Considering the significant sales improvements seen in our markets in 2012, and the substantial growth throughout our company in terms of new marketing tools launched and new offices opened, we are feeling very positive about 2013. In that spirit, we are looking forward to sharing our excitement with all of our sales associates at our annual networking event next month. Our agents are cordially invited to kickoff the year with us at “Momentum,” on February 27 at the Hilton Stamford Hotel and Executive Meeting Center, located at 1 First Stamford Place in Stamford, Connecticut.
A networking hour will start at 8:30 am, allowing our agents to connect with colleagues from our three partner firms and establish new business relationships, the kind that often lead to more sales and referrals. Vendors and sponsors will also be available to speak with our associates at this time, and provide information on new marketing products and technology that are relevant to our agents’ business. Representatives from Hearst Media Services, with their high-quality digital media strategies, Spire, with its beautiful print production efforts, and Citibank, our preferred lender, will all be in attendance, as well as ad representatives with The New Haven Register. More vendors are expected to sign up in the coming weeks. At our 2012 event, agents were able to mingle with representatives from The New York Times, Trulia, Zillow and ZMags.
We will have guest speakers including real estate expert Nikki Field with Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc.’s, East Side Manhattan brokerage. Attendees will gain important insights from Field, one of the highest ranked agents in the country according to The Wall Street Journal’s annual ranking of residential real estate professionals by sales volume. Jared James, a renowned national speaker who specializes in training and speaking events for increasing sales and productivity, will deliver the keynote presentation and discuss the concept of bridging the gap in real estate. James, the founder and CEO of Jared James Enterprises, is said to often leave his audiences feeling inspired and empowered. Our company leadership will also present updates on marketing initiatives expected in the coming year, and how our agents can benefit from them. We are certain you will find something to enjoy and learn from at “Momentum,” and we hope to see you there.
