June REALTOR Trivia... STILL Looking for our Winner!
This is a 2 part question...  The 5th member (I've only had 3 so far!) to correctly answer BOTH questions will win a $25.00 Gift Certificate to the CAR Store!  All answers must be emailed to Deb.
You know it as RealTracs Solutions but what is our MLS's actual full legal name?  What year was it formed?
Ready, go!
Pathways To Professionalism
If it's been a few years since you've completed a Code of Ethics course, it's probably been a whfile since you have reviewed the basics of REALTOR Professionalism.
Take a moment to review the Pathways to Professionalism and watch the short video Pathways to Professional Conduct for some very simple tips on being a better peer, neighbor and professional!
April's Advice:  Save Your Battery Life!
Picture this:  You sell a listing (yippee!), you go out to the house the day of closing and remove the lockbox and throw it into your trunk and drive off happy in the knowledge that you have made several people happy and helped the American Dream one more time!  Now, picture your little lockbox bouncing around in your trunk, being leaned on by files and signs... and with each bump, the keys are hit and the box "wakes up".  Now, you wonder why your batteries die so fast!
Did you know that you can lock the screen of your box so that as it is hanging out in your trunk, it is not wearing battery life down? FUNC + 6 + 7 + ENT will lock the screen and will not turn back on until you insert a SentriCard to wake it back up.
And speaking of batteries... if your battery date on the SentriLock website is over 4 1/2 years, you should have just received an email from SentriLock that it may be time to change your batteries.  We keep them in stock at all times so come on down!  If you have a large number of batteries that need to be changed, call or email April in advance and she will get them ready for you.
Turn Your $5.00 into $501.00!
Leadership CAR Applications Being Accepted
A task force of past Leadership CAR Graduates and Directors was put together this year to tear apart and rebuild our Leadership CAR program.  I am please to announce that this new program was approved by the Board of Directors last week and we are ready to begin taking applications.  Leadership CAR is our own custom designed program to help identify, motivate and train the future leadership of our association.  And YES, a few spots may be made available to Affiliate Partners each year!
Applications will be accepted through the end of the day on July 18. 
Dates for the Retreats and Field Trip are:
September 25
October 23

Your Gently Used Handbags & The SafeHouse
Your CAR Young Professionals Network is deep in the middle of planning a fun and amazing evening to help benefit The SafeHouse, a domestic violence shelter here in Clarksville.  The event is being planned for Saturday, August 16 at The Riverview Inn.
Handbags For Hope will be a live and silent auction for donated purses and bags that will be filled with goodies from local businesses.  To make this evening happen, we need your bags!  If you have any handbags that you would be willing to donate to this event, please let us know here at the CAR office.  These can be super cheap but clean bags... or the highest of high end!
More details on ticket sales and other needs will be out soon but for now, if you have a handbag you can donate, please do!
No Increase for 2015 Dues!
This month, your Board of Directors approved a recommendation from the Budget & Finance Committee to keep the local dues the same for 2015 as they have been for more than 12 years!  The State and National Dues will not increase in 2015 either which keeps your total renewal fee at $501.00 for next year.
To aid anyone that would like to make installment payments on their annual dues, the invoices for 2015 will be issued on August 1, 2014 and will be due in full no later than December 1, 2014.
The annual Dues period is also a great opportunity to make your RPAC contribution for the year and help your profession stay strong and relevant.  Each year, we suggest a $25 investment per CAR member to RPAC.  You'll see that optional contribution amount on your billing statement.  If you'd like to make an investment towards our 2014 goal, you can log in to your Member Access anytime and invest with your Credit or Debit Card!
If you have any questions about your annual dues, please feel free to give us a call at the CAR office.

As a REALTOR, one of the first questions you usually get from a family relocating to Clarksville is how to get their kids enrolled in school!  Now, the Clarksville Montgomery County School System has developed an online tool for those families to begin the pre-registration process before they even step foot in Tennessee!
This is a great site to share with your new clients and to link to on your websites and business Pages.
For those families interested in Pre-K, they can visit THIS SITE.
Do you have a great tool that helps you in your business?
Please share that with us by emailing
