Boy, that was fun!
Four days at the 2017 REALTORS® Conference and Expo this past weekend in Chicago sure flew by for us, and we’re sure it did for you, as well.
It was inspiring seeing nearly 20,000 real estate professionals bustle through McCormick Place, and a pleasure interacting with those of you who swung by our booth to say hello, ask a question or inquire about our products for the first time.
It was a long weekend, but we hope you enjoyed your time as much as we did!
Below are some photos, tweets and news from the event we thought you’d enjoy.
