WAV Group partner, Mike Audet, spoke last week at Realcomp’s “Tools of the Trade Expo” in Dearborn, Michigan at the beautiful Michael Guido Theater complex, in the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center. Mike gave an Industry Update to the Brokers on numerous topics from Syndication and Shifts in Real Estate Technology to Data Licensing Opportunities. This event could well be the model for other MLSs to follow in providing great outreach support to the members.
From the keynote address by BravoTV’s Jeffery Lewis, star of “Flipping Out” and presentations including
Mike, Saul Klein of Point 2 and Steve Pacinelli from Top Producer, over 1,000 subscribers registered for the conference, which also included a trade, show area for vendors to present their products. The venue at the Ford Center is state of the art and everyone who attended noted the overall quality of the event put on by the Realcomp staff.
Karen Kage, CEO of Realcomp noted, “The 10th Annual Tools of the Trade Show was a huge success. All of the vendors were very positive with the results of their day, which is always a good sign. And, the subscribers felt that spending the day away from their normal activities was well worth their while. They learned a great deal and were entertained. This year was the first time we offered a Broker presentation. Mike Audet provided our Brokers with an informative overview of our industry and gave them a lot to think about as they move their companies forward in these challenging times.”
