Classes focused on new real estate technology, advanced marketing, social media and public relations. In addition, attendees also learned the latest techniques for conducting successful real estate auctions.
Also at the conference, the 2011 results were announced showing another year of sales increases with the average unit sales production up over 8 percent. Land sales were especially strong across the United States for United Country offices, with sales increase over 20 percent versus 2010.
“Farms and ranch land in particular showed the most substantial growth in the land category with roughly 38 percent increases year-over-year,” said Jason Cole, chief financial officer of United Country Real Estate. “But the biggest increase was in land auction sales, which was 128 percent over 2010.”
