"I went with expectations of networking, which were more than exceeded. I did not expect to learn so much about the tools that Sotheby’s Realty has to offer and how that can change my business. Not only did corporate share great business practices and tools but the attendees in the audience of various breakouts shared as well. - Ohana!!!"

"The GNE was Refreshing and rewarding in every way! From guest speaker Daniel Lammare of Cirque du Soleil to break out panel sessions and networking events. It was time well spent! What a great networking opportunity to win a trip to Hawaii! To enter the drawing, All SIR realtors presented their business cards to all Hawaii realtors who wore flower lei."
"Meeting and collaborating with agents all over the world was extremely powerful! I feel empowered bringing home new relationships, ideas, and tools that will propel our office, agents and client’s properties across the world. Hawaii Affiliates had the spotlight when one of the key note speakers Wendy Purvey, Chief Marketing Officer used the word “Ohana” in the opening of her speech to describe our agents across the world as being extended family. Her closing was also spot on with a big MAHALO! The spirit of Hawaii was surely shared throughout the conference."
"I am continually floored by the generosity of information and willingness to collaborate within our brand. Agents that have spent years refining a listing presentation or any aspect of their business and are willing to share that with the rest of us out of the goodness of their Heart and the faith in their Brand."
"Sotheby's International Realty is a global ohana. Attending the Global Networking Event, crystalizes the fact that as a part of Sotheby's International Realty, we are a network of over 17,000 of the best real estate professionals worldwide. The GNE provides an excellent opportunity to learn best practices from our peers in this ever changing world of marketing and technology."
