The contributors of the Real Estate Marketing Blog are off to Sin City for the 2007 REALTOR® Conference & Expo. The National Association of REALTORS® holds these conventions about once every couple of months to allow for real estate professionals and industry elites to intermingle in hopes of higher education, networking, synergy and of course the ever so common referral. These conferences display some of the elite real estate industry related businesses and services worldwide looking to reach out to the professional real estate community. In addition to some of the top companies in the business setting up their illustrious booths, one can also expect to rub elbows with some the of the world’s top producing agents and brokers. Now, we have been to many NAR conferences before and the top two locations, by far, are New Orleans and Las Vegas. These two towns seem to effortlessly lure just about any real estate professional from their day to day schedules. If one has ever been to either city than there is no question as to why or how this happens. With great food, entertainment, recreational activities and unique local flair it is no mystery why many make the trip. Here are some things for everyone to look forward to: There are many booths / companies we are going to be talking to as well as real estate professionals we will be interviewing for future blog posts and perhaps a couple vlogs (video blogs). If there are any particular people and/or companies that you would like us to get some information from then don’t be bashful. Just send us an email or leave a comment for your wishes and we will do our best to accommodate them for you. What we hope to walk away with (besides some money left in our pockets): 1) What the future of real estate marketing looks like? 2) What real estate professionals need and want to market themselves and their businesses better? 3) What is working and what is not working for the real estate professional of today?
