Warm hearts, big smiles, and lots of heartfelt conversations among AR and CRS friends took place on Monday, February 6, 2018. It was an especially good round-up of friends, many who traveled the distance to join local Dallas, residents, Lisa Von Domek (host), Sharon ParisiLorrie Semler, and myself. Those with CRS Designations include:


  • Randy Prothero (CRS/AR, Milalan, HI)
  • Jeff Dowlder (CRS/AR, Carlsbad, CA)
  • Lisa Von Domek (CRS/AR, Cedar Hills, TX)
  • Debe Maxwell (CRS/AR, Charlotte, NC)
  • Christei Silver (CRS
  • Silvia Dukes (CRS/AR, Silver Hills, FL)
  • Joanne Fraser (CRS/AR, Los Altos, CA)


CRS Sell-A-Bration is a celebration of friendship while education helps them to maintain a fertile mind. The camaraderie of travelers in the RAIN for the CRS event was a unique experience. Those who hold this high designation share great gifts: generosity, a cultivated taste, deep understanding through higher standards of quality education, and the gift of who they are as individuals!  It was an honor to have them come to Dallas from many different cities and states. Next year, they will be in Las Vegas. Something I learned from these beautiful minds who invested their time to achieve this designation is, they don't just compete for business, they celebrate each other's success by sharing referrals to those who hold this special designation. Something else I discovered by listening to their stories, i.e., Silvia Dukes, CHIPS/CRS/SRCS/AR is goodwill can be won when your passion is ignited to support each other in different parts of the world. Those who earned their CRS are the greatest gift to the AR Real Estate community.

Kathleen Daniels - I think we ALL miss them, especially RainCamps. I guess we just have to do it on our own. Somebody has to take the initiative! How I wish we could meet in person. You would have fit right in at our little/big meet up yesterday. Yes! Yes! Yes! Perhaps at another time. I understand that CRS is having their annual Sell-a-Bration in Las Vegas next year. It was funny to discover, I'm not the only one who isn't a fan of Vegas but I would love to be there to meet this group and more, especially you next year! Wouldn't that be fun! The funny thing is, I have never been to Las Vegas and never had any desire except for a possible AR meet-up!

Oh, what a TREAT to finally meet you in person, Patricia! I'm SO glad that you were able to sneak away for the meet-up! What wonderful conversations, lots of laughter and I have to say, it was so nice to just be able to chat about anything and everything with all of you! Never a dull moment, for sure! Until next time...
