SHELTON, Conn. (April, 2016)—Over 800 top real estate professionals from across the Northeast and Florida gathered for William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance’s Fourth Annual Convention held at Mohegan Sun Casino and Convention Center. Designed for real estate agents, mortgage loan officers, sales managers and insurance agents, the event provided opportunities for attendees to network with fellow professionals, increase their knowledge of the industry, and strategize on growing their businesses.
“We are a marketing and technology-driven real estate company, and every aspect of the Convention was thought out strategically to reflect this essence,” said Bill Raveis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance. “Through digital marketing and recent technological advancements, we have been able to provide the most accurate, hyper local information to communities in the Northeast and Florida. As we lead the company down this path, we are looking forward to other additions that set us apart from the rest, including our Exceptional Properties Magazine, which will be available throughout the Northeast and Florida.”
Keynote speakers included real estate coach, business strategist and personal development trainer, Travis Robertson, Executive Vice President of Luxury Portfolio International, Stephanie Anton, and featured speakers, Joy Baldrige, Glenn Benedict, Suzanne Getz, Kevin Knol, Brian Smith, and Dennis Walsh. In addition, a general session was held by Chris and Ryan Raveis. Chris presented the company’s growth and network opportunities, and Ryan outlined the company’s marketing and technology initiatives for the future.
The Convention Committee raised the bar this year with an all-new Raveis Event App. Attendees were invited to download the app through Google Play or Apple App Store. The app gave attendees the ability to view the event schedule, exhibitors, speakers, and interact with fellow professionals in the Raveis network. In addition, those who downloaded the app were able to connect their social media channels to the platform and had the ability to conveniently share photos directly from the app.
Throughout the two-day Convention, attendees were afforded the opportunity to attend educational breakout sessions on building a successful marketing campaign, leveraging social media for business, navigating Microsoft Office 365 and insight into William Raveis’ latest technology advancement – Raveis 3D.
“We expanded this year’s program to include two specialty workshops,” said Bill Gamelli, COO of William Raveis Real Estate and Convention Chairman. “Our Exceptional Properties Workshop was an exclusive session which offered attendees insight into the latest statistics on the luxury consumer and how to leverage the tools necessary to compete for the luxury listing. Our second workshop brought together agents interested in New Homes and featured two industry leaders, Dennis and Teresa Walsh, who shared strategies for success and new construction resources.”
