Mentor a Newbie

So this year as I am attending my sixth REALTORS® Conference & Expo, I feel comfortable enough to take on a new role of mentoring a lady attending her first REALTORS® Conference. Once I found out that she would be attending the conference for the first time, I invited her to coffee at Starbucks to help her plan her schedule and make sure that she had the must attend events at the conference on her agenda.

We sat down on a Tuesday afternoon and started with a blank schedule, found out what she was interested in, and plugged the holes in her calendar. There is so much that goes on, and honestly it wasn’t until my third conference that I had a grasp of all that there was that goes on even before the kick-off. The CRS, the ABR, the WCR, and so much more that I didn’t even understand.

We got her enrolled in the CRS Elite Class so she could achieve her CRS Designation, scheduled classes to help leverage her business, talked about RPAC After Dark and other RPAC events, and after all was said and done I managed to pick her up as a new major investor for Oklahoma. That was not why I scheduled our coffee, but it was a win win for everyone. So to all my seasoned attendees, it’s not to late to find a newbie ans mentor them at the first #NARAnnual

  1. Axay, I feel we have a duty to mentor others once we have learned about certain areas of our business and I can’t think of something better than helping someone get the most out of the NAR conference. Good for you, that’s a nice way to give back.
