WRAP-UP - SoCal CRS August Quarterly Meeting and GOOGLE UNIVERSE BOOTCAMP

Aug. 21, 2012
Categorized in: Meetings

The 3rd quarterly SoCal CRS Educational and Networking Meeting on August 17 in beautiful Santa Barbara CA was a resounding success by all reports.

The highlight of the event (from 9 am until 4 pm) was the GOOGLE UNIVERSE BOOTCAMP taught by G. William James. I suspect there wasn't an attendee in the room who didn't feel some sense of being overwhelmed with the wealth of information (and the 42-pg. handout we all got after the class).  We all have a lot to implement!! But even if you are using SOME of the best Google apps you will be well ahead of the crowd!

Stay tuned - I'll share a FEW of the best tips I came away with in the near future.

Here's the first - Back up your text messages on your Smartphones with SMS Backup and Restore.

If you want to go truly mobile, the Google Universe of applications will do it, and this class made it all possible for about 60 people. Integrating Google Voice, Contacts, Drive, Calendar and more will help you become more proficient. If you would attend, stay tune - we hope to be able to offer this again. Plus if you have a chance to learn from G. William James, I encourage you to do so.

Several of the Chapter's Platinum sponsors attended, including Hallmark Escrow/Coast Cities Escrow; First American Natural Hazards Disclosures; and First American Home Buyers Protection.

Our 50/50 raffle raised $285 for Habitat for Humanity

Recap of the Q1 2012 SoCal CRS

Real Estate

Educational and Networking Meeting

The first quarterly meeting sponsored by the Southern California Chapter of CRS was held on March 9 at the Atrium Hotel in Irvine, with approximately 40 attendees.

That is just 40 people who got to hear STEVE HARNEY from www.KeepingCurrentMatters.com and Keeping Current Matters Blog AND come away with some impressive statistics and information to share with buyers and sellers about the real state of our housing market and the impact of the SHADOW INVENTORY on the market in the coming months. Here is a sample:

For those of you who could not make it, or opted out for one reason or another, you really missed out on some relevant information, terrific charts and graphs, and some strategies to speak to buyers and sellers about the decisions they ought to be making in the next 90 - 120 days.

But I encourage you to visit www.KeepingCurrentMatters.com to see the information that is available to you to use in your marketing and buyer/seller discussions as a member. And SUBSCRIBE for free to his blog, Keeping Current Matters Blog, with daily relevant information you can use to speak about the housing market based on current data and opinions, not media headlines-ese.

LINDA EISENMANN won the 50/50 Raffle and very generously donated her 50% back to HABITAT FOR HUMANITY. Thank you, Lynda!

MAXINE GOLDEN was selected as the featured CRS of the Quarter and had the chance to record a video that is featured in our blog and on our website. Here's the video.

We want to thank our Platinum Sponsors who attended and had information to share with us - Hallmark Escrow/Coast Cities Escrow; First American Natural Hazard Disclosures; First American Home Buyers Protection; Loss Mitigation Network; and National Sponsor, Pillar to Post.

The Chapter is doing well financially, with more new members than we had at this time last year, and some good income from the city listings and display ads members submitted for the NEW 2012 Referral Directory that will be coming out the first week of April.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting to be held in TEMECULA (local winery site TBD) on June 8, with a wine tasting event the day before.

Mr. Harney is a leading real estate speaker and in the top 100 of Inman's list of most influential real estate professionals. He spoke recently at the National CRS meetings in November in Anaheim and received a standing ovation for his topic about keeping current on what's REALLY going on in the real estate market and why many financial publications (e.g., Wall Street Journal, Moody's) and financial/economic leaders are saying NOW is the time to buy.

You need to have the current data so YOU can talk with YOUR clients and let them know the reality, not what people read in the media headlines or on the Internet.

You WILL come away from this talk with the specific information you can put to use IMMEDIATELY with your buyers and sellers so they truly understand the current financial status of the housing market and the predicitions for where things are heading. We CAN influence the recovery of our housing market and Steve Harney is leading the way.

CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO MESSAGE FROM STEVE HARNEY - you will NOT want to miss this meeting. It just might be the most important information for your business THIS YEAR!
