First & foremost, AR taught me how to blog.  As a result, nearly 30% of my biz comes from my website.  2nd, I have met some great local realtors who have referred biz to me (and have become friends).  3rd, I get some great marketing ideas on here.  4th, I've better learned about what makes realtors tick and that in turn has enabled me to better interact w/ them.

I've only been on AR since October 2014.  I haven't seen any benefits to my business thus far, but I don't think it's been long enough to make an accurate assessment.

I'm looking forward to reading what others have to say.

Evelyn - I think AR has helped me the most with all of the amazing stuff I have learned; blogging, marketing, sales, human relations, and overall real estate industry education. Secondly, the people that I have met are amazing, and I have even received a referral from the site. It is the best site I have seen for real estate agents.

I have made a lot of real estate contacts across the country. That helps me with referrals. I've sent out many of them. The most important one is very personal. My grandmother lived to be 100 years old. I knew at some point the family was going to have to sell that house, It's a great house and not an old lady house that lived in there. But I digress. AR made it easy to find an agent referral.

Active rain has kept me on the from page of the internet in my area for over 4 years and I don't pay a penny like many other brokerages do.
