Video is Hot, Learn Tips and Tricks from the Pros
Martha Navarro, Stephanie Sandoval. Moderated by Todd Sumney

Real estate listings with videos receive 403% more inquiries than those without video. Why? Because buying and selling a home is an emotional action and the imagery, sounds and experience that video enables can deeply connect you and your business with customers, convey information and inspire emotions that drive engagement. But video marketing is so much more than just listing videos.

In this panel, we will break down the five different types of real estate videos that you should make to take your marketing strategy to the next level. Top HomeSmart agents from around the country will showcase example videos and talk about their results, the strategies behind them, how they were made and discuss effectiveness, lead capture mechanisms, strategies and metrics. We will share key statistics, resources and even give each attendee a one page plan to get video kicked into high gear.

Convinced? Let's go! Join us to learn how to use video to attack your market.

1:40 PM - 2:10 PM

Are Teams the Future of Real Estate?
DeSpirito Team. Moderated by Todd Sumney

Real estate teams have become very popular and can give agents so many things: work-life balance, steady income, prestige and status, name recognition and market share. Teams can also give new agents the opportunity to develop other important skills and attributes while they learn the business: confidence, knowledge, experience and a steady client base.

Join us as a panel of top-producing team leaders talk about how they built their teams, how they operate and how they are helping the next generation of agents. In addition, we will discuss the benefits of being on a team, how to find a team and/or how you can start one on your own. And of course, we will discuss how HomeSmart supports teams and provides a fertile environment for agents and teams to grow their businesses.

2:30 PM - 3:25 PM
