After two years of a frenzied market, what are you doing to recalibrate and reprioritize as conditions normalize? Join us to Step Up and Stand Out! (5.5 CE Credits)

In 2020, Realtors® began to face a housing market with entirely unprecedented demands. The personal touches necessary to build genuine relationships took a backseat as transactions required efficiency and speed. But in today’s post-pandemic market, conditions are normalizing, and the way you adapt your business practices will make all the difference. Challenge yourself to Step Up and Stand Out in the industry by embracing practices that will help you in building relationships, trust, and loyalty with your clients. Join us for our annual Realtor® Summit, where you’ll learn to re-prioritize customer service, embrace authenticity, and build a brand that tells your story.

Realtors® are the industry’s trusted experts—join us to help keep client trust and experience at the forefront. Together, we’ll learn how centering relationships in our approach to real estate is good practice, and good business.

This year’s Realtor® Summit truly has it all!

  • Networking Opportunities
  • Engaging Speakers
