VCP Fundraising

Congrats on reaching 250% of your office goal. You guys have been rocking it! You have raised a total of $13,668 in 2018. Thank you so much for your continued support.

I wanted to share our total raised in 2018 for VCP so far. We are currently at $43,239 raised [that includes our $6,000 corporate contribution]. I want to give a huge shout out to all of our Charity Committee members – you all are amazing and I can’t express enough just how impressed I am with all of you.
Northland and Lee’s Summit have more than doubled their goal, Prairie Village and Blue Valley are inching in on meeting theirs. It’s not an easy feat to plan fundraisers, ask, and ask again for donations. Thank you for your encouragement and persistence within your offices. I will be sending out office totals individually but wanted to update you on your impressive progress in the last two months.

Cloud CMA


See the new changes to the CMA reports: https://cloudagentsuite.com/blog/introducing-new-cloud-cma-better-way-make-reports/

Not to worry!  Supra is upgrading their NEW eKey app for Android phones over the next couple of weeks, with the NEW eKey app for iPhones soon to follow later in January.

The eKey app looks different than the old version but operates exactly the same way.  Even your PIN Code remains the same!

So, what do you have to do to upgrade?  That’s easy…ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  The NEW eKey app will update on its own with no assistance from you.  The only thing you may need to do is to recreate a new shortcut on your Android’s desktop.  If you’re using an iPhone, you don’t even have to worry about that.

Who will receive the upgrade?  Anyone using the following versions of the Apple/Android operating systems on their phones:

·         Apple iOS 10 or greater

·         Android OS 5 or greater

And, if you are using an older phone that doesn’t have the latest version of the approved operating system, don’t worry.  Your phone will continue to operate with the old version of the eKey app and will upgrade automatically when you either upgrade your operating system on your phone or purchase a newer phone with the newer operating systems.  EASY!


MLS Fine Holiday


Just when you thought the holidays were over, HMLS has a new holiday on the calendar!  HMLS is giving you a fine holiday to correct any missed status changes on property listings!

This fine holiday applies only to the entry of new listings and status changes and does not apply to non-compliant placement of wording, etc.  (All changes must be completed within this time frame to avoid a fine.

Are You a Pro?



I hope the main thing you noticed when you were looking at my college stats was that I improved in every major category each season. That’s what I’m most proud of. I won’t try to predict the future, but I guarantee you that if there’s one thing I do know, it’s how to get better.

And I know that if I want to walk in and make an immediate impact, my mindset has to be that I have to continue to improve every day, every practice, every snap. I’m determined to do that.

I will not whine or complain during the process. I won’t be a distraction, on or off the field.

I will put in the hours to master your playbook. I won’t stop until I get everything right, down to the smallest detail.

I may make mistakes along the way. And I won’t win every single game I play during my career. I won’t retire with a perfect passer rating or zero career interceptions. But I’ll try as hard as anybody.

Patrick Mahomes
