After being inspired by opening remarks from the incomparable Alex Charfen, I had the chance to present some of the latest housing market trends to real estate agents attending Charfen’s annual Breakthrough conference in Phoenix last week. I included tips through the presentation on how the agents could leverage the shifting distressed housing market to their advantage.
I also encouraged questions, comments and feedback throughout the meeting and certainly got a plethora of that. Hands were shooting up all over the audience like the the syncopated water fountains I saw children running through to escape the Phoenix heat during my lunch break. The questions and comments got so fast and furious that finally a rebel group of agents shouted down the questioners — with a friendly sort of shouting — so that I could move on with my slides. If nothing else, I can say that these agents who are members of the Charfen Institute are highly engaged and highly passionate about their business.
