Margaret Rome's Blog


You Want Proof...Here's Proof


How many times have you been asked if blogging works? How many times have you seen a question asking if you get real business from ActiveRain? How many comments have you read asking for confirmation that this is not a waste of time?

I am not looking for referrals and I am not trying to convince anyone to use this blogging platform, but thought I would share what's  happening right now.


You Want Proof Margaret Rome


I sold a property to a buyer who lives out of my area and was able to recommend a wonderful Realtor® who I met ,through ActiveRain.

This agent, over the years, has become a friend and we have shared and learned so much from each other. We have been to numerous MeetUps and other gatherings and we stay in touch with phone calls.

Of course when the seller mentioned their location, I immediately thought this would be a real good match.


This seller did NOT feel the need to interview any other agents. They had a good experience with me and they loved the agent I referred! 

The listing has been signed, the  property is in 'coming soon' status and photography is scheduled. This week on my live radio show I will be talking about this new listing. Maybe the seller or agent will call in. Either way there will be more exposure on this new beautiful property. This would not have happened without  blogging connections.

Here is proof that you do get business from ActiveRain.


Happy Valentine's Day

Good morning Margaret. AR works for me. I have made and received referrals over the years and prepared to make more when the need arises. Enjoy your day

Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland ,

You don't have to convince me! Blogging does work and there are so many relationships formed over the years in AR. I know exactly who I'd refer my clients to if moving to another area just by the interaction on this platform.

Excellent results from your broad marketing techniques. It is all about the introduction from a trusted member that often creates the winning environment. Bet your show causes more than one listener to call you on this property.

Active Rain surely works!  I have received many calls and inquiries from my blogs from both sellers and buyers. Another great post!

Margaret absolutley ActiveRain works well for many reasons and referrals is just one reason.  I've been fortunate to receive many referrals over the years and give many referrals too. A couple are going on right now. What's not to love!  I don't need any proof!!

To me, it's not so much about the referrals, as it is the collective tribal knowledge that is shared in the wellspring known as ActiveRain!

Hi Margaret - yes Active Rain works. It has worked for me as well.
