HSF Affiliates LLC has announced that the firm recently hosted its annual sales convention March 22-24 in Las Vegas.
More than 3,500 network professionals and guests attended the three-day event to gain insight from motivational speakers, hear market observations, attend panel discussions, preview the network’s latest tools and resources, and catch State of Rhythm at the Sunshine Kids’ Benefit event.
Gino Blefari, HSF Affiliates CEO, says the energy was high in Vegas. “The dynamic setting, stand-out performers, insightful speakers and world-class affiliates in attendance made this year’s sales convention one of the best yet,” he says. “We truly REvolutionized Vegas.”
This year’s theme—Revolution—describes the way Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices exploded on the real estate industry landscape with a world-renowned name, deep value proposition and new perspective on the business. The brand is fresh and exciting – not part of the old guard – and it’s single-handedly changing the complexion of real estate in America. Attendees enjoyed Monday’s keynote speaker Mark Thompson on leadership and Tuesday’s Eric Greitens on serving communities. Attendees also followed a busy seminar and workshop schedule focusing on topics and techniques critical to success in real estate today.
“Sales convention is one of the best investments an agent can make toward growing their business,” says Maryann Vitale Alles, President/CEO, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties. “Not only are they able to hear from some of today’s most innovative entrepreneurs and learn critical sales and marketing techniques from industry leaders, but they are also able to connect with other professionals from across the network.”
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices honored its most successful companies and professionals during its sales convention. Select Properties was recognized in the Berkshire Elite Circle and ranked #27 in the nation.
Many agents of Select Properties were recognized for their 2014 production. Out of 35,000 licensed agents, The Boehmer Team (St. Charles County) ranked #3 in Residential Units, The Kerlick Team (South County) ranked #40 in Residential Units, The Denny Team (Des Peres) ranked #54 in Residential Units and #93 in Residential GCI and the Lisa Burkemper Team (Troy) ranked #63 in Residential Units.
Network members also attended the Sunshine Kids Benefit concert featuring the State of Rhythm-Live. All proceeds went to the Sunshine Kids Foundation, an organization supporting children with cancer. For all of 2014, the network raised over $1.6 million for the Sunshine Kids. For the eighth year in a row, Select Properties was recognized in the Top 10 as the number 6th contributor in the network, giving more than $75,000 to The Sunshine Kids in 2014.
Additional convention activities included the Vendor & Exhibitor Showcase featuring real estate vendors, products and services, and the Steampunk City Theme Party at the World Market Center. Affiliate members typically use these events to build alliances and establish relationships for additional business promotion.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices will hold its 2016 Sales Convention in Dallas, TX on March 6-8.
