Just returned from lovely Burbank CA for the Bridge asn conference:
WOW, we had such a great time. Big thank you to the staff at Bridge for hosting such a great event for the agents.
I felt this was very important event, so I asked if I could bring team member also, it is so hard to break away we always have to have back up for the business at home; I am glad we took advantage of both attending this event.
This conference was more like a learning and team building retreat. It was a lot of work to get there, and a lot stuff to learn about, but well worth the effort. And we had fun too, lots of socailizing and networking too.
I met so many people I had only before known 'online' so great to meet everyone in REAL LIFE! It was a bit overwhelming at times, even though we were a small group, I was struggling to remember all the names. I hope that we made many new friendships that will last a long time. And it was great to see a few familiar faces again too.
I did take some video of the Bridge event, depending on how it turns out I will try to post it here on REOPRO. If anyone out there has tips for video in our industry let me know, I am trying to learn the best ways to use video to increase sales and reach more customer, maximize returns etc. I also got a couple fun pictures at Bob Hope airport as we were on our way out of town, I will post those soon.
It is so great to see all of the positive posts on threads about Bridge in the past few days form everyone who attended. I hope this will be the first of a few events of this type. Possibly more invitation only events in future years with Bridge asn?? And, I honestly hope that other companies will look at this company as one to emulate a model for new ways to do things in our industry of default management and sales of REO and related investor / distress properties.
