Houston (Aug. 20, 2003) -- Stewart Title is again serving as the exclusive program sponsor of the Technology Learning Center (TLC), presented at the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) Conference. It's Stewart's fifth consecutive year to sponsor the TLC. Last year's course lineup drew more than 5,700 Realtors for 75 technology courses offered over four days.
Stewart's TLC sponsorship is just one way it helps Realtors use technology as tools for success. Through the courses presented at NAR and an array of technology resources, Stewart enables Realtors to provide the best service to their buyers and sellers.
"There is something to be gained in every Technology Learning Center Class - always something new to learn," said Patsy A. Smith, Realtor salesperson with Wyant Realty in Ormond Beach, Fla. Smith double-teamed with her husband to cover more of the TLC classes at last year's conference, and especially enjoyed the class on digital cameras.
More than 20 course topics are being offered this year in the TLC including Blackberry™ and Palm™-based handheld devices, tablet PCs, digital photography, Top Producer® and ACT!™ client and time management skills and creating online virtual tours. A host of Microsoft® XP application and operating system sessions are also being provided on Microsoft Photo Editor, Microsoft Word, Outlook®, Excel, PowerPoint®, Microsoft Publisher and Windows® XP.
"We diligently work to prepare a TLC program that delivers a broad-based, hands-on learning experience where Realtors can get vital technology information and skills they need to be more productive and profitable," said Malcolm Morris, president, Stewart Title Guaranty Co.
But the TLC sponsorship is just one of many ways Stewart helps Realtors use technology as tools for success. Stewart's suite of value-added products and services also equip Realtors to provide superior service to their buyers and sellers. "Through the TLC, SureClose and other Stewart technology resources, we underscore our commitment to the success of all Realtors," said Morris.
