Dear Ann and Jeff,
Today's set of workshops with Dick Betts was the best I have had in 10 years!
Most of us who pay and sign on for SupraKey, do not realize the many new functions of our of Supra keyholders, Smartphones and PDA's. They are astounding. If we learn how to use the "Bells and Whistles", we will all profit-in increased customer and client satisfaction and less of a work load on us.
Unfortunately, there were less than 50 people at Rockland class today. (They probably did not know how important the classes would be for their careers.)
If we had another Rockland class soon, I believe it would be very worth while. An announcement about the class should mention some of the important topics that would be taught.
In the meanwhile, I am giving all those at my firm the web site address of our teacher, where they will find much important information, as well as, the way to obtain free or reduced price-smart phones through his site!
Dick Betts also said he would answer questions re problems via e mail-a wonderful service for all of us. (I would have loved it 2 weeks ago when I bought my 755 Treo smart phone and the store staff did not really know how to explain most of the aspects of the marvelous machine.)
This was a very invigorating day for all who were there.
Thank you so much for setting it up.
I am soooooooooo glad I made it to your seminar and workshop.
Now I know a blackberry is not for me and I was hesitant to purchase one to begin with...
Actually, it was a lot to process, and the truth is, I was trying to make a decision about what technology I was going to invest in. A new laptop I could drag around or a side-kick or a blackberry...
I was overwhelmed and lacking the time to do the initial research...
As a newly licensed realtor I really didn't know what I needed or how I was ever going to get organized except via the old trial and error...
The fact that I can use outlook and those contacts... wow....
We went back to our office exclaiming the benefits of taking your seminar and workshop... and telling people what a great National Speaker Real Estate you really are.
I look forward to exploring your web site. I hope to see you back again soon!
Thank you so much for the incredible day of learning today at Monroe Community College for the GRAR. Not only was it chock full of information, it was downright inspirational! (I was the one who said to you that it changed my life, after class)
Again, thanks so very much for helping us all tremendously today!

Thanks again for getting me ready for the 'world' and I am very very excited to begin blogging .. I just have to think through this and then I'll have questions I'm sure.. But your recommendations are incredibly terrific.
Thanks again and I'll let you know as I start the journey!!

As a Realtor for almost 10 years now I have been to many seminars, classes and training sessions. Yours was at the top of the list. I learned more practical uses for my Treo phone than I thought possible. The class was fun and informitive. The other REALTORS that I talked to that attended your class and I are highly interested in discussing talking another class when you are in California again. Once again thank you so much and thank you for your time.
