On Oct. 10-13, Crye-Leike Real Estate Services held its annual conference in Destin, Fla. Hosted by Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, the safari-themed conference welcomed over 680 agents, managers, employees and vendors for four days of learning and fun.

Founder and CEO Harold Crye opened with a warm welcome and update on the latest company news. He then introduced world-class keynote speakers Peter Parnegg and Jared James, who each delivered large group presentations throughout the week.

Parnegg, former Coldwell Banker franchise real estate Co-CEO, explained the Ninja Selling experience and outlined ways to create a rewarding real estate career. James, an author, speaker and real estate coach, explored ways to generate business and acquire listings, such as leveraging buyers and using social media.

Over the course of two days, agents chose from 34 breakout sessions on important topics like real estate investing, video for business and community involvement. Agents were also able to learn more about useful tools such as Canva, Moxi, Buyside, MoxiWorks and Transactly.

Outside of presentations and breakout sessions, agents participated in fun activities like the beach volleyball tournament, golf tournament, sunset jam session and talent show. On the last day, everyone attended a large vendor expo featuring various vendors and Crye-Leike's ancillary services. Agents also had the opportunity to shop for merchandise at the company store, hosted by the Crye-Leike Marketing Department. Whether working, learning or enjoying free time, attendees had ample opportunities for networking and forming relationships. Overall, the conference was successful and widely enjoyed.

Crye-Leike extends a huge thank you to all of the agents, employees, managers, vendors and sponsors who made this event possible. We can't wait to see everyone next year!
