Real Estate Bar Camp Phoenix 2010-Updated

It was a  beautiful Friday in Scottsdale, Arizona to attend the 2nd annual Real Estate Bar Camp Phoenix 2010.  I was there with with 800+ of my closest friends to learn the latest and greatest about leveraging technology in real estate.

First of all. What’s Bar Camp?

“It’s an “un-conference”. There is no pre-printed agenda. The agenda is built that day and often morphs through the camp as people gather, talk and share.  Anyone can come and write on a board-what they want to discuss.”  Then a weird thing happens. Other Realtors, Lenders, Title Reps, Appraisers, etc.. that want to discuss/learn the same thing just show up.  Its not uncommon to see organized conversations pop-up everywhere.

Simply write on the board what you want to discuss and others with the same interests and needs show up!

The Board Of Wisdom

Who was there?

A literal who’s -who of the social media and technology world.

JayThompson, Jack Smith, Mike Mueller, Steve Groves , Justin McHood, Evo Terra and industry professionals from Realtors, lenders, title, escrow, appraisers, inspectors, virtual assistants, home stagers and anyone else in the real estate world (or any other world — PR, Marketing, etc) who want to improve their social media game.

It was exciting to be around so many people that wanted to learn.  Still think social media is a fad?

I can show you over 800 people who certainly don’t.
