Real estate is one of the only industries in which independent, privately owned companies compete head-to-head with Fortune 500 heavyweights — and, in many markets, win and thrive. But being an indie broker isn’t always a walk in the park. As the broker-owner of your own enterprise, you have to be able to do a little bit of everything … and there’s no franchise name to lean on or resources to help you along your way.

Is it worth it? How do the successful indies do it? Where are they putting their effort, what are they ignoring and how are they managing to recruit and retain the best talent in the market? Join moderators Thaddeus Wong and Kendyl Young (successful indie brokers themselves!) at the Indie Broker Summit, taking place as part of the week-long education, programming and networking at Inman Connect San Francisco.

You’ll hear from some of the most successful players in the business — both indie brokers and franchise executives — who will talk about how they’ve carved out their niches and how they vigorously defend their corners of the market.

Kendall Butler, who used her data-driven previous work experience in a completely different field to help her differentiate herself in her market, will talk about identifying your unique value proposition in a panel with eXp World Holdings CEO Glenn Sanford. Krista Mashore and Chris Rediger will discuss which tech tools they use to elevate their business (and why their competitors haven’t yet caught on). Erica Ramus will disclose how you transition out of production and into your new role as a real estate company leader. Sean Becker and Tiffany McQuaid will share their experiences with building a brokerage that supports real estate teams, leading to a win-win for everybody. And Loren Brill, who has nothing to do with real estate but makes the most amazing cookie dough, will talk about building a brand that sticks.

Whether you’re an aspiring or newbie indie broker, or you’ve been around the block a time or two — there’s something for you to learn from the same people fighting your fight. Don’t miss Indie Broker Summit, only at Inman Connect San Francisco.
