If you work in any facet of real estate, then you should attend RE BarCamp St. Louis!

While many of the attendees will be real estate agents, we expect to have lots of people in real estate related industries too.

  • Lenders
  • Title companies
  • Appraisers
  • Inspectors
  • Rehabbers
  • Investors
  • Property managers
  • Real estate technology vendors

You should also consider attending if you work in a business that could benefit real estate agents. Maybe you sell office supplies. Maybe you design websites. Maybe you have a restaurant where an agent might sit with clients to write a contract while grabbing lunch.

Get creative.

How could your business benefit by being connected to real estate agents? How could you benefit real estate professionals by sharing your skills with them?

Maybe you don’t work in real estate or have a product that real estate agents need. That’s ok. If you like houses, commercial properties, technology, social media, free training or great networking, then you should join us!

Just remember, all of the training sessions will have a real estate spin to them!

Selling Not Allowed:

I know I just suggested that if you have a service or product that could be a benefit to real estate agents, then you should consider attending.

Just remember, the format and culture of a BarCamp means that this is about networking and education and sharing. If you do a presentation and it is about your specific product, rather than how your industry as a whole can add value, you will probably have people walk out on your session and might just lose more business than you gain.

BarCamp etiquette is that there is no pitching your services or selling your product. You are welcome to tell people what you do, and if someone asks you about your services, then go for it. The best way to get business from attending a BarCamp is to simply network. Bring lots of business cards. Show people your smarts. Show them how helpful you can be. Show them that you are someone they want to work with.

Still trying to figure out how you can get your literature into REBCSTL so everyone will want to hire you?

Sign up to be a sponsor.

We’ll talk about who you are on this website, you’ll get recognized at the event AND there will be a table where you can leave some literature for people to pick up. Sponsorships start at $100.

Or offer us some door prize giveaways. Everyone seems to stop and listen when freebies are being given away.

Restaurant gift certificates, free social media/blogging training, computer tune-ups, graphic design, photo shoots…all GREAT giveaways!
