The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

ActiveRain at Real Estate Connect 2008



There's a buzz in the Blogosphere about the Inman Real Estate Connect in San Francisco this year.
Have you heard? It's Coming pretty quick. Last year, it was a total blast, and this year promises to be even better. It's going to be at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco again, on July 23-25th, 2008.

I just wanted to remind everyone how cool it was last year, and how much bigger and better it will be this year. It's one thing to meet people from all over the Country online, but then meeting them in person is the REAL DEAL! It was so cool getting to learn about Blogging, Industry tools and technologies, Real Estate challenges and solutions, but the best part for me was meeting and getting to know ALL the people. Too Much Fun!!


This year, ActiveRain staff and many of our members will be there once again. Hundreds of Industry professionals will travel from all over the Country to take part in "The Connect" this year. The "Bloggers Connect" is one of my favorites. Last year we had a special guest visitor, the #1 ActiveRain Member, "Sharon Simms" who traveled all the way from Florida to be a part of the Real Estate Connect 2007. She has almost 400,000 points! OMG!! And she's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet!

For me personally, it was one of the best events of the entire year. The information, the guest panel of speakers, and the education provided about Blogging was priceless. I also finally got to meet many other AR members in person! It was so awesome. Just a few I remember were Jeff Turner, Teresa Boardman, Brad Inman, Jeff Dowler, Laurie Manny, Mary Pope Handy, Gena Riede, Roberta Murphy, Dustin Luther, Jim Cronin, Brian Brady, Lynda Eisenmann, Marlene Bridges and there were many others. This was where I got to meet Jon and Matt for the very first time. The who's who of Real Estate Bloggers were there in force for sure!


Brad Inman and his staff do a fantastic job coordinating the program. They have special guest speakers, an Internet Marketing Workshop, The Bloggers connect, an Exhibit Hall, and so much more. Here are the schedule details. You can Download them to Ical or Outlook. You can also register here if you like.

You might still want to get the "Early Bird" discount that was offered previously. It's the "Special Bloggers Discount", plus you'll get to participate in some of the Blogging fun!! It's easy, just add a Badge to your Blog, create a post before the event, and then one after the event, and save 150 Bucks. No contest, everyone wins. That's like getting paid to Blog?? DETAILS>>> Your posts should be about the event, here's mine! :-)

If you are planning on attending this year, we'd like to know. I'm trying to arrange some type of ActiveRain Gathering during the program this year (TBA). Let me know if you're coming so we can get an idea of how many to expect. This will be a FUN and COOL event that you Won't want to miss. (I wasn't in Vegas, so I can't compare the two if you ask!) Big Grin!! :-O


We will be there and we hope to see you there too. It's a great opportunity to get RE-Connected with us, other ActiveRain members, and hundreds of other Bloggers and Real Estate Industry Professionals from all over the Country. So come work and play in "The City By The Bay!" It only happens here once a year!!

I'll look forward to seeing the AR group there! 

It definitely is a great event, for all that can make it!  

Zillow is hosting Beer For Bloggers again (free beer!), so watch out for those details.  I'll definitely try to be at anything AR hosts too!!

Sara - I missed the Beer for Bloggers last year, but you can count on me this time. I Promise 

I'll be watching out for all the details!  :-)

Brad, TLW and I had planned on coming but our plans have changed so we won't be there. Bummer!!!! But we will be gearing up for the NAR convention in Orlando this November. Hopefully that will be another good opportunity to have an AR gathering.

Matt - I did that one in Mixpo!  I also have a couple in Real Estate shows, but haven't figured out how to add video in those.  I better call Jeff T. about that one.  BTW - You still haven't found your clue?  I haven't see it. :-)

Posted by Justin Williams, Loan Officer (Independent) almost 12 years ago

Brad,

Good thing you reminded us about it coming right up. It's a stimulating event that can really put your finger on the pulse of real estate and mortgage blogging. Besides, meeting fellow AR members is another highlight.

Posted by Esko Kiuru almost 12 years ago
Brad - what a great video memory! and thanks for the good words. Sorry I won't be there this year (maybe Lenn will make it, as this year's #1) but we're in Portland until July 5th and in Orlando for CyberStars on July 21-22. Hope you all have a great time - and be sure to have blogs and videos for those of us who can't get there.

I'll be there. I just learned about ActiveRain at Inman last year and it took me another 6 months to actually get started. Now 100+ posts and 30,000 points later, I'm looking forward to meeting some of the famous (and infamour) faces in person.

If I make it to San Francisco this year it will likely be a last-minute decision. Looking forward to the AR coverage of Bloggers Connect.

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) almost 12 years ago
TLW - he says he paid you on the spot. The more important question would be, "would you pay him 200.00 to walk into the lake? LOL!~  I think you got a pretty good deal on that one.  :-)))  Wish you guys could make it to RE connect this year, we could all walk into the "Bay" after! haha!! 
Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 12 years ago
Laura - that would be so awesome! Can't wait to finally meet you in person! We'll have something special goin on for sure!!  BTW - thanks for the link you twittered me, I had no idea how many ways you could abbreviate comments like that. Holy Cowabunga!!  MWA~  :-))

