PSAR Virtual Property Pitch & Town Hall Meetings

San Diego Realtor Town Hall meeting hoste by PSAR


San Diego REALTOR® Town Hall meetings are
changing dates and times
to bring back our property Pitch Sessions.

City Pitch, Rally and Ride Too, and Rally & Ride have returned!  We’ve transformed each of these popular marketing venues to virtual formats. And each one will be enhanced by industry updates from PSAR's CEO.

Here’s the new virtual marketing meeting agenda:
     â€˘ Networking with the PSAR CEO: 8:45 am – 9:00 am
     â€˘ Brief hyper-local market update by our Realtor Facilitators*
     â€˘ Pitch properties and buyers’ needs.
     â€˘ Industry updates by PSAR's CEO and other industry experts.

When the COVID-19 crisis first hit, disrupting our lives and our businesses, PSAR moved quickly to organize Town Hall Meetings as platforms on which to inform our members of the massive changes that were taking place daily. 

In the weeks that followed, our industry has adjusted to a new normal.  Real Estate is deemed essential, but with that designation comes responsibility and concern for the welfare of all. Let's practice those traits by sharing available inventory and solving our listing challenges together with old friends and new.
