This year’s annual company kickoff was a rousing success, with manager Sean Sullivan igniting the crowd with his performance of the YouTube sensation, the Evolution of Dance.
CEO Robert Reid went over this past year’s accomplishments and upcoming goals, and all loan officers were praised heavily for their success despite a challenging market.
The audience was given reviews of best practices, a panel with Realtors about communication, launching of new tools, organization and efficiency training by author Michael Linenberger, and a marketing update with the hard launch of social media.
One of the most exciting parts of the event was the speech given by keynote speakers, the owners of Think Big, Work Small. Funny, smart, and motivating, they discussed the power of blogging and business to business marketing.
Yearly awards were also given out to accomplished loan officers. The Top Performer winners are Tom Balk, Dimitri Timm, Christina Fernandez, Bob Casper, Alex Alexander, Stuart Davis, and Bob De Luzuriaga.
The President’s Club winners are Alan Russell, Arnie von Massenhausen, Bob Casper, Brent Blaustein, Camille DuPuis, Chad Hawker, Corey Wilson, Elizabeth Everitt, Melanie Dickman, Renee Morgan, Stefani Hartsell, and Sue Dirickson. The loan officer of the year awards went to Mike Ervin and Chad Hawker.
The overall message of the event rang true – our loan officers have adapted to changes and difficulties within the mortgage industry, and will continue to do so in 2011!
