One of the best, surefire ways we keep our business up-to-date with today’s Real Estate marketing and technology trends? Attending the biggest, hottest conferences and conventions in North America. This is where we connect with industry leaders, suppliers, and thinkers/movers/shakers who help us bring fresh ideas back to our home here in the Valley. Keeping on pulse of what is happening in our Canadian (as well as American) markets is of key importance when it comes to projecting future trends and shifts – helping keep our friends and families informed.
We recently returned from the RE/MAX R4 International Convention at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, where approximately 6,000 agents from 62 countries convened - making it one of the most popular industry events. At the convention, we were beyond honoured to accept two Chairman's Club awards - one for Bryce’s service, and one for our team.
A major focus of this convention is the support made to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals by RE/MAX, this year featuring appearances and performance by talented Miracle Child Angelica Hale, and Miss America Savvy Shields. Angelica received care from the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals for 18 months as she received organ transplants.
The Miss America Organization has been a longtime supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by raising funds and awareness for children’s hospitals throughout the United States. Miss America requires all contestants to take part, and each year Miss America becomes a goodwill ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
RE/MAX has raised more than $150 million over the years for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, with an astonishing $10 Million raised in 2016 through the Miracle Home Program (where agents donate a portion of their commission to the CMNH per sale)!
