The Gold Comes out at the International Convention in Orlando, Florida

A day that starts with a handshake from Irish Tenor Ronan Tynan, ends with hugs from The Pointer Sisters and has a photo with CENTURY 21 President and CEO Tom Kunz thrown in the middle can only happen in one place: The Power of Gold conference in Orlando, Florida. Personal production was honored yesterday. Obviously not everyone was listening to the media about the state of the American market. While general perception would indicate that this was the 5th worst year in real estate in The United States, it was actually the 5th best year ever for business, according to Richard A. Smith, President and CEO of Reology, CENTURY 21's parent company. There was no shortage of gold yesterday as the Centurion Awards were handed out recognizing the top producers from around the world. It was beyond exciting to walk across the stage with the Canadian Centurion Award winners as televison host Bob Eubanks introduced us. Canada led the parade of international award winners. Waving flags and cheering wildly, we walked as slowly as possible to enjoy our moment in the spotlight. Earlier Ronan Tynan sang and spoke about his life at General Session. His voice and story were as powerful as his handshake when I met him at his CD signing table afterwards. He reminded us that the luck of the Irish doesn't always have to be reserved for the Irish and said the biggest risk in life is not taking risk at all. Before the Centurion Gala, The Pointer Sisters sang old favorites which included hits such as "Jump (for My Love),"  "I'm So Excited,"  "Slow Hand," and "Neutron Dance" to our golden screaming assembly, and came down to talk to everyone near the stage stopping for photos and hugs along the way. We were so excited. What a day!
