Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain, Community Manager

They're here, they're here!  The wonderful hosts have volunteered and organized a MeetUp in their area. All for the love of Rainers!  

The MeetUp locations and hosts are listed below.  If you have questions regarding a specific MeetUp, please contact the host directly.  If you don't see one in your area, there is still time to host!  Just send me the date/time/venue/address and I'll update this list as they roll in.

Get out there and say hello to other Rainers while relaxing over lunch, breakfast, happy hour or a cocktail!  You'll receive 1,000 bonus AR points just for attending and we'll have a raffle of goodies soon after the MeetUps commence.  Come one, come all!

Kerrie, I understand that there is now a meet up in Franklin TN too. I was going to try to go to Debbies's in Clarksville since she always makes the trip down here. Give her a little support. Do we get points for all that we go to?

Kerrie, I have tried to contact the person doing the Altamonte Springs meetup.  There is no blog about it and she has not responded.  I have 4 people who want to attend.  I didn't do a meetup in Altamonte Springs, FL because someone else signed up.  If I don't hear from her, we will go to the location and see if we can locate the hostess.  It's a big hotel!  Wish us luck.

Hi Kerrie,

I attended my first AR meet up in Altamonte Springs FL last month ! Was great , met a new lender and a few great RE agents! Saw we were supposed to get 1000 points for attending and was just curious about that.
