2018 LeadingRE® Annual Conference
January 31st-February 2nd, 2018
Rob Weise, Director of Relocation Services, and Meredith McKenzie, Podley Realtor®, joined Realtors from across the globe at this year’s LeadingRE® Annual Conference. Along with valuable sessions providing updated information for 2018, the conference was a fabulous venue for the relocation directors to connect in person.
It was also a great venue for agents to network and attend sessions specifically tailored to sales associates. Meredith attended many of those sessions, taking away the following valuable information:
- As members, Podley Properties agents have access to member organizations in all 50 states and in 70 countries. This makes it the largest luxury relocation referral organization in the world.
- 56% of all referrals actually close, making LeadingRE the most productive referral network of all. When you send out a qualified referral through the LeadingRE network, you have a 50/50 chance of receiving a referral check. That’s better odds than Las Vegas!
- LeadingRE operates one of the largest online real estate training “classrooms” in the business world. They are ranked in the Top 3 of Best Online Training Sites in America by Training Magazine.
