The Momentum & Spirit of REBarcamps

Follow us on TwitterWe are hoping some of these folks will be attending our BarCamp in Raleigh on November 6th.  I was surprised that there's not a GROUP on AR for RE BarCamp (might need to create one). 

If you are considering holding a RE BARCAMP in your area - please let us know.  We are doing our best to "journal" what we are doing, and what obsticals we are running into.  It's fun!  FOLLOW US ON TWITTER @REBCRDU

I've been fortunate enough to attend a number of the REBarcamps over the past year - (San Francisco, New York City, Houston, Seattle, Los Angeles, Portland, Salt Lake City).  At EVERY event, attendees and organizers ask a fundamental question -

How do we keep the momentum that we've built at the REBarcamp? - exchanging ideas, learning new technologies, staying motivated.  Well, Richardo Bueno, organizer of the REBarcamp-Los Angeles has figured it out:


Hey Gang,

I'm happy to say that we're having a Realtor/Blogger Meetup & Tweetup this Thursday at Aroma Coffee & Tea from 11:00am - 1:00pm. if you're a blogger, techie, and social media wannabe, then this is the place to be!

Most of the group is the same crowd that you saw at REBarCamp Los Angeles so there should be some great energy in the room and a lot of great discussions circulating around. Also, we'll be talking about a little mastermind group that we've been thinking of hosting...

(More details on that can be found at For now, here are the details on the meetup: Thursday Meetup @ Aroma Coffe & Tea If you can make it, be sure to RSVP via the event page so we can call ahead an reserve enough table space.

See ya there!

Ricardo Bueno


The lesson here - REBarcamp is not a one-time event. It's a movement that you have to ride every week, every month in your local area.  Take advantage of your new network and contacts.  Create a group on - continue the positive energy by getting together with your new friends and colleagues.

(And Ricardo - you are the man! Nice work!)

We have a very active REBar group out here, a lot of them are on ActiveRain, promoting and informing of upcoming events and such. Such a great opportunity for everyone to learn something.

Good info Eleanor...I think this statement says it all... "REBarcamp is not a one-time event. It's a movement that you have to ride every week, every month in your local area."

You know, that little luncheon has taken a life of it's own... People from every keep asking when the next one will be :-) If you just give people a space (a venue), make it fun and conversational, the rest just kinda takes care of itself! 

Look forward to seeing all of you!
