Mark Your Calendars for November Events

It’s only four months until our big events in November! Have you made your plans yet? If not, here’s a quick overview.

Sticking with last year’s Disney location, the 2012 REALTORS Conference & Expo is in Orlando from Nov. 9-12. We’ll have the same booth, too. If you’re planning to attend the conference, please stop by to see us (and we’d love to have you help out) at booth 619.

Note: Early bird registration ends Aug. 15, so look at your budget and see if you can fit NAR into it.

Realtors Conference & Expo, Orlando
This year's Realtors Conference & Expo is in Orlando. Make plans to join us!

Like last year, the Success Summit will immediately follow NAR, but it will last just 1.5 days, from midday Nov. 12 through the evening of Nov. 13. We’ll be sharing and communing, learning from a few special guests and, more than likely, focusing on marketing. Our host hotel is Clarion Inn & Suites at International Drive. Call 407-351-5100 and mention Help-U-Sell Real Estate to get our special rate of $92/night, including breakfast.

We hope to see you all this fall!

Help-U-Sell Real Estate Success Summit Agenda

It’s still three months away, but we’re already finalizing the agenda for our Success Summit. The theme will be “Taking Charge of Change.”

Held at the Hotel Menage in Anaheim from November 14-16, the summit will be free for Help-U-Sell Brokers. The exact schedule (and a few surprises) has yet to be ironed out. To give you more of an idea of what to expect, here are the topics we have planned to discuss.

  • Help-U-Sell Real Estate’s strategic plan for 2012
  • The state of the industry and emerging opportunities
  • The Automated Agent: Practical uses of technology in everyday business
  • Creative financing and deal-doing in today’s market

We’ll also have two star-studded panels and we’ll unveil a new technology feature. We hope you can join us for our educational and camaraderie-filled three days. (The summit will begin at 2 p.m. on Nov. 14 and end at noon Nov. 16.)

If you can, we encourage you to attend at least one day of the REALTORS Conference & Expo beforehand. Those dates are November 10-14. We will have a booth (#519), and the continuing education courses are worth the visit. The early bird deadline is August 15, so register within the next week if you haven’t already. Also, let Lori Warnelo know when you’ve registered. Her email is

Help-U-Sell Success Summit

As many of you have already heard, we’re hosting the 2011 Help-U-Sell Success Summit from November 14-16, immediately following the NAR Annual Convention. The summit will be held at the Hotel Menage in Anaheim, Calif. You can find the details about the hotel and booking a room on our Set Fee Blog. The room rate is a great deal, and the summit itself is free.

As for the summit’s content, we thank all of you who contributed your ideas via our recent survey. The top two topics were:

  • Technology
  • Creative Financing

We also received a lot of write-in topics as a result of the survey. In order to accommodate as many of these as possible, we plan to hold many roundtable-type discussions simultaneously. Participants will be able to hop from one table to the next and soak up as much knowledge (and impart as much knowledge) as they can.

We hope you can join us in November!
