On December 6th, Realogics Sotheby's International Realty (RSIR) hosted the 2017 Momentum Forum at Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle. The day featured inspiring panel discussions with top ranking Sotheby's Realty brokers Shen Schulz of Malibu, Bill Fandel from Telluride, and Gregg Lynn of San Francisco. We were also joined by Sotheby's International Realty Global Vice President of Affiliate Services, North America, Tony Dolceamore and John Meschke, Vice President of Affiliate Services at Realogy, Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates, LLC. 

I was fortunate enough to be asked to join one of the panel discussions of the day discussing winning tactics and approaches. Moderated by RSIR VP of Brand Development, Jennifer Johnsen-Cameron, I was joined by my fellow brokers: Sam Cunningham, Laura Halliday, Becky Gray, Scott Wasner, and Randall O'Dowd. I was honored to be included with such a wonderful group of my colleagues and loved discussing how important broker relationships are to this business. I am a huge believer in the power of collaboration and always urge my fellow brokers to utilize their network of fellow agents. 

We were also joined by industry experts that shared how they're standing out from the pack and "busting categories" within their respective industries. GeekWire co-founder Jonathan Sposato joined us and discussed his commitment to growth and innovation. Emory Thomas Jr., publisher of Puget Sound Business Journal, joined RSIR CEO Dean Jones to moderate a distinguished panel including: Craig Kinzer, Partner, Kinzer Partners; Dwayne J. Clark, Co-Founder, Chairman & CEO, Aegis Living; Erik Anderson, CEO & Chairman, TopGolf Entertainment Group and Founder & CEO, WestRiver Group; Liz Dunn, Owner, Dunn + Hobbes LLC; and Diane Najm, CEO & Founder of PhotoPad

The entire day was incredibly inspiring and such a wonderful way to top off this successful and prosperous year! Thank you to all those who I've worked with this year and to Dean & Stacy Jones and the RSIR marketing team for executing such an incredible day!
