So now I am ready to work my little fingers to the bone over the next few weeks before Christmas. It takes a lot to prepare for the year end, not only in the office, but for all of our Investor's properties. With the help of my broker, Paul, we are in the process of creating our 2007 business plan and budgets. Our theme is "Focus" because we are finding the best place to put our focus into. Of all the great things we have planned, I can only share this: it is going to be an awesome year in 2007.

Almost 20,000 REALTORS attended the annual National Association of REALTORS (NAR) convention and expo in New Orleans the weekend of November 9-13, 2006. Paul, Jay and myself attended this event and here is the video of a few of the things that we got accomplished while we were there. For more information visit the (417) Dwellings blog or our company site.

Today was such a busy day. I attended so many classes on everything from marketing to running a better business. It seems like attendance is way down at the convention this year. Here are a few pictures. The guy in the one picture is Allan Dalton who is the founder of www.realtor.com, the biggest web site in real estate.

Jay and I survived the bumpy ride to Houston and now we're layed-over here for the next 1 and 1/2 hours.
I am looking forward to convention this year. It not only motivates me to streamline things in the office, but it also helps me see areas where we can improve and where we have improved. All of us from the office are bringing our cameras and we are going to document this convention with pictures and videos. And then, my plan is to blog about it each and every day.
So, here it is, Thursday 11:49am and Jay and I are driving to Tulsa, to catch our 3:55pm flight to New Orleans. I have taken a picture of Jay driving, the I-44 road we are traveling on and a picture of my laptop in my lap as I blog about this trip. (Good thing Jay is driving!) It's never a dull time with Jay, so I'll keep you posted, especially if he does/says something erratic. Hey, that's just Jay. :)
