Even if you aren’t able to attend the National Association of REALTORS® Convention in New Orleans the next several days, you can still get a great taste of what’s happening by following the exploits of three IAR members – Alex Ruggeri, Carrie Bey-Little and Shay Lawrence Hata.
These three are just a few of the 36 “featured attendees” at the conference who will take photos, review sessions, write blogs and take video today through Monday. Their observations will be shared with members like you through the Conference Live 2014 site, their own bio pages and through social media.
Ruggieri is a broker for Ramshaw Real Estate and a senior investment advisor at Sperry Van Ness in Champaign, and his local is the Champaign County Association of REALTORS®. Just one day into the conference and he’s already submitted “My Goals for the Conference” and plans to conduct video interviews with several commercial presenters.
Bey-Little’s credentials include: broker associate for Baird & Warner in Glen Ellyn, a continuing education trainer and a proud member of Mainstreet Organization of REALTORS®. You can find her on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and more. Posted photos include a hands-on experience with an alligator.
Hata works for Berkshire Hathaway HomeService in Chicago and is a member of the Chicago Association of REALTORS®. In her first blog post, “Top Ten Things I Learned Yesterday as a First Time Attendee” includes mentions of char-broiled oysters, a drive-time MLS search, debris steak and pickpockets.
