Trust hugh

 It remains a solid seller’s market.  Inventory (selections) is full and it looks like 2014 will go down as the second best year in total homes sales.  We expect 2015 to set new records for number of sales and price per square foot.

Meanwhile, happy Thanksgiving.  Let us know if we can be helpful – Ken Brand 832-797-1779.

Business Planning Made Easy – Workshop Events

Believe Then Act

Workshop 101 – First Year Pros – November 17th, 10:30 to Noon

New Agents Planning For Early Success and Long Term Growth

One of the hard parts of building a business plan when you start off in the business is that you don’t have past experience to draw from in making estimations.  What do the lead generation systems look like?  How many transactions should I shoot for?  What income is possible for me?  How do I manage my schedule? How do I direct my daily activities to turn into business opportunities?

This workshop will focus on all of these areas and help you create asimple to execute plan for 2015 that will get you to where you want to be in your real estate career.  It will also help you define and position you for the success you are looking for over the next 5 years.

Register for Workshop One on Backagent

Workshop 102 – The GO in GrOw –  November 18th, 10:30 to Noon

Growth – Planning For Increased Production

Maybe you’ve had early success in your career, or maybe you’ve always been a consistent producer, and yet you may feel like there are untapped opportunities.  Many times I’ve seen people implement small changes that make BIG life changing impact on production.  If you are looking to refine systems, and examine opportunities for growth, this workshop is for you.

Register for Workshop Two on Backagent

Workshop 103 –  Advanced Leverage Strategies  – November 18th, 1:00 to 2:30

Efficiencies and Increasing Return Business Planning

You may have experienced massive growth in recent years and you know that it may be time to refine systems, analyze costs, and activities.  You may be on the brink of launching into the next level. You may simply be looking for efficiencies.  Not everyone wants more business.  Maybe you’d just like things to be easier.

Either way, if you feel like you are at the place where you need to examine improving ROI and refining systems, this workshop is for you.  This is for experienced agents that have achieved consistent, recurring business.

Register for Workshop Three on Backagent 

What Do I Need to Bring?

1. Total number of YTD Active, Pending and Closed transactions

2. Total YTD Active, Pending, and Closed volume

3. Source of Each Transaction

4. Average Sale Price

5. Average Commission Rate

6. Percentages for Listings versus Buyer sales

Safety Webinar – Tuesday, 1pm 

From the Desk of Amy Chorew

Every day, agents interact with strangers and put themselves at risk. The recent events in Arkansas made us realize that all too clearly. We do not want to believe that crime can happen to us, but most people are unprepared for such an instance.

To increase security and reduce liability, join us for a practical session with Robert Siciliano on the the essentials of Real Estate Security. Robert will provide you with the fundamentals of safety and the strategies for security to help you make smartertime, money and life-saving decisions.

DateTuesday, October 21, 2014

Time: 2pm Central Time

Session number: 591 623 614

You Learn How To:

  • Devise an effective, ongoing office security plan.
  • Learn who your prospect is and how to identify predators.
  • Create constant communication – make it known where you’ll be, when and with whom.
  • Hold a safe open house; not everyone’s here to buy.
  • Plan distress codes: green, yellow, and red are the good, the bad and the ugly!
  • Conduct personal marketing that does not make you a target.
  • Implement a buddy system- two heads are better than one.
  • Set up a dress code for safety and success.
  • Trust your intuition- it’s a person’s best friend.
  • Auto security and take predators “for a ride.”
  • Control your self-defense with Self-Offense.

Meet our Speaker, Robert Siciliano.

As a Security Speaker his “tell it like it is” style is sought after by major media outlets, executives in the C-Suite of leading corporations, meeting planners, and community leaders to get the straight talk they need to stay safe in a world in which physical and virtual crime is commonplace. Siciliano is accessible, real, professional, and ready to weigh in and comment at a moment’s notice on breaking news.
