Excellent presentation allowing myself & other Brokers to obtain a very good, up to date to market activity past year, and what to look for future year(s) 2019 - 2020. Market activity for five (5 ) distinct categories of real estate, of which two (2) categories help me to earn my living. The remaining three (3) categories permit me to be aware of past, current & potential future trends to assist my clients and customers with their research. And, I get all of this information in approximately five (5) hours, the chance to interact with peers, an information book to take with me and CE credit! Thank you!

For the office portion only Baton Rouge was included. I was hoping they would include the surrounding areas as well. Most of us cover all of EBR as well as Ascension, Livingston and WBR.

This was my first time to attend Trends! I’m a residential agent more than a rental agent or commercial agent, but my partner & I left Trends & went straight to a listing where we actually referred to the seminar and were able to use what the economist had projected of what’s to come. It gave us confidence in our presentation for sure!

I was sitting in the back and some of the speakers weren’t able to be heard whatsoever. They spoke too softly and the mike wasn’t loud enough. I was sitting near the soundboard guy and he said it was the speakers fault. Very frustrating! I could hear the guest speaker, Eliot Eisenberg, and the Appraiser just great. They put forth an effort to speak clearly and loudly. Also, some of the speakers didn’t introduce themselves nor say which company they were with. Not good!

This was my first time attending Trends. I am in Residential Real Estate. I really didn't enjoy the first 2 presentations; although some info was informative, it just seemed very slow. The Economist was incredible. He brought the audience to life after the first few presentations. I was looking forward to the Residential RE the most, but I didn't enjoy how it was presented. I was looking for discussion about all of the incredible new construction that's popping up everywhere; discussion about the market, what other people are experiencing, etc.. not strictly interior design stuff. Although staging/interior design is somewhat important, I just don't think it should have been the ENTIRE conversation.

The "morning show" format segment for residential real estate was not helpful at all. I look forward to TRENDS for data and raw market data for forecasting the state of the various market segments. Sitting through a half hour listening to design tips (which were all various arrangements of a white couch, white backsplash, and rustic accents) was frustrating and a waste of time.
