Stepping Out to Move Up ~ REBlogWorld

By
Real Estate Agent with The Berkshire Group Realtors

There are many things in life that puzzle me, but one of the most perplexing are real estate agents who never attend another class to improve their skills. As a life-long student of learning, I've garnered more initials after my name than letters in it. My intent wasn't to get top-heavy in designations, but to improve my skills and challenge myself. After the first decade and a half in real estate I found I was too focused on the business to be able to see beyond it.

That was a mistake, a big mistake.

In 1997 I went looking to build a website to generate real estateBig Dog business. Today making that statement doesn't sound so far-fetched, but trust me, in 1997 when I said it people stare back at me as though I had a third eye in the middle of my brow.

My quest to accomplish this goal pushed me beyond the borders of the real estate industry. Lucky for me at the time there was no one who knew much of anything about what I was trying to do so off into the real world I wondered.

As luck would have it, stepping out was the first step in moving up for me.

Since that time, whenever I've endeavored to learn something new, I've made an effort to learn it outside my industry.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not trashing the real estate industry, I just found there's more to learning then listening to the people who teach and not actually "do." I really like learning from those who are actually in the trenches, tweeking and refining things to make them spin smooth. There's an immense credibility attached to the reality of being success yourself before you teach others how to be.

That's my short shory on WHY I AM GOING TO REBLOGWORLD, Blogworld & New Media Expo. If you haven't heard of it or haven't decided to attend it's not too late to consider.

One month from today it starts, September 19, 20 & 21, 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

You will be delighted to know the speakers are the movers and shakers of the real estate industry who are actually EXPERIENCING the success not just talking it up! Read the list below and tell me who so far has taught you the most...

* Dan Green
* Daniel Rothamel
* David Smith & Rich Jacobson
* Dustin Luther
* Jason Berman - Event Organizer
* Jeff Turner
* Jim Duncan
* Kelley Koehler
* Mariana Wagner
* Matt Fagioli
* Meet our moderators. Jan O'Brien, Kevin Boer, & Pat Kitano
* Michael Price
* Mike Mueller
* Morgan Brown
* Teresa Boardman
* Todd Carpenter - Event Organizer

Each and everyone of these speakers has the depth of experience and is willing to share with those who are willing to listen. A day with any 3 of them would be worth the price of admission alone!

Day 2 and 3 are both filled with Internationally acclaimed personalities from outside the industry plus an exhibition hall filled with more blog fodder.

Hope to see you at REBlogWorld!

Kristal - have a wonderful time there. I'm signed up for RE Tech South in March in Atlanta, so I'm hoping to corner 3 experts as well.

One of the things I really like about the annual Leaders in Luxury conference put on by the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing is that they bring in speakers from outside the real estate industry. It's been a big WOW every year I've attended.

Another good event, as you know, is when like-minded productive real estate agents get together and share ideas, like CyberProfessionals.  Looking forward to seeing you in Orlando. 

Stay a couple more days in Florida so that you can come over to St Pete and stay with us!
