I recently attended the Annual Conference for the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World.  Leading RE, as it is informally known as, is the largest network of Independent Real Estate Companies in the World.  It consists of over 500 Companies, with 4,000 offices and roughly 120,000 agents in 40 different countries.

About 2,500 members from 20 different countries descended on the Wynn and Encore Resorts in Las Vegas for the Annual Conference.  It featured 140 member panelists and 40 guest speakers including Stephan Swanepoel, author of the annual Swanepoel Trends Report, and Matthew Ferrara  of Matthew Ferrara and Co. a leading industry Trainer, Speaker and Writer.

Daniel Pink, who has authored 5 books about taking a fresh new look at selling, delivered the Opening Session Keynote Address to a packed house, and gave some great tips into the changing environment of Sales.

In addition to the Annual Conference, there were 4 Pre-Conference Events.  MarTech for Marketing and Technology Professionals, Sales Manager Summit for Real Estate Sales Managers, Performance Summit for Sales Accociates, and Luxury Portfolio Summit for Luxury Sales Associates and Staff.

I was really looking forward to attending this year, as I had not attended the Conference in the last couple of years, and I was not disappointed!  The Sessions and Keynotes were informative and fun, and I took a lot away from each of them that I attended.  But perhaps my favorite part is connecting with the attendees and speakers.  Whether it was new connections, or old friends from previous Conferences, it was great to connect with people from all over the country, as well as all over the world.

The Van Dyk Group has been part of this network for close to 30 years, and we could not be happier that we are a part of it.  In being able to recommend top agents from across the country and around the world, we can help you, family members, or friends who are moving or relocating from the area.  We can provide a list of top agents in whatever area you are looking to move to.

Just let your Van Dyk Agent know that you are moving out of the area, and we will help you find a top agent that will fit your needs in the area you are looking to move.

It really is that simple!

Avoid Summer Rental Scams – Van Dyk helps 7 on Your Side

Our very own Dave Wyrsch Jr talks with 7 on Your Side’s on tips to avoid Rental scams on the internet.

It is prime season for criminals taking advantage of summer renters searching the internet for great vacation deals so watch the “Top 7 Tips to Avoid a Summer Rental Rip-off” by Nina Pineda – http://7online.com/realestate/top-7-tips-to-avoid-a-summer-rental-rip-off/761038/

Customer Appreciation Day is Back Starting This Weekend

Photo-Jun-30-12-43-31-PM-300x224This Saturday, June 28th, we will continue our tradition of Customer Appreciation Day.  Each Saturday, during the rental changeover, we set up a tent out in our parking lot, offering complimentary refreshments including water, soda and snacks for our customers.

We started this tradition about 5 years ago, and it consisted of one Saturday in the summer.  We had the tent set up, music playing, and refreshments including hot dogs, soda/water, and snacks.  Because it was such a success, the following year we decided to do this each Saturday of the summer.  We kept up with serving refreshments and snacks, except the hot dogs, and of course it is all complimentary.

Saturday’s here on LBI are usually very busy.  It is the traditional changeover day, when renters for the previous week check-out, and those renting for the upcoming week arrive.  For those arriving, usually they are traveling at least 2 hours, if not more, to get down to LBI.  As check-in does not begin until 2pm, many arrive early, hoping to avoid the notorious traffic headed south on the Garden State Parkway and on Route 72 heading over to the Island. Since many cannot go to their rental unit right away, and have been in the car for many hours in some cases, we thought it would be nice to offer some refreshments while they wait to check-in.  We have everything set up early enough so that those leaving may also grab a snack or a drink before their long ride home.

This is just a small token our appreciation to our renters, for using us to help them with their summer vacation on Long Beach Island.  It is our way of saying thank you.  Of course we welcome anyone, whether they have rented with us or not, to stop by for a refreshment.  Whether you are riding bikes, taking a walk, or on your way to the beach, anyone is welcome to come by and grab a complimentary snack and/or refreshment.

Look for the tent in our parking lot starting this Saturday, and continuing every Saturday until Labor Day.  If you are in the area, feel free to stop by and grab a snack or drink.

See you this Summer!

Avoid Jersey Shore Vacation Rental Scams

NBC 10 recently did an article on how Scam Artists are now using Craigslist and other free anonymous outlets to post Fake Rental ads in order to try and get potential vacationers to wire money in advance. Please see the link below of the article interviewing Van Dyk’s own Marlene Romanowski and the Long Beach Twp Police Department on what to look for and how to avoid being scammed. http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Scam-Artists-Post-Fake-Ads-for-Summer-Homes-at-the-Shore-258209301.html
