On Thursday September 25 I had the honor and pleasure to be on a panel of top producers at the KAR convention. Mike Parker hosted the class entitled "Secrets to Profitability in an Ever Changing Market". I was joined by fellow Realtors Guy Cagney and Jon Weeks. Guy services the West Side of Cincinnati and Jon services the North & East sides of Cincinnati.

The class covered a wide range of topics from internet marketing, farming, data base basics, expired listings, pricing, absorption rates, servicing past customers/clients and the role of women in the real estate decision making process just to mention a few.

It was a fun and informative class. I probably learned as much, if not more than the attendees. Many thanks to Mike Parker for the invitation and for presenting a great class!

I put together the following handout for the class:
