Have You Checked the
Tax Map Number to Make Sure it is Correct?
More and more members are using the tax map number to preview properties for
their buyer clients. Without the correct number, along with the necessary dashes
and spaces, your seller could be left out of a search.
Take a moment to check your listings to make sure that the tax map number you
uploaded will make it EZ for buyer agents to locate the property.
Failure to do so might just mean less money in YOUR pocket
if the buyer agent finds it difficult and moves on to a competitive property.

9-12. The update will be formatted somewhat differently than in the past
with updates from your Board of Directors, President’s Report, and RPAC report
followed by Dianna’s Legal and Legislative Update.
And, if you are too busy to drive to the new facility, WE
WILL BRING IT TO YOUR OFFICE. That’s right, we now have the ability to push the
information through our new equipment so that you can receive and participate
right from your own office. We are the first association in SC (and maybe the
nation) to use this capability and are so proud to be able to serve BIC’s in
this manner. Of course we want you to come to the new facility, so those who
attend the Broker-In-Charge Update on site will get a FREE LUNCH.
Brokers-In-Charge only, please.
From 1-2 pm Josh will offer sixty minutes of
custom-designed training on using social media as a marketing tool. Of
course, that program is open to all members and is FREE as well.
One of the most requested programs has been a forms review
class, so we will be offering that program from 2-4 pm. Open to all
members, the forms class will review WUAR, SCR, and LLR forms that are currently
being used. Many are new and most have been updated to meet the
requirements of License Law 2017.
This program can be viewed off site as well. We
recommend getting a group together at the office so that everyone is getting
consistent information. A link to the forms will be provided for your
download if you are viewing off site.
So there it is—a full day of professional development for
