Speakers/Guests

Jerry Rossi – Everyone talks about change but no one changes the talk.

ROSSI DOES – and has from his blistering start of 10 listings in his first two weeks and 86 closings in his first 12 months in real estate, to his Future Paced presentations from every US State to Belize, Singapore to Prague and Amsterdam. Never satisfied with the status quo, he constantly updates his presentations at the speed of information to masterfully reframe the real estate industry of the evolving consumer’s needs, trending market demands, and fresh technology resources.

Now he’s spinning real estate education into the future with ‘Class in the Round’! Because ‘the Edutainer’ knows that people don’t buy what you do, they buy WHY you do it. And YOU are his WHY.

Others say, “He’s an imaginative humorist, investigative optimist, and peripheral visionary.”  He says, “We are all genius unrecognized by self.”

Jerry will be teaching Wednesday, September 30th from 9:30 am – 12:30pm and 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
