President’s Message

We enjoyed another successful meeting in Greenville, South Carolina last month.  We had over 90 in attendance with over 200 packages in the book, and the creativity of the group was flowing! We learned the immediate area is booming, with an MSA over 880,000, jobs continue moving to the area, pushing unemployment from a high over 10% in 2010 to a current level of 3.3%, and, most importantly, we now know there is a state law requiring motorized vehicles to stop prior to an intersection and discharge a firearm to alert any oncoming horses! The meeting format was fast-paced. The most motivated, and the Zander Board session received multiple compliments—special thanks to everyone who helped with the presentations.

We appreciate our national sponsors for all they do to make each meeting unique and special. Many thanks to Robert Charland, Exchange Authority, for presenting the 1031 class as our Sunday education, and to Angela Greiner, from Secured Title.  She is a benefit to our group with her extensive knowledge and willingness to help.  Meeting sponsors for Greenville included Aline Capital, ENERG3, RISCO, National Development Corporation, and Thompson Financial.    Brian Bailey from the Federal Reserve provided an extremely informative presentation, and the discussion was priceless.

The next regular marketing meeting will be Detroit in September.  Steve Eustis is working hard to finalize a Sunday tour of the old, new, and converted projects via a tour bus and private guide service—details to follow soon. Please watch for video links to be added to the website.  Tuesday night in Detroit, we will conduct a Cowboy Auction, so consider packing some personal property you would like to exchange for something else; this event will be open to spouses/friends as well.  Make your plans early for Detroit—it will be a terrific meeting with a lot of opportunity.

Enjoy your summer.
