Jason, Justin and Jim visited St. Petersburg, Florida from February 7th-10th to join their Real Living Real Estate peers from 37 other states. There was learning, networking and even some fun mixed in.

On Day 1, Jason and Justin were asked to speak to the crowd about the story of our Relocation Department winning BGRS’s highest award in less than five years. The night was capped off with a welcome reception at a nearby venue where connections old and new were made and everyone shared the same brand.

Day 2’s morning was started by the Real Living Fun Run where our team was lucky to run in 67 degree weather instead of the below freezing temperatures we were experiencing locally in DC. Informative sessions from HSF CEO Gino Blefari, Real Living President Bob McAdams, and new COO Allan Dalton won everyone’s attention for the rest of the day. The guys even snuck away on Day 3 for a short walk to the Salvador Dali museum, which surely did not disappoint.

We always love an award ceremony where we win; and this was no exception. RLAH was awarded several top honors, including the Top Company in the entire franchise. Overall, the team was very impressed with St. Petersburg for its laid back atmosphere, great weather and walkable downtown with a plethora of restaurants, bars and shopping. But of course, the networking and learning with our extended Real Living family was really the highlight of the trip.
