2023 Tech & Trends

the new world of real estate

Friday 14th July 2023 – Leonda by the Yarra, Hawthorn
Conference Concept
RE-edge is a conference for showcasing the latest trends in the real estate industry. Presently, most of what is new involves some kind of technology so RE-edge naturally has an innovation and technology flavour. Our secondary theme is marketing because the tech often helps us reach our customers in innovative ways, particularly via social channels. The RE-edge presenters are real people working on, in or with the trends on show. RE-edge is for all real estate agents who want to learn how to work smarter.

The latest proptech

What are the apps and services used by successful agents and businesses and how is technology changing our daily lives in the real estate industry?

Best-practice trends

The classic way of doing things isn’t always the best. Discover how others are achieving similar or better results by tweaking their approach to agency practices, staff and management.

Motivation to change

Be inspired by the personal and real paths of those who have done things right and gain from their experience in learning about their mistakes and recovery.

Who should attend?

Short answer – everyone.

All real estate agents can benefit from this conference. RE-edge is all about embracing the often-simple tools, apps and methods that agents can use to attract more clients and turning them into your brand ambassadors.
In addition, the RE-edge speakers understand the demand for increased results without an increase in fees so working more efficiently – usually with technology – is a huge part of modern real estate training. Working smarter and not harder is the key and as a result, every team member in your agency can achieve more.
