ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meeting 03/21/23

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

This is my weekly reminder that this Tuesday, March 21st. is our next regularly scheduled ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meeting at 2:00 p.m. EST.  If you have not attended one of these meetings before, then you need to make this a try to attend meeting this week.

These ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meetings are hosted by our long time member, the lovely Debe Maxwell, CRS, and are also attend by many of the ActiveRain Ambassadors, as well as other movers and shakers of our industry.

This Tuesday's ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meeting will be a continuation of last week's ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meeting on the "Impact of AI On Real Estate".  However, this week instead of having a speaker, we will have a group discussion.  Our moderator for this Tuesday's ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meeting will be Debe Maxwell, who always does a great job in guiding and moderating our discussions.

As I mentioned in my blog last week, at first I was at a loss as to what impact Artificial Intelligence (AI) has or will have on Real Estate.  But I read our speakers blog "What Effect Does AI  Have on Real Estate?", and then the light bulb came on, and it became obvious.  AI is already playing a huge role in Real Estate.  With all the AI gadgets available today it is hard to imagine a house that does not have some kind of AI in it.  The use of AI ranges from very sophisticated equipment to very simple equipment like a Ring Door Bell.

So this Tuesday will be an opportunity for everyone on the ZOOM Meeting to share their experience with AI both in their own home, as well as in homes they have toured or listed.  So come prepared this Tuesday to share your experiences.  Even if you feel you have not have an experience to share, it will still be an excellent opportunity to hear what others have experienced, and ask questions.

Our  ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meeting are always an excellent opportunity to meet other ActiveRain members, hear about what they are doing, and get ideas for your own business.  These meetings are also an excellent opportunity to just sit back, and get to meet everyone on the call.  I hope everyone reading this post makes every effort to attend this week's ActiveRain Weekly ZOOM Meeting, Tuesday, March 21st. at 2:00 p.m. EST., and participate in our discussion.

Oh how I wish I would be able to attend but I will be out and about showing properties during the zoom call and this subject has my attention.  Do you save the zoom call for later viewing?  Just curious. George Souto

Diana the ZOOM Meetings are not recorded, and there are no plans to record them.  One of the major purposes for these meetings is to promote interaction between members, in order to achieve that we need to promote attendance.  Recording the meetings would work against that objective.

George Souto I understand.  Unfortunately for me, it seems every time I am wanting to be on a zoom call I get an appointment that interferes.  But, it is what it is, and I can't complain because I am staying busy.  But it makes sense. Thank you for responding to my comment.
