with this house in help in to ensure that we got the house. Your efforts and patience worked well. Thanks again for your part of this transaction. Dee
Good job to you and the Rent KC staff for getting qualified renters in our home. We value your screening process and leave a lot to your ability to find qualified applicants. I hope to continue our business relationship throughout the coming years. Eric
I wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for everything you've done for us! We are so thankful that everything has worked out the way it has and appreciate your time and patience!! Warm regards, Jean
Have only positive remarks to make about you and the service I received from you and RKCN. I have found you to be professional, pleasant, and efficient - and naturally I am pleased with the end result. I have, in fact, already recommended your company to an acquaintance who is contemplating using a property management company to rent their home. Good luck to you this summer as you continue to match renters and tenants, home owners and buyers. Regards, Pam
Allowing you to manage our property has been a great decision. I manage a multimillion dollar company and know the effort required to provide and coordinate services. Even with this knowledge, anytime I have tried to manage my own investments my career suffers and my anxiety rises. You have managed the property from the date we purchased it and this is the third renter in the property. A lease was signed 3 weeks after we closed on the sale. If I remember correctly you had it marketed for 14 days. I believe it has been vacant a total of one week since. From a property owner's point of view, that is fantastic! Jillian
It has been pleasure to work with you! Your professionalism, attention to detail - not to mention friendliness - has made a tremendous difference to John and me both! This move is turning out to be quite stressful, thank goodness for you! Your continued assistance is the one thing I know I can count on. I am very confident that we will HIGHLY recommend your services to other contractors coming in the area with Black and Veatch! Joanie
Thank you for your work to secure another lease for my rental property. I have used Rent KC for years and continue to appreciate the professionalism of the staff. Thank you for your continual help, direction and follow up. Jeff
The greatest compliment I can pay you and your staff is my eagerness to use your services again. I have been extremely happy with Rent KC and would recommend you to anyone in this market, Aaron
Thanks again for the effort you put forth in renting out my home. I have been very pleased with how quickly you were able to find a renter for me, particularly in the seasonally slow time of year. Greg"

"I have made technology a major part of my marketing plan.

In June 2008, I began my efforts to achieve front page status on a Google Search without paying extra for clicks or advertising. ActiveRain has made this possible and better still, on Saturday, January 31, 2009, I got a call from a buyer who wants to buy in the co-operative complex I specialize in, Interlaken Gardens, Eastchester, NY. They called another office and were told there were no listings (we actually have nine active listings right now) so they Googled Interlaken and my name came up on top of the front page. I owe this success to ActiveRain and I am more determined than ever to utilize blog posts and tags to keep my name on top.

Thank you ActiveRain!"
