DMAR Digest | Week of September 6
FREE EVENT: Top Producer Panel (hosted through Zoom)
If you have ever wanted to get an exclusive look at how a top producer operates their business – this is the event for you. We have two rock star top-producers joining us on September 17th for a conversation moderated by DMAR CEO, Nobu Hata.
Spring Bengtzen, CEO and Owner of the Utah Life Real Estate Group & Associate Broker at REAL Broker LLC, and her team of 27 agents has already sold 259 units as of August 2021 and she is predicting a massive uptick in business. Join us as she shares what she’s learned about seller lead generation, selling homes and streamlining operations.
Our other panelist, Jessica Northrop, is the #1 individual agent at Compass Denver (Closed Volume, 2020) and one of the top producing brokers in the Denver area. She has over 25 years of experience and is ready to share it all from business planning and technology to pain points and streamlining her business.
This is a FREE event you can’t afford to miss!
