National Association of REALTORs Conference in Orlando!

nonetmagcoverTwo weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the National Association of REALTORS conference in Orlando. NAR conferences are held around the country year after year, but it always special when it happens to be at Disney!

NAR is currently at a membership high of over 1.2M members strong. This year more than 50,000 REALTORS attended the conference. Our industry is having a very good year! The conference is FULL of wonderful relevant information for REALTORS all across the nation.

I began my conference with a half day seminar on Smart Growth in the 21st Century. This session was full of useful information for my everyday life in real estate right here in Auburn, AL. The next several days were packed with sessions from heavy hitters in our industry such as Brian Buffini, Bob Wolff and one of my favorites, David Knox. And you can’t go wrong when listening to the NAR Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun.

We were also inspired and motivated by speakers Lou Holtz! Colin Powell was our General session speaker – he was eloquent and humorous.

The EXPO is always exciting – you can find anyone who can help you to do anything in the real estate world! All of your favorite vendors are there and they always have a special gift just for you at the EXPO!

I have  the privilege of knowing so many realtors from across the country and it is so fun running into them each year at these events.

Realtors know how to have fun, and the night life is no exception! Several vendors invited us to receptions and some have STARS…. I was lucky enough to get invited to play FAMILY FEUD with the Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan! So fun! And we were front row for the Concert… TRAIN! All in all this was a wonderful time in Orlando with a few thousand of my closest REALTOR friends!
