Greg Allman and Howard Brinton

Orlando, Florida was the setting for the 2008 Star Power Annual Conference hosted by Howard Brinton. This was the 19th year for the conference and it was full of insight and great ideas for the Real Estate professional. I have returned from the conference with many new ideas on how to improve the quality of my business by interacting and networking with the top 1% of REALTORS® in the nation.

I took advantage of as many classes as possible. Star Power offered a lineup from Leadership workshops to the latest technology detailing how to provide all of my clients in the Greenbrier Valley with the highest quality of service. Thanks to Marilyn Bennett from the Settlement Room for the invitation to attend the Star Power conference.

I would like to extend a special thank you to the entire staff at Pro Step Marketing. I was fortunate enough to meet Tricia and the Pro Step Marketing staff in January 2008 at the CRS Sell-a-bration conference in Hawaii and what a blessing this has been. They have done a wonderful job with my website and branding package, they continue to sponsor and support leadership with REALTORS®, hosted events at Star Power and take an active role in the education of REALTORS®. I witnessed first hand the long hours that Leanne, Rick, Kurt and Tricia endured during the conference. To each and everyone: Job well done.

Please see the pictures from the conference which include Howard Brinton, my friends from Pro Step Marketing and the Settlement Room.

The Retreat Barbeque

The mountaintop clubhouse was the place to be for the Retreat Summer Barbeque. Home owners and guests were invited to enjoy the new 7,000 square foot clubhouse high a top White Rock Mountain, elevation of 3,172’. The Retreat spans over 900 acres overlooking the Greenbrier Valley with over 500 acres preserved as open space.

The roasted pig prepared by Walter Rogers from Port Royal, SC was incredible and his special family recipe for barbeque sauce was out of this world. Job well done Walter!
Charles Ausburn, Broker and wife Janie always know how to throw a party for their guests.

The clubhouse that is carved out of the mountain side offers a spa, outdoor grotto spa with hot tub, a kiddie pool and outdoor infinity pool with awesome 360 views of the Greenbrier Valley.

Homeowners may enjoy a variety of outdoor sports and activities throughout four distinct seasons: kayaking, canoeing, tubing, fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, horseback riding, caving, rock climbing, golfing, white water rafting and winter skiing all with a spectacular view.

Jill and I were guests of Ken and Lou Ford property owners at the Retreat. We enjoyed meeting several property owners and other guest. Samir Kabiraj and family traveled from Fairfax Va. Mr. Kabiraj plans to use The Retreat for a weekend vacation destination.

Even though the world news continues to report real estate foreclosures and a slow economy, Greenbrier County continues to show growth. The Department of Veterans Affairs announced they will be building a new community-based outpatient clinic in Lewisburg, West Virginia. The clinic is scheduled to be activated in the next 15 months.

This will be great for our community concerning new jobs and the service they will provide locally to our veterans.

WASHINGTON - The Department of Veterans Affairs announced on Thursday that it has plans to create 44 new community-based outpatient clinics in 21 states in order to bring more care to veterans. As part of this effort VA officials said some clinics will feature telehealth systems.

The clinics will be linked by a national health records systems to help veterans in remote areas receive access to VA facilities and practitioners across the country.

The new clinics are scheduled to be activated over the next 15 months and will increase the VA's network of independent and community-based clinics to 782.

VA officials say this increase in community-based clinics is helping it to provide prompt, quality care service to veterans, with 98 percent of veterans seen within 30 days in all types of VA primary care facilities throughout the country.

The telehealth systems that are frequently featured in the VA's outpatient clinics allow veterans to maintain regular contact with doctors in specialties from cardiac care to mental health at regional VA hospitals linked for video consultations, coupled with telemetry of health data or images.
