Convention

Well here we go, Century 21 Convention 2012! Woke up this morning at 5:30 to hop in the shower to get all set for our flight at 8:15. My wife, Mandee – AKA @valleyreagent to the twitter world, and I have been waiting for this trip for months. We attended the National Association of Realtors Convention in November of 2010 located in none other than New Orleans. This great city quickly stole our hearts as we soaked up as much RE info as we could. As we are flying to good ole NOLA as I type, we think of food, libation, cigars, great friends, and the fantastic seminars we will be in over the next 4 days.

Question 1 – Why Do I Go?
Question 2 – What do I hope to achieve this year?
Question 3 – When will I be home so you can set up showings? lol

Answer 1 – There are so many reasons to go to this Great Company’s(Century 21) conventions. They do a great job of putting together top notch speakers and presenters for very relevant topics. These classes teach me to better serve you, my clients, in so many ways. New technology, new ways to advertise and market your home, and new ways to cope with new and difficult trends in the market such as short sales. Now don’t get me wrong, Century 21 always does a great job of picking venues that we, as agents, will not be upset with haha. Last year we enjoyed convention in the very wholesome LAS VEGAS, and now we head to NOLA. As soon as I get back I will go though all of my emails, contacts, contracts, and voicemails to make sure I am up to date with my clients, but I must admit I will also need a confession w my priest and a new liver lol.

Answer 2 – To achieve business goals should ALWAYS be the number 1 reason to go to convention. My goals for this convention will be 3 fold and as follows….

1. To find the next big venue to advertise my property listings to increase exposure and sell them quicker for more money.

2. Learn some new recruiting tips to identify great agents in my market place and have them join our Gold Standard company and help them increase their business at least 50% in the next 12 months.

3. Take some investment classes to learn the new trending formulas for flips and multi unit investments to help my clients that invest through me. Lets make 2012 a great and profitable year!

Answer 3 – Don’t worry guys, I will be available via Phone/Txt/Email/FB/Twitter and LinkedIn. I will physically be back in the Lehigh Valley late Wed, and back in the office Thurs morning. If you need me just reach out and we will organize for next week. Love you guys, and I will talk to you soon!

Real Estate Career Seminar

How many years have gone by that you said to yourself, “Self, I would love to be a Realtor”? You juggled with this thought year after year and have done nothing with it. Why do you think you are still sitting here reading this and you are not an Agent? I will tell you why, because you are scared to death of the unknown. Well, its time things got a bit easier for you.

Myself, Frank Renaldi Sr., and Carol Snyder Hare will be hosting the first Century 21 Pinnacle Career Seminar of 2012. At this seminar you will be able to ask as many questions as your little heart desires. We will be there as a resource for you to find out if this is a career move that makes sense for you.

There are so many benefits to this career, but the transition has always been a bit difficult for some. These tough economic times have forced us to examine what situations fit this opportunity. Honestly, some of our most successful agents have been able to transition from active military to civilian life, because they understand the need for structure, drive, and self reliance/generation. Also, there is a huge opportunity here in the Lehigh Valley for those on unemployment to take the real estate courses and start the training and still have the ability to collect right up to your first commission check!

What are you waiting for?  The time is now to start a life where YOU are the boss of your business and nobody can limit you on your yearly earnings.  Please contact me as soon as possible to reserve your spot, seating is limited.  It is not required to bring any documents, but a Resume/Bio would be appreciated.  Thank you for your time and I hope to see you on Thursday!

Respectfully,

Frank J. Renaldi
