This week my travels first found me in West Orange, New Jersey, celebrating Jordan Baris Inc, REALTORS® Real Living with members of our HSF Affiliates team, including Allan Dalton, CEO of Real Living Real Estate; Tricia Kobos, manager, Business Consulting; Teresa Palacios Smith, vice president of Diversity and Inclusion; Rosalie Warner, vice president of Network Services; Champ Claris, director of Franchise Sales and of course, Ken Baris, president of Jordan Baris Inc, REALTORS® Real Living. The 67-year-old, full-service brokerage is led by Baris, one of RISMedia’s 2019 Real Estate Newsmakers, and will be a fantastic addition to our Real Living network.
This week my travels find me in San Diego, attending the T3 Summit at Loews Coronado Bay Resort. The T3 Summit is an invite-only mastermind and think tank for residential real estate industry leaders. The lineup of speakers and session topics is always excellent year after year, and surprisingly, kept under wraps until the very day of the event.
This week my travels find me back in Hawaii for another close friend’s wedding. (Congratulations, Justin Moles and Natalie Ventimiglia! On a personal note, I’ve been friends with Justin’s dad since third grade.) In this tropical island setting, surrounded by love and aloha, I’m reminded about the value at the very center of the value pyramid: friendship.
