Local Real Estate Fair Offers Networking And Educational Opportunities

More than 300 real estate professionals gathered at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Rochester on March 25, to participate in a day-long career development and networking conference. The event, now in its 26th year, is hosted each year by the Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS® (GRAR).

Panel discussions, educational classes, and information sessions centered on a variety of topics including short sales and foreclosures, FHA changes, and other housing and real estate related issues. The event was designed exclusively to enhance and enrich the careers of REALTORS®, and also provide a venue where they can share ideas and gain insight and knowledge about the industry. More than 50 vendors and exhibitors were present, including property inspectors, real estate attorneys, home builders, and lenders. The event was not open to the general public.

“As an organization representing more than 3,000 local real estate professionals, our mission is to provide members with opportunities that promote and nurture their professional and personal growth and success,” said Ryan Tucholoski, CEO for GRAR. “This is an industry that requires a substantial amount of knowledge, business aptitude, and social and networking skills. Ultimately, real estate professionals are in the business of helping people achieve their dreams of homeownership. As such, they realize the importance of obtaining the necessary tools to do the job on behalf of the people they serve,” said Tucholski.
