Local and regional real estate organizations throughout
the nation strive to provide services to their members.
Perhaps the most needed service that your Board of Realtors,
CCIM Chapter, RLI Chapter or Exchange Group can provide
to your members that will bring the highest return on
investment are education programs that go beyond that
required for continuing education credits in your respective
In January of 2004, two organizations I belong to,
the "Mile Hi Exchangors" and "Colorado
Creative Marketing Exchange" made a commitment
to upgrade the quality of our meetings and to provide
education programs to our members to help them expand
their horizons. We had several newer members coming
to the marketing sessions not knowing for sure why,
not having counseled the client, and not knowing what
to do with the information they had. They needed to
understand Equity Marketing, the fine art of Counseling
and the basic Creative Real Estate Formulas.
Since that decision was made, we have conducted 3 one-day
courses utilizing the services of instructors from the
Society of Exchange Counselors S.E.C. Education Foundation.
Chuck Sutherland presented his program on Creative Real
Estate Formulas, Bob Brougham taught his program on
Equity Marketing and I presented my course on Counseling.
