RISMEDIA, March 12, 2010—RISMedia’s 2010 Real Estate Leadership Conference—‘The Real Estate Social Media Summit’—will provide the perfect backdrop for real estate professionals who are looking to capitalize, even in today’s challenging market.

Industry experts Julie Vanderblue, John Bendall, Gregg Neuman, Patty McCarthy, Brenda Fontaine and Maureen Ingelsby are among the top-producing agent panelists who will offer insight into the power of effective team-building during the session titled: “Team Building in 2010 – What’s Changed?” at this year’s Leadership Conference. The session will take place on Thursday, June 10 from 10:10-11:10 a.m. at the Hilton Rye Town in Westchester County, New York.

Here’s a more in-depth look at some of the panelists. Look for more profiles in Friday’s edition of the news.

Julie Vanderblue, President, The Higgins Group
Julie is known as one of the top selling real estate agents in Fairfield County. Her success is largely due to her exceptional marketing ability and through creating a team of professionals whose foremost concern is the needs of their clients. She received her Bachelors of Science Degree in Marketing from the University of Connecticut. Julie’s career includes advertising sales, media marketing and several independent business ventures and ownership. During her tenure as a Real Estate Agent she is noted for being the “Top Producer” 2002 – present, “Top Listing Agent 2002 Southport/Fairfield”, and #1 in Fairfield for selling our client’s properties. Julie created The Vanderblue Team in 2003 to bring together agents who shared the same philosophy of “Making a Difference in Real Estate”. As The Vanderblue Team, agents share resources, contacts and strategies to match home buyers and home sellers to properties that best suit their needs and desires.

John Bendall, RE/MAX Classic Group
John Bendall earned his real estate license in November, 1986, because he thought about buying houses and fixing them up, just like everybody else in the mid-1980’s. John soon learned the tricks of the trade from his coach, Dwight Hathaway of the Hathaway Agency. In 1991 John moved his business to Bridgewater. With speed and agility, John learned the area, refined his skills and soon became a Major League agent. Within four years he grew his business from zero to helping over 300 families. To date in 2003 John and his team have helped over 800 families. With glowing testimonials and client referrals John and his team continue to exceed their clients expectations. John was RE/MAX’s Broker/Owner of the Year in 2005 and also the 2004 CRS Realtor of the Year for New Jersey. He regularly appears on MSNBC as one of its real estate experts.

Gregg Neuman, Neuman & Neuman, Prudential California
Long recognized as San Diego County’s most successful real estate agent, Gregg Neuman, partner in Neuman & Neuman Real Estate has assisted over 5,000 families buy or sell over one and a half billion dollars ($1,500,000,000) worth of real estate. Neuman continues to confound market experts by anticipating the changes in the marketplace, rather than reacting to them, which has enabled his clients to succeed even in the most stressful real estate climates. Having entered the Real Estate industry in 1981 with 21% interest rates, Neuman has seen many housing fluctuations occur and has learned how to continue to prosper regardless of the economy. Utilizing innovative marketing techniques, cutting edge technology and strong negotiating skills, he is committed to meeting the needs of his clients.

It’s never been more important to stand out among the competition than in today’s challenging market. Don’t miss your exclusive opportunity to improve your negotiation skills from the best in the industry. This session is not to be missed!

This year’s Conference will also focus on Social Media and Mobile Strategies for both brokers and sales associates to help these professionals best meet the demands of today’s home buyers and sellers.
