Florida Agents Still Have Time to Attend ‘The New Deal in Real Estate’ Tomorrow and Friday

By Beth McGuire

RISMEDIA, March 4, 2009-Sandy Simmonds knows the importance of building trust with her clients and providing them the most comprehensive system of real estate services in her market, the “City Beautiful” of Orlando, Florida. Her experience and results have elevated her success in the industry, but even with that, she says, in these trying economic times, she knew she needed to find something new, something that both helped her define and differentiate herself further, while at the same time offered her clients and prospects valuable information they could only gain through her.

Enter the Top 5 in Real Estate Network. Simmonds, an agent with Prudential Florida Realty in Orlando, attended RISMedia’s Top 5 in Real Estate Network’s free seminar, “The New Deal in Real Estate” yesterday and immediately saw the value, she says.

“In a nut shell, Top 5 in Real Estate is a network membership of top real estate professionals committed to the future development of their professional skills and services to the consumers,” she stated just after the seminar. “The content will promote the real estate profession as a skill sector versus a service sector. The purpose is to create a greater respect from consumers and raise consumer expectations when choosing a real estate professional.”

She continued, “Through RISMedia, members receive a constant flow of information and educational materials, for consumers and agents, through hard copy materials, daily online news, online articles, and videos. I believe they will also provide the ability to conduct webinars from my website. All of these materials are linked directly to my website(s) and updated on a daily and weekly basis. There are also systems available for marketing to expired listings, FSBOs and short sales, buyers and sellers.”

Florida agents interested in attending a free Top 5 seminar still have two opportunities in Naples tomorrow and Fort Lauderdale on Friday. Event details are as follows:

March 5 – Naples, Naples Grande Beach Resort, 475 Seagate Drive, Naples, FL
March 6 – Fort Lauderdale, Renaissance Ft. Lauderdale-Plantation Hotel, 1230 South Pine Island Road, Plantation, FL

Both events run from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The event is free, however it is requested that interested attendees register online. Visit For more information, e-mail or call Diane at 203.853-2167 x151.

“For less than $5.50 a day, I will effortlessly create valuable content on my website through RISMedia’s leading real estate information systems,” Simmonds added. “It’s a no-brainer in terms of adding cutting-edge consumer resources to my toolbox. This is what buyers and sellers are looking for now and going forward.”

The Top 5 in Real Estate is a network of select real estate professionals from throughout the United States and Canada who have met the Top 5 in Real Estate’s stringent series of various career qualifications and who are committed to the future development of their professional skills and services to the consumers and the community they serve.
