Real Estate Next 2007 is produced by Ron Roel of Roel Resources LLC; Laura Koss-Feder of Koss-Feder Associates; and Richard Levine, President of the New York Real Estate Institute. The three conferences were developed after the debut of last fall’s First Annual Real Estate Next conference, an information-packed event that gathered top decision-makers—real estate brokers and agents, builders, mortgage bankers, public officials, economists, housing advocates and other industry experts—at the Long Island Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Uniondale to talk about the state of the Island’s  real estate market.

This year, through the New York Real Estate Institute, we’re pleased to be offering 5 hours of Continuing Education credits for real estate professionals
Fee for Half-Day Conference I: $45
