"Passing The Baton"

Posted by EXIT Mid-Atlantic on May 9, 2019 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Rick and I have been with our EXIT Family since 2001. It has been a wonderful journey on our Energy Bus with everyone, but it is now time to pass the baton to the “new drivers” of our bus! It has taken a while to search for the right people to run our region. We searched for people with integrity, honesty, good character and having a strong business background including operating a successful business. We found the right people! We are proud to introduce Jonathan and Janett Rundlett as your new Regional Owners! Both Jonathan and Janett come from a diverse business background with a proven track record. Rick and I are confident that they will take our EXIT Mid-Atlantic region to the next level. Rick and I will be involved in transitioning Jonathan and Janett over the next 6 to 12 months. Please welcome your new Regional Owners and give them your full support. As for Rick and I, we eagerly anticipate our retirement and starting the next chapter in our lives.

We Love You...Good Bye Carol and Rick 

Springing Ahead

Posted by Jenelle Kirton on April 2, 2019 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Happy Spring Everyone! The weather is becoming warmer and it feels great to be outside again to start preparing the ground for my flower garden.

Real estate routines remind me of gardening routines. In gardening, one must cultivate and nourish the soil before they sow the seeds. Once that is done, the seeds are planted and watered every day, or week according to the plant. Later on in the season, the fun part comes when you see your plants grow and blossom into beautiful flowers!

Same goes for real estate. First, every good agent develops and builds a great database. A great database means nothing if you don’t put it to good use! Set up a marketing campaign and continuously “drip” on those people. Since your database has all the contact information, pick up the phone and start a conversation with them. You never know what kind of response you’ll get from people if you never take action.

So get out there in the warm marketplace and make a statement of how GREAT you are! Practicing this routine on a daily basis will surely guarantee…

EXIT Realty's Morris and Bonnell Rank Among the Most...

Posted by EXIT Mid-Atlantic on February 2, 2019 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)

By exitrealty / January 22, 2019

The Swanepoel Power 200 (SP200) is an annual ranking of the top 200 most powerful and influential leaders in the residential real estate brokerage industry. Once again, the SP200 has named both EXIT Realty Corp. International Founder and Chairman, Steve Morris, and CEO, Tami Bonnell, listed at #46 and #56 respectively. Among the SP200 Women Leaders, identifying the most powerful women executives, Bonnell ranked #9. These rankings are based on eight different criteria – assessing leadership from every meaningful angle.

In determining the list for 2019, editor-in-chief, Stefan Swanepoel, says, “We agree that popularity does not have a big role in the process of assessing power; neither do relationships we may have, or advertising. It is much more than that. We also agree that power and influence is not based simply on a handful of stats or quantitative data, it includes something significantly more elusive.”

Happy New Year Everyone! 2019 is going to be a TERRIFIC year! A lot of people use the new year as a time to reflect on the past. I see the new year as a time to envision all the possibilities the new year can bring.

Real estate is a people business…no matter how much technology and the internet have tried to replace the “person to person” interaction. Practice the saying, “Under Promise, Over Deliver.”

Creating lasting relationships with your clients will, in turn, result in everlasting income to you.

Re-Charging Our Energy Bus

Another summer has come and gone, along with our Broker Day and Agent Awards and Retreat. Rick and I want to thank our CEO, Tami Bonnell, Rick O’Neil and Shereese Seevers for their great contributions for our entertainment.

Congratulations to all our award winners, especially Boyd Grainger, EXIT Landmark Realty, Agent of the Year; Chris Underwood, EXIT Premier Realty, Broker of the Year; and “Special” Ed Haraway, EXIT First Realty, Energy Bus Spirit Award!

Rick and I want to thank our son, Rodney Huff, for updating our Energy Bus. He drew the bus by hand with pencil and ink. It involved many hours and weeks of tedious work to achieve perfection. His art degree from the University of Delaware has made us proud!

Now it’s time to focus on our EXIT International Convention, which is in our own backyard!

Mark your calendars for October 16-19 at the Gaylord National Hotel in D.C. It will be a great event and we hope we see everyone there!

Keep Our Energy Bus Rolling!

North East, MD. (Grassroots Newswire) October 11, 2017 – Rick and Carol McDaniel, Regional Owners of EXIT Mid-Atlantic, were pleased to have Tami Bonnell, CEO of EXIT Realty Corporation International, come to the region for a Meet and Greet party held at the Greenbelt Marriot on September 27, 2017.

Brokers and agents engaged in a special Q&A session with Tami Bonnell about the exciting earning power of EXIT. It just makes sense to be with a company that, not only has the support and training for our brokers and agents, but gives them unlimited earning power through residuals.

“We are always happy to see Tami Bonnell come into our region. The support that we get from EXIT head office in Canada is incredible!” said Carol McDaniel.
