Xplode Conference. You’ve heard of it. Maybe you attended the first-ever Xplode Conference in Missouri, held last year in South County where 450 top Missouri REALTORS® got the latest tech, digital marketing and sales strategies to grow their business.
Well, the rumor is true. Xplode is coming back to St. Louis/St. Charles on Monday, Oct. 9, 2017! At a new location: Ameristar Casino Resort Spa.
Xplode has nothing to do with explosions. Xplode Conference is a jam-packed day of technology and digital marketing for the real estate professional. Presented Ted-talk style.
Xplode is not a cult. Come ready to learn, have fun … and absorb everything the national industry experts have to offer.
Xplode is not a big sales pitch. But it is like bringing a one-day Inman conference right to your backyard, at a fraction of the cost!

As part of the Unconscious Bias Series, the St. Louis REALTORS® Inclusion Advisory Group, in collaboration with Diversity Awareness Partnership (DAP), presents “Understanding Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation — Terminology, Community and Commerce.” Register below!
As our community continues to create more inclusion for people who identify as LGBTQ+, our organizations are having to adjust regarding recruitment, hiring and retention, as well as building client relationships and customer service. Sometimes our organizations struggle to quickly adapt to important changes that influence how they do business.
This lunchtime session will include a brief presentation from Kenneth Pruitt, a local expert on these issues, as well as a discussion on topics of sexual orientation and gender identity from panelists who will connect these topics to their personal and professional lives.
Event Details Date: August 25 Time: 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Where: University City Public Library, Auditorium | 6701 Delmar Blvd. | University City, MO 63130 Cost: FREE (lunch will be provided) Facilitator: Kenneth Pruitt

Reasons for Form Revisions
Line numbers were added for consistency with other forms
Names of Association/Boards removed due to increasing membership of Mid America Regional Information Systems (MARIS); the forms will always be up to date by not specifying certain counties.
Forms 2049 & 2119 – HUD instructions state: Whenever a seller or lessor has entered into a contract with an agent for the purpose of selling or leasing a unit of target housing, the regulations promulgated under this section shall require the agent, on behalf of the seller or lessor, to ensure with the requirements of this section. The forms were revised to add HUD verbiage so forms are more clear and concise.
New Forms Added & Purpose
Mechanic Lien Waiver – this form should be provided to the following:
The seller, at the time of listing, for completion by any contractors, subcontractors or suppliers who have recently performed work on the subject property.
To any vendors (including their subcontractors and/or suppliers) hired to complete necessary repairs on the subject property (i.e. during inspection negotiations).
To your preferred vendors (including their subcontractors and/or suppliers) who commonly handle repairs for your clients.
Notice of Intended Sale (NOIS) – if the subject property is newly constructed or rehabbed, then the underwriter will typically require this form. It is completed by the owner of the property and recorded in the county where the property is located. The intent is to provide notice that the owner is renovating the property for sale to a bona fide purchaser. It also reflects the closing date of the property.
For any questions regarding the current revisions and updates, please contact Tracey Yost, Contracts & Forms Liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org
