The Past Few Months and the Next Year!!!

iStock_000005068696XSmall (2)Some of you may not know but one year ago I was named President-Elect of the Toronto Real Estate Board, meaning that as of July 1st, 2011, I will be President of the Toronto Real Estate Board for one year.

The past six months have really been a great trial by fire as I have had my busiest Spring in my Real Estate career plus chairing two committees at the Board, doing some teaching (Blogging and Social Media) and being part of the negotiating team that met with the Competition Bureau…Some friends have wondered how I could do it all but I have always found that “give a busy man a job and it will get done!”

My intention is to do what I always have done…work full time at real estate, manage my volunteer commitments, and stop teaching to free up more hours each month. I will always work to make sure that my clients are number one and well looked after.  However, you will be seeing more of me in the Press and think that I am too busy for you. Let me tell you that will not be the case. My Toronto Real Estate Board involvement only serves to help my clients benefit from trends that I learn about in the marketplace.

Like most years, I will be taking a quick two week holiday in July and a family holiday at Hanukkah/Xmas/New Year’s…this time with nephews, neices, great-nephews, brother, sister-in-law and friends…should be great fun!

I love my job, so know that at all times, even if I am out-of-town, technology will always allow me to respond quickly. Whether by Blackberry, iPad or laptop, I will always respond. Remember mail@richardsilver.com….

Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

    Very nicely stated Richard. Your clients will appreciate your volunteerism and knowledge you gain through your commitments. As for the “quick” two week holiday, don’t rush it already! Enjoy your time off and I know you will do a great job as President of TREB.
