A Shrinking Crowd…What’s Up with That?
Today I attended the first day of the annual Tennessee Association of Realtors 2011 Spring Conference in Franklin, Tn. It seems that every year, there are fewer and fewer people who are attending. The workshops are always informative and I believe in staying current on changes, trends and general knowledge about the real estate industry.
I’ve recently obtained the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) and Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designations and classes for both definitely had room for more attendees. I know for some, it seems the market is slow. I’m staying very busy working with my clients and by obtaining these designations. Of course, I’m at the office tonight, catching up on email and paperwork. These hours and the work ethic it takes to be successful is not for all…could that be why the crowd is shrinking?
