ActiveRain MeetUp

Westchester ActiveRain MeetUp 2013


A MeetUp Time of ActiveRain members is always fun! My very first time meeting any AR members was one year ago in Westchester with Debbie Gartner. Since then I've been meeting and greeting different AR members in other locations too. NYC, Newburgh,Connecticut and now back to Westchester. I always enjoy seeing people in person and actually having some dialogue in Real LIFE! It is cool to finally put a voice to the avatar that I see daily. 

ActiveRain MeetUp

As always the group that I find when meeting people from ActiveRain shares the bond on and offline. Those that have not experienced this are skeptical and think that blogging and networking have little or no value. Every time I meet up with my blogging buddies reaffirms why I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful professional group.We went to Uno's again and everyone seemed to enjoy. New faces this time and now I need to go back and find all of them so that I can subscribe to their blogs too. Mortgage people, inspectors, Decorators, Realtors, and of course our Flooring Girl made up a good mix for this  event. 

MeetUp ActiveRainNow back to work today .. in the actual rain, showing apartments. I need sunshine and I hear that tomorrow we may see a little springtime show up. I am hoping as I will be out showing properties all weekend. 


Thanks to everyone that came yesterday. It was my pleasure to see you. Til next time!

It was so great seeing you Janis, and everybody else. That is one terrible picture of me!  I have to try to do a blog soon...trying to catch up my estimates first, but hopefully tonight.

Hi Janis,

There is definitely something special about sharing the AR bond online and offline ... and Meetups are a great way to do just that!  Personally, I wish you and I lived closer to one another, because I would LOVE to get together and hang out with you!  Some day, I hope ....

Also, I know what you mean about non-AR folks being skeptical, as I have the same experience too.  Oh well ... we know what AR means to us and that's what really matters, right? :)

Janis - I so wish I could have made this Meet Up and saw some of my wonderful AR friends! So glad you all had a great time and you're so right about only people who experience it, get it.

So beautifully written and expressed, Janis, as always.  I really enjoy your newsletter and your great blogs.  So glad that you made it to the meetup and wish I could have been there....but, I was in spirit at least.  Forrest and I had another commitment and an opportunity to sponsor that I couldn't pass on...right down the street from your dinner!

I truly enjoy meeting all the ActiveRain people and going to the meetups. I am always amazed at how when we all get together it seems that we are just friends going out to dinner and never at a loss for words. It is great how we can just pick up from the last post. Seems some of us know more about each other than we do our friends and neighbors IRL. =)

I only wish that RainCamp was still happening so that more of us would/could get together at once. I hear the classes and the interaction was amazing.
