This was the first time I had ever given a presentation in a church before and I must admit it is an awesome venue.

Sarasota Association of REALTORS Tech Expo 2010

An exciting moment for the real estate industry was the roll out of the first ever international IDX search from a Facebook page translated into 13 different languages.  Agents can now install a MLS listing search tab on their Facebook page branded to them.

Here is why:

  • The sound acoustics are incredible.
  • The seating is angled toward the center of the stage.
  • Multiple entrance/exit doors into the main room.
  • Multiple classrooms for breakout sessions.
  • God is on my side.

At one point during the seminar I was explaining effective strategies of using social media and said, “I’m sorry but praying is not an effective solution”, looked up in the air and whispered, “so help me God”.

Here are some fun pics from the day!

Here are the PowerPoint presentations from the sessions


Organizations bring in Doug Devitre from St. Louis, Missouri USA when they want to dramatically increase operational performance, create breakthrough value propositions, and serve customers beyond geographical constraints on a minimal budget. For more than a decade he has been setting trends with how organizations engage customers with social media, video marketing, and custom-built software applications. Doug’s book Screen to Screen Selling published by McGraw Hill pioneered the way sales professionals sold homes without being physically present before the COVID-19 pandemic. He is one of a select few who have earned the Certified Speaking Professional Designation from the National Speakers Association and has experience as a REALTOR.
