Michael Burkhard, sales manager at Bray Real Estate in Grand Junction, attended the Council of Residential Specialists Sell-A-Bration in Phoenix.

Burkhard, who also serves as a first vice president with the CRS, was among 1,000 agents who attended the annual educational and networking conference. Speakers included Brad Inman, founder and publisher of the Inman News real estate publication, and Jon Meacham, former editor-in-chief of Newsweek and a Pulitzer Prize winning author.

“Attending this conference is always so inspiring to me,” Burkhard said. “All of the speakers and programs are top notch, and it’s an excellent venue to listen to what challenges are being faced in other parts of the country.”

Robert Bray, chief executive officer of Bray Real Estate, said Burkhard’s participation in CRS and the conference benefits the company. “It’s a huge benefit to our Bray agents to have our sales manager in national CRS leadership as he has access to the latest trends and is able to bring a broad perspective for our agents to pass along to their clients.”
