The Real Estate Investment Network held their annual ACRE (Authentic Canadian Real Estate Program) convention over the weekend at the Pearson Convention Centre in Toronto. The objective? To educate attendees on how to make good investment decisions when the economy is booming, stagnating or even busting.

When you get enough real estate-minded folks in one big room, it’s only a matter of time until the tweets begin to fly. Check out our “Storify” story below to see who was saying what on Twitter over the weekend.
