Thank You! A big thanks to all of the Realtors who attended yesterday's Realtor Summit Training Lunch n' Learn!

We had such good comments from yesterday's Realtor Summit Training that we'd like to share a few.  When asked how to describe these Summits to someone who hasn't been to one, attendees wrote:

"We all have 24 hrs and have busy lives, but spending an hour of your time in one of these sessions is the best investment of your time you can make. Packed with up to date and very useful information."

"Lots of great, timely information, things I can use to help my clients and to help me in business."

"Timely and pertinent information from an expert in his field, Ken's 'Realtor Summit Training' is an invaluable asset to your real estate career."

"The best/most information packed into one hour and free lunch too.  Don't miss the next class."

"Valuable info to give to and educate my buyers and sellers."

"If you go you will learn something.  Learning one thing is worth the hour of time!!! :)"

"These Summits are opportunities to become educated, refresh your knowledge and get rejuvenated."

Realtors, Apologize to your Sales Manager

Realtors, apologize to your Sales Manager, because Tuesday April 9th is a continuing education class on a topic that doesn't get nearly enough attention. (It is April, even though Ken says August). Learn how you and your professional community can best serve our veterans and active military.

Speakers include Louise Thaxton, one of the top 5 VA Mortgage Originators in the country; Terri Murphy, a 25 year Top Producing Agent, Speaker, Author and Consultant; and Sean Parnell, Army Ranger, combat infantryman and best selling author of 'Outlaw Platoon.'

The event is being held in Lancaster, PA April 9th, 2013. To register for a seat, go to: http://www.fairwaypa.com/realtors/ce.html

One Thing Every Realtor Should Know



Realtors, are you aware that when your buyers contact us and we pull credit, an inquiry is registered by the credit bureaus - who turn around and sell what's called a 'trigger lead.' This means the credit bureaus sell your clients' names, addresses, phone numbers and credit scores. Within 24 hours, your clients are being contacted by lenders across the country with offers that can sound pretty great until you take a harder look. We've heard of several lenders being sneaky in their approach, making it sound like they're working with us.

Please protect your clients! All 3 bureaus cooperate with http://www.optoutprescreen.com - basically a 'do not sell my info' list. This not only protects your clients from what could be a frustrating and/or expensive mortgage experience, but a potential opening for identity theft as well.
