Our Happy Halloween AR Fall Meetup was a Great Success!

 

We had a great turnout for our Fall ActiveRain meetup today, held at the Lighthouse Oyster Bar and Grill at the marina/harbor in Oceanside from 11:30 – 1:30, with Rainers from San Diego and Orange Counties, including Melissa Zavala , Jill Murty, Realtor - Orange County, CA , John Meussner , Matt Brady , Bill Roberts , Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, CRS  and co-host John DL Arendsen .

 

Our San Diego AR Meetup Site

 

As always the topics of discussion covered a wide range of personal and business stuff, including blogging, lender and transaction issues, vacations, tiny houses, drama in the real estate industry and online, Uber vs. Lyfft, and more. It’s always interesting to hear different people’s experiences and perspectives, and often good learning!

We even touched on trick or treating tonight, and who was likely getting the big crowds or would have the most candy left over to eat. And there were masks and treat bags, too.

 

Check out the wrap-up from Thomas and his photo with some Rainers with MASKS! Someone has the pic where we all have masks on I think! Anyone??

 

Thanks to everyone who took the time away from business to attend! Now we can look forward to the next one!!

Great follow up Jeff Dowler I'll have to catch up later. On my way out of town for a couple of days. It was so nice for Anna Banana Kruchten to pull off that stunning phantom appearance. We all enjoyed her presence so much albeit felt but not seen. LOL!

Sharon Tara  - it was lots of fun, as these things always are. There never is enough time to talk with everyone in depth, and we always seem to have multiple conversationns going on. Still hoping to see the photo where everyone had a mask on, unless it didn't turn out

My pleasure John Meussner  Alwyas nice to see you and appreciate you making the trip. Thanks for giving Jill the ride, too!

Hi Lisa Von Domek 

Indeed, it would be fun. But I don't think any of this group is making the trip. I am off tomorrow at 8 AM! Hoping flights are all on time!
