Florida CRB Chapter President’s Update – August 2014

It was wonderful seeing so many CRB’s at the August 2014 Florida Realtor’s® Convention and Expo.

Florida CRB Chapter Course “Sales Leadership that Drives Performance” with Steven David

Florida CRB Chapter Course “Sales Leadership that Drives Performance” with Steven David

The course we offered, “Sales Leadership that Drives Performance” with Steven David, was a big success with 33 students participating.

No less than five of them completed their CRB designation requirements with this course. Nancy Macaluso, our Education Chairman, and Andre Boutte, our Treasurer, did a fantastic job organizing and maintaining the requirements for the course.

Florida CRB Chapter members Honoara and Ric Giumenta were just a few who had their picture taken in front of the colorful Chapter booth.

Our booth at the Expo was a hit too, with many people stopping for a photo in front of our colorful “Rio Carnivale” display.

We had the opportunity to meet CRB’s who didn’t know about our Florida Chapter and to speak with brokers, managers and team leaders who didn’t know about CRB.

Thanks to Andre Boutte and Israel Ameijeiras, responsible for putting together the 'Rio Carnivale' booth and pictured here with Florida CRB Chapter President Elizabeth Ruvo.

Many thanks to Israel Ameijeiras and Andre Boutte who put the whole thing together and toted and stored all our brochures and flyers.

We had a busy Thursday starting off the day with a tasty breakfast and great networking with the Florida CRS Chapter.
