Leveraging Market Stats Webinar with Miami Realtors

Miami Realtors has a phenomenal webinar series that is hosted by our VP of Communications, Chris Umpierre, and a different Miami Realtors Leader every month. I had the honor of co-hosting the webinar for the third time! We went over the most recent available market statistics and dissected what was happening in our South Florida Real Estate Market. As a real estate broker who helps people buy, sell and invest in Miami real estate, it is important to marry my experience in the marketplace with the overall sales data for our specific market in order to have full understanding and context on the market in order to properly advise our clients and customers. When it comes to real estate, ignorance is NOT bliss. The more we know, the more we are able to make knowledgeable and strategic decisions in our businesses and protect our customers while transacting. I pride myself in always being a student of the industry and I encourage my fellow real estate professionals to do the same. It is how we remain knowledgeable, sharp and informative resulting in providing quality service and always being of value to our clients and customers.

If you missed the live webinar, you can watch the recording here in this blog post. Whether you are a buyer, seller, looking to invest, a real estate professional, or someone just curious as to what is happening in the South Florida real estate market, you will find massive value in this webinar.

I had the honor and privilege of being installed as the 2022 Miami YPN President! There is still a lot of work to be done to ensure that our real estate leaders across the country at every level accurately represent the communities that they serve. So, I want to thank @themiamirealtors for giving this young, Black woman born of Haitian Immigrant parents the opportunity to serve as the 2022 President for Miami YPN at the nation's largest local Realtor association, and let’s admit, the best Realtor Association in the world. Although I’m the one on this stage, this is so much bigger than me. So, thank you. 🙏🏾🙌🏾

I look forward to serving alongside the other great leaders who are also installed -  Fernando Arencibia Jr., Brad Westover, Michael D Hinton, Enrique Teran and David Dweck. I’d also like to thank all of our loyal customers, agents, and affiliates for believing in us, my friends and family for supporting me.

It has been an honor, privilege and a blessing to be serving on the Miami YPN board since 2019. Serving alongside other professionals who are just as passionate about our association and our industry as a whole makes this even more of a fulfilling experience! As the 2022 Miami YPN President, the goal is to expand on our national global connections and relationships, improve and develop new educational curriculum and events to help with professional development, and to strategically collaborate with all of the other boards to provide even more value to our Realtor members. Together we are better, and I can't wait to see what our boards and associations accomplish together this year!
