A Spontaneous ActiveRain Gathering in Baxter, Minnesota Yesterday

A Spontaneous ActiveRain Gathering in Baxter, Minnesota Yesterday


Yesterday morning, I was in Baxter, Minnesota at the Greater Lakes Association of Realtors (GLAR), representing the Minnesota CRS Chapter (Council of Residential Specialists) as its 2015 President.  The event was part of our "Breakfast of Champions"  series, a panel discussion about Real Estate Trends and Issues Facing Today’s REALTORS®.


We had a fabulous group of attendees yesterday.  And among those in attendance was well-known Minnesota blogger and home staging professional Kathleen Lordbock. Kathleen approached me after the event ended and I recognized her right away!


Okay, so it turned out to be an impromptu gathering (and a very small one at that), but it was awesome nonetheless to meet Kathleen at one of our Minnesota CRS Chapter events.

I've done that from time to time. I've been in a CE class and met someone from ActiveRain which is always cool.

Roy Kelley - Thank you!

It's probably a bit confusing, as I have two profiles and two blogs.  One is my Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota blog (Wayzata Lakes Realty) and the other is my Madeline Island Real Estate Blog (Apostle Islands area of Lake Superior), in LaPointe, Wisconsin.
