Even though brokers and agents are both real estate agents, they both play a different role when it comes to the real estate industry. Each plays a vital and important role and deserves education and training that fits their specific needs. HAR understands that and that’s why we have designed the 2013 BIG e Conference around both agents and brokers!

This year, the BIG e will have an agent centric track and a broker centric track to increase the benefits for our attendees. Whether you are new to the industry or a well-seasoned veteran, you will find education geared specifically for what you do.

Agents, the Red Oak Ballroom has you covered!  

  • If you haven’t had the chance to see Debbie Maier or can’t wait to see her again, she’s here to show you that “Remarkable Customer Service” isn’t an event, but a way of being every day.
