Poll - What is appropriate attire at a real estate convention?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Zillow

I got a kick out of reading someone call Spencer (Zillow CFO/CMO) out for not having a tie on when being interviewed the other day.  Then he got called out again on our corporate blog.  Guess he won't make that mistake again...
