WAVes of Change Award

We are proud to announce that Dionna Hall and her newly formed team in South Florida at RAPB + GFLR is the FIRST recipient of WAV Group’s WAVes of Change Award! Watch the video below of the presentation of the first WAVes of Change Award! Why were they chosen?  For creating the 3rd largest Association and one of the top 10 largest MLSs in America.  RAPB + GFLR is solving problems for brokers in South Florida.  The newly formed organization will provide listing exposure to nearly 30,000 agents, dramatically increasing marketing impact. It will also make it easier for brokers to expand their businesses into a much larger region in South Florida as they choose. What this hard-working group of volunteers and staff accomplished is NOT easy to do. It took guts, hard work, leadership skills and a strong will to better serve South Florida brokers and agents. This group did not let politics, naysayers or fear get in their way. They just made it happen. They have accomplished something that many have talked about, but have not had the bravery and tenacity to succeed at. WAV Group LOVES it when we see such great work being done to make our industry strong and vital for the long haul. That’s why we created this new award called the WAVEs of Change award. Now we have a way to take a minute to say thanks to those that go the extra mile for their members. What is the WAVes of Change Award? WAV Group is proud to announce a new program called the WAVes of Change Awards. These awards will be given to those in the real estate industry that have made bold new moves to create positive WAVes of Change for our industry. The WAVes of Change Awards will honor those that have a vision for a brighter future for real estate and do what it takes to make their vision a reality. Importantly, the WAVes of Change Award will be given to leaders of programs that are already live and have been proven to be successful.  A panel of judges will evaluate submissions based on the following criteria: Solves fundamental challenges or creates exciting new opportunities Improves the quality of service or insights provided to real estate consumers, agents or brokers Creates company, market or industry efficiencies, cost savings and opportunities for innovation. Helps to raise the bar of […]

Keep Your Job By Doing THIS!

by Camilla Harvey on September 5, 2017

It’s getting tougher and tougher to ensure a life long career in MLS and Associations. You have to be an expert in leading edge technology, customer service, training, communications and managing a board and politics. How can you keep up with all of that and know that you’re not going to get fired because you’re not keeping up? Here’s an easy and affordable way to make sure you keep your job! Are you Making Informed Decisions? Many things can happen when an Association or MLS is detached and not paying attention to the transient nature of the real estate industry and market. They can delay or even completely avoid decisions because they simply seem too difficult or controversial, causing the organization to fall behind or lose its competitive advantage. Even worse, Boards of Directors who do not stay in touch with these shifting trends can enforce and pass outdated rules and regulations that will impede their member’s success. Is your Travel Budget Limited? How do you kick your board into touch when you don’t have the budget to send several of your board members to attend multiple industry events each year? You can enroll in the WAVes of Change Series and we attend the events so you don’t have to. Four times a year we present a live webinar which includes exclusive looks at WAV Group research, emerging technology trends, broker challenges, policy discussions and industry initiatives. We also discuss the key threats and opportunities that face our industry today, helping everyone to find new ways to improve the relevance of their organization and ensure its long-term viability.

Enormous Change is Happening Around Us Everyday

by Victor Lund on July 24, 2017

Change Switch

Enormous change is happening around us everyday. I am sure that you would all agree that this change is likely to accelerate in the second half of 2017 and beyond. I believe strongly in our WAVes of Change agenda. We are committed to the support of our clients who are going through transformation journeys to redefine their purpose and strategy. We passionately believe that people and company culture are the foundation of competitive differentiation, and that is the highest responsibility for the leadership of your company. But we also believe in outside perspective, and the learning that comes from understanding the best practices developed by other companies. WAVes of Change This program, now in its second year, puts clients at the center of our business strategy and operational consulting. The quarterly meetings are the tuning fork for dozens of MLSs and REALTOR® Association Boards of Directors. Many of our clients depend on WAVes of Change as a resource to stay current with the unprecedented evolution that is happening as MLSs, Associations, Brokers, Agents, Governments, and Consumers endeavor to improve property transactions. Indeed, change happens. Thankfully change is also the biggest driver of new opportunities. But it also simulates new challenges for today’s leaders. Opportunity for Growth WAV Group has been working with a number of enterprise clients around building an Expansion Playbook and audit to insure that growth companies are addressing the right markets with the correct message and tools for supporting their success. The effects have been impressive to behold, as clients have explored their road-maps to pave new roads of transformation both internally and externally. Our industry is full of extraordinary leaders who are already hard at work accelerating change, revitalizing their business, and re-imagining how their companies can advance. Marilyn calls it “marching purposefully forward.” So many of our clients are the most admired in our industry, and we are humbled to play a role in their success. Please join us on our next WAVes of Change by emailing Camilla to enroll. The next episode will have a special edition recapping Inman San Francisco and the CMLS Conference, discussing the efforts of disrupters who have grand plans to change the way real estate happens.

Stuck in office

We have been in SO many board rooms where we see a lack of awareness of the key strategic issues facing our industry today. Many Associations and MLSs are making decisions, or worse yet, not making decisions that may put their organizations in a weakened position over time. We also see that many smaller associations cannot afford to send multiple people to conferences where many of the industry’s important issues are discussed. Stuck in the Office? Are you and members of your Board of Managers stuck in the office rather than being out at NAR Mid Year this week? We attend the events and conferences so you don’t have to! We understand that sending a whole team to several conferences is not always cost effective, so we have provided a solution to educate your staff and Board of Managers. Four times a year we present a live webinar which falls shortly after major conferences.
