Red Day 2016Last Thursday, several members of At Home In Louisville Real Estate Group joined with Keller Williams agents from our office and all across the country to celebrate Red Day. Red Day is a Keller Williams day of community service (meaning Renew, Energize, Donate) celebrated in honor of Mo Anderson's birthday. Mo Anderson is Vice Chairman of the Board for Keller Williams International and often symbolizes heart of KW Culture. Each year on the second Thursday in May, Keller Williams agents around the world join together to serve a charity of choice in their local community.Red Day 2016

This year our brokerage, Keller Williams Realty Louisville East, worked for the day at Youthbuild. The Louisville branch of Youthbuild is located downtown on Preston Street. This was our second year choosing YouthBuild Louisville for our Red Day of service. Youthbuild is a great program that helps 16-24 year olds gain education, job training, & later find employment opportunities.The Louisville Youthbuild opened in 2001 and moved to its current location in 2011.

Red Day 2016

This year, our team completed a couple of indoor and outdoor projects. One group worked out in the gardens and other groups repainted the Lobby, Kitchen, & Meeting Room. It was a rewarding day. It is so wonderful to spend some time giving back to those around you and we are very proud to be part of a company that values community service. We also love learning more about local groups like Youthbuild. Its always nice to spend time together outside of the office as well. Thanks to Keller Williams for your heart, to KW Louisville East for setting up this event, and Youthbuild for hosting us.

Mega Camp

Mega Camp is a real estate event that happens once a year in Austin Texas.  Top Real Estate Agents gather from across the country and discuss ways to improve their businesses and their lives.

This year Perry and Lynn represented the At Home in Louisville Team to the rest of the nation.  They spent the week at Mega Camp and learned from the best.

Mega CampDay one was technology camp.  Perry sat in a four hour training as topics were discussed such as, how to improve your website on Google to attract more buyers, how to attract international buyers, what "gamification" means and how it's changing the web, what big data means and how it affects our business, what our clients really want on our websites, how to best use social media in our business, how to use video and put our listings on a video you tube channel, how to blog to greater effectiveness, what the new Keller Williams individual websites are and how they represent a game changing scenario on the internet,

Day two was Gary Keller explaining the numbers of the real estate industry both as a nation then state by state.  The analysis really painted a picture of where the real estate market is and the best scenario to deploy to create the greatest advantage for our clients.  Gary Keller then wen on to interview agents to discuss such topics as, how to find and use virtual assistants in our business.  Gary also examined what a mega agent team looked like.  Wat were the roles of the different team members.  How many were there?  How is a mega agent different from an average real estate agent?  What do they do differently? How are they creating so much business?  Why do people prefer doing business with them?

Mega Camp TechThe last day was all about leadership training. Having a big team is wonderful, but having a great team is everything.  Great mega teams come about through great leadership.  John Maxell says, "Business rises and falls on leadership."  Understanding leadership and how to employ it on a mega real estate team is the difference between having a large team and having an effective team.

Mega team leadership discussed, numbers being the language of business and how to use them with our clients and our team.  Being the local economist of choice.  "What are the habits we are implementing each day to make our businesses and our lives better?"  "How are we inviting accountability into our businesses?"

Lynn Thomas and Althea OsbourneThe day ended with John Maxwell teaching on the 5 levels of leadership.  John shared his experience with Keller Williams and said, "I don't know any company that wants to develop people like Keller Williams."  What is interesting is he was referring to all companies, not just comparing Keller Williams to other real estate companies.  That could very well be one of the reasons why the company as a whole is so successful.

Mega Camp was incredible.  Perry and Lynn came away from it refreshed, energized, and packed full of new ways to make At Home in Louisville even greater than it already is. Their desire is to bring the most value to their clients and their team.  Mega Camp is a critical tool to help our clients find their homes in Louisville make that happen.

Keller Williams Mega Easter Egg Hunt

Keller Williams Mega easter Egg Hunt StartToday Keller Williams had an incredible Mega Easter Egg Hunt.  Keller Williams real estate agents congregated in the training room while the Leadership staff hid Easter eggs all around the office.Keller Williams Mega easter Egg Hunt

Once the Easter Eggs were placed, the agents ran all around the office giggling and tackling each other in an effort to gather as many eggs as their hands could hold.  'I've never been more excited about finding eggs in my life,' squealed Lynn Thomas, the owner of the Lynn Thomas Team in Louisville Kentucky.  'I got six eggs worth over 35 dollars,' exclaimed Noel Harris, owner of LouisvilleMLS.net.

Prizes were in abundance as the leadership staff stuffed eggs packed with everything from sweet goodies to financial awards worth as much as $100.  Meg Panella smiled and said, 'everyone in this office is a winner.'

The celebration of Easter reminded everyone in the office just how much fun it is to work and play together in an office with a whole bunch of really fun free spirited people.  'I don't remember having this much fun hunting for eggs since I was a kid,' said Shaunta Hambey.  There is some much more to this Louisville Keller Williams Office than just finding Homes in Louisville.  It's about working together in a fun filled festive working environment including the Keller Williams Mega Easter egg Hunt.

Red Day 2011 Louisville Ky

Red Day 2011 in Louisville Ky at The West End School

Red Day Lynn Thomas TeamRed Day 2011 is a day when tens of thousands of Keller Williams agents from all over the United States and Canada volunteer and pour back into their communities.  In 2010, 30,000 Keller Williams agents participated donating 125,000 service hours, or 60 years of service.  The Lynn Thomas Team is passionate about their hometown of Louisville Ky and can't wait each year to donate their time and treasure to serve in their community.

Red Day West End SchoolThe Keller Williams Louisville East Real Estate office in Louisville Ky partnered with the West End School to offer young men willing to work hard an opportunity to succeed when their might not otherwise be that opportunity.  The boys are in 6th to 9th grade.  They live at school they are equipped with a rigorous study schedule with the goal of placing them in the finest High Schools in Louisville.  They shake hands, look the agents in the eyes, during shared meals clearly articulate what their goals and aspirations are.  Keller Williams is all about providing opportunity.  This has been perfect fit for both organizations over the years.

Red Day Keller Williams Louisville EastThis year, The Lynn Thomas Team joined 42 real estate agents from the Keller Williams Louisville East office went to the West End School to share a meal and clean up the grounds.  'It's always a treat to visit the boys, have a meal and catchup with how they are doing,' says Perry Thomas Operations Manager of the team.  A variety of food was placed on long tables.  The Boys lead the prayer over the meal.  Food was gathered, buffet style. Then they all headed to their seats.  One boy say at each of the round tables so they had the opportunity to find out how the boys were doing and what their goals are.

Once the meal was complete they assembled to find out the fantastic news that the board just approved the opening of an elementary school K-5 in one of the wings of the school.  The boys then headed off to class while the agents cleaned the kitchen, gathered up yard tools and headed out to work.  The 90+ degree temperature was not enough to keep this tireless crew from completing the necessary cutting trimming and weeding of the courtyard.

The Lynn Thomas Team had a fantastic day.  Working with the other Keller Williams agents to help the West End School was a real treat.  To offer young men an opportunity to succeed at a high level brings joy to them that can only be matched with helping their clients sell and purchase their new homes.

Perry and Lynn learned that Century 21 did not release their numbers for 2010 yet.  The reason that is important is because Keller Williams is about 2000 agents shy of taking out Century 21 as the second largest Real Estate franchise in North America.  Another interesting fact is that why agent count, that is how many agents there are practicing real estate, industry wide continues to contract, agents with Keller Williams continues to grow.
