A group of us at Westburn Realty joined over 2,700 agents from the US, Canada, and abroad in Manhattan at New York City on Oct 7-8 for the sold out conference. The opening session was held at the Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Centre with special guest, Tom Selleck, while the phenomenal education sessions were held at the World Stages. Much discussion focused on technology and the global economy. The closing party and dance was at the American Museum of Natural History. It was a very cool venue with the dinosaurs in Coldwell Banker Blue! Our own Tina Mak was recognized at the opening session for her involvement with AREAA and the importance of the Asian market in Canada and the United States to their economies. It was a great opportunity to learn about trends in other market areas and discovery investment properties that may be suitable for our clients who wish to diversify their real estate portfolios.
