Dear Dave,
Dave in Zihuatanejo on our FAM
Of course our jobs as Reps look pretty nice...and they are...most of the time.  Visiting friendly agents, taking excited agents on FAMs to our properties, smiling at trade shows...are great.  Sales calls in the prairies in the middle of blizzards, missing sleeping in my own bed, not seeing my partner for sometimes weeks at a time...not so fun.
Dave NOT working!
And there finally comes a time when we all just need a, for the first few weeks in May, I'll be out of the office on vacation.

In my absence, you can use (click on) the following contacts for our accounts:

          El Cid Resorts 
          Honua Kai Resort & Spa
          Krystal Resorts
          Hilton Puerto Vallarta

Happy selling!
Dave Emery
