It was 1775 when Paul Revere made his famous ride. Now, almost 250 years later, it’s not the British descending on the Boston area, it’s 20,000 REALTORS® coming together to learn, to debate, to “own it,” to make a difference! There will be a lot of organized (and unorganized) networking, a tremendous lineup of speakers and presentations, as much continuing education as your brain can absorb, and overall, an uplifting spirit of sharing, cooperation and inspiration. This is what it means to be a REALTOR®!
