Summer Summit Prepares Future Real Estate Leaders

Bordentown, NJ (August 30, 2017)—Stephanie Bellanova, Broker Associate and Partner of ERA Central Realty Group in Bordentown, NJ, recently attended ERA Real Estate’s 2017 Young Leaders Network Summer Summit, the 6th annual elite educational event, hosted in Columbia, South Carolina by ERA Wilder Realty. Attendees represented many of the most successful ERA organizations across the U.S.

Over the three-day long event August 2-4, Bellanova and 27 Young Leaders participated in team-building and professional development exercises centered around the theme of growth, from technological growth through the Zap platform, to social media and marketing growth, to the growth of recruitment and agent development programs.
In addition to the working seminars, attendees were also treated to a private session in the South Carolina State House, where they met with Governor Henry McMaster, who took the leaders through a history of his state as seen through the lens of real estate development.

“The best part of the Summer Summit, other than the chance to meet my peers from across the country, was being able to communicate directly with some of ERA’s top leaders and learn from their mistakes and successes on their path to growth,” Bellanova said. “It was an invaluable opportunity to learn about market expansion, digital innovation, and how ERA Central can grow as a company.”

The Young Leader’s Network was launched in 2011 as a way for ERA Real Estate to bring together ERA professionals showing highly-engaged and collaborative characteristics early in their careers, to further develop their leadership skills. The members are mostly made up of Gen Y or millennials who leverage this supportive community to discuss overcoming challenges and formulating business solutions. “This Young Leader’s Network Summer Summit was our sixth annual gathering, and it was more collaborative, innovative and meaningful than ever,” said Sue Yannaccone, President & Chief Executive Officer of ERA Real Estate. “Our Young Leaders are the future of this company and this industry, and it was inspiring to see them sharing knowledge, collaborating and breaking down siloes to make sure they all benefit from one another’s diverse set of experiences. We’re so proud to continue to grow this foundational program for our business and for tomorrow’s real estate leaders.”
