Location for the conference…

Today RISMedia is hosting the CEO Exchange, a symposium of owners of real estate companies and other industry leaders.  I am honored to be on a panel titled “Making Money in Your Market: Has Your Business Reached a Turning Point?”  They have asked me to speak from my point of view as the President and Owner of our brokerage in Phoenix, rather than from my Franchisor perspective.  Those joining me on the panel are: Rei Mesa, President of Prudential Florida Realty; Dan Forsman, President of Prudential Georgia Realty; Joseph Rand, Managing Partner, Better Homes & Gardens, Rand Realty in NY and NJ.  The panel is being moderated by John Featherston, President of RISMedia and Ed Krafchow, Chairman of Better Homes & Gardens – Mason-McDuffie, in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This should give people an interesting geographical perspective of what is going on in different markets RIGHT NOW,  as opposed to the out-dated Case-Schiller stats that the news media seems to think so highly of…

Stay tuned for more…the keynote speaker is Ron Peltier, Chairman & CEO of HomeServices of America.  His topic: “Taking Back the Real Estate Industry”  His company, Edina Realty, recently pulled all of its listings from Realtor.com and Zillow.com.  I am looking forward to hearing his rationale…I probably will disagree…
