This past week Realtors from all across Arizona joined together in Prescott for the Winter Conferences. It was an opportunity to review the market and exchange ideas as to how to best serve the market and review the current strategies. From Foreclosure escrows to short sales the ideas were very informative and right on track to keep agents up to speed with change.
One of the best formats was the annual Certified Residential Specialist meeting. We discussed the best way to get word to Realtors that the best referral network is alive and well. CRS designation is one of the top referral networks in the business and has interstate connections matched by few other organizations.
On a more local level the state chapter of CRS has the benefits of its own. The website at http://www.arizonacrs.com, is connecting and networking our state members with each other for Arizona referrals. Our quarterly meetings in 2 different areas of the state, with premier speakers adds to our professionalism. Discounts on CRS courses, leadership training opportunities, involvement and in community charities are just a few more benefits to our local chapter.
The Phoenix Metro area has six meetings a year with many topics being discussed. Join us this month on the 20th for our round table discussion. We will have three tables of discussion and then rotate every twenty minute to exchange ideas. Bring your market suggestions and contribute.
