HERE IS WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY ABOUT THE SOCIETY
(Just a few samples of the unsolicited notes from Society members and observers)
"I respect and applaud you for what you've done and are doing for the real estate community, both commercial and residential. Although your specialty is commercial, and you could let it rest at that, you've gone way beyond that and enveloped EVERYONE in all facets of real estate with your sharing, innovation and good will. What a tremendous gift and service you are giving us all!
I said I feel truly blessed to know some of the folks I do, and you are right in there. Thank you very, very much for all you do... for your enthusiasm, your drive, your sharing, your boundless knowledge and putting it all in such interesting formats... tapes, newsletters, your black disk, your online toolkit, your reprints online of your tapes... is there any medium I left out? :) Just thought I'd let you know..."

"I finished listening to your tape (Dec. 17 release) last night on my way home. It is a great tape. The interviews are wonderful and your opening remarks are very effective and informative.

Oh, how you have made this business so exciting in making so much available to us. As you have said several times 'Oh to be 20 years younger' ...I have said 'I sure would like to be 10 years younger' ...Jack, I am going to change that to '20+' Just one huge thank you... from the bottom of my heart. I wish you well for another '20+ years'."

"In our recent tape, you really hit the nail on the head with your question regarding the ability to receive a message or visit a web site and click an image to retrieve all the goodies such as photos, video, etc., without having to download from other sources, add-ons. This is a gap that you are in part filling with your Cyber Society-- By the way, I very much enjoyed your most recent Cyber tape; very entertaining and valuable information! God bless."
- Joel Cruz
"Once again you have provided valuable information on your tape. I listen to them the day that they come. The interview with Stefan Swanepoel was particularly meaningful to me. I am trying to move our firm into the cyberage - some of them kicking and screaming. 1998 is my year to make my virtual real estate company a reality. I remember from your class in Oakland that you gave some hints on the best way to identify our sites to be at the top of the lists."

I know it's nice to get a complimentary letter every now and then. I wanted to let you know that I took advantage of the Cyber Guru Hall of Fame and requested some help in solving a serious
problem I was experiencing with my new e-mail program (some recipients could not read the e-mail), I contacted guru Robin Webb and received not only a reply in a very short time but the solution to the problem. Thank you
for developing this part of our society.
I think so much of this guru program I have suggested it to one of our committees for consideration as a possible future addition to our organization (North Shore Association of REALTORS). I am president-elect and starting to develop plans for next year. I have regards to send you from George Faulkner of Georgetown. He should be joining the RECS soon since I have given him an 'Alert' tape and newsletter and talk about the society whenever I see him. George is the current treasurer of the association.
As a final note, even though I received my designation some time ago (I believe I'm # 98), I've been so busy I finally sent out press releases last week to 4 newspapers. The first announcement appeared yesterday.
Looking forward to meeting you someday... I thoroughly enjoy being a member, listening to the Alert tapes and reading the newsletters. The information is beyond expectation.
Continued success and best wishes."
- Bob Soltz
I thoroughly enjoy the information I am receiving and listen to your tapes while I am driving. I always get new ideas every time I listen to them. I want to also compliment you on the questions you ask because from your questions come valuable answers for the Society members. Cordially,"
