What Did I Miss? 5-8-18

introduce yourself

“Listen, you have to understand this…

No matter how much you work or how much you think you have it figured out….there are gonna be days where it feels complicated…

So…lets uncomplicated it.

Do the right thing.

Treat people with respect.

Support those who support you.

Be loyal to those people.

When you fall get back up.

Look at “failures” as lessons.

Pick people up when you have the opportunity.

Lead through your actions, not your words.

And most of all…no matter how hard it gets…

No matter how heavy the burden.

No matter how impossible things may seem in the beginning.


Keep swingin that hammer…day in…day out!

Chip away, Chip away, Chip away…day after day…

And it may not be tomorrow…it may not be next week…or even next year…but eventually you’ll find yourself living the life you created in your mind long before a drop of sweat or blood was ever given.

And it will ALL BE WORTH IT.

If you do those things I guarantee you not only will you find success…you live a meaningful & impactful life…and in the end thats worth more than having more money than you could ever spend. (But there is nothing wrong with having both )

Purpose This event has been instituted for the purpose of further honoring our top producers and to reward them for their superior efforts and achievements. Club Trips are at Management’s discretion as to whether or not they are held annually.

Fiscal Year Qualifying each year for the annual trip is determined by sales performance between July 1 and June 30 (of the following year). Reference to “fiscal year” in these rules refers to this period.

Qualifications Produce a total closed sales and listing volume of $4,000,000 or more during the fiscal year. The awards volume on all sales, whether in-house or co-op, will be credited 100% towards qualifying.  Rookie of the Year is automatically extended an invitation for the year awarded.

Expense BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS REAL ESTATE KANSAS CITY HOMES will pay a portion of the expenses for the annual trip. Members who have qualified will be assessed a portion of the overall costs, depending upon the destination of the trip. The cost will also depend on the level that each sales associate has attained in the fiscal year. There are several subsidy levels offered by the company based on sales associate’s fiscal year production. These will be introduced and explained at the trip party each year.

Companions Some qualifiers may wish to take a companion on the recognition trip. If so, they must pay the total cost of the companion. A qualified member may take their spouse, family member or significant other. A qualified member may take one guest, but in no event may it be a member of the BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS REAL ESTATE KANSAS CITY HOMES sales or administrative staff (other than afamily member) or a competitor in the real estate business. Guests must be 21 years of age or older. Husband and wife team productivity will be figured as follows: Couples may both qualify for the trip individually or combined as long as both sales associates are full-time, active sales associates, licensed with BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS REAL ESTATE KANSAS CITY HOMES.

Teams Team leader may go, however, may not assign trip to another sales associate.Team member who earns $90,000 in sales associate earnings (equal to approximately 4 million in volume) or more annually may go, but is not eligible for the company subsidy. If team leader chooses not to go on trip, a qualifying team member may use the subsidy but only one subsidy per team.

Partnership—Qualifies using combined volume, with one subsidy per partnership and one attendee. If each partner achieves the 4 million commission level volume individually; each may go, but only one subsidy will be provided.
