Karel Murrayopens IMAGE file We are excited to announce that we have secured the teaching services of Ms. Karel Murray, DREI, one last time before she rides off into the retirement sunset.  Yes folks, that’s right, after a long career in the real estate education arena, Karel is hanging up her teacher’s hat.  We know she has been a popular instructor for us over the years, and she will be missed in the future.

So, MAKE A POINT to get your seat reserved for these great sessions on October 25 and 26.  They will be the FINAL FOUR classes she will be conducting in our board. Each class is just $30 for 3 hours of elective CE credit.

In Europe, stepping on to a subway is preceded by a recorded warning “Mind the Gap”. Now, more than ever, real estate licensees are working with a highly diverse group of consumers. Licensees no longer can expect to achieve measurable results in their marketing efforts by operating in an information vacuum and not acknowledging the impact of generational influences. Bridge the gap between generations by developing a targeted For Sale by Owner and Expired prospecting campaign with the intent of making YOU the information resource when it comes to real estate. Get specific in designing your approach to the different generations and uncover your overall effectiveness by initiating a personal procedural audit process that will help ensure your career stays aligned with a changing marketplace. Targeting communication to the needs of different generations will help create powerful, meaningful connections with the consumer and will build your referral base. When you “mind the gap” everyone wins.
