Agents face an exciting year with political uncertainty finally coming to an end and housing legislation hopefully now taking priority. The annual Conference provides a great opportunity for agents to learn from peers and brush up on their knowledge ahead of what is shaping up to be a positive year for the entire industry.

We have an impressive line-up of speakers confirmed so I can’t wait to welcome everyone next month.
