  • Events: Use the agent’s 150x150 or 120x120 image…resize to 1x1” and place into the grey box. Depending on the content you have for each agent, you can show 1, 2 or 3 and layout 2 agents either in a row or stacked.
  • I know you wanted to use a screen shot here, but…that design is changing so filling in the numbers might be easier in the long run. Not all of this data might make it to the new Local Pages. So, you can edit as needed.

    [REQUIRED – Updated every time]
    Agents should use this slide to talk about what they’re seeing on the street
    Tell some stories!

  • OPTION 2
  • Feel free to ONLY use the bold headlines. The text is supplementary but useful.
    This copy is also used on Courtney’s new customer appreciation event postcard, so we can always update the front side to be used for classes (opposed to closed clients).