Sharon - sounds like you'll be very busy this go around.  It won't be the same without you. Hopefully we'll get to see you again at the NAR in November this year.  I'll keep ya posted about the event as it unfolds. It's going to be a great one this year. There's a rumor that I may be speaking on one of the panels.  Can you guess which one?  :-)) 
Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 12 years ago
Missy - I can't tell you how exciting that is.  I will finally get to meet you AND your daughter. That will make the entire event worth while just because of that!  I can't wait!  Although, you, Maureen and Kristal all together sounds like trouble to me....but fun!!  :-)) 
Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 12 years ago
Terry - between Jeff Turner (if he comes again this year) and myself, there may be a great deal of the event online and live via our Blogs, Twitter, Utterz, and whatever other tech tools we decide to use while there.  We'll have to censor some of the stuff though, that's privileged info only for those who are there! LOL!~  I know you understand! :-))

Mara - I'm putting you down on the list, you just have to make it.  If the company lure jet wasn't flying in our dignitaries, I'd have them swing by and pick you up. :-))   I really do hope you can make it.  You only live once and this event really is "living!"  You won't ever forget it if you come.

Hi Brad, thanks for the Twitter nudge this morning.  I never thought to look for you on there.  I am signing up for Connect this weekend.  Copied the button last week and forgot about it.  Look forward to seeing you there.

Brad,

I met Sharon a few times and she is very nice and know a few others from talking to them over the phone.... but can't they ever plan it a bit closer for me? I don't have the luxury to travel to SF...way too long of a flight for me solo...

Posted by Neal Bloom, Realtor CRS-Weston FL Real Estate (Brokered by eXp Realty LLC) almost 12 years ago
Brad, I really enjoyed Real Estate Connect in NYC in January but will unfortunately not be making it out to this one in San Francisco.  Maybe next year in NY again?
Posted by Brian Block, Northern Virginia & D.C. Real Estate (RE/MAX Allegiance, Managing Broker/Branch Vice President) almost 12 years ago
Brad, I really want to go but am not sure...NC is pretty far away.  When I lived in CA is was easy.  This year should be great.  I can't wait to hear all about it!

OK Brad, I've printed everything out, clipped together & put in my daily file & assigned the task: "ask for a miracle" to the contents. I do believe that miracles are a simple fact of this lifetime--- and we do live in an abundant and infinitly Creative Universe... so... I'm expecting to SEE YOU THERE! :-)

Neal - then don't go solo, bring a friend!  I know it's a bit far from Florida, but you would try and swing it if it benefited your business right?  I think you should come.  You will definitely benefit from all that you'll come away with after attending one of these.  I'm not sure if Florida is on their schedule, maybe check their website to see if your area is included in the tour schedule.
Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 12 years ago
Brian - I heard the NYC conference was awesome too.  Wish I could be there as much as I wish you could be here. Maybe I'll try and make it out to the NY event this year.  If I can get on one of the panels there, or be a guest speaker, then Jon might endorse and approve it.  
Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 12 years ago
Diane - it does seem far when we have access to so many at our fingertips right here in the rain.  NC is a ways away, but it would be worth the travel time and expense to join us..IMO!  I'll be leaving Tuesday this week to head for Tennessee, for a one day training in Dyersburg.  How far are you from Dyersburg Tennessee? :-)
Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 12 years ago
Mara - It won't take a miracle to get you there, just a plane ticket! LOL!~ But I know what you mean, sometimes it takes a miracle to squeeze it into our busy and hectic schedules.  I am looking forward to that "Miracle" and seeing you there!

Brad....your blogs are always entertaining, educational and excellent sources of ideas and information!

SFO sounds awesome...but not sure we can swing that....but, I'll keep an eye on it...maybe something big will happen in the next month or so and give me the push ($$$$) to go!

This post was removed from the "Newbies Group" today, my apologies for mis-posting.  It was unintentional to put this in a group where the post clearly did not meet the groups guidelines. It was an assumption on my part that the "Newbies" might be interested, I should have re read the group guidelines.  Totally my bad!!

Brad - What a great little video you put together. I wish I could have been last year it looked like fun. This year we have a baby on the way so it looks like I won't be able to make it. Oh well, I'm sure there will be plenty more to attend in the future.

Brad,  Definitely going to be there.  Couldn't make NYC earlier this year, but made my reservations right after that.  See you and the other Rainers in SF.

Posted by Marc Grossman, GRI, Greater Orlando Real Estate Broker (Marc It Sold!) almost 12 years ago

Hey Robert - thanks man.  Congrats on the new addition.  It will be even better this year so I'll try to capture as much as I can on video, film, and Blog so that you can enjoy having the baby this year with your wife.  I'll make sure I post enough stuff to get you fired up about coming next year!  :-) Congratulations again!

Nyles - yes, I do believe RE Connect comes to New York, at least they did last year.  You might want to check their site and see what other venues they have calendared for this year.  I say just come to both! lol~  We'd love to have you there.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 12 years ago

We are starting to get closer to the RE Connect event. We will be announcing the "Winners" of the MakeOver 2 TakeOver Contest and awarding the prizes.  Make sure you join us for this years event.  AR will be having a gathering sometime during the 3 day connect, watch for more details on that to follow...come connect with us this year, it really will be a blast and worth the time and effort to be there, I promise!!  :-)

Brad, scratch my comment from 2 months ago.  As one of the finalists in the Makeover competition, I've booked my flight for San Francisco and looking forward to joining you at Inman.  Any word yet on the AR gathering?

Do you plan on bringing your guitar with you?

guitars? jam sessions? ohhh, maybe i need to pack up my hammered dulcimer! (after all, I was in college in SF when I first discovered it at a Ranaissance Faire...) Really looking forward to getting together at Inman :-)
