Real Estate Conferences

Should you be booking a spot at the next Realtors Conference and Expo in Orlando Florida?  Yes, because the enthusiasm and spirit of these big conventions is something vital for you to experience.

And you can bet the top realtors in the industry will be attending speaking about housing trends, realtor strategy, technology and more.

This is a Realtor career builder. They’re like the many of the big SEO conferences I’ve attended in California and Toronto and they give you a great event, some great memories and some valuable professional contacts.

In fact, just yesterday, I was just speaking with one of the top SEO people in the industry in the last 20 years out of Boston. I met her at my first big SEO conference in Dallas Texas in 1998 where she was a top event speaker.

She referred to my SEO books in her classes which was quite an honor. She had a very successful 20 year career and has moved onto personal life enhancement consulting.

You need to develop these types of connections in the real estate industry and build your awareness beyond your town or local area. These are people with vision, ambition and passion for what they do and your future clients will be impressed that you had the foresight to learn and grow.

The depth of the coverage in conferences isn’t deep, however it builds your confidence and makes you believe you could be a leader in your market.  Belief is very important.

The event I attended at Google’s headquarters in Mountainview, CA in Silicon Valley was a fun time and I hope to return again next year. They improve each year and do give you insight into the emerging trends you need to stay ahead of.
