“The annual Global Networking Event provides a unique value to our firm and agents,” said Donald D.

We also had the opportunity to learn more about the real estate business worldwide through informative breakout sessions on a variety of topics.”
The event was held October 24 to 27 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Miami, Fla. The keynote speaker was Aron Ralston, the inspiration for the film “127 Hours.”
