Lucky me! I am currently in Banff attending the Banff Western Conference. Approximately 400 attendees from the 4 western provinces have gathered to network, learn and upgrade their skills. World renown speakers are in attendance and are offering their expertise in technology, communications, new requirements and upcoming legislation.
The mood seems to be quite optimistic for 2013. A focus on keeping the consumer informed and responding to the changing needs of that consumer was a talking point at one presentation. That means it is important for REALTORS® to keep refreshing their skills. The "Wealthy Barber", David Chilton, reminded us this morning that ,although it is very easy to complain and become impatient over quite meaningless things, we are living in an amazing time. Technology and medical Improvements have made us live longer and enjoy more than our parents ever imagined. I'm going to try to remember that every day!
