ActiveRain make the greatest friends ever!

Real Estate Agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate

ActiveRain make the greatest friends ever!

Through out the years on ActiveRain, I have made some wonderful friends, colleagues and confidants here on this wonderful support community.

Some of the rainers we never met in person, some we have only talked to on the phone, and there are ones that we have met in person, put the face to those blog posts and voices!
Recently we took a great trip to Denver Colorado for a wedding, and the first person I thought about to meet was one of my favorite on ActiveRain. Ms. Joan CoxJoan and I have been talking on the phone for a while, chit chat about Real Estate business, ranting about our daily activities, and just connecting about many other things.
So when this trip was planned, we were both very excited and happy that we are finally going to meet in person!
Joan took us around town, showed us best of Denver Colorado, from Mt Evans to local eateries (You can read more about it here:  ).
We have no doubt this is why Joan is so successful in helping her Denver Colorado buyers and sellers, her fun personality not only shows in her blog posts but in person she is warm, funny, witty and great local expert of Denver Colorado. 
We enjoy meeting Joan in person and we are so happy that ActiveRain made us a great friend in Denver Colorado.

Eileen - That is so great.  It's amazing the network and the true friends we develop here.  It's almost like we have a friend in each city.  I'm so glad you guys were able to meet face to face and it sounds like it was a lot of fun.

Debbie, for sure we developed some great network on AR, Joan and I were joking about it, it is like without the dating! haha.

Hi Jeffrey, I really like Denver, it was cosmopolitan and outdoorsy at the same time. Not to mention the weather was fantastic when were there, all in 70s-80s mild and Sunny.

Meeting a Rainer in person after chatting with them online and on the phone really is a special event.  Like finding a long lost friend.

Kerrie, Joan is one of my fav! That big hug was long due!

Hey Gordon, we were thinking of dropping by Colorado Spring but did not have enough time between all the wedding stuff and Red Rock/Mt Evans. NEXT TIME we will be sure to drop by Colorado Spring.

Chris Ann, isn't it great? We felt like we have been friends forever even though it was first time meeting in person.

Eileen, meeting face to face is just formaility, you REALLY know each other when blogging, commenting and especially those phone calls!    We can let our hair down and talk about what friends talk about.   Was truly a fun time meeting you both, and hope to get back there later this year!    If it weren't for the RAIN, this would have never happened.   Kerrie --- I have goose bumps too!
