Dear Agents, Employees and Leadership Team,

In less than one month, we are painting the town cabernet!

We’re heading to the national convention this week, and expect to have great things to bring back home to share with all of you.  But there is a lot going on right here.

KEY CONVERSION ACTIVITIES:

•  A beautiful new series of branding ads has been created.  Look for the first one to appear in the Pioneer Press this week, and for eCards to be available very soon.

•  Our Harbor Country office has moved into its beautiful new location in the heart of downtown New Buffalo.

•  Business card proofs have been sent to each office to ensure that all contact information is correct.

•  Our sign installation company has started to change our black posts to white posts, to make the panel conversion a quick operation.

•  We held three very successful meetings to introduce the new KoenigRubloff Advantage agent benefits program, offering insurance and financial planning options.

•  Brochures, Hot Sheets and Open House directories have been designed.  Stay tuned for exciting news about these hands-free, company-wide programs.

  • Our transition team traveled to BHHS HQ in Irvine, California and is hard at work building our presence on the BHHS national website, so that you’ll have the benefits of two powerful sites working for you.
  • Folders, portfolios and shopping bags have been ordered, and production will begin this week so that our offices are well-stocked for the April 1st launch.

GET READY:

Here are some things you can do right now:
