Last year I launched my own company, BlueRoof Real Estate (and BlueRoof.com) right before InMan Connect in San Francisco. The president of my company, Mike Shehan, and I went to Inman Connect to meet people, learn, and to get our name out in the industry. We had some fun experiences and met some great people. It allowed us build relationships in a way we could not have done otherwise- for example we were able to meet and speak with Mike Arrington of TechCrunch, Pete Flint of Trulia, Glenn Kelman of Redfin, and Rich Barton of Zillow all within a couple of days (we also met some pretty crazy Canadian guys who we went out partying with, but that’s another story).
I encourage everyone in the real estate industry to attend, sit in on some sessions, and meet some fun people. It’s a great way to build relationships and have a San Francisco vacation, and it’s a tax write-off.
InMan Connect is August 1-3 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. (Register)
