Leaderboard. State. County. City.

Check and see if they've been actually 'active' and if there's any evidence that they actuallly 'do business'  . . . this is why you should write good posts and ask good questions. This is a good question.

You can ask around if anyone knows anyone.

Once you have a couple of prospectives, check them out and see if YOU like them. Then see if you can discern whether the client will. People I like may not be for everyone. I'm not, after all. LOL

The good ones are busy . . . but responsive. 

Ignore the referral section. It don' work.

well .... that section hasn't been used in a few years. Don't know if it will be revitalized with the update.

Best thing to do is go to the state sections & drill down by county, town, etc.


post where you are sending the referral & maybe people here know an agent that will help you.

I generally go to the state and county and see if I know anyone.  Failing that I do, I don't use AR I use the internet.

Just ask in this section or you can write a blog.  There are a lot of members that will help you find someone.  This is a very helpful group.

Welcome to Active Rain Rodney!

Lots of happenings here...the origianl owners had sold the Active Rain way back and it got sold a number of times to Trulia and Zillow.  One of the owners bought it back and is working on bringing back the status to our industry.   Once accomplished we will be the Inman of the industry!

Tuesdays 2pm est we zoom together.  Please block your calendar and zoom in to meet the movers and shakers and learn from each other. 

dont worry when you open the link it says something about April...just wait for the host to let you in, her name is Debe Maxwell, CRS in Charlotte NC.

I would be happy to help with your referral.  Where is the referral, what is it? single family home, condo?  State, city?  Lots of opportunity here in the Rain and other networking groups like Bannana Tudes on Facebook or Lab Coat Agents also on FB😎

Best to post and ask here ... give city, state, and area if applicable. 

When you get connected to people here you will learn, over time, who works in what state and cities.

Hi Rodney!

The referral section does not work but, we are happy to help with a referral. What area are you sending someone to?

What city and what state?  As others have answered, this Q&A Board is often your best source for referrals.

You'll have better luck putting out the referral request here. And as you spend more time on AR and get to know people you'll build your own referral network and get to know people who know people who can help.

Do you need help with a referral? Where?

Rodney my take is we develop relationships on this platform every person I sent a referral to I got to know here on the platform and never used the broken way but strictly by getting to know people. I can safely say I have a favorite person in every state and just about every county in the US thanks to Active Rain interaction

Great answers everyone. Thank you. A member of my team was asking for a referral agent in Michigan. He found one but it got me thinking so I thought I'd ask my AR family so I know when the time comes for me to find a referral. 

I look forward to workign with many of you in the future.

Give me the City & State and I'll have a referral for you soon after 😁

I personally know agents in all 50 states and most major cities, try me.

I stopped using the referral section when it wouldn't let me respond to someone after multiple tries. I would find an active agent and reach out to them directly. So much easier.

Lyn Sims has you covered on this one. Posting a question here can be the quickest since the referral agent has been most likely vetted.

The referral section has not worked in quite a while.  Go to the LeaderBoard and see if an agent is active there, then use Google.   I use CRS frequently.
