Realtors are an interesting group of people. If you want them to attend a meeting or an event, you either have to provide continuing education credits, free food or both. Food is probably the best way to get a group of Realtors together, even for an educational event.
Yesterday we held the first ever RE BarCamp event here in Minnesota. There are some things about RE BarCamps that are important. I am not talking about the camps themselves, but about why they exist. The events represent a grassroots movement started by Realtors because we need more education.
