ActiveRain and All Things Real Estate...Zoom...Zoom!

 

This month's ActiveRain Challenge gets straight to the point of zoom meetings. While I have participated in quite a few, some life events have taken priority plus the focus is also on maintaining a real estate business.

 

Have been witness to so many professionals who have given expert presentations. I would love to see a legal team do a panel on national law with all things that affect us as real estate industry professionals.

 

For example, proper buyer and seller representation for newbies, marketing and advertising, disclosing facts that may adversely affect the integrity of a property to prevent repercussion plus the pitfalls of limited agency.

 

Many new agents are disparagingly disrespectful to other industry professionals. And yes, some seasoned agents still strong arm or lack good communication. The spirit of cooperation is sorely lacking in this market. 

 

I asked an ActiveRain attorney member to participate and he respectfully declined. 

 

Also, would like to know how funds are allocated prior to a decision made by the National Association of Realtors. It appears all is said and done by the time we read about it in a printed publication or online.

 

Perhaps a NAR board member would consider enlightening us on their processes.

 

The zoom meetings brought us all together in real time when it was impossible to travel to see each other in person. However, I was able to visit with Anna Banana, Jan Green, Carol Williams and Nancy Laswick over drinks and a wonderful meal during a trip to Arizona in July. Our newborn Gbaby boy, Kodah was life-flighted the first time to Banner Hospital.

 

ActiveRain is still the best platform for industry professionals and I so appreciate all the work being done to improve the site and keep us sharing by blogging and commenting. Looking forward to joining everyone again soon.

Those are great suggestions and I hope an attorney can be found that would be willing to present to us about such things.  Also, I would like to know more about NAR since they have not garnered any respect from me, haha.

Getting someone from NAR plus a real estate attorney to enlighten us would be fantastic for a zoom meeting Brian England. We'll see what the future brings!

Some great ideas for Zoom presentations.  We have some members that are agents and Lawyers maybe they can be persuaded to offer  a meeting.

Hi there,

We've actally had a good number of meetings similar to your suggestions.  We've had them pretty much on the state (California) and local level. Along with the presentation their were several others topics (i.e.) fair-housing on a nat'l level.  

You might want to reach out to your state level, it might be easier getting that going

It was so nice meeting you Wanda!  I can tell that your friendships run deep as you are such a great person and friend to many.  AR is a great place for you!  Agree wholeheartedly that more needs to be shared for newbies, and a reminder for old timers, about disclosure.  Since that's the class I teach I could write volumes on what I don't see disclosed for green features, but that's a story for another day!

I do not know who is on the NAR Board any longer. We did have many members & they like to keep themselves hidden. They quickly get bashed with all their policy talk.

Thank you for the support Jan Green and hope we can get together again in the future! If anyone takes on listing a home, they better know everything about it and how it runs. One agent did not know what a sump pump was and told his clients it was something illegal...sheesh! His poor buyers...

Wow!  It's never a good idea to talk about details in a home when you don't know what you're talking about.  Better to say, "I'm not sure but I'll find out."  Then send them a link with info.  Yikes!

Getting bashed may be for their poor choices in what is being done with national dues Lyn Sims. Like someone mentioned in the Q & A section today, a website ran by Realtors that could potentially give other national sites some competition and benefit us.
