AFIRE Logo We know you’ve been to your share of boring real estate conferences, filled with lackluster speakers tackling the same topics you’ve heard a dozen times before. Breakout sessions, if available, offer the same-old, same-old. That’s not what AFIRE is all about.  We’re just 9 weeks from the opening of our AFIRE conference, Courageous Leadership, in Scottsdale, Arizona…and we can’t wait! As a member of the AFIRE Advisory Board, I can’t wait to share all of the exciting news about this year’s event!

AFIRE is a dynamic event created by women who are leaders in our industry. It’s been created for you – the amazing, awesome women who are passionate about real estate and the roles they play as a leaders. One of the things about AFIRE is the amazing roster of guests who have agreed to be speakers—these women definitely have the best and brightest minds in our industry.

Marilyn Wilson, a featured speaker at AFIRE, and one of the WAV Group partners,Marilyn Wilson Image is proud to have attended every AFIRE event to date. Marilyn Wilson says “I LOVE the topic for this year’s event – Courageous Leadership.  We are living in a very important time right now.  We are holding the fate of the real estate industry in our hands and frankly, I don’t think we’re doing as good a job with it as we could.  We need to find better ways to satisfy the needs of today’s homebuyers and sellers while finding better ways to improve the profitability of our organizations.  At the same time, we need to find ways to stay relevant and important to agents as well.  It’s not an easy task, but it’s critical that we start making some fundamental changes to our thinking and most importantly, our actions.”

This conference is intended to help stir up the leadership skills and abilities to lead our industry and our organizations to the next level of success.  Attendees will come away with tangible new ways to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their businesses, and most importantly, learn some new tools to demonstrate courageous leadership.

At last year’s AFIRE, Marilyn, with Denise Lones and Ann Chiasson, did a fantastic panel called “Lay Down Our Swords.” Sherry Chris, the CEO of Better Homes and Gardens, said it was the best panel she had ever seen. This year, Denise, Ann, and Marilyn will be tackling the subject of courageous leadership and what it takes to lead, even when the world around you is spinning out of control.
