Many Thanks & Opportunities

Dear Members,

This week we celebrate a very important national holiday.   We are all so fortunate to be citizens of this great country and we should take time to reflect on this good fortune.  Our country has faced some very challenging times in recent history and we continue to grapple with reaching consensus on how to move this country forward.  But despite the ongoing debate, what we can celebrate this week is that in this country we have the constitutional right to talk openly about our  various views.  So please take a moment this Thursday, Veteran's Day, to pause and think how very fortunate we are to be citizens of this nation and to thank those you know who can call themselves "veterans."

Join a Real Estate Council! After nearly two years of looking at each other through our computer screens, in-person events are back!  If you are looking for opportunities to network with peers or real estate agents, I encourage you to join your local Real Estate Council.  If you are already a member – get involved!  The RECs are once again holding amazing events like Attorney/Realtor® Mixers and programs addressing the hottest topics that can help you build your network and grow your practice.  To learn more about the RECs visit

Join the Forum!  If you would like to see the kinds of issues Fund Members across the state are dealing with……..or have a question to pose to a group of Fund Members, The Fund's Real Estate Forum is for you! It is an incredible resource and it is FREE to join.  If you are in doubt, here's a quote from a Forum Member. 

I just wanted to give a general shout out for the list serve and the myriad resources it can bring to bear.  I posted a question about Baker Act procedures earlier, way off topic for a real estate/title list serve.  I was led to a preeminent attorney in another part of the state, that I would never have known about otherwise.  As a result, my client is going to get the assistance she needs by someone who knows what they’re doing.  Thanks to David Slachter for creating it, and thanks to the Fund for continuing it.

Join us for Assembly 2022!  The 2022 Fund Assembly will be held in-person, and for the first time in over 50 years, it will NOT be in May.  So put FUND ASSEMBLY - JUNE 16-18,2022 on your calendar so you don’t miss out.  Registration will not open until early next year but we want to make sure you note this on your calendar.  We will once again be offering an incredible program with incredible speakers….with a great Expo of vendors offering you the opportunity to learn about their services and products that can help your practices.  We will throw in some time for you to relax and visit with your fellow Fund Members, too, while enjoying some good food and drink.  So keep on the look-out for the registration link early next year.

Did you pick up on the theme for this week's blog? 

That's all for this week.  Let me know how we can help you.
