REALTOR Convention in the Big Easy

by Brad Hanks on November 8, 2010

The National Association of REALTORS annual convention just wrapped up in New Orleans today, and by all accounts it was a great success.

Even with a marginally improving economy, a large inventory of distressed properties and flagging consumer confidence, it seemed there was a feeling of optimism in the air in NOLA for NAR’s “NARdiGras” event. Whether it was optimism for an improving market or optimism for a shrinking number of REALTORS competing for fewer sales (the convention numbers have not been confirmed yet, but most observed that the event attendance was down from previous years), there seemed to be a more positive air about the convention center as attendees soaked up presentations and exhibits. And probably a fair share of Hurricanes.

If you were there, what did you think?  Were you happy with the education tracks and presentations?  Did you find the exhibit hall beneficial?  Did you get the same feeling of guarded optimism for real estate in the months ahead?

What did you think of NARdiGras?
