Realtor Association conducts tech fair to help realtors better serve technology savvy consumersby jmaloni
The Buffalo Niagara Association of REALTORS will hold its first ever technology fair, "Get Wired'N," on Wednesday, March 6, at the Millennium Hotel on Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga.
The event is being sponsored by First Niagara. It is the second largest BNAR event, bringing more than 250 members together to learn more about the latest technology and services that will help them better serve their clients and customers.
The event is showcasing 25 different seminars in "bar camp" style, and features nationally renowned speakers who are experts in their field.
"In an ever increasing competitive real estate market, Realtors are challenged with keeping up with consumers and how they are searching for homes. This event allows them to learn more about the technology and further their skills, and also serves as a networking event with other agents to share ideas," said Louis Vinci, 2013 BNAR president.
"Every speaker at this event is paying it forward. ... They are teaching technology today because someone took the time to teach them and, sometime in the future, the Realtors here today will teach someone else what they have learned," said John B. Leonardi, BNAR CEO.
Other sponsors for the event are 2FindYourHome, Premium Mortgage Corp., HDhat Mobile Video Tools, Supra, CoreLogic Marketlinx, AVsolutions, All Pro Home Inspection & Household Environmental Services, Homestead Funding Corp., Citizens Bank, Law Offices of Nancy Saia, Onjax LOLC, Redding & Weir, The Home Staging Source and WNY HomePro Douglas Manzella.
