Hello JTHS Members!
It's been an amazing year so far, and your JTHS-Miami Professionals, Board of Governors, and JTHS Team Leaders are making a difference together for our members! Here are some highlights of interest:

The highly-anticipated "Top 20 Reasons to Visit and Buy in Palm Beach County" flyer has been created & is available for your use (add to listing presentations & to your marketing) Click here to access. We are working on the Martin County one, which should be available later this month.

Our JTHS-Miami Professional Development Team continues to research and provide the best education and professional development programs for you. I'm excited to announce that "Agent Boot Camp" will be offered at JTHS for the first time, so be on the lookout for additional details. In coordination with our JTHS Professional Development Team, JTHS Broker member Courtney Smitheman, Broker & Property Manager for Crane Reed Properties, LLC, volunteered her time as the instructor. Here's a preview of what will be covered:

  • Agent Boot Camp - What are your roles and responsibilities in a transaction?
  • ATTN: Brokers & Team Leaders – JTHS basic boot camp training for your agents
  • New Agents – you have a RE license – now what?
  • Learn how to work well with fellow agents and close more deals

Have you received a visit yet from our JTHS Professionals? If you haven't – you will soon. Our JTHS Professionals are continuing to visit every JTHS Broker Office this year. If you missed the Team's visit, a JTHS new agent packet, JTHS Calendar, and a "Sorry We Missed You" card was left for your convenience. We encourage you to call the JTHS Council with questions or provide feedback. If you need more member packets, one of the team members will be glad to deliver them.

The REALTOR® Party has created a New Member Orientation 2 Minute video that will be added to our programs. It focuses on the importance of the REALTOR® Party for members and the real estate industry. It will assist in educating our members on the value of advocacy, increase involvement in Calls for Action, and voting on important real estate issues

While you might not have heard much about our Leadership Academy program this year, I have established a President's Advisory Group. They are reviewing the current program and making minor adjustments. Traditionally, this program has produced many successful leaders, so we can't wait to see the finished product.
