REtechSouth, the best real estate conference in the southeast, has asked me to teach a class on how to do real estate video. It’s being held at the Gwinnett Center in Atlanta on March 31 & April 1, 2011.
I’m really honored to be among this list of speakers, which includes not only some of the brightest technology minds in the country, but also some of the most successful real estate agents who are using it.
If you are an agent, or even remotely connected to the real estate industry, I would highly recommend that you attend. It is the only paid conference I attend every year. The speakers range from the extremely practical to visionary. This gives you a great mix of things you can implement tomorrow and ideas of what will be happening a year from now. I keep my notes. I still have some from my very first year that I consult when I need help (which is often).
My class is “Jump Start Your Video Production: For the Camera Shy.” I plan to address agents who can only use their phone for video and also the agent with a more sophisticated equipment and editing setup. We go baby step by baby step and will talk about the ways to not only shoot the video, but how to upload it, what to shoot, and how to use it to help your buyer and seller clients. I think I have produced a little over 200 real estate videos for the Lake Martin area, and have been blessed to have over 54,000 views of those on YouTube alone.
I also want to thank my current readers and clients, because your requests have helped me figure out what people want in an agent. I consider this speaking engagement as a vote for the Lake Martin area! We may be small but we can still have a positive impact in the real estate industry!
Everything I teach will be based on my day to day life as a “real” real estate agent, and the tremendous amount of trial and error I have experienced up to this point. I am also looking forward to learning from the audience. One of the great things about REtechSouth is that it draws such a diverse and accomplished crowd, you learn as much from the audience’s input as you do from the speaker’s. Therefore I know there will be lots of folks in the crowd that will know way more about this than I do. I hope they pipe up and help me out!
This is the fourth year of REtechSouth. Last year the conference drew over 700 attendees from over 20 states. Speakers will be teaching 51 classes. I don’t mean to sound like I am sucking up, but even the sponsors are noteworthy. Usually at these type of events I (being cheap) talk to them just long enough to score a free pen and notepad or some breath mints. But these guys are actually helpful; I find myself peppering them with questions instead of the other way around.
Ignore the fact that little ole me is included and check out the rock star list of speakers:

If you are planning to stay at the Gwinnett Center at the Holiday Inn, be sure to select the one on Sugarloaf Parkway. There are two in Duluth and the Sugarloaf Parkway one is within walking distance of the conference.
I hope to see you there!
