IF you are in AR for the POINTS...You Miss the Point..MEETUP !

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

   IF you are in Active Rain for the grand race for Points...we think you are missing the very best part of this community. We have had the pleasure of meeting many AR members, past and present throughout the country from California to Massachusetts.....Florida to Illinois....and states here and there in between.  There is nothing like when your "virtual colleagues" take on real bodies....and the personalities you loved, the reasons you were attracted...become warm hugs and endless Mundtsconversations. 

     We have spoken with and commented and met Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi  and his lovely wife Marilyn before...and the time between visits had been just tooo long.  Lunch it was today in Pleasant Prairie which is just the Wisconsin side of the Illinois/Wisconsin border.  We have all met before and agreed the time between visits had been much too long.

mundt2 For all of you who think that we live in the frozen tundra...here's PROOF...she the sun shining over David's shoulder ? He says it's his sunny personality...But.....

    Soooo...If you are a hop and a skip from an AR member...are going to a conference or making a trip...OR plan a trip as we have that includes AR members...we promise if it is anything like the experiences we have had...you will enjoy the memories for a lifetime.

     MEET UP...it doesn't have to be "official". Bob Stewart told me himself....that some of the BEST times are the ones that you choose as members and enjoy each other's company.  We now have reorganized the world of real estate and lending in at least part of the Midwest and are on to bigger and better things !

      All the Best AR Members...Enjoy It !

       This has been a Mini Meetup Post brought to you by Sally K. & David L. Hanson who enjoy meeting up...and all things real estate in southeastern Wisconsin.

Hello Sally and David - the quick unplanned  ActiveRain meet-ups I have attended have been fun and informative.  Ditto the organized ones too.

Morning Sally.

I've only been to one official meet-up.  I have been to several unofficial ones.   Regardless it is always a great time to meet-up with those who you interact with on a daily basis here in the Rain

Around here we used to have meet ups, but things have fallen off dramatically.

But I could not care less about the points.  Meeting is a great time, but not for the points.

Looks like it was a fun meetup!  I enjoy meeting up with those that I interact with in the Rain, when I am near them or they are near me.

Glad to see that you had a great little meet-up.  As for the sun shining over David's shoulder, I did notice that those windows were tightly closed and everyone was dressed warmly.

How wonderful, looks like a fun mini-meet up. And, agree with you completely. If I was in AR to accumulate points, I'd be long gone. It's the people who keep me coming back day after day after day.

It's all about the people! We had a small meet-up (planned but, in under a week!) here a couple of weeks ago and not one person asked for points for posting about the meet-up. I love that - it truly IS all about the relationships!

Sally K. & David L. Hanson what a great shout out for your meet up and letting all know that it is about the contacts, connections and good people that make up this venue.  I never think of the points but seeing those here & connecting is what it is all about!
