As a seasoned REALTOR and president of the local Women’s Council chapter, I’m thrilled to share insights from the recent National Conference. This collaborative event marked a pivotal moment in our organization’s history, leaving us energized and equipped to navigate the future of real estate.
Mastering Negotiation with “Ask Like an Auctioneer”
The conference kicked off with a captivating keynote by Dia Bondi, renowned for her empowering “Ask Like an Auctioneer” initiative. Her session, “Never Leaving Money or Opportunities on the Table,” was a masterclass in negotiation. Bondi seamlessly blended the assertiveness of an auctioneer with the finesse of a seasoned negotiator, equipping us with invaluable tools to maximize our potential in every deal.

J’aime Nowak, another esteemed speaker, delivered an insightful presentation titled “Bringing Calm to Chaos.” She delved into practical strategies for reducing stress, optimizing efficiency, and ultimately, achieving more, while navigating the demands of our high-pressure field. Nowak’s message served as a timely reminder of the crucial role self-care plays in sustaining success in our industry.
Celebrating 85 Years of Trailblazing: Honoring the Legacy of Women’s Council
This conference also marked a monumental occasion: the 85th anniversary of the Women’s Council. The session “Honor the Legacy of Women’s Council” was an emotional and powerful tribute to the pioneers who paved the way for our success. We celebrated the contributions of certified networks, PMN designees, and Leadership Institute graduates, all of whom have played critical roles in advancing our profession.
