Unlock a door and you hear a “click”. “Click” on the wrong link or attachment on your electronic device and you have just opened the door to a hacker! Cybercriminals prey on human fears and desires to get us to open the door to our personal information. You don’t have to be “techy” to stop hackers! Protect yourself and your clients by learning how to better spot and prevent a possible attack.

Session Widgets Day 2 Commercial Class

In this crazy world that we live in, incorporating “self-care” into our everyday lives helps to protect the energy that we need to not only survive but to thrive!  Self-care goes a long way in managing stress and living your best life, which in turn, allows you to better help those you care about - your family, friends, and clients.

REALTORS® manage and juggle a heavy workload and often overlook their need for sleep, nutrition, mindfulness, and movement. Self-care feeds your spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional well-being. This session will leave you with achievable ways to revitalize, strengthen and renew YOU in 2021!

Session Widgets Day 2 Session 1

Build a scalable local brand that consistently attracts new business through video. Video is an incredibly affordable tool for growing your business, but it can feel complicated or even overwhelming. This step-by-step guide will demonstrate how to implement video marketing and communication into your business with minimal effort and a reasonable learning curve. Video is versatile and engaging, easy to share, and provides a huge return on your investment.

Session Widgets Day 2 Session 2

With a focus on risk-reduction and trends that affect brokerage operations, the Contracts and Forms Committee of St. Louis REALTORS® works diligently throughout the year to develop and revise the Association’s standard forms and contracts as deemed necessary based largely on legal and regulatory issues. This session will be an overview of the forms that were revised or created for our 2021 Forms Library.
