Things may be getting better, but things have changed for good. Real estate professionals who are succeeding in today’s recovering but still fragile market know that a different approach to doing business is critical for increasing revenue and turning a profit.
From office space to compensation structures, today’s leading brokers have changed their business models in a variety of innovative ways in order to take advantage of today’s recovering market conditions. This important topic will be discussed and dissected at RISMedia’s upcoming Real Estate CEO Exchange during the session: “What’s Your New Model? Breaking the Mold to Break New Ground.” For a complete event agenda and speaker line-up, click here.
Taking place from 4:15 – 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, September 5, this session will feature a discussion among leading brokers who will share how they have changed their business and/or operations model to survive and thrive in real estate’s “new normal.” From replacing bricks and mortar with virtual and regional locations to innovative solutions for retaining top producers to new compensation models and creative financing solutions, this expert panel will share how they have thought outside of the traditional brokerage model in order to operate more effectively in the recovering marketplace.
