What: Charles Rutenberg Realty is presenting its continuing Real Estate & Education Series with guest speakers Dr. Martin R. Cantor and REALTOR/Lecturer Jared James discussing the state of the economy and the local Real Estate market. The Long Island job market had a rocky start at the beginning of 2011 as unemployment rose significantly from 7% in December 2010 to 8% in January 2011, according to the NYS Department of Labor. On the Real Estate front, closings on Long Island from year-to-year (February 2010-February 2011) were up 7.5%, but contracted sales activity declined by 11.5%, according to Multiple Listing Services of Long Island.

During this presentation titled "The State of the Economy... and What Can You Do About Your Own Success," Dr. Martin R. Cantor, a prominent Long Island economist, will focus on what is happening with the economy at both the national and local levels along with the state of the local real estate industry. As the Director of the Long Island Economic and Social Policy Institute at Dowling College, Dr. Cantor has acted as an economic development consultant to many elected officials, municipalities and Industrial Development Agencies. He also provides economic and business commentary for numerous publications, television and radio stations and is the author of "The Global Economy and Race: The Aging of America's First Suburb."

Jared James, a nationally recognized Real Estate trainer, will give Agents practical steps to follow to become more efficient, implement better systems in their businesses and create environments around them that will contribute to their success. Mr. James is the author of the international best-selling book "Enjoy Success Today" and Chief Executive Officer/Founder of Jared James Enterprises. He is also one of the most sought-after Real Estate speakers and trainers in the world and travels around the world speaking to and coaching REALTORS on what it takes to remain relevant and increase their incomes in an ever-changing market.
