Texas Association of Realtors Meet-Up- Xplod 2012 in San Antonio, Texas

UPDATE: We will be meeting at 9am CST on Sunday morning in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency San Antonio (123 Losoya St San Antonio, Texas, 78205)


"The stars at night - are big and bright
Deep in the heart of Texas.
The prairie sky - is wide and high
Deep in the heart of Texas.
The sage in bloom - is like perfume
Deep in the heart of Texas.
Reminds me of - the one I love
Deep in the heart of Texas."

I am making my annual pilgrimage to the Texas Association of Realtors Annual Conference, this year in San Antonio, Texas.  I fly into Texas late on Saturday September 8th, 2012 and will be in San Antonio through Monday afternoon September 10th, 2012.

I am speaking at TAR on Sunday afternoon and then at the accompanying Xplod conference on Monday September 10th first thing in the morning.    I am going to be speaking on recent trends in the Google search algorithm and how you as a broker-owner or agent need to think about your online strategy to drive traffic.  I will post my presentation online as well.

I would love an opportunity to meet up with 'Rainers who may be attending TAR in San Antonio.

Please leave a comment below if you are planning on attending TAR in San Antonio this year and would like to meet up for coffee or a drink.  I will follow-up with more information.

Hope to see you.... deep in the heart of Texas!

UPDATE: We will be meeting at 9am CST on Sunday morning in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency San Antonio (123 Losoya St San Antonio, Texas, 78205)

I have a dear friend who is a top sales person for an international banking products firm in Austin. She is consistently the top producer there,  but is says deep down she's quite board.

I've told her numerous times that Texas Real Estate is a career she should consider!

She is highly experienced, physically stunning and has a personality that won't quit...would She benefit from attending this conference?

Would this be a good place to begin? Thanks!

It could be a good place to start.  Also she should check out ActiveRain to learn more.  There also a ton of great folks in the "Rain in Austin if she is interested in meeting some great agents and brokers to lean about real estate.

I attended Xplode last year. For the question above, I don't think it's really for a person who isn't in real estate to learn about it. It was all about using the Ipad for your business and other technology things. It's not something "about" real estate for her to know if it would be something she would like.

And I think the TAR conference is only for members so she wouldn't be able to attend that...

It's hot here, you probably don't want a three piece suit!! They had the Flip Flop guys from AZ last year in their flip flops and shorts.

Yes, Niki, I plan to be there, since I live in San Antonio. I think Cathy Bureau will be there too, since she is on one of those committees. Text Me or Call Me. I will see if others local  AR members are planning to attend too.
