NAR Orlando 2008 - what not to miss

Real Estate Agent with Majestic Properties 3061802

To think that tomorrow I get to see my dear friends who live in my computer (I love that Teresa came up with that).  I've been to some Active Rain gatherings and also to Inman in July and it's beyond overwhelming.  So if you have a chance to hop over to Orlando this weekend, do it!  (it will be well worth it).

NAR Orlando 2008

NAR tools

Here are some things you cannot miss:

  • To keep in touch while at NAR Orlando, our own Jeff "tool boy" Turner or as I call him, "aparatoso" or @respres - came up with a Twitter group NAR2008 - so make sure you go follow, turn notifications on and you'll get updates on your mobile phone.
  • The Active Rain Gathering has been announced, and although we know it's Saturday at 8:00 PM, we still don't know where (OK guys.....enough suspense already).  One thing you should know is that Brad has authorized me to slap him because he kept mispronouncing my name (don't worry Brad....I may kick you, but never slap you) ;)

MUST SEE sessions

Finally - 3 sessions you HAVE to attend because it's people we love (although I'm in 2 of those, I'm not conceited enough to say go because I'll be in them).

1.  Friday, November 7th at 12:30 PM - Driving Real Business with Blogs

2.  Saturday, November 8th at 11:00 AM - Web 2.0 Panel hosted by Diamond Dwellings

3.  Sunday, November 9th at 11:00 AM - Using Social Media to engage clients

If I missed anything, please feel free to leave it on the comments and I will come back and update the post - let us know if you will be there as well - that way we can plan to meet while in Orlando.

Hope to see many of you there!

I am going to try my best to make it at some point. I have a company function that I MUST attend, at least at the beginning. But I would rather go dancing in the rain. Hopefully I will see you later that night rather than sooner.

I love "people who live in your computer". I'll have to thank Teresa (at the next CyberPro break) for coming up with it. Sorry I'm still at CP tomorrow but will catch you Saturday night.

Bummed I can't make it! It is going to be a blast. I will have to live webcariously! (I thought I just made up that word, but of course I found someone that used it before me. Just when you think you are original :) Have fun!
