Missouri REALTORS®

We recently concluded a successful Spring Business Conference in Kansas City with nearly 500 Missouri REALTORS® members, affiliates, and sponsors in attendance! Following governance meetings and educational offerings on Tuesday, members participated in the Opening General Session that afternoon, which featured keynote speaker Nick Krautter, REALTOR® and author of the Golden Handoff. Nick discussed business planning amidst industry changes. View the recording

Wednesday began with governance meetings and additional educational opportunities, followed by the Emerging Issues Forum. During this time, members heard from Mitchell Skinner, Attorney and Managing Member at Larson Skinner, and Robert Campbell, General Counsel and Vice President of Risk Management for Missouri REALTORS®, on what changes the NAR settlement could bring, what isn’t changing, and sharable resources to help REALTORS® stay up to date on this issue. (As noted in pre-conference materials, this session was not live-streamed or recorded). 

Immediately following the Emerging Issues Forum, conference attendees heard from candidates seeking the position of NAR Director during the NAR Director Candidate Forum. I’d like to congratulate Matt Becker of St. Charles REALTORS® for being elected during Thursday’s Board of Directors meeting to serve as an NAR Director in 2025!

Wednesday concluded with the Robert W. Borgmann RPAC Auction and dinner, where a record-setting $107,500 was raised to support our industry! A huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated.

The conference concluded Thursday morning with our Board of Directors meeting. To learn more about the actions of the board, view April 25, 2024, Board of Directors meeting minutes

I’d like to thank you for taking time from your business to join like-minded REALTORS® from around the state to discuss industry trends and developments within the state of Missouri. We look forward to seeing you at the Fall Business Conference, September 24-26, 2024, in Branson, MO.
