Founder and CEO Harold Crye opened with a warm welcome and update on the latest company news. He then introduced keynote speakers Craig Cheatham and Leigh Brown, who each delivered engaging large group presentations during the conference.

Cheatham, President and CEO of the Realty Alliance, shared insights on current trends shaping the future of the real estate industry. Brown a Realtor, CEO, best-selling author, coach, and speaker spoke on overcoming challenges and embracing success in her session titled "Thriving No Matter What."

Over the course of two days, agents chose from 33 breakout sessions on important topics like real estate investing, artificial intelligence, and social media marketing. Agents were also able to learn about useful tools such as Instagram Reels, Chat GPT, Crye-Leike TurnKey, and the company's new CRM.

Outside of presentations and breakout sessions, agents participated in fun activities like the golf tournament, pickleball tournament, and 70's sing-along. 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.
