Hi Desiree,

Thanks you so much for a fun, entertaining and educational class. You had to be been exhausted when the day was over!  I learned a lot and look forward to improving my skills in working with outlook as it is a fun and exciting program that will come in mighty handy.  As much as I would love to join you & the others tomorrow morning, I will have to pass as I have PRIME at the office tomorrow morning and then will be taking a new listing after lunch.  Thanks for all the effort and work it took to prepare the fabulous Microsoft Outlook Booklets.  The mailing merging video will be very, very helpful too. I look forward to taking more classes in the future.

Desiree Savory has been a tremendous technology instructor for both our new and experienced real estate agents. She has a wealth of knowledge and a gift of making technology training interesting and fun for the agents. It is obvious that Desiree has a true passion for coaching others which makes them feel confident in contacting her for any technology needs and ongoing training. In addition, Desiree has been instrumental in helping our newly licensed agents achieve a level of confidence as they learn new techniques and programs. I would recommend Desiree as a valuable source of professional computer coaching and support.

Desiree Savory was a presenter at the 2006 Annual Conference of the Texas Real Estate Teachers Association. She was selected for her skills and knowledge of presentations and use of the computer software programs for Instructors. This is a Training Conference for a membership of experienced and qualified Real Estate Instructors. The expectation of this Membership is that the program will be given by only the most competent and experienced Trainers, Instructors and Speakers having “cutting edge” techniques and information. Ms. Savory’s computer coaching style was easy to follow and the humor used was effective and appreciated. I purposely scheduled this session for the afternoon of the last day. I wanted someone that could provide a learning session that all attendees would respond to, would interact with the presenter, and would want “more” when finished. The “on-site” response plus the evaluations validated this decision. The materials provided, the technique of presentation and the dedication to excellence in education was clearly demonstrated. Ms. Savory is that “rare” teacher/instructor “in the world of education. She truly loves what she does and excels in teaching/training others.

Mrs. Savory built my website and maintains it on a montly basis. She answers all my calls and questions and has great followup.

Mrs. Savory encouraged me to start on my CRS designation. Mrs. Savory is a wealth of knowledge and before her time. She is very computer savvy. Mrs. Savory taught me Wildfyre. She has taken me from a Regular REALTOR to a top producing REALTOR. She is the best and I recommend her and her services without hesistation.

Count me a raving fan of Desiree Savory! Customer service is one thing Desiree has committed herself to. With a customer service philosophy like hers it easy to learn and achieve more. There is a saying in real estate “they won’t care how much you know unless they know how much you care”. Desiree cares about her clients and wants them to be the best they can be so that they are technologically savvy. What a blessing it is to know Desiree! I feel I have personal technological advisor as Desiree is only a phone call and a link away. In the beginning I was a little skeptical to log on to my computer to a site that allowed Desiree access to watch what I was doing. But it was one of the best learning experience I have ever had. With my hands on the computer – and Desiree watching and coaching – how could I ever go wrong? With more and more session they have truly enriched my skill level and Desiree is certainly capable in enriching yours!

I have now taken two computer technology related courses from Desiree Savory. All total I have taken 8 courses from this organization. Ms. Savory has been by far the best instructor I’ve seen. Her expertise in technical apptitude in her teachings is apparent. However, where she really stands out is in her ability to relate the practical application of the information she is teaching. You leave her classes not only understanding the technology but you also leave with a good idea of how you can apply the technology to your day to day operations. This is what I value most in an instructor and Ms. Savory excels in this area. Another aspect where she impresses me is with her dedication and compassion for what she is doing. It is easy to see she truly enjoys teaching and lending technical expertise to others. That gives the student much more confidence in the material presented and their ability to absorb and use it later. In the future I will rearrange my class schedule to try and take a particular course when I can get her as the instructor. Tom Parks RE/MAX Success Sugar Land, Texas


Desiree,
I wanted to drop you a note of many “Thanks”. You made this part of my business a dream come true for me. I would have never gotten around to putting a website together for myself – it’s something that I have no knowledge of. I only have the basic computer knowledge.

I have taken all the classes that HAR has provided and I must say, watching you teach and seeing the way you walk many of us step by step through different situations, you have been a pleasure to learn from. You have shown us many different tools of the trade which I will always treasure. It’s hard to find an instructor who wants to see the student’s successes. You are God sent!! I tell many people about how great of an instructor you are. When I bring up my website, I get many complements. I want to thank you again for all your help!! I am your #1 fan out here and you have made a BIG impact in my life and in my business. You are my Guardian Angle!! Many people out here are having problems putting their websites together, learning Tempo, and Desk Top. I send them to your website and then explain what a difference you have made in my business and how relived I was once you got my website completed for me.

