(WREA), the franchise offspring of N.J. headquartered Weichert, Realtors®, on October 16-18 at the first-ever home-state national convention for the 10-year-old, still growing franchise organization.

Weichert® real estate professionals from across the country will “Come Together” on October 16-18 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, for the 2012 Weichert National Convention. Members of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. (WREA), the franchise offspring of N.J.-headquartered Weichert, Realtors®, will be joined by representatives from the parent company at the Tropicana Resort for three days of general sessions. In addition to five of the nation’s most in-demand guest speakers, attendees will participate in a schedule of informative breakout sessions and focused meeting opportunities, with some free time to enjoy The Boardwalk City.
“We have much to celebrate and talk about as 2012 comes to a close,” said Weichert Affiliates President Martin J. Rueter. WREA opened its first independently owned and operated franchise office in 2002, grew to earn a “fastest growing franchise” tag by 2005, and is now serving 300 markets from coast-to-coast. “We will come together to celebrate our 43rd year as a real estate powerhouse, our 11th year as a still-growing national franchise,” Rueter said, “and to explore why Weichert works as well as to review what we have done and will continue to do to improve service to the industry.” At the age of just over 10 years, WREA can be considered a new kid on the real estate franchise block.
Rueter will open the event with his typically high energy, state-of-the-company overview of recent achievements and future opportunities, will provide a prognosis for the upcoming real estate market, and talk about new industry trends, programs, tools and technology exclusive to the Weichert system.
Guest speakers have been selected from a national roster of the top keynoters in the field: Ralph Williams, a long-favored staple for management and leadership gatherings; Terry Watson, legendary not only for his knowledge but also for his humor; Darryl Davis, likewise a humorist and best-selling author/speaker; Matthew Ferrara, international keynoter and market philosopher, and Janet Evans, five-time Olympic medalist, author, mother and inspiring speaker.
