Florida Realtors Mid-Winter Meetings 2014
 
Well, we've officially wrapped up our Florida Realtors Mid-Winter meetings for 2014.  This was my first trip to the meetings as a sitting Director of both our Orlando Regional Realtor Association and Florida Realtors, and it was a pretty good weekend.
 
There were lulls over the past 4 days, to be sure- and I'll be frankly honest in saying that some parts of the weekend were abject bore-fests...bore-a-paloozas.  Aside from the few bore-tastic moments, though, there were a lot of instances that reinforced my knowledge of how much … (2 comments)

An opportunity to serve- delayed and realized
 
Being a thankful kind of person comes with both positives and negatives.  Being one of those types of folks, I’ve always been keenly aware of the positives.  Thankful folks are cognizant of how they received whatever they’re thankful for- and mindful to remember that others might not have as much.  Folks content and thankful for what they have tend to worry far less about what they lack- and far more about others who lack what they have.  Folks thankful for their accomplishments can revel … (4 comments)

No parking in the parking space
 
Hmmm... I'm all for parking rules and everything, but my question here- in a Wacky Wednesday-turned-Wacky Thursday photo kind of way would be this:
If they don't want you to park in all of the parking spaces, why do they mark off all of the parking spaces?
No doubt the inquiring minds of thousands upon thousands of Wawa customers like myself would like to know...

Well, it seems like we just wrapped up the 2012 National Association of Realtors (NAR) annual convention...or "trade show" (or whatever they called that thing) yesterday- but it's already time for the 2013 edition of the Florida Realtors Mid-Winter Meetings.
"What's there to do at the Mid-Winter Meetings?", one might ask.  In short, the answer can be found by viewing the overall schedule:

Congratulations, Steve Merchant- 2013 ORRA Chairman of the Board
 
Tonight's the big night for our Orlando Regional Realtor Association (ORRA) - as we're holding this thing called Red, White and Groove. It's part annual awards presentation, part social hour- but also serves as our inaugural. As I post this, outgoing chairman Stephen Baker (RE/MAX Central) has just handed leadership of our 8,800-member board to our 2013 Chairman of the Board, Steve Merchant of Global Realty International.
 
I'd like to also recognize the newly-elected members of our Board of … (0 comments)

Another interesting report here, and our current trends continue.  Doesn't take a serious market analyst to figure this one out. Some highlights...or lowlights:
 
Average Mortgage Rate- Down
Overall inventory- Down
Active with contract- Down
New listings- Down
New contracts- Down
Under contract- Down
Back on market- Down
 
The clock's ticking, sand's running out of the hourglass for folks sitting on the fence and "waiting on....".  Time to step to the plate or be left without a seat when the music stops!

I don't believe I won one of the Director positions.  That's not me really believing that I won- yet saying I don't believe I won for the benefit of others, mind you.  I truly believe I've fought … (0 comments)
