Family Reunion is the largest, private event in the real estate industry. And with over 10,000 agents and leaders, 200 breakout sessions and endless networking opportunities, it’s certainly going to be an exciting five days!
All the things that make Family Reunion amazingly informative, fun and unique are also what can make it daunting – especially for first-time attendees. But don’t worry, we've got tips from Family Reunion pros to help you make the most of the event.
Your Compass to Navigate Family Reunion
Pocket-sized and packed with information, the mobile Family Reunion Website is an easy-to-use resource for all of your schedule and agenda questions. You can find it at http://familyreunion.kw.com. There’s also the program guide which attendees will receive at registration.
What are the top three issues you have in business today? Write them down. Go through the Family Reunion Mobile App or Guidebook and look for sessions that will help you push through those challenges and reach your goals.
Don’t sit on your new knowledge! In your notebook put as “S” by great scripts you hear, put an “I” by great ideas and put a “T” by tools.
After Family Reunion, download the PowerPoints of your breakout sessions and use them as a review, or to teach your team or your market center. Or use them as a resource for data you might be able to share with your clients.
Make connections and purposefully mix and mingle with agents you don’t know. These colleagues will always be a resource to discuss new ideas, challenges and opportunities.
Ready, set, Referrals
Start by exchanging business cards. When you do always make sure you get theirs. When you get home either you or the person in charge of your database should enter all new contacts in your eEdge database.
Spread Your Social Footprint
Friend or follow everyone you meet on Facebook or Twitter. Share what makes you unique and trustworthy and then find out the same about them!
Keller Williams Realty is a family and we sure do act like it! Instead of cold handshakes, you’ll find smiles and warm hugs. Mo Anderson, Vice Chairman of the Board, challenges associates to hug seven people a day. And in KW MAPS Coaching’s BOLD Experience program, associates are challenged to make 100 contacts in a week. Why not do the same at Family Reunion and challenge yourself to meet 100 people!
