To Be An Eagle

After years of hearing about the Eagle’s program that Realty World NCA puts on, I finally took a leap of faith and did it! 

 I wasn’t sure what to expect, except that from the time I was in high school, I’ve heard of C.V. Le Force’s famous program.  At Realty World NCA rallies, at other training programs I have attended, and from other agents who went through the program, my curiosity kept building and I knew that I would be in for quit an experience.

 When Dennis Stewart told us over a year ago, that the Eagles Program was being revived, but re-written to allow for the huge changes in the current real estate market, I just knew I would have to come and see what it was all about.

 At the end of the very first day, I knew that the values I will be obtaining during this course will lead me much higher than I could ever reach without becoming a member of that elite title as a “Realty World Eagle”

 As each session closes, I feel that I have gained more and more tools of such value, that will help me in my career.  It is not rocket science; It is common sense, mixed with a high volume of accountability, and just the right amount of motivation. 

 I challenge all who read this to come see for yourselves, the value of the Realty World Eagles Program.

Soaring High Above

A few weeks ago, I had the distinct opportunity to witness an amazing site.  While visiting my 83 year old mother, my grandson Michael, (14 years old) and I were asked by my mother if we wanted to take her canoe out on Whisky Town Lake near Redding, Ca. 

 We seized the opportunity, thinking that we would be doing most of the work, or at least our 14 year old grandson, and great-grandson would, being the strong strapping young man that he was….Wrong!  I learned a lot that day, and so did Michael.  As the three of us loaded up the canoe, paddles, a picnic lunch and some sunscreen, my mom told us that she had gone out on the lake a few weeks earlier, and if we were lucky, she would be able to show us something worth remembering. 

 Approximately 1 hour later, the three of us managed to get the canoe and all we had brought into the water and off we went.  My 83 year old mother, carefully instructing us in the fine art of paddling a canoe the way the Early American Indians had done it many moons ago.

 As we turned a corner, rounding a point, she suddenly pointed up to the top of a tall tree, and to our excitement, we both saw 4 fledglings evenly perched around a bald eagle’s nest, as if to mark off their own space.  They were spreading their wings, and reaching as high as they could safely reach, without actually taking off for their soon to be first flight.  Then suddenly, we heard their parents, (both mom and dad) screeching as they were circling over the lake, looking for food for their 4 precious babies.

 Just then, one swooped down, hit the lake, and came up with a fish and made a hasty retreat to the nest, where 4 happy eagles awaited.

 What an amazing sight!  What a memorable occasion for 3 generations to share together!  What an opportunity! 

 This memory is what I think of, every time I enter the conference room in Livermore, filled with 12 other fledglings on Thursdays.  Dennis Stewart, and the other “parents” from Realty World NCA have consistently for 3 weeks now, fed us amazing tools and lessons so that we may too, soon, stretch our wings and take that momentous flight and soar as eagles, high above the rest.
