Local and national sponsors should be considered for funding to offset the cost of the presentations. Promotion material can list sponsors, sponsors can attend the presentations and have a table and also 5 minutes to speak before each session. Dick will build a slide show with sponsor information which will be shown before and after sessions and during breaks.
Sponsors both Local and National
100% of the funds pledged by a sponsor goes directly to lowering the cost to the host. Dick's published prices are listed on "Terms and Pricing" tab and will be adjusted to reflect any amount given by a sponsor.
It's time everybody from the agent to the broker to the franchise to the association and MLS to the many vendors that support the real estate industry to realize what is happening. As of January 2nd, 2019 the National Association of REALTORS® list 1,359,849 REALTOR® members. That number does not reflect the thousands of "Sales Reps" working in the industry.
No matter what role you play in today's real estate world the thought of outside forces and companies moving into our space should be a major concern. The signs are there for companies to buy and sell homes directly to consumers. You are interested in moving, no problem we will send one of our employees out to meet with you, oh you own a home no problem we will buy it putting cash in your pocket today! Moving to a new city, here is our current inventory of company owned homes we have available.
What we can do together
So many associations, MLSs and vendors depend on number of agents working in the industry. We have built our buildings, hired our staff and invested in technology to serve the current number of agents. What happens if the above scenario starts happening? Let's say these outside forces start in major markets, maybe a 10% drop in agents, 20% or more. As a vendor all of a sudden you have lost potential customers, associations and MLSs remember 2008 to 2012 and total REALTORS® dropped under a million? I was in many associations and MLSs during those times and heard the concerns and fears. Vendors were feeling the pain as those still in the industry became very aware of every dollar spent and started discontinuing services.
It's time actually past time to fire up each and every agent in this country to take ownership of their small piece of the world! Become the go to, find ways to expand your base, show locally just how valuable you are and convince people you are the solution to all their real estate needs!
We can do this but need to start today! Call me!
