I'm Back ... And if I did it right, Most of you wouldn't even know I was Away !!!
So I flew out of Philadelphia with my wife, Leslie, on February 9th to Tampa. We picked up a car and drove for a short time staying in a motel further north. We toured "the Villages" the next morning so that my wife could return while I was in my week-long workshop. That was interesting ... I arrived with some questions, leaving with some positive feelings - but still not entirely certain that would be the winter location for me. But we may stay there for a week next winter.
The annual "Keller Williams Family Reunion" was held in Orlando from Saturday through Wednesday. Along with seven of us from our south Jersey Shore Market Place, we had a great time. I was impressed with the fact that over 9,000 KW agents were in attendance. Generally, I stayed in workshop sessions through about 4:00 or 5:00 most days. These were great presentations which also included meeting a wide varitey of agents throughout the country. Of course, after reading Gary Keller's first two books; I attended every session that he had. I particularly enjoyed his first session (will cover this in future postings) and his last one where he interviewed four of the top KW agents in the country.
It was also a social gathering in that we spent a lot of time with our own group as well as meeting and talking with other KW agents. On Wednesday, my wife and I head south again staying with friends for several nights below Sarasota. We then continued north stopping to meet with several realtors (always talking about property) and arriving in Tampa.
We again met six more Ocean City people for a week-long cruise in the western Caribbean. That was the most relaxing portion of our trip. So we flew back to Philadlephia last night and drove back to Ocean City in time for the Oscars.
It's back to work for me today!!! dap
