Kerrie's Blog: MeetUp Locations Announced!

MeetUp Locations Announced!

Ladies, have you been waiting for a special occasion to bust out those new shoes?  Gentlemen, still dying to show off your new ascot?  Well the time has come!

In honor of our inaugural virtual RainCamp on September 8th, we are honored to have AR members hosting MeetUps around the Country and Canada too!

The very best feeling is meeting you lovely beings face to face.  We all know each other virtually but if you get the chance to meet a member in the flesh you must jump on it.  The relationship becomes even more real and deepens the bond with one another.  When you get a room full of AR members, magic happens!  Ideas flow, networking opportunities spurt and you always leave with a new idea.  Now if that doesn't grab you, maybe 1,500 points will.  September MeetUp attendees will receive points as well as a chance to win some cash.  A raffle of Visa cards will be given out to 3 lucky attendees in the amounts of $200, $100 and $50.

Please feel free to contact the host should you have any additional questions. We're getting together for a casual get-together to network, relax and build relationships.  A very big thank you to all the hosts who have taken time out of their days to plan a MeetUp.

Check out the MeetUp line-up to find one in your neighborhood.  If you don't see one and are interested in hosting, please contact me.

Hi Kerrie, I will get you a location here within the next week, been a little under the weather lately.

Posted by Hrisco & Associates, -"Est. 2000 ~ Experience Matters" (Hrisco & Associates | eXp Realty, LLC.) about 7 years ago

Kerrie - Looks like there will be a lot of meetups taking place!  This is such a great idea. Thanks!

Posted by Kathleen Daniels, San Jose Homes for Sale-Probate & Trust Specialist (KD Realty - 408.972.1822) about 7 years ago

I'm going to 2.

NOTE: YOU ARE MISSING DAGNY'S FOR CT

Posted by Debbie Gartner, The Flooring Girl & Blog Stylist -Dynamo Marketers (The Flooring Girl) about 7 years ago

Kerrie,

                 I cannot believe we do not have one for the Houston Area other than the Woodlands. Please let me know if something changes. I will be on the look out for your posts.

 

Posted by Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert about 7 years ago
John - Feel better buddy!

Debbie - My bad, I've just updated the list.  Thanks!

Be sure to check back from time to time as the list will be updated with new MeetUps.  And remember, if you don't see one in your area and are willing to host, please let me know.

Posted by Kerrie La Guardia, Let it Rain! (ActiveRain, Community Manager) about 7 years ago

I believe I'll be making TWO!!! Dallas AND Austin (will be there for state convention)!! Do I get double points??? :)

Posted by Kim Dean, d + b real estate, McKinney, TX REALTOR Broker/Own (www.RealFamilyRealEstate.com) about 7 years ago

Three meetups in Virginia the same day. Hopefully I will make one of these Meetups. 1,500 points and a chance to win a gift card. Active Rain employs nothing but brilliant people because you sure know how to sucker people to do things:-).

Kerrie:

I think Bryan Robertson beat you to it.  He is an ambassador in the Bay Area and took it upon himself to set up a meet and greet.  He is a real go-getter and we are lucky that he is in our area.

Posted by Evelyn Kennedy, Alameda, Real Estate, Alameda, CA (Alain Pinel Realtors) about 7 years ago

Was pleasantly surprised to see one listed, nearby, in CT.  Dagny, thanks for hosting.

Posted by Marilyn Katz, ABR, e-PRO - WestportCTProperties.com (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) about 7 years ago

I'm so excited!! We're the only meetup not on the designated week, but I wanted to accommodate more people as the more the merrier when coming to Austin for the Realtor's convention!!

Posted by Brian Madigan, LL.B., Broker (RE/MAX West Realty Inc., Brokerage (Toronto)) about 7 years ago

these meetups should be fun.  wish there was something a little closer... I may have to enjoy vicariously.

Posted by Joan Whitebook, Consumer Focused Real Estate Services (BHG The Masiello Group) about 7 years ago

Sounds like a very cool idea, but I have standing networking commitments on Thursday and that is the night you selected in West Palm so sorry, but that's the closest to me and too far to make it and back to my 7 PM commitment.

Posted by Anonymous about 7 years ago

Too bad we couldn't have them on screen and be able to connect virtually.

Posted by Barb Van Stensel about 7 years ago

This looks like a good gathering, we will check out the Manhattan New York location, maybe win a raffle or two!

That is going to be a difficult week, but I am looking forward to meeting all the Westchester A/R people in White Plains!

Posted by Vickie Nagy, Vickie Jean the Palm Springs Condo Queen (Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate) about 7 years ago

Kerrie, I hope this is the start of a great tradition. 

     Sure, there are some "holes" in the USA and various states, but in time, ActiveRainers will step up to the plate and host a MeetUp in their locale.

    Good Job!

Posted by Fred Griffin, Licensed Florida Real Estate Broker (Fred Griffin Real Estate) about 7 years ago

Wow!  We've got a lot of great meet-ups.  I'm glad I was able to coordinate the one in Fremont.  I'm looking forward to having folks show up.  Evelyn - Thanks for the props!

Hi Lady! I was looking at the Meet-up calendar, and didn't see anything for the Eastern end of the Canadian empire. Don't they know that I do travel that far? or they do know and want to keep it a secret?

There are still MeetUps trickling in.  Once solidified they are added to the list above.  Be sure to come back and check or if you don't see one in your area....host one!  :)
