MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. / Oct. 24, 2018 – Over 900 attendees from around the country recently attended the Weichert® brand’s national conference at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
The 2018 Weichert Sellebration, held Oct. 16-18, attracted owners, brokers, managers and agents from its network of 500 company-owned and franchised Weichert offices across 38 states. There they enjoyed three days of networking, dynamic content and inspirational speakers.
“The atmosphere at our national conference was electric,” said Denise Smith, president of real estate services for Weichert. “We assembled a powerful lineup of speakers – including several industry experts – whose insights and sharing of best practices helped lay the foundation for a successful conference.”
The dynamic roster of speakers also provided advice for real estate success and inspiration for professional growth.
Speakers included industry experts such as Jared James, industry influencer, author and real estate coach, and Victor Antonio, a corporate sales trainer, speaker and television personality.
Weichert also invited motivational speaker Connie Podesta, an award-winning author and former radio and television personality, and Juanita McDowell, a sales, marketing and technology guru to speak at its national conference.
In addition to the event’s energetic speakers, Sellebration attendees also had a chance to network with other Weichert agents, managers and suppliers, recognize top producers and participate in collaborative learning sessions during the conference.
Some of the topics included succeeding in the altered leads landscape, the latest recruiting strategies, and best ways to build a world-class brokerage through digital marketing.
The national gathering also provided a platform for Weichert real estate professionals to share ideas and compare best practices in their respective real estate markets across the country.
“Our network of owners, brokers, managers and agents came to this event to not only learn from outside speakers, but from each other as well,” said Bill Scavone, president and chief operating officer of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. “There was an eagerness to share knowledge and experience with each other to help everyone in the Weichert system operate on a higher level.”
Scavone also noticed the event’s positive impression with Sellebration attendees.
“We received such positive feedback for our Sellebration speakers and learning sessions. The valuable insights shared at this event will help our managers and agents stand out from the pack when working with clients.”
