NAGLREP Convention in Palm Springs

I’d like to share with you my experience at the Gay Realtor convention – NAGLREP in Palm Springs. As a realtor, I was proud to be representing Fort Lauderdale and Wilton Manors.

In October, I had the opportunity to attend the 2017 National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals convention. This years convention was held in Palm Springs, California. As always, it was a wonderful event for networking and meeting some of the most successful gay realtors from around the country. It was a reunion with old friends I met in past years and new friends, all in the real estate profession. It was the perfect opportunity, as a gay realtor to build my referral network with other realtors all across America. I was joined with a few fellow realtors for my home office of Re/Max Experience in Wilton Manors as well some familiar faces from Fort Lauderdale and Wilton Manors.

The Nuts and Bolts of the Convention
With his humor, comedian Alex Mapa emceed the NAGLREP convention, making it a huge success.

During the days, we attended lectures and learned about the latest technology available for today’s realtor. There were breakout sessions on lead generation and social media, home buying trends and information on marketing to the gay community. We listened to tips for selling homes and condos to the luxury buyer and talked about building our database. We were educated on diversity and learned the secrets of top producing real estate agents. From marketing professionals to mortgage lenders, from real estate coaches and agents that are larger than life, they were all there. The event ended with a keynote speech made by Human Rights Activist Clive Jones.

Million Dollar Listing
In this time of reality TV shows, I’m sure at least once, while flipping through you television stations, you landed on Bravo’s, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. I had the fortunate opportunity to spend some time and speak one on one with Madison Hildebrand. Madison is know for specializing in the luxury real estate market in Malibu and co-stared in the television series with Josh Flagg and Josh Altman.

With this being my first trip to Palm Springs I have to say, I fell in love with the desert air and mountains. This is quite different than Fort Lauderdale and Wilton Manors with our ocean and beachfront condos. I certainly enjoyed the change but most of all I enjoyed the Post Modern Architecture that the city has to offer. I can’t wait for the 2018 National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals which will be in Palm Spring again.

Electronic Lockboxes Have Their Benefits – Paul Slutsky, Fort Lauderdale Realtor

 

supra report from box

• Electronic lockboxes are used by real estate agents:

Electronic lockboxes certainly have many benefits for real estate agents. I feel it’s important to show a property myself. Next to you, I should knows the ins and outs of your home the best.  However, sometimes it is just impossible to be able to attend every single showing. For these times, I use an electronic lockbox or as it is called, the iBox. iBox is a sophisticated key holder where your door key is placed and accessed by other realtors.

• Sophisticated level of security
Unlike the old combination lockbox, iBox has a very sophisticated level of security. Each licensed realtor is assigned their  very own “key fob” to open an iBox. The Greater Fort Lauderdale Board of Realtors assigns the fob. Each time a realtor uses his own fob to enter an iBoxes an email is immediately sent. This email alerts me that someone has entered the home.  The email contains detailed information. This information includes the date and time of the entry, name of the realtor, his/her phone number and email. A secure database online then maintains all of this information for future use.

The information has many benefits to me and you. If something was missing from your property, I would know who had accessed it last. With this knowledge I can then know who last entered the home.

As a homeowner you are going to ask me how many showings your property has had. Have their been repeat showing you may ask me.  I can then pull a report and tell you the number of showing which occurred along with the date and time.

iBox also gives valuable information to enable me to follow up with the other real estate agents to get feedback as to what their client felt about your home.

As a realtor, I find iBox invaluable. Never will you find one of those old rusty combination locks on any of the properties that I list. It’s just too easy to gain access to your home with a combination lockbox.

This is how I have gain the reputation that I have worked so hard for. I think of my clients and never compromising your safety or mine. I am always looking for the toward the latest technology to put me ahead of the average realtor.

Here’s What People Are Saying About Paul Slutsky, Real Estate Agent

The Search for a Real Estate Agent:

When I was looking for a real estate agent I contacted Paul Slutsky by email while still living up north. He replied promptly and arranged for us to have a phone discussion. During this time he described the real estate market in the Fort Lauderdale area and inquired about my housing needs and preferences. He also took the time to describe his approach as a real estate agent.  I was able to decide if I thought we would work well together during my search. Before I traveled to Florida to condo hunt, Paul scheduled appointments for a variety of places. All of these met my non-negotiable (e.g., two-bedroom) and were in my price range or just slightly higher.

Our First meeting:

During the first morning of viewing condos, Paul spent a great deal of our time (in the car and in the condos) getting to know me beyond my condo preferences. Paul made great suggestions that helped me focus on what was most important to me – city/town/neighborhoods and lifestyle. We found a great place and now that I am living in it, I can say it actually exceeds my expectations. Paul is a smart, warm and polite realtor with a keen sense of people. (I am a psychologist so I don’t use that phrase lightly). Paul is honest and diplomatically straight-forward, which is refreshing. I really felt that his goal was to help me find a home that I would be happy living in for many years to come. And, I believe that goal was not only met but exceeded. Thanks, Paul.

Edward Spauster,
