Tools to Success: One Agent’s Reaction to Family Reunion 2011

Family Reunion 2011 may be over, but the effect it has had on KW agents will last throughout the year! One of our agents, Erin Romanski, was kind enough to share her experience at this year’s event with us.

After returning from our Keller Williams Realty annual conference that we call “Family Reunion,” I have had some time to reflect on the various classes and experiences that I was able to attend or partake in.  What an amazing event once again! It is such a pleasure to be a part of this company that puts the agent #1 and focuses all of its energy on making agents do better and work smarter.  KW brings the cutting edge technology to us in every way!  There were over 8,000 real estate professionals at this year’s Family Reunion, making it the largest gathering of real estate professionals in our industry.  From the Vision Speech by Gary Keller to the State of the Company with Mark Willis and hearing real estate guru Stephan Swanepoel speak, there was a lot to be learned both in business and in life!
