Real Estate Conference

by Sam Miller

Top real estate agents around the world regularly turn to one man when they want to grow their real estate business and that man is Howard Brinton.  I have had the privilege of learning from Howard and his Star Power Network for nearly 20 years.  There hasn't been anyone or anything that has had more positive impact on my real estate career than Howard Brinton and his group of Stars.  

During the past couple of years I have witnessed many real estate professionals who have left the real estate industry because they didn't know how to adapt to the changes that were taking place in the economy.  During that same time my personal real estate business has remained strong and I continue to lead our Knox County Ohio real estate market for the 18th consecutive year.  I attribute my continued success to what I learn each year at the Annual Star Power Conference.  If you want to not only survive but thrive in this changing market you need to attend this years annual conference on July 29th through August 1st in Denver, Colorado.  

The Star Power Annual Conference is much more than a traditional real estate seminar. It goes beyond the typical high energy seminar experience because it offers top level breakout sessions on dozens of current topics which will help you overcome daily obstacles and challenges found during a normal day of selling real estate.  This year there will also be special round table and panel discussions relating to dealing with foreclosures, short sales and working with financially challenged clients and their lenders.  There has never been a better time to learn this information and to talk with other successful agents who are succeeding in this market.  

One of my main goals when I attend the Star Power Annual Conference is to talk with top real estate agents who are selling more homes than I am and find out what they are doing differently than I am.  Attending a Star Power Conference is a lot like winning a back stage pass and gaining access to some of the brightest minds in real estate.  I have already registered for the conference and I hope to see you in Denver.  For more details about Howard Brinton and Star Power visit GoStarPower and for conference details visit Star Power Annual Conference. 

Google Search Using Your Cell Phone and Text Messaging

by Sam Miller

Have you ever needed a quick phone number and didn't want to take the time to boot up your computer and search Google and you wanted to avoid the high charge for directory assistance or 411 connect?   Have you ever wanted the phone numbers for the local movie theatres or pizza places near you and you don't have anything to write the numbers down on?  There is a quick and easy way to get the information you want within 60 seconds and most of you can get the information quick and cheap with your cell phone and your text message feature. 

Send a text message to this number:  466453 (I know this is a partial number but trust me it will work).  Now type in what you are searching for and for your example use the following as a test:  Plumber 43050 (of you can type in Plumber XXXX (enter your zip code where my x's are)  Now simply press send and sit tight and within 60 seconds you will get a text message with the information.  This works for client names, addresses and phone numbers and it works for just about anything you are searching.  If you want another good test why not search your name or your spouses name and your zip code?  If you have a spare moment send a text to 466453 and enter Sam Miller Realtor, Mount Vernon, Ohio 43050 and see what comes up.

There are so many potential uses for this service and once you play with it a bit you will quickly see the many possibilities.  Your family will love it, your past clients will love it, your team will love it, I have a feeling that pretty much anyone with a cell phone will find a use for it at some point.  The key to remember is that if you do not have a text messaging account you will get charged a non contract text message rate.  For those of us with text messages contracts and especially those of us who have unlimited text messaging this is a feature that we will be using on a very regular basis.  Google has done it again and the speed of this service is amazing.
