Today was our Women’s Council of Realtors 5th annual Trade Expo at the Torrance Marriott Hotel and I’m happy to report that it was a huge success! Not only did I have a great time in supporting the event but I had a blast attending as a local Realtor collecting valuable information from all the amazing vendors and spotlight speakers. My favorite part about the day was all the networking I got to do, brainstorming ideas on how we all work together to better serve our clients and our community. Today was a great reminder of the importance of networking, mixing, and mingling. So if you are ever looking for something fun to do in the South Bay or a way to connect with leading professionals in our community please check out my friend’s website that lists all the upcoming events. It also works as a platform to promote your event! www.mixagogo.com
