Keynote: What is technology and why it matters in real estate

Time: 9:00am - 9:30am

We go to conferences and have discussions all the time about the latest and greatest technologies, yet we never stop and ask ourselves, "what exactly is technology?" What are the key elements that make something so delightful that we just can't put it down or wait to tell others about it? And why should successful real estate professionals care? Mark will explore the the makeup of a successful tech product and how it impacts you, even if you don't consider yourself a "techie".

Building your brand through innovation and exceptional service

Time: 9:30am - 10:15am

Time: 11:00am - 11:30am

You're a broker who is an early adopter of new technologies, and you can't wait to whip out the latest gadget to help close your transaction or market your client's property. But that doesn't mean the agents in the rest of your brokerage share your enthusiasm for tech. What methods can you use to help curb their natural resistance to change and get them on board the tech train? Hear from 4 brokers who have been through this challenge and how they went about it.
