REBNY’s Residential Brokerage Division gathered at Bank of America for its Annual Meeting, where it discussed REBNY updates, heard presentations, and announced the results of the 2014 Ethics Committee and Residential Board of Directors elections.
Following Residential Division updates from John Doyle and Michael Slattery, presentations were given by Tim McGee, Director at Macro Strategy, and Gregg Larson of Clareity Consulting. McGee’s presentation, “Housing Market Realities,” focused on the future of the housing market and cast it in a hopeful, positive light.
“Some people think that we’re still in a recession,” said McGee. “When you look at the numbers, that’s clearly not the case.”
Larson’s presentation, “What are the Realities and Misconceptions of Listing Syndication?,” highlighted several listing services, such as Street Easy and Zillow, and explained how to make these websites work for you, and when to stay as far away from them as possible.
“Be wary of these kinds of websites,” Larson warned. “They aren’t always the best idea, and some can be shady.”
To conclude the meeting, Kenneth Scheff of Stribling & Associates announced the winners of the 2014 elections. REBNY would like to congratulate the following Residential Board of Directors election winners: Michael Bisordi of Tungsten Properties, Frederick Peters of Warburg Realty Partnership, Douglas Heddings of CORE, and Wendy Matlin of TOWN Residential.
REBNY also extends its congratulations to Ethics Committee election winners Stephen Kliegerman of Halstead Property and Rebecca Mason of Stribling & Associates.
