“The supernova is the explosion of the old ways of doing real estate,” Inman founder Brad Inman said to a crowd of eager real estate professionals at Inman Connect New York. “It’s exploding how brokerage is done. It’s exploding how agents behave.

“It’s getting rid of tired practices, tired brands, legacy habits, people driven by greed not good. And people not doing anything about the fact that, for too long, we’ve had a protractive, long, difficult transaction of buying a home that needs to change — that is exploding.”

We are on a new path of exciting changes and opportunity, with real estate agents and brokers at the forefront. Our industry is ready for those who are willing to uncross their arms and embrace these changes.
