Are You Coming To NAR This Weekend?

Education & Training with Retired Executive Director of Education at eXp

If you're coming to NAR in San Diego, I hope you'll stop by and see us. Traditionally in the past, ActiveRain hasn't had a booth on display where we've shared our goods and promoted the Network.  This year will be no different, except we will have our own small section of Real Estate at the convention.  Sound confusing? 

Good, then you'll read on.....


Our friends over at MarketLeader have graciously offered to share their "Large Acreage" lounge with us, and I get to come be the AR mascot for two whole days.  Jon and Bob are finally letting me out! lol~  I'll have my laptop with me, so If you don't come by and see me, and I see you, it's likely that I'll be offended and remove points from your ActiveRain account. (just  Seriously, stop by and see us.  It will be an informal, comfortable lounge type setting, where you can relax, rest your weary feet, and just chill with us. 

We'll be giving away some really cool stuff, answering some questions if you have to ask them, but mostly we'll be there to support NAR and all the wonderful members that we're hoping to see this weekend.  We are also going to be doing a joint drawing: Two RainCamp tickets and a $100 American Express card giveaway for some lucky winner to enjoy dinner during a RainCamp event of their choice during the 2010 tour.  We'll be there all day Saturday and Sunday.  The drawing will occur on Sunday at the end of the show.

MarketLeader will be giving away a 10 day cruise, so you might want to stop by and see what that's all about too?  I'm Looking forward to getting out of the office for a couple days, learning a few new things, mingling with some old and new friends, and most of all, creating some great memories in Sunny Southern California. (it will be sunny right?) 

So just drop by, say hi, leave us your card, chat for a bit, and we'll do the rest!  If you want access to the entire NAR event on your cell phone, you can download the "NAR 2009" app on to your cell phone here  How cool is that?

Until then, travel safe, and "Be All You Can Be" you can and DO make a difference in the world!  :-)

Our Lounge Booth is #2425 on the main aisle
