Following #NARAnnual: Conference Wrap-up

November 11 2014

NARannualConf2014Today marked the final day of NAR Annual in New Orleans. As we write this, Realtors from across the U.S. and Canada are on their way home after 4+ days of educational sessions, events, giveaways, parties, beignets and po' boys (all the food pictures were seriously mouthwatering!).

As usual, we took to Twitter to follow the official conference hashtag, #NARannual, and the ongoing events. After all, the best reporters are often the attendees themselves. Although there were far too many great Tweets to include here, we've done our best to round up the best.
