On November 9th, Suzanne and I hosted an Active Rain Meetup in Phoenix, Arizona - second time hosting for us!

 

Joining us (in alphabetical order by last name) were:

 

Richard Bazinet /MBA, CRS, ABR 

Jesse Clifton

Brian England  

Jan Green 

Mike Jones 

 

The event took place at:

 

     

 

  

 

 

Greekfest Restaurant

1940 E. Camelback Rd.
Phoenix, AZ 85016

(Northwest Corner of 20th Street and Camelback)

 

Great Menu - Reasonable Prices!

 

Suzanne and I found this gem of a restaurant shortly after we moved to the Valley in 1996, and have been fiercely loyal customers ever since! Owned by Tony & Sue Makridis, this is a family owned authentic Greek restaurant with top class authentic Greek Cuisine!

 

Left to Right - Brian England, Mike Jones, Jesse Clifton, Tony Marriott, Suzanne Marriott, Jan Green, Richard Bazinet                                   

 

Apart from the great food served by Greekfest, far and away the best part of being there was meeting Jesse Clifton - an Active Rain transplant to Tucson from Alaska, and the animated discussions with the group about real estate topics du jour!

 

We talked about aerial photography and videography and the need to use properly authorized / licensed pilots (FAA regulations) and the wisdom of carrying liability insurance for every drone shoot.  

 

Sunlit Drones provided a "door prize" to each attendee - a free drone shoot!

 

We also discussed the notification we all received earlier in the week from the Arizona Association  of REALTORS about the new policy statement issued by the Arizona Department of Real Estate which is neatly summed up as follows:

 

"Any Inside Sales Agents prospecting for real estate business MUST be licensed - and if they are not - the Arizona Department of Real Estate will go after the agent employing them!"

 

The most popular menu selection this time was the Gyros Taverna - one of my favorites - extra onions please! 

 

We really enjoyed hosting our second Phoenix Lunchtime Active Rain Meetup at Greekfest and plan to host them quarterly - stay tuned!
