I’ve said it before: the biggest challenge we have as Help-U-Sell brokers is staying connected. We’re spread out all over the country and have only occasional opportunities to get together face-to-face. Plus, we work in a hostile environment – one where most of the real estate ‘professionals‘ around us wish we’d just dry up and blow away. That can grind on you after a while. It’s important to tune in every now and then just to keep your head screwed on right!
There are several ways to stay plugged into Help-U-Sell. The company Facebook and Twitter pages are good. So is our company newsletter, Help-U-Sell Connect, and this silly little blog (do you realize we’re approaching 300 posts here?). But nothing is better than our weekly webinars/teleconferences. Tech Tuesday – which will convene in just a few hours – is action packed with good information about how to build and manage your web presence and your technology in general. And Wonderful Wednesdays are . . . well . . . .
LISTEN: in the last six to eight months, the Wednesday Broker Roudtable Calls have been electric. Every week, great new information has been disseminated and the group has grown increasingly comfortable with sharing what they’re doing, what’s working and what’s not. It’s one hour a week to be reminded how powerful it is to be Help-U-Sell (remember: if you are a broke or agent in a Help-U-Sell office, you are Help-U-Sell).
Tomorrow’s call will be a little special in that we have a guest; two of them, actually. Patricia Boyd, who everyone fell in love with at the Success Summit, will be there talking all things finance, and she’s bringing Chris Jackson of TurnScor. TurnScor markets credit repair/improvement software to brokers who then can give it (for free) to as many people as they’d like. It’s a wonderful thing to add to your value package. I mean: what buyer wouldn’t benefit from a 5% increase in their FICO score? Even the one with great credit might qualify for a better loan thanks to the free program their Help-U-Sell broker gave them!
Best of all, TurnScor is running a special for the month of December: a 25% discount. AND Patricia is offering her two part Certified Real Finance Advocate training program free to everyone who takes advantage of TurnScor’s offer. It’s a ridiculously good deal. And it’s all about increasing your knowledge and the value you bring to a transaction. We have 11 days left in December. I think I’d set a goal to complete Patricia’s training and get certified by the end of the year and then give the TurnScor software to everyone on my CI list as a kind of Holiday gift. You know: start the new year with a better credit score, courtesy of Help-U-Sell.
You can learn more about TurnScor and the promotion on Patricia’s website: www.cRFApro.com.
Also on tomorrow’s call, we’ll update the results of the Winter Warm Up contest. Brokers are competing for points awarded for new listings, as well as closed buyer and seller sides. As of the end of November, Deb Schmidt from Minnesota is in the lead, followed closely by Richard Cricchio (Hawaii) and John Powell (Arizona). But the field is very tight and anyone could hop into the lead before the contest ends in February.
It will be our last Wednesday call of the year, so we’ll take a minute to look back at 2010 and forward to 2011. So think of it as your company Holiday Party; ok, that’s stretching it a little bit. Think of it as your weekly sales meeting and TUNE IN! If you haven’t signed up yet, do so now by clicking HERE.
