An Epic Week in Real Estate

It’s upon us….one epic week in real estate learning, collaboration, and of course, networking!  Inman News is about to launch a series of events that will mark 15 years of Real Estate Connect-ing!

And I’m in prep mode and excited to be taking part. You see, Inman and MTO go WAY back. Well, back to 2005 when we started this blog. One of the great resources we found as new bloggers was Inman News, along with an extremely collaborative group of fellow bloggers.

I still remember the first Connect I attended and how I was inspired by finally meeting those I had been following online for months.  Yes, the halls of the Connect boast some of the greatest networking opportunities, but it’s the sessions bringing us a variety of talented leaders and speakers with innovative ideas and technologies that keep us coming back every year!

Agent Reboot Chicago to Feature Brian Gardner of StudioPress

The Agent Reboot Conference Tour is in full swing! In fact, we’re going to make quite a few more stops this year…including Hawaii! But next week we’ll be touching down in Chicago! Now that stop wasn’t on my route last year, so I’m excited to meet and connect with many online friends in person finally! And as if that weren’t enough, I’ll be interviewing WordPress legend Brian Gardner on-stage!!!! Btw- Brian would never call himself a legend (he’s much too modest for that)…but the rest of the blogosphere will agree!

Brian is the Founder of StudioPress, Creator of the Genesis Framework, Partner in Copyblogger Media, and fellow Starbucks addict. He’s also been a mentor and colleague to Reggie, Chad and I over the years.  Suffice it to say, there is much admiration for the design, clean code and functionality that he brings to WordPress.  In addition, Brian has developed the #1 real estate specific theme, some of you may already be familiar with, AgentPress.

Why I Wanna ROCK Agent Reboot!

A great opportunity to get excited about the future of real estate, and your role in it, is headed your way. Agent Reboot is a new conference tour created by Inman News. This road show of sorts is hosted by yours truly (Woohoo!) and Daniel Rothamel. The goal of the event is to examine and identify new technologies that are shaping and changing the real estate industry, and ideas on how they are being implemented…or should be.

This one-day party, oops, I mean conference will be taking place in 12 cities. My boogie shoes are packed for: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Diego, Las Vegas, Portland. And then your favorite Real Estate Zebra will be rocking: Denver, Houston, Chicago, Boston, Ft. Lauderdale, Washington DC.

So what goes down at an Agent Reboot you ask?

Well, as one of your hosts I can confirm that you’ll most likely learn something you probably didn’t know already. You’ll hear about the latest innovations in real estate from local brokers and speakers, as well as from many familiar industry rockstars! You’ll be invited to stop by, connect, and “tweetup” with attendees and speakers after the event. Oh, and checking out any of the top industry products and services in the EXPO may result in a handsome reward.
