Some symposium highlights include:
- Selling the Boom*Boom*Boom
Learn how to transcend the basic sales process and power up your presentations with the real motives and feelings of each customer, how to ask the right questions and listen for the right answers. Listen through the most common objections and speed up every customer decision.
Presented by: Will Nowell, ServiceTrac, Scottsdale, Ariz.; Steve Wolfson, Tarragon Corporation, New York, N.Y.
- What Can I Say? Legal Considerations When Marketing and Selling 50+ Housing
Marketing to 50+ buyers can be a minefield for Fair Housing awareness, especially when your market reaches beyond your own state or municipality. Learn how to expand your marketing reach while complying with the law.
Presented by: David Herrigel, Hyatt & Stubblefield, PC, Atlanta; Janet L. Bozeman, Hyatt & Stubblefield, PC, Atlanta; and Phil Darrow, Pulte Homes, Inc., Huntley, Ill.
- Kitchens and Master Suites: Two Keys to the Hearts of Boomers
Boomers are demanding and difficult to categorize. They expect innovations in design. Nowhere is this more apparent than in kitchens and baths. This session will explore the design and product directions for these two critical spaces, with an emphasis on universal design and other lifestyle issues.
Presented by: Mary Jo Peterson, Mary Jo Peterson, Inc., Brookfield, Conn.; Robert Williams, KTGY Group, Inc., Irvine, Calif.
