Donate until August 15th - School Needs Children's Books!
Six years ago, KIPP Central City Primary opened with their first class - 96 kindergarteners.  They have since grown to 525 students in grades K-4 and are now concentrating on raising expectations for the students by improving the learning environment.

Literacy has become their most important focus.  Research shows that the more exposure children have to books, the grater their love of reading.  To that end KIPP CCP is in the process of creating their very first school library.  And they need help to make this dream a reality.

KIPP CCP needs donations of hardback children's books.

As most REALTORS® know, de-cluttering and donating items are part of the steps most people take when selling or buying and moving to a new home.  So, please forward this email to your clients and ask for the hardback children's books that they no longer want.  It might also be a good time for a little "spring cleaning" at your house, as well!

A collection box will be at both NOMAR's Metairie and Mandeville offices until August 15th.  Please donate!

September 11th - Learn How to be a Commercial Tenant Rep (NOTE:  DATE CHANGE)
Save the date ... Thursday, September 11th.  CID is bringing in Gregory Schenk to teach his Relationship Approach to Business:  Tenant Representation A to Z.  Course is geared towards new agents or practicing agents who want a "refresher" course.  "Resi-mercial" agents are encouraged to attend.

Agents will learn the difference between a transaction approach to business and a relationship approach to business; how to develop those relationships; and the history of tenant representation - why it started, whether they should be in this niche or not, by itself or with the listing side of the business.  The agent will learn about lease clauses and why "mastering the market and process" is so important.

Agents learning this technique will be able to help their clients through the process of a lease renewal or relocation to lease, purchase or invest and will be better prepared to save the clients time and money!

CE Credits:  3
Cost:  $50 for CID members and $100 for non-members
