October 2014 - First international real estate conference

October 2014 - Hammer Home News

Dear Friends and new friends,


This month I had such an incredible experience. I went to my first international real estate conference held by Coldwell Banker and it was absolutely amazing! Not only because it was in Hollywood this year and they ended the conference with a private party at Universal Studios for us but because I met so many incredible Realtors from all around the world and learnt incredible skills and systems.


I love what I do, I always knew that. Helping someone with their home is an incredible opportunity and just being in the business and successful at it, was just fine. This trip was just supposed to be my first real estate trip period. Who knew it would be such a wonderful opportunity to learn, be inspired and truly appreciate my passion and meet so many people who taught me how to get even better at it! Each of my new friends during my trip were smart, passionate about what they do and interesting to learn from, its been only two weeks but I miss many of them already.


Hollywood was quite an interesting destination. I couldn’t get the “Pretty Woman” movie feeling out of me, it was rather nostalgic. When I was a little girl, my father owned a classic video store. Remember the ones,  that you used to pick up your VHS and BETA movies from, well, I spent years in that place. Hollywood was inspiring, uplifting and dreamy, just like the movies back in the 80s at the store I used to watch for hours. I loved the feeling, simply put, Hollywood was - cool!  


I am looking forward to taking all my new found knowledge and tools and begin taking my team to a level of service incomparable to the rest in the industry. Stay tuned for what’s in store for rachelhammer.com in 2015!


Have a happy and safe Halloween season,


Rachel Hammer
