Quick Notes
Joan Kuptz has left the Country. 
Please direct any concerns to me and hopefully some action will take place.

How was your last 7 days?  I have been served as broker 2 lawsuits and a complaint from GLVAR with different agents as defendants.  Thanks for spreading the challenges around.  Who knew being Broker would be this much fun?

Office Meeting! 
Office meeting will be coming this month.  Look for 3rd week of this month on Wednesday.  Location to be announced.

Invest in Yourself
A critical factor in an agents’ success will be the investor buyer for the coming few years”-Dave Liniger.  Dave said this on stage this week and I have the best place to sharpen your skills from the founder of CDPE.  The new CIAS designation is rolling out in October (I will be attending – come with me!)  Email me for information

Agent Reboot.  (Was going to be here but now have a CRS luncheon to run)   One day event will be here on September 15.  This is an action packed day full of technology, social media, marketing and mobility for the real estate agent.  One day only!  Click here for information.

CDPE Returns! 
Remember about the REO companies now setting themselves to be short sale servicers?  They will require CDPE designations or private training by the servicers themselves.  Alex Charfen said last week they are working on 5 more relationships like the one with LPS for agent qualifying for these networks.  End of September here in Las Vegas is another Live! Event.  Go here to register and get the $200 discount  Tom Rucci is registered and Jim Eggers too!�

Company News
We welcome 2 new agents to the company.  Pattie Orr comes to the Anthem office to work with Iris Fields.  Some of you may remember Pattie from selling Sun City Anthem for the builder for many years.  John Pope starts his new real estate career after spending lots of time in the heavy equipment / construction operation field.  He will be working on his own and looking to help out anywhere.  Please help them be the success you are.

Congrats to Diane Hawley as well for obtaining her property management cert in addition to her real estate license.  Diane was a former Property Manager assistant in the Summerlin office.

As an aside, RE/MAX Advantage is actively recruiting strong agents.  We have lots of space in the Summerlin office and a few opportunities in the Anthem office.  If you love us, help us please.  Look here to see some really cool new videos from RE/MAX for agent recruiting.
