Several agents from Prudential Gallo, REALTORS attended the Prudential Real Estate Annual Convention in Las Vegas Nevada. The two-day conference was held at the Caesar’s Palace Resort on March 11-12. The annual conference hosts approximately 4,000 – 5,000 real estate professionals from the Prudential network each year, and offers world-class speakers, education and entertainment. In addition, annual sales awards are given to the top performing agents in Prudential’s network of over 50,000 sales professionals.

Prudential Gallo agents attending the convention were Lee Ann Wilkinson, Carrie Gentile, Erin Marsh and Laurie Bronstein of the Lewes office; Barbara Morales, Tricia Ratner and Andrew Ratner of the Rehoboth Beach office; and Mary Cerami of the Bethany Beach office. The convention was highlighted by national speakers Craig and Marc Keilburger of Free The Children Foundation and Dr. Peter H. Diamandis of the X-Prize Foundation. The convention also offered educational classes on marketing, social media, technology, and best sales practices. The conclusion of the convention was highlighted by a performance by Celine Dion.

Receiving special awards at the convention was the Lee Ann Wilkinson Group of Prudential Gallo’s Lewes office. The group earned the Pinnacle Award, which recognizes the top ten sales professionals in its entire network of over 50,000 sales profesionals. Lee Ann and her team were named the #8 sales team for closed residential units. This is the third time that the Lee Ann Wilkinson Group has won this award. In addition, the Lee Ann Wilkinson Group also received Prudential’s 20-year Legend Award, given to agents who have earned the top tier of sales awards for 20 years.

Prudential Gallo Vice President Andrew Ratner said, “Winning the Pinnacle Award is a prestigious honor that few achieve, so I applaud the Lee Ann Wilkinson Group for such an incredible accomplishment. As a Legend Award winner, the Lee Ann Wilkinson Group joins an elite group of sales professionals who have consistently ranked in the top 2 percent of the entire Prudential network. It shows the Group’s hard work and dedication over a long period of time, and that truly speaks to the trust they have earned from their clients over the years."

“All in all, the convention was truly spectacular,” added Ratner. “We all learned many new marketing techniques and we bring back a lot of energy and enthusiasm. In addition to seeing Lee Ann earn her awards, we also learned that one of our top sales professionals displays extraordinary courage, as Laurie Bronstein “bungee-jumped” from the top of the Stratosphere Hotel an incredble 850’ to the ground. As well as being a top sales agent, this feat exemplifies how she takes the extra step in her approach to her business and her life.”
