Events

Staying engaged and informed is extremely important, and we make an effort to connect everyone in our industry to the tools and resources they need to succeed. Every year we host a conference in each state we represent: California, Arizona, and Nevada. These annual meetings offer updates in the housing industry, legislative changes, market conditions and more. It also offers a chance to collaborate with everyone in our network, putting faces to names and meeting like-minded individuals who want to make housing better for everyone.
