Branson Meetup at Grand Country

Branson Meetup at Grand Country with James Dray and Linda Guess

 

 

 There were only two of us at the Branson Meetup, but that didn't slow us down any.  James

James Dray Dray does not look like his photo.  He is much better looking.  I am just saying.  I told him he needs to up-date his photo. 

It was non-stop talking from the minute we sat down until we both had to leave.  He is a very interesting person.  He currently manages an office of 22 agents.  I think that keeps him busy. 

James Bray was with the police department for 30 years and in 2005 decided to start his real estate career.  I think he loves real estate and I think looking back that he would have been in real estate a lot sooner if he had known how much he enjoys the real estate business.  That is my opinion.  He did not actually say that.

He shared some real estate techniques with me.  All the help I can get is very much appreciated.  I shared with him some vitamin information that many people do not know and can save a lot of discomfort.   No I don't sell vitamins.  I just like to talk about them when I heard that a relative had a problem that the vitamin will help.

We think it would be good to have Meetups every six months.  It was a lot of fun.  Maybe we would have a better turnout if Branson was in season and family would be able to enjoy all of the activities while we spend a couple hours at lunch.

Good luck and success.

Hi Linda -- as others have commented, two can be just the right number.  It sounds like you and James Dray had a very good MeetUp.   Is Bentonville AR and Branson that close?  Forgive my lack of your area geography knowledge.

Two is better than one or none. So glad you got to experience a meet-up and hopefully the next one will be well attended. 

Thanks for being such a great member of ActiveRain too Linda. You really have the spirit!

James Dray by the way.  Our photographer didn't take any pictures.  When I checked the camera, there were no photos of our Meetup.  Bob Crane said the next Meetup will be in April.

Linda and James, you do not need to have a lot of people to have an outstanding meetup.  Larry and I are the only active members that are active in ActiveRain in our market, a few of our agents make feeble attempts at participating, but like I said, it's me and Larry! Still, we have great meetups!

That's all you need for a MeetUp. Never a shortage of conversation with AR members. Any photos to share?

We (there 4 couples) spent a week in Branson seeing 2 shows a day. We had a fabulous time. Laughed the entire week.

It is not about the size Linda it is about the connection. I am glad that the two of you made it worthwhile and got to know each other better.
