All signed up and just waiting to head to Prescott?  Great, well before you pack the last things into your bag, here are a few things you most definitely will want:

- Business Cards: Yes, we are in real estate, and that probably sounds like a no-duh type of statement, but bring lots.  There will be over 300 REALTORS® and affiliates from around the state.  This is a great opportunity to meet someone from the White Mountains or  in Rio Rico.  You never know when you may need a great agent to refer to or they may need one where you live.

-Notepad: You will want to take notes.  We’ve got great classes and breakouts each day. There is a ton of information, but remember, don’t be on overload. Look for one to three things–the “a-ha!” moments–that will make a difference in your day-to-day business.  Believe me, you will find more than three.

-Sweater or Jacket: We live in Arizona. The temperature in Phoenix is 15-20 degrees warmer than Prescott. Plus the conference rooms sometimes are chilly or warm depending on your natural internal temperature. “Dress in layers” is always adviseable.  And no, I am not your mother.

-Aspirin/Tylenol: Well, there’s some networking that takes place after hours, including Wednesday night at the Raven Cafe (a fantastic  local place for our Tweetup).  If you stay up too late making new friends, two of these in the AM never hurt.

When you get to Prescott, plan your strategy of which breakouts to go to, drink lots of water and make sure you check out our mini RE BarCamp breakouts on Thursday afternoon.  Want to know what it is or what topics are being discussed?  You will have to see it to believe it.  If you are looking for a technological shot in the arm, you won’t want to miss it.

See you Wednesday night at the welcome reception hosted by Region 3 REALTORS®. It’s going to be a great time!

Bring enthusiasm and a thirst for learning. We will deliver. You can probably leave the Tylenol behind unless you plan on drinking the night away with Holly.

A phone charger and prescriptions are mission critical and difficult to replace, so they’re on my last-minute checklist. And my wallet. My mom always assured me, so long as you have your wallet, you can replace anything else you forgot!

OFCOURSE! Phone charger. That is the first thing that goes in my bag. Thanks Yvonne! Very sound advice Sage…. :) And Holly, well I brought plenty of tylenol for you.

I packed some 100 watt bulbs in case I needed to see in my hotel room, but the light was fine… once I got there! I drove in on Wednesday night… nobody mentioned chains, snow tires, ice scraper, 1o0′extension cord & hair dryer to thaw out car door locks Thursday morning!
