Inside this Issue – Spring 2014

Welcome to the spring 2014 issue of the S.E.C. Observer. In this issue, Wes Dingler, 2014 President of the Society, thinks S.E.C. Members know how to “build a new box,” and he explains why creativity generates and closes transactions.

Bill Stonaker, S.E.C., CCIM, presents part two in his series about why it is so important to “pick the right professionals.” Stephen R. England, S.E.C., ALC, asks whether we should “use or ignore” social media. John L. Tyler, S.E.C., tells the tale of “three little pigs” and the real estate lessons they learned. Gary Vandenberg, S.E.C., CCIM, provides us with an update of the S.E.C. Education Foundation courses and activities.

Charles E. Sutherland, S.E.C., is featured “In the Spotlight” category of this issue, and you will learn about his passion for helping others. In the “History Files,” Wally Walker, S.E.C., presents part one of “creative thinking and the exchange,” and the editors of the Real Estate News Observer questioned whether one should “present all offers” when they are preliminary proposals.
