REALTOR® Rally 2016 – It’s A Wrap!

November 11th — Wow. Awesomeness. We have a true love of what we do here at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® and the passion to share it with one another; but more importantly with everyone who has a place to call home.

REALTOR® Rally is a culmination of strategic planning and the desire to create an immersive learning experience. Classes taught by our valued partners, Sales Agents and Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC., guests were the hub of what made this event such a success. A framework of vendors brought their “A” game to share services, tools and ideas to equip attendees with a kickstart of business for 2017.

It is really tough to formulate into words what an experience this was for all of us. Rather than describe each class, amount of attendees and the usual stats, we wanted to share the photos. Our team of photographers were on hand to capture as many moments as we could. BUT, some of these photos were taken by our agents, employees and guests who shared their experiences on social media.

Thank you to everyone who attended. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we’re already planning for next level awesomeness experience.

Enjoy these inside the event glimpses:

A very special announcement was made, one that immortalizes Herbert Harper, D’Ann’s late husband of almost 45 years. There is nothing more important in the CBHarper culture, than family. So to both honor and celebrate that family D’Ann and Leesa have put together a scholarship fund in Herbert Harper’s name available only to the employees, agents and their children. More on this to come…

A Conversation with Craig and Libby Ross

Marketing and the Value Added Services CBHarper Provides to their Sales Associates.

CRoss_361199Our next testimonial for the series is with Craig and Libby Ross. Libby joined CBHarper first about 5 years ago after being a buyers agent, and Craig joined about 2 and a half year ago after spending 20+ years in the mortgage industry.

When asked why they chose CBHarper, Libby said she kept questioning why she was always losing listings to seasoned CBHarper Agents, so she had to see what CBHarper offered. Craig said he was watching Libby and the kind of success she had and knew by joining it was going to be the ultimate dove tail by taking his experience and her knowledge and professionalism and building upon what CBHarper already had available for their Sales Associates.

Thank you so much Craig and Libby for sharing with us and we hope you continue to grow your business in 2014! To check out the complete video, click HERE or on the photo below:Screen Shot 2014-04-08 at 4.49.02 PM
