• Message from the President

by Christie Rothschild

Hello Members,

On October 8, BNAR is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Agent’s Day. This year’s Agent’s Day will be dedicated in memory of Mary Ann Kustich, the founder, who sadly passed away this year.

A super-powered Agent’s Day Committee has worked very hard for the past several months to bring you a memorable day with great sessions and exhibitors.

Since the inception of Agent’s Day in 1989, this day has signified the celebration of our professional pride and professional camaraderie.  Hundreds of area realtors will have the opportunity to attend seminars featuring local and national speakers.

This year’s keynote speaker is Alex Sheen, founder of “Because I said I would”, a social movement and non-profit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through the importance of promise.  Sparked by the loss of his father, Alex and his organization send “promise cards” to anyone, anywhere in the world.

In less than two years “Because I said I Would” has sent 250,000 promise cards to over 82 countries.  The promise written on these cards have made headlines around the world.  This young man will absolutely inspire you and move you with his message to keep the promises we make in life.

We become BETTER Professionals only if we excel at being BETTER PEOPLE.  We are faced with challenges that have increased our opportunities to expand our business internationally.

Our focus is on the 21st Century which exemplifies the tremendous changes in our industry.

We have to EMPOWER OUR TOMORROW to explore the Global Highway of information with expertise and knowledge.  The technology at our fingertips is enormous and only the best in our profession will rise to the heights in a rapidly changing and exciting world we live in.  There has never been a better time to be alive to excel personally and professionally.  The 25th Anniversary of Agent’s Day offers you the opportunity for success.

Don’t miss your Day for Success!  Wednesday, October 8, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Register NOW for this event.

Also, don’t ever hesitate to contact me.  I have a special email “Ask Christie” for you to keep in touch with me and sending your questions or comments any time, on any subject 24/7/365.

Thank You,

Your President
Christie Rothschild
