FAR Attendance Down from Last Year
Showhomes attended the annual Florida Association of Realtors conference in Orlando last week and the attendance was down sharply from the year prior. Last year, over 2,500 Realtors and Brokers attended and this year, we learned that only 1,700 attended.
Showhomes currently has franchises in Pensacola, Destin, Jacksonville, Orlando, Ft Myers and Naples with plans to open offices in Tampa and Sarasota before the end of the year. The FAR conference is normally a big marketing tool for our offices in that state and it was sad to see the attendance way off.
That said, we talked to lots of committed Realtors and more than a few who said business is picking up. Attitude plays a big part of real estate success and we love to meet Realtors who see today's market as an opportunity to grow, not just an excuse for poor performance!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth this year and we'll be back next year!
