Since 2011, I’ve been speaking at the Washington Realtors Association EdCon Event in Seattle, so presenting valuable information on the topics of internet marketing and video to Puget Sound Realtors is a part of my weekly schedule.
With so much continuing to change in our industry, it is important to not just stay on top of the changes, but to stay ahead.
As a Seattle area mortgage lender and successful internet marketer, I share industry related topics, marketing tools that are working, and offer clock hour courses that are designed to give you the “edge” through internet marketing and leveraging your social connections.
Right now, there are three HOT topics you as a successful real estate professional need to know:
(1) FHA Is Changing Forever (and I mean forever)
In March 2013, FHA will increase their monthly private mortgage insurance premiums once again. But more importantly, imposing permanent mortgage insurance requirements for the entire term of the loan (30-years). This is a game-changer in my opinion. I will explain how it will affect your clients, sellers and you as a real estate agent. I will also share – (1) How to get the message out to your clients, and (2) What is the alternative to this train-wreck. (Don’t worry, I have a plan…)
(2) USDA Is Changing Their Eligible Regions
In March, USDA is expected to eliminate the property eligibility boundaries in parts of Marysville, Arlington, Lake Stevens, and Anacortes (to name a few cities). This is another game-changer in my opinion, as those cities fund the majority of USDA loans in Snohomish County. Again, I will show you (1) How to get the message out to the public, and (2) Help explain a couple alternative options in dealing with these changes so that you do not lose business over this.

(3) Internet Marketing Is Moving Faster Than Ever
If you have not had a chance to establish your online footprint, you may be running out of time. The National Association of Realtors indicates that over 90% of home buyers and sellers are searching online for information and YOU NEED TO BE THERE! If you are not, you are missing out on business and more so, jeopardizing your future success as a real estate agent. As you already know, commerce is turning to the internet and you know you need to be there! So come on!!
I am going to show you exactly what I’ve done to build a successful career in mortgage lending in only 4 short years. The primary ingredient has been my ability to market and network online (plus, I have a ridiculously insane work ethic).
When You Attend One of My Classes, You’ll Leave Knowing:

(2) how to establish a youtube channel and blog platform so that you begin creating content

(4) how to get your message out to your social networks WITHOUT being annoying
