It’s always a pleasure to gather with our Young Leaders Network to talk about the latest and greatest in real estate, and most recently we were able to do so at our 2016 Young Leaders Network Summer Summit. This year the elite educational event was hosted in Birmingham, Alabama by ERA King Real Estate, a 2016 Circle of Light for Community Leadership Award Winner and Gene Francis Memorial Award for Top All-Around Company finalist.

Over the three-day long event, more than 20 Young Leaders, representing many of the most successful ERA organizations nationwide, participated in team-building and motivational exercises focused on succession planning, growth and leveraging cutting-edge tools. Each attendee was personally selected for this exclusive networking opportunity by ERA’s senior leadership team, whose decision was based in large part on the management abilities each member has demonstrated at their respective companies.

In the words of our president & CEO, Sue Yannaccone, “This year’s Young Leaders Network Summer Summit marked our fifth annual gathering, and the amount of knowledge sharing and collaboration that took place was incredible. Our Young Leaders are eager to keep the real estate industry looking and moving forward, and TeamERA is proud to offer these opportunities for them to begin to do so.”

The Young Leader’s Network was launched in 2012 as a way for us to bring together ERA professionals showing highly-engaged and collaborative characteristics early in their careers, in an effort to further develop their leadership skills. The members are mostly made up of Gen Y or millennials who leverage this supportive community to discuss overcoming challenges and formulating business solutions.

Thank you to everyone who participated and is bringing the Summit’s key learnings to life in your own communities, and thank you to ERA King Real Estate for hosting!
