Summer Summit in Alabama Prepares Future Real Estate Leaders


Summer Summit Prepares Future Real Estate Leaders

Monroe Twp, NJ (August 19, 2016) — Stephanie Bellanova and Scott Lauri of ERA Central in Monroe Twp, NJ  recently attended ERA Real Estate’s 2016 Young Leaders Network Summer Summit, an elite educational event hosted in Birmingham, Alabama by ERA King Real Estate, a 2016 Circle of Light for Community Leadership Award Winner and Gene Francis Memorial Award for Top All-Around Company finalist. Attendees represented many of the most successful ERA organizations nationwide.

Over the three-day long event, Bellanova and Lauri along with 20+ other Young Leaders participated in team-building and motivational exercises focused on succession planning, growth and leveraging cutting-edge tools. Each attendee was personally selected for this exclusive networking opportunity by ERA’s senior leadership team, whose decision was based in large part on the management abilities each member has demonstrated at their respective companies.

Bellanova and Lauri were chosen as a member of the Young Leaders Network for their success in growing their company, “The Summer Summit provided the opportunity for the group of us to absorb insight from and ask questions of some of the top professionals in the ERA network,” Lauri said. “We talked about everything from market expansion and the latest in ERA’s resources to creating agent value and succession planning, and I look forward to adopting our collective learnings in the Central New Jersey market.”

“This year’s Young Leader’s Network Summer Summit marked our fifth annual gathering, and the amount of knowledge sharing and collaboration that took place was incredible,” said Sue Yannaccone, chief operating officer, ERA Franchise Systems LLC. “Our Young Leaders are eager to keep the real estate industry looking and moving forward, and we at ERA are proud to offer these opportunities for them to continue to do so.”

The Young Leader’s Network was launched in 2012 as a way for ERA Real Estate to bring together ERA professionals showing highly-engaged and collaborative characteristics early in their careers, in an effort to further develop their leadership skills. The members are mostly made up of Gen Y or millennials who leverage this supportive community to discuss overcoming challenges and formulating business solutions.

“We firmly believe in acting as partners for our young professionals, to help them grow and develop into the next generation of industry and ERA leaders,” said Everett King, broker/owner of ERA King Real Estate. “We were proud to be chosen as the hosts of the fifth annual Summer Summit and thoroughly enjoyed the discussion around real estate’s future that took place.”
