Sarah’s attendance at the National Association of Realtors Convention in New Orleans!!

This year, the National Association of Realtors (representing over 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries) has held their Annual Convention in New Orleans, and I have been here since Thursday, November 4th attending various speaking engagements and trade shows that offer professional and personal development geared specifically to Realtors. I have found myself with renewed excitement for my chosen vocation and will be returning to Edmonton on Wednesday with even more excitement for my job!

When thinking of New Orleans, it is understandable for people to think of Katrina and the successful efforts to re-build the Crescent City since 2006. The NAR convention contributes to those efforts by bringing as much as $40 million in revenues during the conference period and demonstrating Realtors®’ commitment to rebuilding the city through volunteer projects such as Habitat for Humanity in the 9th Ward. Downtown, the French Quarter and the Garden District largely escaped flooding by Katrina, but the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (where the conference takes place) and nearby hotels had to be re-built, and are now bustling again in part due to the business the 20,000 Realtor attendees bring to nearby restaurants, shopping, and entainment during their stay. For my part, I have so far had an exciting time in the Big Easy and am more than happy to spend my entertainment dollars here. I’ve enjoyed the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, the street cars, a swamp tour, and the delicious Creole, Cajun and French food “Nawlins” has to offer and would recommend that anyone visit on their next holiday!

Stay tuned for my next blog and to hear more about New Orleans and the National Real Estate Convention!
