See Page for the Area Managers
Hosting Agent's Responsibilities:
Secure the Date with the Area Manager who has to approve the property. The Property Identification must be done at least 25 days prior to the breakfast to allow plenty of time for preparation. That is ONLY 7 days before the 1st eBlast goes out to give time for graphic designer and installation on website and preparation of eBlast. Dates not reserved with a property identified 21 Days prior to breakfast, will be available to any area.
Send $100 graphic design fee to LHNBC graphic designer specified below to secure his/her services. This fee has to be received by them AT LEAST 24 days PRIOR to breakfast for them to schedule their time to do your project.
Obtain Normal Listing Photos and Copy
Secure A Speaker who has a topic addressing an item of interest to luxury agents
Speaker must provide some Door Prize - Or Host will provide one.
Secure A Sponser to provide the breakfast food (remember - it's breakfast for the agents so make it more than rolls and coffee.) While not the only choice, "Never Enough Thyme" is always a good choice to cater - 678.297.1124. They are familiar with our group and their food is good. Typically the cost is about $35 - $400.
Secure the approval of Area Manager on the Home, speaker, sponser & breakfast menu.
Submit the FMLS #, Area, Address, Subdivision, City, Price, Photos, Copy, Speaker and their topic and breakfast sponser to graphic designer AT LEAST 25 Days prior to breakfast.
Note: The Graphic Designer has to get the files they prepared and approved to Jim Gibson (who does the website and the email blast) 19 days prior to breakfast. The website will be updated to show the next meeting information and the first of 3 email blasts will be done on the 14th day prior to the breakfast. Email #2 will be 7 days prior to breakfast and email #3 will be the day before the breakfast.
This service is not optional
Warning - Files from any other designer will not be accepted!
It doesn't matter if you have these services in your brokerage.
If you are going to hold a breakfast, this is who you will use.
I am not trying to be mean - I just don't want to have to train a new designer each month.
