REALEMERGE: For those who missed the lunch & learn regarding www.RealEmerge.com, you missed a good one. The presentation by Frank Chimento was awesome and the rollout of the new real estate program using eMerge was fantastic. You can check it on www.RealEmerge.com. Most people go right to the pricing of products before they research exactly what it does. If you check this out and I hope you do, remember this one thought; if this program could product just one closed sale from its use, it would pay for itself for the next 2 or 3 years. The program is designed to almost run entirely on its own to keep in contact with those people for whom you have email addresses.
DID YOU KNOW YOU COULD ATTRACT THE FBI BY COPYING MONEY ON A COPY MACHINE? Here is what www.Answers.com says about this issue:
There is a special board to prevent counterfeiting. If you copy money in color at the exact size (no increase or decrease in size) this board will blow, then you have to call for a service tech to come out. When the tech tries to order this board, they have to notify the FBI. Then the FBI comes out to visit you with the tech. Only copy in Black and white and increase or decrease the size by at least 5 Percent!
FALL RETREAT: There is a huge turnout for this event and seating may not be available if you don’t sign up soon. Notify AMY if you plan to attend. The first today is FREE and NOLA Lending will be providing a bus for the first day only. It will return AFTER the evening reception so plan accordingly. Signup sheet for the bus is in the Resource Room.

COMING SOON! IGNITE YOUR BUSINESS; IGNITE YOUR CAREER; IGNITE YOUR PASSION. Keller Williams has retired the 4-4-3 training program and will launch IGNITE in late September. I have already listed the classes that will be taught in the Market Center during the Month of October. Watch for details as they are made available by KW. You know this will be good. Note: I have been in real estate for more than 32 years. Today I attended Bill Deshotels class on the HUD Statement and Closing Procedures and learned something; imagine that. You are never too old or too experienced to become better at what you do. Consider spending October becoming better at what you do; sign up for the IGNITE Classes when they become available. Better yet, consider teaching them. Check out the schedule on www.SlidellCalendar.com for OCTOBER.
