Plymouth — An ever-improving economy and recent company advancements were the hot topics at Jack Conway, Realtor’s Mid-Year Awards breakfast at the Plymouth Radisson last week.
Hundreds of agents and managers from Jack Conway, Realtor’s 42 offices heard from Conway VP and Counsel Jay Chaisson, who told them, “This is still such a great time to buy real estate, and the tools Conway is rolling out to help buyers and sellers will make the customer experience the best in the industry.”
These tools, including a brand new Web site, which debuted in June, and new technology tools introduced at the rally, are obviously having an effect at the 53-year old company, said CEO Carol Bulman.
“Great things have happened over the first six months of 2010,” said Bulman. “Our recruiting effort has doubled and our market share is improving in most areas. We have a lot to be proud of.”
The breakfast was also a chance for Conway to recognize its agents who were Tops in Listings and Sales from the first six months of 2010. Earning the honor of Tops Companywide in both categories was Beth Van der Veer of Conway-Mattapoisett.
“Beth is a true sales champion and sets a great example for all of our agents,” said Chairman Jack Conway. “Not only is she a wonderful Realtor, but a special person who really cares for her clients. That truly makes Beth No. 1.”
Taunton’s Morgan Neill, a second-year student at The Boston Conservatory, kicked off the event by singing the National Anthem. And Conway Executive Dick Cahill presented the company’s Buyer Bonus Program to the audience. Technology Director Toni Manning also unveiled new web-based presentations for the agents.
Jack Conway Realtor, established in 1956, has 42 sales offices from Swampscott to Cape Cod. The company includes a commercial and relocation division and a full-service lending arm, Conway Home Mortgage, an affiliate of Wells Fargo.
