Central Florida Real Estate Happenings..... Guess who these people are and YOU might get POINTS!!!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Knights Investing

Universal Studios in sunny Orlando Florida!!


THESE people got their pics taken with my stinky
camera on my Palm Treo700w.... at the NAR
ActiveRain Gathering at the Hard Rock Cafe in
Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida!!

Now, mind you, this camera at one time WAS a
nice camera... BUT I bought it used....

(I FORGOT to bring my NICE 2 megapixel camera with me....pphhtttt!!!  IT HAD A FLASH WITH IT, the Palm 700w  DOESN'T .... AARRGGGggggg!!!)




guess who this is...he met me first and gave me a T-Shirt!!


SO...if YOU can tell ME who all of these people
are in my pictures....

and I MIGHT be able to wiggle some BONUS POINTS
out of the ActiveRain constituency....

Here they are.... may the FIRST ONE to get ALL the
names to the pictures WIN!!!




My goodness...can you figure out who THIS IS??


Some of these people I have been DYING to meet,
just because of their professionalism and upbeat
way of communicating!

Some of them I have talked to on the phone and
we have had some really nice conversations!





Just TRY to figure out SOME of these pictures and smiling faces!!


Some of these people I highly respect and look
up to, just because I see in THEM character that
is born from adversity and a positive, overcoming

Some of them I have JUST recently met and I did
NOT know them in the almost TWO YEARS I was in ActiveRain, even though I had heard of them and knew they were MOVERS and SHAKERS within the network.




Figure out EVERY ONE of these faces...and you might just get a PRIZE!!



When you see some of these pictures, you will
know faces right off the bat, BUT SOME of them
you will have to SEARCH for.... hehehehe....

I HOPE THIS is a nice break in your day as you
SEARCH OUT who EVERY SINGLE ONE of these people




I was surpized at how many of these people came to the gathering...it was AWESOME!!



How many of these faces ARE there??? Well, You
will find out as you scroll on DOWN to the end of
this post....hehehehe.... SOME of these people I met
in the line to the bartender.... OMGoodness...ALEX, YOU were at the bar??!!??

YES....getting a PEPSI..... (I do not drink alcohol out of choice...NOT conviction or because of my religious views...)



Some of these people IMPRESSED me with the conversations we had!!


Well, SOME of these faces MIGHT be HARD to

Some of the people I met wanted to MEET ME...OMGoodness!! I was FLOORED by how NICE
these people were.

ActiveRain has GREAT people in it.... I guess
that is why I have stayed around so long....




A LOT of these people I have subscribed to...so I can feel the PULSE of real estate ....



Some of the people here LOOK ALMOST JUST LIKE THE PICTURES they have on their profiles...... WOW...talk about BEING REAL!!!

I LOVE it when I do NOT have to wade through a BUNCH of PLASTIC to see a persons character or their heart.




Some members of ActiveRain I met quite a while back....


Some of the members of ActiveRain I took
pictures of I met QUITE a while back
when I FIRST became a MEMBER!!

Talk about COOL!!! The way some of the
members shook my hand and talked to me,
you would have thought we KNEW each other....

(WE DO...every time we COMMENT back
and forth on blogs we get to know each
other more and more!!)




Some agents were ...just around the block from where I live!!


My goodness, SOME members were agents I wanted to meet so I could let them know THEY lived closer to areas I want to serve than I did....so I could let them know I would send the customers I get in their neck of the woods to THEM!!

ActiveRain helped me CONFIRM the GOOD nature of certain members through this gathering.... so I can now FEEL GOOD sending my customers to them!!

Is ActiveRain AWESOME...or WHAT??!!??



Some ActiveRain members are NEAR and Dear to my heart, because of PAST dealings with them...


Some people here just touched my life in a BIG way a LONG time ago.... (I even BLOGGED about some of
them before...)

These people are near and dear to me.... and I am
NOT ashamed to admit it!!

I am SO GLAD I am in ActiveRain..... GREAT things
have happened to me since I joined up!!



Some things are just UNIVERSAL!!!



Some things are just UNIVERSAL... like being human.... and having struggles in life... and needing OTHERS to be there to answer questions you may have.

I FOR ONE am GLAD other members of ActiveRain are there to answer MY questions when I have them....





So, the next time someone asks YOU,

"Why are you in ActiveRain....?"

You can answer them, "Because they are there for me when I NEED them!"

ROTFL...this is too much fun.  I just read Russ' comment above mine.  Jason didn't go. BBBZZZZ..he's out. No points for him.  (I'm kidding). Anyway, I recognize Brad and Jonathan and possibly Jeff Turner. No points for me either.  Hey, it was fun though!  Thanks for sharing your pics with all of us.

I definitely recognized JeffX and ResPres without a second thought.  I've seen enough photos of those two to spot them with my eyes closed.

Inna.....and Jon...... I did NOT purposely take pictures of myself...I USUALLY have to be informed before I have a pic taken...... otherwise the pic turns out like the one above.....


I look like I'm drunk AND I look like I have a stain on my shirt....PLUS I LOOK fat and like I have a double chin...........iicckkyyy.....

Am I just being vain...... hmmmm..... not sure on that one.....hehehehe....    =-D

Monika and Midori... I MISSED a LOT of people I think because I left the party at around 11 PM...... I know some people did not get there till after that time.

Marc....... Yesssirrreeee... we had a GREAT time, hmmm? I am lookin forward to working with You also, and it was GREAT to finally meet you too!!!

Sharon........ Billie Tutas and I had some really important things to talk about before I started to mingle with others...... she is a great lady and I am glad I finally got to talk to her in person.... talking to Bryant Tutas was just like talking to him on the phone........ no differences there..... just a nice, warm, freindly person!!

WOW...I think this is the MOST comments I have ever had on one of my posts!!!!


BTW... NO-ONE has gotten EVERYONE in the pics named yet....so no points YET.........

KEEP at IT.....SOME of the pics ARE NAMED on other POSTS about the Orlando Gathering.... (Just a HINT)
