Connect. Innovate. Lead. That was the theme of Houlihan Lawrence’s recent real estate event held at The Westchester Marriot in Tarrytown on the afternoon of June 14th.
Approximately 600 Houlihan Lawrence agents from Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties gathered to network, as well as share ideas and information with each other. In addition to Realtors, there were many vendors whose presence provided an additional layer of interest by offering information about their products and services.

Opening remarks in the grand ballroom were made by CEO, Stephen Meyers immediately followed by COO, Chris Meyers, who addressed the audience with a presentation featuring the Top Ten reasons Houlihan Lawrence was unique and special. Not surprising was the number one reason cited for making Houlihan Lawrence the area’s market leader – OUR AGENTS. Our agents dominate the rankings of top agents by production, they're pillars of their communities and one could argue they're the most connected agents in the Region.

Participants were then invited to attend educational workshops designed to help them learn, utilize, share, preview and take advantage of new tools, techniques and strategies to better promote themselves and their clients’ homes in today’s real estate marketplace.
With a 1:40 pm start, the workshops ended promptly at 4:00 pm, allowing for further networking at the cocktail party. Not to be missed, the party offered everyone a chance to relax, socialize and recap the day’s events while enjoying the passed hors d’oeuvres, a wide variety of tasty treats and beverages. Numerous prizes, donated by our vendor partners, were raffled off towards the end of the afternoon. Lucky winners took home a variety of gift certificates and gift baskets. The grand prizes were three IPad2 tablets, provided by Thoroughbred Title, Thoroughbred Mortgage and Houlihan Lawrence.
