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!

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/

We want remind everyone as many of you are planning to travel, that many states are enforcing “MOVE OVER “ laws.

When you see an emergency vehicle on the side of the road these laws require motorists to slow down and move into an adjacent lane if it is safe to do so. More and more states are now enforcing these laws on interstate highways.

Please remember that besides slowing down you must move a lane away from the emergency vehicle. Failure to do so could earn you a ticket and higher car insurance. The good news is that as more people are aware of this law it will help protect our first responders who risk their lives protecting the public.
