Industry Insider is a publication distributed by MIBOR every other Friday to Managing Brokers. 

Editor’s Note: As a reminder Broker Blast has been transitioned to “Industry Insider” to align more accurately with the changes to the terms “broker” and “managing broker” that resulted from the statewide broker transition. Industry Insider will continue to be sent to all managing brokers and branch managing brokers every two weeks. As always, the past issues will be archived on for easy reference.  

Managing Broker/Owner Meeting August 22

The next Managing Broker/Owner meeting – formerly known as the Broker/Owner Meeting – is slated for Friday, August 22 from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. Set your calendars and plan to attend. At this meeting, we will focus on listing syndication, the latest listing service technology and MIBOR’s strategic direction. 

  • Travis Saxton, Marketing and Technology Manager from REAL Trends, a leading national communications and consulting resource for the real estate industry, will present findings of a MIBOR-sponsored study to look at listing syndication performance across our marketplace. This will be real-time, aggregate level data you and can use immediately.
  • MIBOR Technology staff Tom Renkert and Karen McGuire will preview the new Matrix™ system, including a live demo of a similar market’s application. This will be your first chance to see what your new Matrix™ system will mean to you and your agents.
  • MIBOR President Janet and Jernigan and CEO Steve Sullivan will review the association’s direction as a result of the June Board of Director planning retreat.
Managing Broker/Owner meetings are an opportunity to bring the most relevant topics to you while providing a forum for questions and discussion that affect the membership. As always, there is no charge to attend, but reservations are required as seating is limited. To register, click here or e-mail Kari Smith.
