Can't Contain Excitement: WCR Hill Country Happenings
Women’s Council of Realtors, Hill Country had an amazing Economic Development event in February. Our area is growing by leaps and bounds! We invited Holly Covington, Marketing and Research Director for New Braunfels Economic Development Corporation, Josh Schneuker, Executive Director, Seguin Economic Development Corporation, and Kevin Burke, Economic Development & Downtown Administrator at the City of San Marcos. They each spent around 20 minutes talking about the population growth of their communities and current, future, and proposed residential developments. We were also educated about future retail and mixed-use developments. There is a lot of excitement in this tri-city area about all the building in the area. We had over 100 Women’s Council members, Realtor® guests, Strategic Partners and National Affiliates in attendance.
Next month, on March 14, 2018, we are welcoming Bruce Gardner to New Braunfels for our first Industry Event! It will be held at the Courtyard Marriott, 750 N. IH 35, New Braunfels, TX 78130. We will have a breakfast buffet and networking from 8:30 am to 9:00 am. Bruce will speak on “The Seven Big Trends Changing Real Estate Today” from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Bruce is a 20+ year veteran of the Real Estate Industry and has more than 30 years of sales experience. He is a well-known speaker who is very engaging, humorous, and informative without being formal. He was named the Entrepreneur of the Year in 2013 by the National Women’s Council of Realtors. He’s also written two bestselling books for the real estate industry - Seven Styles: How to Design Your Real Estate Career of Success and Significance and Words: What to Say When You Don't Know What to Say.
