Thoughts on the 2007 NAR Convention

Services for Real Estate Pros with Adonai Business Solutions

WOW!  I don't know about you, but I am totally drained - emotionally and physically.  I have no idea how Agents do it, sitting in seminars all day and then going through the 700+ vendors at the Expo.  It was totally amazing!!

I met Agents from all over the world.....South Africa, New Zealand, England, Canada, several from the Asian market and of course thousands from the US.  When asked, a lot of the Agents told me that we, the Virtual Assistants, had the best concept of the Expo and they wanted to know where we had been all their lives.

In case you didn't have time to stop by the IREAA booth, or weren't at the convention at all this year, make sure you check out our website at to learn how a Virtual Assistant can implement all the new, and existing, products that were featured at the Expo.

Over the next few days, I will be featuring a product that I thought stood out from the rest at the Expo.

First time since becoming a Realtor that I have missed a NAR; my daughter chose this weekend to get married...I tried to get her to change the date; after all, we have to set priorities in our lives!

I can promise you, I will never miss one again and, I do so much appreciate hearing about bits and pieces from everyone.  Thank you for your contribution.

Glad you had a good time.  in 4 years of being a Realtor I have never thought it would be worth while going to that.

Hi Kristi,

It was a great time that's for sure! I can't wait to see which product you are featuring- there were so many good ones.

You VAs are doing your agent clients a great service by checking out what's new, what's working, etc. I always found that chatting with current suppliers/providers was an excellent use of time - learning what's new about the product, and being better able to utilize the product. Usually the owners are there to discuss any problems you're having and any improvements you'd like.
