Invitation-Only Event | Friday, September 4, 2015 | 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

What dangers threaten your brokerage? What dangers threaten the real estate industry as a whole? In May of 2015, at the NAR Midyear Meeting, NAR released the D.A.N.G.E.R. Report, which identifies potential threats to real estate – to brokers, to agents, to the real estate association, and to the MLS.

Please join us on September 4th from 10:30 am until 1:00 pm for an invitation-only, candid roundtable discussion of the dangers facing our industry, facilitated by Michael Oppler (Senior Vice President, Broker Associate, Director of Career Development – Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty in Hackensack, New Jersey), Vice Chair of the NAR Strategic Thinking Committee, which commissioned the study and report.
