Dear Dave,
How many shopping days left until Christmas?  I hope you are getting excited to spend the holiday of your choice with your family and good friends.

Maybe the Christmas Car POOLE Karaoke will put you in the mood (or maybe not...)


Wendy Frost
Well, I'm sad to announce that Wendy Frost has decided to return to retirement.  She recently had another grandchild, and decided to make the move after being with us, Auto Europe and Krystal Resorts, for the past year.  Please join me in wishing Wendy well!

Sandy and I had the pleasure of hosting 2 great FAMs last month.  Watch for future FAMs HERE and on our Facebook page.


Happy Selling!

Dave Emery

Krystal Grand Los Cabos FAM

Sandy took 14 great agents to the Krystal Grand Los Cabos last month, with the support of WestJet Vacations.  As with all of our FAMs, we try to provide a lot of time to get to know the property.  We attempt to balance that with time to get to know the destination.  Tarramar, WestJet's ground tour operator, provided a great "Taste of Cabo" excursion for our agents to enjoy both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.
Learn more about the KGLC and all of the Krystal properties by clicking HERE.
It is always fun to work with our travel industry partners.  Last month I spent a day with Tracy Poole of Travel Brands.  Travel Brands is a great partner to Honua Kai, and all of our accounts.  

After our summer Car POOLE Karaoke, recorded during our BC interior sales blitz, there was talk of a Christmas Tracy, Freddie Marsh (Playa Resorts) and I spent a day getting in the Christmas spirit.

and if you can stand it... Blooper Reel.

ElCidEl Cid Resorts - Riviera Maya FAM

With the support of WestJet Vacations, I had the pleasure of taking 15 agents from Ontario and western Canada to the 2 El Cid Resorts in the Riviera Maya.  Agents had plenty of time to explore the brand new Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort., as well as the Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort in Puerto Morelos.  There still wasn't enough time to visits all 12 restaurant sand 9 bars at both properties.
The Ventus website can be found HERE.
