November Triple Crown

triple-crown-november-2016Congratulations to the 15 agents that earned the November Triple Crown Award.

This award is given to agents who completed one closing, one listing and one affiliate transaction in the month of November.


December Schedule


  • The Christmas Party should now be on your calendar for December 15th at San Marino Club. Donations from vendors still being accepted. Sign-up sheet in the Agent Computer area. Please pay Andrea for guests at $30.00 each with payment to Real Estate One by Friday, December 9th.
  • A hearty thank you for the donations for the Coats for The Cold. These items mean a great deal for those unfortunate souls less fortunate than us.
  • We have put together a “Winter Survival” course entitled “I Will Survive” which we ran about 5 years ago. Anyone is invited to attend and we have integrated elements of a number of training systems (Ninja, Tenza, Woodruff, etc.) in order to help you write some business during the winter as well as get ready for the Spring. For those who are interested it will be a fun and interactive course that will require activities to be completed and an accountability model will be followed. Actual phone calls, business planning, scripts, prospecting, and building a listing and buyer presentation kit will be included. The class dates are December 13, 20, 27 January 10, 17, 24, and 31st. These seven weeks will help prepare you for success in 2017. Our initial kick off is December 13th and classes are from 10:30-12 noon.

Drum roll, please!
