MeetUp Successes!!!

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain, Community Manager

I am beyond elated, joyful, moved, and grateful for all of you that attended a MeetUp in your area.  The best part of the old RainCamps was getting to meet you face to face and embed that feeling.  When I get a call or email from one of you that I have personally met, it brings me back.  And that my friends is why the MeetUps are so very, very important.  Whether 4 or 40 people showed up I knew it would be a success!

Many of you thought more members would have come out; and you still expressed having had a fabulous time!  Many of you couldn't believe how many members came out!  This makes me and the staff at AR so incredibly happy to know we have a Community built upon more than just business.  You humanized your on-line AR presence; personal relationships will take you to new levels professionally.

I am just over the moon about the results and I thank you all from the bottom of my toes to the tip of my head.  Thank you to the hosts of these fabulous MeetUps for taking the time and effort out of your busy schedules to find a venue and date that worked.  Thank you to all the attendees that took time out of your day to travel to the venues and hang out. 

What about the Visa gift cards, you ask?  Drum roll please......

The winner of the $200 Visa gift card is Mel Peterson from Grants Pass, Oregon.

Winner of the $100 Visa gift card is Kwee Huset from Venice, Florida.

And the winner of the $50 Visa gift card is David Popoff from Darien, Connecticut.

Again, thank you to all who participated as you've made it apparent that MeetUps are definitely needed and wanted in this fabulous one of a kind amazingly perfect Community!!!!

Looks like wherever you go you have nice people food, fun and drink - at least drink in Las Vegas.  I saw the martini glass.

Our Baltimore meetup was wonderful, as always. I love when we all come together. Ellie(#21) here is a picture of you and Carolyn at our meetup. Thanks for showing up in liquid sunshine and traffic.

Kerrie, The video is fantastic. Like Debe, I watched it a couple of times. Now if only I could name everyone...

Is it possible to have AR members get together and be unsuccessful? I think NOT!

Had a wonderful time at our meeting in Fremont, CA. A good group of people who just met... to meet in person those we so admire here on Cyber-AR. We will do it again, I am sure.

HI Kerrie, I agree with you totally about making connections like we did at the events, but I also like the new virtual raincamp even more, less time, travel, expenses, the new virtual raincamps, I think that the AR MeetUps will grow as well.   Looking forward to the next one and count me in to host again for Tarrant County.

The meetups were a great idea and it was fun to host one as well as to see what everyone did. We were having such a good time at dinner talking that we never even took any photos - a first for me.

We enjoyed watching the slide show, reading your post and reading the comments.  We're a bit late on Maui  - our realtor's meet-up is not happening  until Oct. 5th, I hought I should share the invite here in case some Maui Realtors are reading this post. - Thanks for the inspiration to do a realtors tweet-up :)
