MADISON, N.J., and SAN FRANCISCO - November 14, 2013 - Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY), a global leader in real estate franchising and provider of real estate brokerage, relocation and settlement services, recently hosted an invitation-only industry event exclusively for leaders in real estate servicing diverse growth market segments. More than 60 real estate brokers attended the "Learn, Build, Explore" half-day conference on Nov. 7 at the W Hotel in San Francisco.
"The collective representation and insights of "Explore" attendees is a true indication of the future of our business," Alex Perriello, president and chief executive officer, Realogy Franchise Group. "Their feedback reflected that they left the event with new perspectives about the opportunities ahead in this industry."
The conference was designed to provide attendees with a deeper knowledge of how to prepare their real estate businesses for the future landscape through in-depth discussions about current trends impacting the industry and the importance of diverse market segments.
"As broker owners not connected with a large franchise, we at times miss some of the important questions that help to paint the bigger picture," David Offutt, Equity Realty Plus, Brockton, Mass. "I would be honored to attend more events like this, and I can’t thank the team members from Realogy enough for allowing me to participate."
Speakers from Realogy’s brands and its affiliated brokers, as well as presenters from the Asian Real Estate Association of America, National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, rEqual, and the National Association of Real Estate Brokers addressed the audience through a series of panel and roundtable discussions.
"The event was not only very insightful into today’s market and what is going on across the nation, but also a learning tool of innovative ideas to run brokerages and your business as a whole," said Claire Ackerman, founder/owner of GC Realty Group brokered through Venture REI, in Phoenix, Ariz. "I was so honored to be invited to an event involving so many influential minds in our industry, and would recommend attending this event to anyone in the future."
