Last week five Corcoran employees embarked across the country to National Apartment Association’s annual education conference at one of our nation’s most beautiful vacation destinations, San Diego. Just like everyday throughout the calendar year, the weather was a picturesque 80 degrees and sunny without even a bit of humidity in the air. The only word fitting enough to describe San Diego is “perfect”.
Along with the fabulous attractions and atmosphere San Diego presented us, we were fortunate enough to interact with thousands of industry professionals working to educate us on a variety of subjects within the multifamily property management industry. Through motivational speeches, class workshops, seminars, and other meet-and-greet events we flexed our brain muscles and learned new traits, facts, and upcoming trends about the apartment industry. One of the greatest benefits in attending an NAA conference is interacting and hearing stories from our counterparts within the industry. Hearing the stories of leasing consultants and managers from all different regional demographics throughout the country gives us insight and guidance in how to handle any situation of any different magnitude.
I think we can speak for thousands who attended the conference that the biggest thrill was hearing the inspirational words of Sir Richard Branson. One of the greatest and most respected business leaders and innovators over the last half-century, Sir Richard shared his intellect on the crowd and educated us on the importance of strong relationships between employers and their employees. Communicating and rewarding your employees as an employer are of the utmost importance when trying to run a successful business. There is no doubt everyone who left the conference will have the words of Sir Richard echoing in their daily operations.
We want to thank NAA and their sponsors for putting on what was an absolutely fabulous three day event in beautiful San Diego. We are already looking forward to next year when we hit the mile high city of Denver!
