ActiveRain Cowgirls & Boys Meet-Up in Dallas, Texas
I took, what I thought might be a 'dare' to bring my cowboy boots to Dallas, seriously and did! So, of course, I had to wear them to the meet-up, Dallas style - right?!
The first day of the CRS Sell-a-bration was packed with classes and of course, the Super Bowl game! Unfortunately, the place was so packed, I couldn't spot one single ActiveRain member so, I anxiously awaited the meet-up the following evening. I took a self-guided tour of the fabulous grounds of the resort, the Gaylord Texan, so that finding my way around and back to my room (the place was enormous) wouldn't require me to look at the map of the grounds the entire time! What a fantastic resort - I highly recommend it if you're ever visiting Dallas.
The following day was the beginning of the main event and I quickly found my Carlsbad friend, Jeff Dowler and my 'class buddy,' Lisa Von Domek! We all were anxiously awaiting the ActiveRain meet-up and the classes flew by on Monday for us. Lisa & I had some great Texas bar-b-que at one of the hotel restaurants for lunch and returned to a short afternoon of classes.
If you aren't a CRS, I highly recommend this designation. The quality of the classes they provide are second-to-none, as are the quality of members. It's a group of agents who challenge one another to be the best in the business.

Back to ActiveRain! Time for the meet-up finally arrived and we congregated outside one of the hotel bars on their plush leather couches and settled in for hours and hours of talking! Of course, we knew one another when each arrived and were so excited to have representation from Florida, California, Hawaii and more! It was such an honor to meet them all face-to-face and let me tell you, each one of them is EXACTLY as you think they would be! Kind, smart, engaging and the conversation never stopped!
*AJ, Lisa, me, Patricia
What a treat to meet each and every one of them! Patricia Feager came in from Flower Mound, TX, Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES from Spring Hill, FL, Randy Prothero from Mililani, HI, of course, Jeff Dowler from Carlsbad, CA & Lisa Von Domek (the host & hostess), Sharon Parisi (both from Dallas), @Cristel Silver, @Craig Kaplan and @Lorrie Simler. Also spotted was @Sally Lawrence and, of course, an original ActiveRainer like none other, Jeff Turner was caught after the meet-up for a photo shoot!
Each and every one of these ActiveRain members were the sincere, savvy and fun people that I thought they would be! Of course, I had a grand time and know that everyone else did as well!
