Dinner Dates with Your REALTOR® Colleagues on Monday, April 8th

Enjoy a night out for some great food and networking!  Whether you’re new to the industry, want to expand your network, or just need dinner – this is a great way to connect with other REALTORS®! CAR will make reservations for parties up to 10 people at various restaurants within a short drive (or walk) from the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center, offering an expansive selection of foods and price points for you to choose from.

Here’s How It Works:

  • These special reservations are only available to those who pre-register for this additional networking event during the registration check-out process.
  • After you RSVP for the Dinner Dates event, you will receive an email in mid-March to select which restaurant reservation you would like to join, along with the meet-up location and time.
  • Don’t leave your REALTOR® colleagues in a lurch-they want to meet you. If you need to cancel, please do so no later than March 29 to avoid the dreaded “table for one.”
  • Each diner is responsible for their own meals and drinks.

This highly interactive workshop will teach you how to become a power lister by learning to anticipate common objections during the listing process and how to respond to them. Through use of role-play and class discussions, you will leave the workshop with new strategies to obtain a listing and the confidence to try them.  REGISTER HERE
