For real estate professionals looking to take their career to the next level, My State MLS, the first nationwide Multiple Listing Service of its kind with agents in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, is hosting free webinars throughout October, November and December.

The October and November webinars will cover everything from video marketing and creating a lead generating website to tips on manufactured housing listings and how to get through slow months. The December webinars will focus on “Heating Up a Cool Market” to help real estate professionals navigate the winter months and generating sales.

All webinars take place on Thursdays from 2-3 p.m. ET. Please see webinar schedule and registration details below:

Oct. 22, 2–3 p.m. ET: Lights, Camera, Go Live: Video Marketing for Real Estate
In an increasingly digital world, creating video content isn’t just a good idea for marketing a business – it’s critical to its success. Videos receive better social media engagement, increase email open rates and can even improve SEO. Even better, there’s no need for fancy gear or lengthy scripts to get started. Join My State MLS live to learn everything to get started with video marketing for real estate.

Oct. 29, 2–3 p.m. ET: Don’t Get Spooked by the Slow Season
Winter months are an opportunity to help buyers make their listings stand out in a less crowded market. Join My State MLS to learn how to keep spirits up during the slow season, the best ways to market a listing, tips to avoid being ghosted by buyers and where to find off-market listings that are ready to come back from the dead.

Nov. 5, 2–3 p.m. ET: The MLS for Manufactured Housing
Most MLSs don’t cater to mobile or manufactured housing sales. If they do allow manufactured housing listings, chances are they don’t provide the tools that brokers, dealers and park owners need to succeed. Sound familiar? It’s time to meet the MLS made for manufactured housing. With unique fields just for listings, top-tier syndication and superior tools for teams, learn more about My State MLS.

Nov. 12, 2–3 p.m. ET: Go Google Yourself: Creating Website for Real Estate
Learn how to control Google search results and rankings. In 2020, having a website is critical to marketing, promoting listings, increasing lead generation and building trust with potential customers. If that seems daunting, don’t worry; My State MLS will cover simple solutions to get started.

“Heating Up a Cool Market” Webinar Series:
Some say the winter months are slow, but real estate pros know better. Turn up the heat this winter and join My State MLS for a free webinar series to learn how to create a hot market in the winter months.

Dec. 3, 2–3 p.m. ET: Keeping Warm in a Cool Market
Dec. 10, 2–3 p.m. ET: Make a List & Check it Twice – Improving Your Sales Process

Conversations at MOCA: Kelly Breez + Autumn Casey 10/22/20

Conversations at MOCA: Kelly Breez + Autumn Casey

Website
Cost: Free

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is pleased to feature two South Florida artists – Autumn Casey and Kelly Breez – as part of its free, virtual “Conversations at MOCA” series on Oct. 22. The artists will be discussing stories their past, current and future work with MOCA North Miami’s Exhibitions and Project Manager Kevin Arrow.

The speakers include:

Kelly Breez is a multidisciplinary artist whose work chronicles the perfectly unholy attitude and landscape of South Florida, where the characters she grew up with left the decorum and prohibitions of elitist culture in the dust. She works in – and combines – illustration, sculpture, tufting, painting, and installation. She is currently in her second year as an Ambassador for the Vans Custom Culture program, and she recently completed a five-week residency at Anderson Ranch in Snowmass, Colorado. Her work has been shown during Miami Art Week at NADA Art Fair, The Faena Forum and the Juxtapoz Clubhouse. She has a permanent installation at Facebook’s Miami offices, as part of their Artist in Residency Program. She is represented by Primary Projects in Miami, where her latest solo show, “Any Major Dude Will Tell You,” opened in October 2020. Breez holds a BFA from New World School of the Arts.

Autumn Casey draws on the ambiguity of personal memory and pop-cultural ephemera, to challenge and question her subjectivity against the world at large. Her practice, which moves from sculpture to collage, as well as video and performance, considers the history of the found object and assemblage – redeploying existing materials or moments in unexpected, idiosyncratic ways. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the New World School of the Arts, Miami, FL. She is represented by Primary (Miami) where she has had two solo exhibitions, and was selected to have a solo booth at Art Wynwood in 2015. Her work has also been included ingroup exhibitions at The Pérez Art Museum Miami, FL; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, FL; Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA; the Anne Bryan Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, among others. Her work is collected by the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, The Pérez Art Museum Miami and in private collections in Miami and New York City.
