Are you riding the market’s current rising tide only to be left stranded when it inevitably recedes? RISMedia’s 2015 Real Estate CEO Exchange will take a realistic look at the current and future state of the real estate brokerage business, and reveal strategies for building sustainable success – success that is controlled by you, not market fluctuations. Hear from industry experts and your leading Power Broker peers who will share high-level insights and proven tactics for securing long-term viability.

The CEO Exchange is sponsored by the industry’s leading brokerage firms and service providers.
