On November 29th, the annual Coach Realtors Career Conference at Crest Hollow Country Club, featuring keynote speaker and panelist Matthew Ferrara, an internationally respected motivational speaker, attracted more than 300 real estate agents for a rewarding day of professional development and camaraderie.

“The Coach Realtors Career Conference is a fast-paced, information-filled day of learning, where our agents can acquire extensive knowledge from respected experts and their fellow agents.” said L.P. Finn, operating officer of Coach. As the area's exclusive affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, Coach has the distinct advantage of high-end marketing developed for luxury properties. Daniel Peros, Vice President of Christie’s, was on hand to discuss Christie’s industry leading online marketing system called C-SUITE. Highly respected guest speaker Michael Walker of Complex Simplified Inc., offered seminars on the best practices in Buyer Representation and negotiating strategies.
To help Coach agents stay abreast of the latest technology, special guest Juanita McDowell, a technology expert from Atlanta, Georgia, brought great insight with her discussions on social media and using modern tech gadgets. In addition, representatives of Realtor.com and Zillow.com were on hand to explore the finer points of how to maximize the benefit of these websites. The small group format of each breakout session enabled participants to interact with speakers, engage in meaningful discussions and learn from one another’s questions. “Our annual career conference is the cornerstone of Coach’s robust learning platform” said Lawrence P. Finn, Jr., owner of Coach Realtors. “We have the finest sales agents at Coach, and we proudly make the finest tools in real estate available to them.”
