Whether you are a top producer or have just gotten your real estate license, growing your business is key to your career. Every industry has its cycles. Realtors and brokers know this all too well. Unfortunately, the great recession began by the burst of the mortgage bubble and now we are seeing huge increases in housing prices nationwide.
Successful realtors understand that continuous education is what separates them from the rest, and it is more than just taking classes for CE credits. Aligning yourself with a mentor and getting involved with a network of top producers will go a long way to reaching the goals you have set for yourself as a realtor.
Another important thing to do is to attend webinars and seminars on a wide range of real estate topics to stay abreast of best industry practices. Next week, there is such an in-person event taking place at the Vero Beach Chamber of Commerce on April 28th from 8:30 to 10:30am.
The event, Key Steps on How to Set Yourself Apart in this Real Estate Market, is going to cover several topics. Attendees will learn business building tips, the ins and outs of contracts – do’s and don’ts, and compliance. There will be something for realtors and brokers at every level, whether you just received your license (or are currently studying), or are mid-range in your career, or are a top producer.
The featured speaker is Sallie Wagner and her background is very impressive. Sallie is a licensed real estate broker and real estate instructor. She is co-owner of a real estate school, Prosperity Learning Group, and owner of Intentional Life Coaching. Sallie also co-owns and operates Brokerage and Compliance Resources LLC, providing brokerage and compliance consulting services to various real estate brokerage companies throughout Florida. She is an attorney licensed in Florida and an award-winning author.
Sallie’s law career has spanned over 30 years where she has provided legal and real estate services to government, corporate and individual clients. She has experience in telecommunications, energy/propane supplier, title insurance and healthcare. She has testified before Congress regarding the delivery of legal services. Sallie has also presented financial and tax analysis to Congress regarding proposed legislation affecting multifamily housing.
For four decades, Sallie has studied and implemented transformational success principles, which has elevated her success as a top producer. As a sought-after international speaker, trainer and certified coach, Sallie’s workshops and coaching programs guide participants to identify goals, conquer limitations, and achieve results. Sallie specializes in helping corporate leaders and individuals to build their dreams, accelerate their results, and create richer, more fulfilling lives.
It is for these reasons that Debbi Goodman Venturina, co-owner of Your Home Inspections, asked Sallie to be the featured speaker at this event that she is co-producing with Ellen Contreras of Treasure Coast Connector, LLC.
Debbi and her husband, Dwayne Venturina, enjoy attending networking events to get to know others in the community while building their business. Now that more people are looking to get out of their offices and connect in-person, Debbi thought this was an ideal time to create an event that combined networking while offering something of value for the attendees. Think of it as a mini-conference.
The content for this event has been designed for brokers, realtors and aspiring real estate professionals. Anna Valencia Tillery, VP of Marketing for White Glove Moving, Storage and Delivery is the breakfast sponsor. Anna understands the value of educational events because she is also the producer of the incredibly popular group, Treasure Coast Premier Women’s Network.
Anna produces three educational networking meetings a month for the tri-county area for businesswomen. All the details can be found on her site – Treasure Coast Premier Women’s Network, along with an active Facebook page with thousands of members and an on-line business directory.
To register for the educational/networking real estate event, go to YourHomeInspections.net/event. Even though the event is free, seating is limited, so registering is important so the room is set up to accommodate everyone as well as the breakfast, which will be from Panera Bread – coffee, orange juice, bagels with cream cheese, pastries, and egg soufflé cups.
Make sure to bring a note pad, pen, and plenty of business cards. Arrive promptly at 8:30am to mingle and network with the attendees while having breakfast. After Sallie gives her talk, there will be time for Q&A to address specific real estate questions as it relates to business building, contracts, and compliance.
Bob McCabe, the President of the Chamber, and Board member Deb Avery, will also be on-hand to answer any questions about the community and share all the resources they have to offer. It is a great opportunity to learn more about Vero Beach and Indian River County.
Both Sallie and Debbi were recently interviewed on iHeart radio about this event. If you would like to be kept in the loop of other networking and business events produced by this group, please follow me on Newsbreak.
