We are often asked why we attend the annual Florida Realtors Convention. I’ll do my best to be honest and share why we feel this is important. Of course when I say we, I am talking about me and my partner, Michael Bohn. We are the The Bohn Team at RE/MAX Professionals.
We feel that knowledge is power. When we attend the Florida Realtors Convention in Orlando each August, we have so many opportunities and choices for educational sessions all day long each day. Listening, learning, and networking provides great take-aways from the convention. Perfecting our services to clients is very important.
Getting out of town to a wonderful venue, The Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, makes me feel like a vacation too. Yes, it’s a business trip, but it’s coincides with the feeling of getting out of town, a change of scenery. For us, it’s a great motivator for our busy business brains.
Of course in addition to the motivational speakers at the Opening Session and Closing Session, there is the Trade Show. There are plenty of vendors at the trade show that are promoting their products to help Realtors. We always take our time at the Trade Show too. Looking for the next idea for good client gifts, promotional products to use in our real estate business.
As Realtors, we must know our local market to be successful. Yet we understand that in addition to our local Board of Realtors, we do belong to a state association (Florida Realtors) and the National Association of Realtors.
And finally, learning and knowing the importance of how Realtors can influence what happens in our Sunshine State regarding property rights, fair housing, homeowner protection, water issues in Florida, environmental issues. As Florida Realtors, we do MORE than just help buy & sell real estate.
