Start each morning with General Sessions featuring well known names both inside and outside of real estate. Past keynotes have included: Gary Vaynerchuck, Seth Godin, Fredrik Eklund and Barbara Corcoran, just to name a few.

Hacker Connect | Tuesday, July 17 | 8:00am to 2:30pm

We’ve all heard the complaints that real estate is slow to innovate and adapt when it comes to technology.

In a world where everyone is used to accessing answers immediately through on-demand services, the chasm between what’s expected and real estate tech products that can integrate and provide a seamless customer experience is getting wider and wider.

Hacker Connect will focus on looking at these problems through the lens of the customer, with content that gives real estate technology developers, engineers, designers and IT directors a deep look into how these customer-centric problems can and are already being solved with practical examples.

You’ll learn from developers deeply involved in solving these problems, hear some of the challenges and, most importantly, understand the customer much more effectively.

Indie Broker Summit | Tuesday, July 17 | 8:30am to 4pm

Independent brokers from across the country will gather for Indie Broker Summit to hear content focused on they can best leverage their indie brands for success.

More and more real estate agents are choosing to start or join independent real estate brokerages. In a recent NAR study of Realtors, 51 percent identified themselves as being affiliated with an independent company.

But the rise of niche brands coupled with fierce competition from national competitors and thinning profit margins is making it harder to create and sustain a profitable independent business. Those who’ve proven the most successful have identified ways to leverage their indie brand and showcase its unique value proposition in a noisy world.

Moderators Thaddeus Wong of @Properties and Kendyl Young of DIGGS will lead sessions on topical and timely issues facing every indie broker:

  • Why Do You Exist? Identifying Your Unique Value Proposition
  • How to Increase Your Margins When Agents Are Taking More and More of the Pie?
  • Building a Brand Identity When No One Knows Your Name
  • The Multiplier Effect: Using Agents as Your Brand Extension
  • Owner & Top Producer: How to Transition Out of Production and Into Leadership
  • Focusing Your Spend: Referral and Repeat vs. Lead Gen
  • Building a Brokerage that Supports Teams
  • and more!

Independent brokers will also have the chance to network with their peers in small group roundtable discussions on topics relevant to their brokerage's market size and reach.

Don’t miss the chance to learn from the some of the brightest and influential minds in the business. Get a clear view of what the landscape looks like now and for the future of indie brokers and take home actionable strategies that you can implement immediately to help stand out from the competition.
