What the heck is an RE BeerCamp?

By
Education & Training with Tech and Social Media Consultant

You may have heard a something about REBarCamp and wondered what it was, was it held in a bar or was it just for Steelworkers.

Here’s a quick PSA.

The RE in REBarCamp stands for Real Estate.  The event is usually free to attend but always very popular and you must RSVP.  It’s an Un-Conference with no preset agenda.  At the start, the attendees propose what they would like to learn about.  Once a schedule is set, different areas hold specific discussions.  These discussions led by an industry leader who is there to freely disseminate real information.  No hype, no sales pitches.  Each session is highly interactive (you are not just listening to a speaker).

After a full day of learning there is usually a networking event afterwards.  These tend to be in a bar or cocktail lounge close by, hence the term “BeerCamp”.

I highly encourage you to attend a REBarCamp in your area but more than that, may I suggest you also bring someone along who has never heard of a REBarCamp?

I’ll be at REBarCamp/San Francisco and REBarCamp/Lynchburg

Jeff - Those who know , know.  We can only hope they listen to us when we say GO!

John - it was a surprise to me (Alltop)  A great surprise!

Lane - Really hope to catch up with you in Lynchburg. (but I understand)

T - Absolutely!  I have watched some of the streaming video coming from some of these events and thought "This isn't a REBarCamp..." 

Matt - Fixed it!  : )

If you are wondering if there's a REBarCamp in your area... check out the website.  If there isn't - Start One!  Just ask me how.

I attended my first RE Barcamp in Phili.  It was an amazing turn for me!  It represents the best and brightest of our industry and a sharing you don't often see in other venues.  Thanks for reminding me I should shout it out more.

 MIKE....rebarcampREBar camp was one of the greatest learning experiences you can go to..I think ..and this is only my personal opinion ..it should take the place of  the present continuing education in place for Real Estate agents..LOVED IT!

Mike - Thanks for adding it in there.  I think it's a great example of what you can do with video (and of course the custom Mueller jersey caught my eye as well).

I actually did two versions of this.  One with jusy a toast at the end and then this one.  Figured this one was more memorable and added a little humor.

Matt - My pleasure! The "Wild" Jersey?  That was all for you!  ; )
