ActiveRain Can Make The Phone To Ring

 

 

It  can also bring in texts and emails and it does it with speed. Today after my radio show I was looking for a Realtor® to refer a listing... around $400,000.

If I am going to send a referral, I want to know something about the person. I want to interview that brokerage and that agent.

 

My go to place, of course, is ActiveRain.  

Checking  profiles of members in the area needed, only one agent  had posted in the past 2 years and only listings. 

 

 

If they are an 'active' ActiveRain member the referral process is so simple.

 

So I went and signed up using the Referral Network.

Within minutes my phone  began ringing!

 AND...it has not  stopped!

The texts are coming in and the emails need to be answered.

What I found... there are plenty of agents who use ActiveRain, but  only to receive referrals.

There is a good chance I will  take this listing myself however it would be nice to have a couple of agents to recommend, in case I choose not to work with this seller.

 

 

Using the referral system is quite easy.

 

Go down to the bottom of the page and click on Referral Network.

From there, just fill out your information.

That's how to get the phone ringing on ActiveRain.

Thanks for the tip!  I have looked at it once or twice, but sounds as if it deserves another look.

Susan Haughton Be prepared to take the calls, emaiils and texts.  I was disappointed that there were no active AR members to give the referral.

I use the ActiveRain network for referrals especially as the posts of an agent alow us to better now their ability and personality.

Hi Margaret!  I have used this once or twice but, typically go through and read others' posts and see who would be a good fit. It makes sense to just talk to several when using the referral network though.  

Have a wonderful week!

Margaret - I am surprised that the AR referral system is not used more often.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - indeed the referral system on ActiveRain is very easy to use - and yes, I have been fortunate to have received referrals here.

ActiveRain is my go to for referrals.  I usually have a face and name in my mind as soon as I hear a location mentioned.

Chris Ann Cleland I also do that but there was no active members in this one area.
