October 20, 2016

 Martin's West.


GBBR Realtor Fair





Enjoyed being able to see a lot of Baltimore professionals and took two 3 hour CE  classes.  One on Broker Supervision, given by the MREC and Kathie Connelly. The other class was on Agency.

Both were well  attended and well presented.

Met my friend and ActiveRain member Cheryl Ritchie in the Agency Residential class.

Excellent instructor, Bob Flynn, who  made the three hour session go quickly while holding the  audience's attention.


Walked the exhibits a few times, met many colleagues and professionals.  Luckily, my phone kept me in touch with clients, appointments, settlements and scheduling. 


GBBR Realtor® Fair is an event I attend each year.
