Today and tomorrow I’ll be in Colorado with my assistant and co-author, Lois Maljak, attending the 3rd Annual RISMedia CEO Exchange. This year’s Exchange–which is once again being hosted by RE/MAX founder Dave Liniger at his privately owned and managed Sanctuary Golf Course and Clubhouse, in Sedalia, CO–is an invitation-only event that draws the top 100 real estate brokers in the U.S.
If you run a real estate brokerage–like all of the people attending the CEO Exchange–you have to provide consistent and professional training, a strong and appropriately supportive company culture, along with a positive work environment for the agents, specialists and support staff who work for your organization. If you don’t, especially in today’s economy, your agents could flounder!
As a part of this year’s CEO Exchange agenda, I’ve been asked to serve on a panel discussion titled “Are You a Good Manager? Managing Your Agents and Agent Teams.” My fellow panelists and I are charged with sharing best practices and tip, tricks, strategies, and even warnings so other top brokers can learn from our successes and mistakes.
Joining on today’s panel:
- Brian Allan, Broker/Owner, Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group
- Chad Ochsner, Broker/Owner, RE/MAX Alliance
- Steve Rodgers, President & CEO, Prudential California Realty
Our panel is being moderated by Bob Blount, CEO of RE/MAX Allegiance. Bob’s operation includes 1,150 real estate agents working in 35 offices in Virginia and Maryland.
Since attendance at this week’s event is by invitation-only, it’s unlikely anyone stumbling across this blog post would be able to sit in my session. That being the case, I strongly recommend to anyone starting or managing a real estate agent team, that you pick up a copy of my latest book, “Power Teams: The Complete Guide to Building and Managing a Winning Real Estate Agent Team,” which I co-authored with RISMedia’s President & CEO, John Featherston.
