A Private Premier Event

November 15, 16 & 17, 2016 – Birmingham, Alabama

This isn’t a conference. It’s an experience where each participant helps shape the conversations and lessons.

An Exclusive Opportunity to Learn from the BEST-OF-THE-BEST in Lake Real Estate!

Attendees engage in strategic discussions about growth, value, and current real estate trends.

LEARN from top, lake-focused real estate agents, engaging in discussions about relevant challenges, new consumer habits, and market growth strategies.

HEAR from speakers who are in the forefront of modern, technology-enabled service businesses and marketing.

ENJOY receptions and dinners while you socialize with successful, knowledgeable peers from across the country.

GAIN unique insight into smarter, proven ways to strengthen your personal brand and market position.

UNDERSTAND what today’s lake home buyer and seller is really thinking and how to leverage this for success (for you and your clients).

This is not a rah-rah pep rally event (though we’ll have fun). We already know you’re a motivated “go-getter.” It’s why you’re part of our team!

The Agent Summit provides actionable information for agents serious about owning, and retaining, a major share of their local lake real estate market.
