30 Under 30 leaders from western Washington connect in Denver
Each spring, REALTOR® Magazine chooses a new 30 Under 30 class of outstanding REALTORS® that have demonstrated skill, creativity, and leadership in their careers.
Hard-working young professionals named this year and those from past classes took a quick break from the real estate grind to meet in Denver and celebrate their accomplishments. This annual 30 Under 30 event is planned by past 30 Under 30 honorees, and focuses on networking, idea sharing, and learning.
The conference featured a full day of topics. Sessions included a working mom real estate panel, lead generation, utilizing social media in your business, creating personal and team branding, financial planning, and building a clientele. Seattle King County REALTORS® Director and 30 Under 30 Class of 2012 honoree Rachel Adler was interviewed for the session “Mastering Mentoring,” which gave the packed room practical advice on how to lead and mentor a team.
Six of the meetup’s attendees are from the Puget Sound region, including three members of Seattle King County REALTORS®. The REALTOR® association devotes time and resources to help develop talented real estate leaders through its Young Professionals Network (YPN).
