UNSTOPPABLE: Sales Convention 2021 for Berkshire Hathaway HS just

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 01238708

UNSTOPPABLE: Sales Convention 2021 for Berkshire Hathaway HS just finished. First time ever the Sales Convention was Virtual. It would be totally unheard of three years ago that we would have the Convention Virtually!


Who would have guessed that we would have in the General Session featuring Gino Blefari, Chris Stuart and of course Warren Buffet making a guest appearance as well!


Needless to say having General Sessions, Exhibitor Showcases, University Training and Invitation Only Zoom Links to various Virtual events, such as Wine Tasting and the list goes on and on.


Everyone tried to make the most of it and we are looking forward to the future that this should be the one and only time a Sales Convention should be or would Virtual. So my take is we were making not only history but lemonade where others would have done nothing. 

So from March 18th - 23rd not only were we conducting business but we participated in our Anual Sales Convention.

I am grateful that we are healthy and living  and working comfortably from our home. Wishing you all a Healthy & Prosperous 2021! Thank you for reading.

Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Hello Ed,  Like many events the virtual are getting us through.  I think we all miss the energy generated from the in person atmosphere.  Until those are up and running again kudos to those who keep moving forward rather than doing nothing!  Ed trust you are staying healthy.  With 28? listings I know you have not slowed down and are staying busy.  Kudos to you as well.  Mark

Good morning, Endre... Coldwell Banker's convention was also virtual this past year... it was originally planned for NYC and as you can imagine I was quite excited about going. I'll admit I did not attend the virtual show... kept forgetting to log on.

Good morning Endre. When times change, methods must change to keep the machine running. Not everybody embraces change and then wonder why they are left behind. Enjoy your day.

Hello Endre - I wonder if virtual conventions, trade shows and the like will cease to exist or will there be a greater acceptance as time goes on?  Think of cost-savings, travel time and coordination of speakers as well as attendees.   Things will certainly change in some ways but how?  And when?

We had a few virtual events in the last year, and they worked well. In some ways, I prefer virtual (no travel, rushing to get somewhere, etc) but in others I'd prefer live (get to have actual conversations with people, etc), walk around.

Good morning Endre! Sounds like it was a great event. One of the photos looked like a speaker I worked with years ago named Jim Hoke.

Wow that's quite the line up of speakers Endre!  And I do hope this is the one and only virtual convention you'll have. I'm teaching CE virtually and it's not my favorite modem by a long shot.  but it is what is for now.

Endre technology is a wonderful thing when applied properly, and this sounds like it was in conducting this convention.

Hi Endre- I love this because it shows that we can all adapt to what we need and want to do!  I'm sure that it took a lot of creativity and organization to pull this off and it worked.

2020 and early 2021 have taught of the importance of adapting. And, the resilience of many people. You can always find gems.

Hi Endre, I wonder if the virtual events will continue for the years to come. It certainly saves a ton of money and it is convenient but of course, there's no human interaction many are craving for.
