If you've just crawled out from underneath a rock, or spent the last 6 weeks living in a cave, then you probably aren't aware of the current ActiveRain Event of the Year - the Makeover2Takeover Team Competition!
Here's a quick refresher course if you haven't been following our Weekly Challenges:
Whether your Real Estate career has just begun, or is in dire needed a complete overhaul, here's your chance!
Think "Top Chef," less the cooking.
Or "Extreme Home Make-Over," but without Ty and his annoying megaphone.
The Biggest Loser, only you're a Winner!
From the same folks that brought you 'Project Blogger" comes the latest reality 'realty' event....
The Contest is simple: We selected 16 'Makeover' Teams, each comprised of one (1) seasoned real estate veteran (Mentor), and their chosen apprentice. Over the course of this 8 week adventure (leading up to the 2008 SF Inman Connect), the Mentor/Apprentices (M2T Teams) are facing a series of weekly challenges, aimed specifically at developing the apprentice's image/abilities as a top performing real estate agent.
The mentors and apprentices are chronicling their experiences on the official 'MakeoverToTakeover' blog.
Competition Began: Friday, May 16th
Competition Ends: The 3rd week of July. The Winning Team will be announced at Inman's SF Blogger's Connect 2008
Weekly Challenges: Each week the Teams have been facing difficult elimination challenges designed to develop and hone the Apprentice's professional skills, and to test the Mentor's ability to teach/guide the Apprentice.
ActiveRain Members can view the Weekly Challenge Results on the official 'Makerover2Takeover' blog.
Scoring: The last three teams standing will be invited to join us at Inman Connect in San Francisco where the winning team will be announced. In addition to the final challenge, the overall body of work will also be evaluated to determine the winning team.
Judging Criteria: Each week, when that weeks challenge is announced, judging criteria will be spelled out. Our panel of distinguished Judges will score each Team based on that criteria.
Prizes: Points and prizes are awarded to the first place team for each Weekly challenge. The grand prize will be a Web2.0 Marketing package worth many 1000's of dollars. You can look forward to prizes from the who's who of online real estate.
