Family Reunion Thoughts

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty / Atlanta - Sugarloaf

Keller Willams Family Reunion was great this year.  It was my first Family Reunion, so I didnt know what to expect.  Thinking back now about the conference I'm left with a few thoughts. 

First, I was struck by the power of technology and how it can make a hugh difference in my practice.  I'm new to a lot of this, but integrating technology is my new charge for 2008.  Hopefully, by this time next year, I won't be such a newbie to the blogosphere.

I also took away the importance of "education" to a real estate agent.  I attended several of the top agent forums and to a tee, they all mentioned the importance of education and coaching.  Another great thing to focus on in 2008.

All in all, I had a great time, made a lot of new contacts, and am already looking forward to Family Reunion 2009.

My first reunion too and I could not agree more.  The friendliness and caring that I succeed was great.

I am just two weeks old Keller wise and this was a lot to take in, I look forward to the opportunities and challenge.

Continued success!!!!!
