The Real Estate Success Rocks 2015 Conference (RESR) came to Seattle September 25-28, as the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue welcomed hundreds of the nation’s top brokers to the Seattle area for a long weekend of exclusive events. Spearheaded by Real Estate.Vision (REV), an invitation only group of the nation’s top brokers, the conference presents an annual opportunity for REV’s distinguished members to share their time and expertise with attendees, through a variety of panels and activities. Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) commanded a strong presence at the conference, with two featured speakers and an exclusive post-conference wine bar reception for guests to celebrate and mingle as the weekend came to a close.
From “Rapid Fire” 5 Minute Talks to Breakout Sessions on topics ranging from Databases and Social Media to Team Building and Referrals, RSIR’s brokers were thrilled to pair education and entertainment throughout the weekend.
Joanmarie Curran, founding REV Member and RSIR Broker, was excited to be a part of the “Working with Seniors” breakout session, where she presented on downsizing to the right size. Curran drew on her personal experience of working with seniors and boomers, sharing best practices, insights and marketing initiatives to engage with this complex and significant group of clients. Curran also looked at the things people do and don’t consider when moving through major life transitions, downsizing included.
“I am energized by the sharing of such high level content, terrific practical information and insightful motivation from a community of high performance, nationally recognized, real estate professionals who speak from the heart” said Curran. “It was truly an honor and privilege to be part of this event.

Jones also proclaimed that “video is the new black,” showcasing RSIR’s many short films and interviews, along with their highly anticipated forthcoming broker profile series.
Following the presentation, Jones invited distinguished guests to bring the conference to a close with a “taste of Washington” at RSIR’s “Connoisseurs of Life” Showroom in downtown Kirkland. Attendees, including Patrick Lilly, Founder of Real Estate Success Rocks, sipped on distinguished wines by DeLille Cellars, filled up on bites by Volterra and rounded the evening out with complimentary chocolate tastings courtesy of local chocolatier Seleuss Chocolates.
