Southeast Photographers Conference

 SE Photographer Conference Aerial

Over the past year, PlanOmatic has began hosting regional photographer conferences to join our Field Operations Team, with our HQ Team. The idea is to unite the PlanoCrew of a given region for learning, fun and collaboration.

These intimate meetings provide an atmosphere to share our goals and values, discuss new ideas and how to improve upon current operations, and to ensure that everyone in our family is working hard for our clients, and enjoying their time doing it.

The Southeast Photographers Conference took place on June 3, 2016 at Studio No. 7 in Atlanta, GA and hosted 15 total attendees. The technicians included those local from the GA area, as well as TX, NC and FL technicians.

Some hot topics of discussion included:

  • History of PlanOmatic
  • Department Summaries
  • Onsite Procedures
  • Client Feedback
  • Multiple Exposure Process
  • Sales Presentation

We have found these conferences to be successful by sharing industry and company knowledge among our crew, and through creating a warm and friendly environment for voices to be heard and for relationships to be cultivated. We can’t wait to host more conferences and look forward to serving our clientele and their real estate needs in the best ways we possibly can.

What Millennial’s Value in a Home – the Neighborhood

IMG_4858

An interview segment where we find out the details of what our PlanOmatic millennials value in their homes. In this questionnaire, we find out what Production Assistant, Stephanie Smith values about her homes Cole neighborhood in Denver, CO.

What neighborhood/ area do you live in and what drew you to that area?

“I live in the RiNo neighborhood in Denver. More specifically, Cole. I became familiar with the neighborhood when my boyfriend at the time moved to Denver. We immediately fell in love with the area.  For being only 7 minutes away from Downtown Denver, it feels secluded and separate from the city. The area is older so there are more houses than apartment complexes. You can rent a house with a yard and patio for much cheaper than an apartment in a lot of other Denver neighborhoods. Having an outdoor space for entertaining was a huge plus for me. The area is also very ‘up and coming’ with restaurants and bars opening up in the area regularly. Obviously, a neighborhood can have all the perks in the world, but it has to be affordable. Price was a huge deciding factor for me in choosing where to live. My neighborhood happened to have everything I was looking for. I could not be more happy living where I live.”

How do you commute to work?

“I usually drive to work because I am always running late. If I was responsible and woke up in time, I could take the light rail to downtown. I also try to wake up early enough to walk when the weather is nice.”

Are their shops/ restaurants/ bars within walking distance of your home? If so, do you find yourself visiting them often?

“Downtown is about a 20 minute walk from my house, which is amazing during the summer. More and more bars and restaurants are opening closer to my house every day, which is extremely exciting!”

Do you grocery shop locally?

“Unfortunately, my neighborhood is in what is referred to as a “food desert.” The nearest grocery store is about ten minutes away, but I choose to drive further.”

Do you attend events near your home?

“There is a lot of neighborhood pride in the Cole/ Whittier area, so neighborhood events/ festivals are pretty common. I love attending these and it is amazing that they are so close to my house. Welton Street has a few concert venues that regularly have shows that I attend as well.”

Do your spend your weekends/ free time near or far from home?

“I spend majority of my free time around my house. In fact, my house is usually the meeting point for my friends since it is so conveniently located.”

How many hours would you say you spend in your neighborhood (within a 5 mile radius of your home) per week (not including time spent inside your home)?

“I would say that I spend 50% of my week in my neighborhood. I would not consider our office a part of my neighborhood, even though it is very close. There is so much to do in my neighborhood that I don’t find myself venturing very far too often!”

1) Where is your favorite place to order Friday lunch from?
Bubu because it’s healthy and extremely customizable.
 
2) If you had your choice, would you be a water, land or air animal?

Air animal, because the ability to fly would be amazing.

The office dogs. Sometimes you just need to get a little K9 lovin’ in when you’re having a hard day.
 
4) What is your astrological sign? Does it hold true to your personality?
Virgo is pretty true. I feel as though I am relatively modest, reliable and loyal. However, I do not feel as pessimistic as Virgo’s are generally believed to be.

Varkala, India because the Kerala state of India has always been very high on the list of places that I would love to visit and live.

1) Do you prefer Pepsi or Coke?
More of a root beer man, but if I’ve gotta pick then Coke all the way. I’ve always thought Pepsi was real nasty, even though in reality it’s all the same sugary nonsense.

 

2) What is your spirit animal?
I’ve always figured I’m a bit of a turtle, real slow and steady, and ain’t nothing can touch me in my shell.

 

3) What is your favorite season?
To be honest I like them all, hot summers or cold winters it’s all in your mindset of enjoying the day despite whatever discomfort comes your way.

 

4) On the weekends you are typically..
Nice weather means the outdoors, whether that’s camping, hiking, cycling, etc. Cold usually means I get lazy and end up on my couch or in a brewery somewhere.

 

5) What do your shoes say about you?
Half of the time I’ve got my cycling shoes on so I guess that’s pretty indicative of what I’m into.
