July was an outstanding month where I was able to share a couple of things with the Thursday morning Breakfast Meeting and Facebook Live Crew that I’m very passionate about. On July 13th my guest speaker was Christy Bethel of One Legacy. This is the amazing organization that helped setup the kidney transplant for our own Jacob Rayner. This amazing young man continues to thrive and live an amazing life and his father Bunker Rayner did a great job telling the story of the journey they have been on since Jacob’s birth. It’s all about the Pink Dot on your driver’s license, for more information and to signup please go to www.donateLIFEcalifornia.org/PassItOn
The next thing I am very excited to share with you is I am working with SureFire CPR who was my guest speaker on July 20th to setup a class at TIGAR for our members at a reduced cost. The class is 3 hours and with a large group cost can be as low as $44 per person. Please Click Here for More Details . Let’s get trained on this, we owe it to our loved ones and community to be able to act should a need arise. If you are interested please click here and join our interest list and we will contact you when a class is scheduled.
If you missed the great information at these meetings go to TIGAR’s Facebook page and watch them. Have a great rest of your summer and I’ll talk to you soon!

Summer 2017 has been hot and will probably continue to sizzle for a few more weeks. I am not just talking about the barometer; I am talking about our local real estate market. Buyers demand continue to increase due to low inventories and historically low mortgage interest rates. Our local market is HOT and is setting records throughout Inland Empire.
August is the time of the month when many are preparing for the start of a new school year. Why not make a commitment to yourself and seek to increase your education and knowledge. What better way to represent your clients when you have that extra edge and knowledge to negotiate on their behalf. Education has a direct correlation to one’s business success. TIGAR offers many educational classes and networking events. Click on www.TIGAR.org to view the schedules. CAR offers webinar and live classes. Many of these classes offer credit and certification after completion. Do you need to brush up on your negotiation skills? How about the new RPA? How familiar are you with the new changes to the contract? How about selecting a new niche and become an agent that specializes in military, senior citizen or investors? I personally intend to take advance of the new disclosure class offered through our board and CAR. To check on these and other available classes, click on http://www.car.org/education/calendar.
Don’t get burned this Summer, educate yourself and protect your client’s interests.