Sincerely,
Debbie Brawner

To Whom it May Concern: Desiree Savory has been a colleague of mine for the last nine years. We first met when she was working as a team member for a contract trainer that our company was using. We eventually became more closely connected when I became the in-house trainer for a Coldwell Banker franchise and I contacted Desiree to see if we could hire her on a contract basis to perform the technology portions of our new agent training program. Desiree and I worked on a monthly basis for three years and I cannot praise her enough. First of all, as a technology trainer she has no equal. Her training methods are directed toward the needs of her students — whether in a large group or individual. She has infiite patience and is never condescending. The students ranged from 20-year olds to people on their second and third careers in their 50s and 60s. She knows exactly what to say and do. She was always kind (when others would have run out of the room screaming), and never turned anyone down who needed extra help. Even though our business association ended in 2004, we had become such good friends over the years that we stay in touch. Over the three years that we worked most closely together, we developed the programs that were needed, with Desiree writing the training manuals and always going the extra mile. The classes I have observed her teaching were of a wide variety. They were email/Internet and numerous real estate-specific programs. Her session evaluations never varied — always the highest marks the students could give. Her technical knowledge goes without saying, but there is much, much more. Whether in the classroom or as a virtual trainer and coach, Desiree’s wonderful sense of humor shines through. I cannot say enough nice things about her — both as a person and as a trainer/coach.

Sincerely,
Betty A. Ruby Manager

Desiree Savory for 5 years has been my computer doctor and networking consultant for my real estate business. She is bright and understands how all the hardware and programs interact most efficiently. Her remote online analysis and fixes is top notch, saving me so much time and money and greatly reduces my stress. She is the only network person I recommend to others.

To Whom This May Concern:
Desiree Savory is a whiz at computers! She absolutely knows what she’s doing, inside & out– and in a New York minute! She made a perfectly beautiful website for me! And I’ve seen others’ that she’s done– they are equally beautiful, each in their own way. She is very creative, artistically too.

She was more than willing to please to get my website just right, with all the facts, and even contributed to supplying me with more information for the topics I wanted to cover in my website! She just knows about all these different websites “out there” that can help with so many things!

To sum it all up, when it comes to computers, “she’s The (Wo)Man!” to hire to get the job done!

Hi Desiree ~

I wanted to thank you for including me in your ZIPFORM class tonight. It’s refreshing to have the information explained thoroughly and simply understood. You make it look easy!

You solved a lot of questions I had concerning the procedures in setting up a template which repeats the information on all the other forms selected.

You’re a patient and knowledgeable teacher and I look forward in taking any future classes you might offer.

Sincerely,

Dear Desiree,

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful training class that I received from you on-line yesterday. It was so easy. You were able to answer all of my questions and loved the part of you being able to see my screen while I did the work. That is the way I learn things the easiest, by doing it myself. It was really a great session and I thank you.

Thank you,

Desi,

Martin and I just want to take a moment to say thank you for your continuous help. Your expertise and patience with two computer nerds is awesome. I don’t believe in the years you’ve been helping us that there has ever been an issue we’ve had that you couldn’t solve.

Thank you, thank you for helping us keep up with technology’s fast moving world!

Best regards,

Ina


Dear Fellow Realtor®:

I must admit this is an unusual letter. It is not often that I write these days, and I’ve never written a letter like this. But I’m compelled because I wanted to share some information that may be very helpful and financially advantageous to you as a Realtor®.

In the past few weeks I had the wonderful experience of learning more computer skills and getting my web site set up. Yes, I know, learning new computer programs is usually up there with paying taxes, getting a root canal and dieting as experiences that we anticipate with anguish.

The person I worked with is Desiree Savory. She is head and shoulders above the rest of the computer pros I have used in the past. I was resistant to try her “virtual meetings”, but after working with her in just one virtual meeting it became clear to me this was a much superior way of getting the job done. I actually prefer the virtual meeting now.

As you can tell, I’m very sold on Desiree and what she can do for people needing help with their website, or help with learning real estate related software. If I have accomplished anything with this letter, I hope it I that you will at least talk to Desiree if you are in the need of someone to help you with your computer needs. Even if you choose not to use her to help you, you will find it a rewarding and informational meeting.

Good luck to you,

I have been working with Desiree for the last few months. She recently created a wonderful website for me. In our conversations, I admitted to her that my skills are lacking when it comes to technology. So Desiree has coached me in couple of areas so far. She has taught me how to create labels and send specific emails through virtual coaching. I just was not getting what I needed from the classroom instruction.

Desiree was able to coach me by showing me step by step, what I was wanted to learn. It is a wonderful concept to sit at your computer and receive individualized instruction. My time is important and this is a win/win way of learning.

She is the BEST.

Dear Desiree:

It’s been three days since I took your course in the comfort of my own home and in front of my own computer. I am still amazed at your unique and extremely efficient method of teaching. Two minutes after meeting you for the first time on the phone, I was cruising along, having fun taking a course that I had actually been dreading.

I found your teaching style to be very effective. You never rushed me through any of the topics. You made sure I understood each step as we moved through the course. You didn’t mind reviewing topics when necessary. Best of all, you made sure I would be able to perform the tasks and understand the finer details when the class was over.

In these busy times, people need to learn ways to work faster without sacrificing quality results. We are happy to take courses from an instructor who takes advantage of the latest technology, is an expert on the material, and respects the value of everyone’s time. Thanks, Desiree, for being that instructor.

Sincerely,
Darlene Bitner


There is so much to learn, that sometimes we postpone learning because we do not have time (or we do not take the time)…we do not realize is that if we just take the time to learn it, it will eventually save us time! Invest time in your careers…it pays off! Beatriz Trabing Re/Max Elite

Mrs. Savory, thanks for the great class this morning. As you can see I have signed up for my Gmail account. I have downloaded Picasa and I have my Blackberry ready to go. Just from what you taught us, I can think of so many applications to use the training I received. Once again thanks.
