Would you spend $1500 for this opportunity?

I am attaching a PDF document sent to me on a "seminar" that the person claims will net me at least 25 to 50 new clients. All it costs me is $1,500 to "sponsor" or "partner" the seminar.

The idea is that I would be the only appraiser in the room full of loan officers and I would have my own booth, all for $1,500.

It is a built in part of the presentation to teach the loan officers the importance of setting up a business team with a Title Company and Appraiser in order to add to their own credibility and improve their customer service.
Would any appraiser be enticed by this offer? :new_smile-l:

I have received this 'offer' on several occasions now, and I think others here have, as well. It's ludicrous, as what you'll get is 50 new comp search monsters, and that's about it.

I declined each time.

In fact, the last time I was petitioned I counter offered with me offering to give a seminar on what they're doing wrong in the mortgage industry. Needless to say, they didn't go for it.

"Those who cant do, teach". Those that teach, charge $1500 for a free breakfast, and have their expenses paid by someone else. .

For $1500, I'll make you a breakfast that will take at least 3 hours, you will talk about for 10 years, and look back fondly.

If you just want some stale donuts and live with regret, give this guy the $1500.

If I pay the $1,500, do I get to buy a Zaio zone too? :rof:

Will this guy be there?

yeah I got one too last week from Money Tree, I declined. I think the Title company is owned by the same company. I think I can find better ways to market more people with my $1,500.
