Last month, the National Association of REALTORS descended on Dallas for one of its Feature Events – Tech Edge is, in the words of the NAR:
What is it? These one-day, high-energy conferences are geared toward agents who are eager to learn how current web-based and mobile technologies can benefit their business and clients.
Who’s there? Sessions will be presented by NAR Speakers and local technology experts.
What’s covered? Come learn how mobile marketing, online identities, Google and cloud computing, using Facebook for business, content creation, social media, the importance of photo and video, and more can improve your business in the changing landscape of real estate.
In the words of a participant: it was @!#$% awesome! The roster was an All-Star line up (plus me) from around the country:
I was fortunate enough to be invited to be a part of the RPR Panel – my first baby step onto the National Platform – beyond grateful and super stoked.
We started with a fantastic ‘night before’ at Sissy’s Southern Kitchen where the ‘out of towners’ were able to sample some serious Texas comfort food.
The next day was a frenzy of energetic presentations, dynamic speakers and interesting bits of new tech to geek out on – I had a front row seat and I was in Heaven!
MC for the event was Bill Lublin – @billlublin, Current Chair of the NAR MLS Trends & Emerging Technology Advisory Board and one of Inman News selections of “Real Estate’s Most Influential Online” for three years running.
Philadelphia Eagles loyalty notwithstanding, he was a fabulous host and presenter – hilarious and on point at all times. Plus, he’s a lifelong comic book guy – ’nuff said!
The event was a complete sellout – the room was packed and some walk-ins had to opt in for SRO if they wanted to stay.
In Part Two, we’ll hit the highlights and spotlight some of the tech that was touched upon.
