“It was an honor to be the co-host at the Ragatz Conference this year,” remarked Keith Cox, CEO of Resort Equities, “especially during this period of change in our industry. There will be some groundbreaking new business models emerging as we enter this new era and we are excited to work with our partners, clients and other industry participants to be an active part of that evolution. We were particularly excited to launch the Fractional Listing Service at the conference, providing a free MLS-style listing service for fractional properties and private residence clubs.” (Keith Cox, Resort Equities)
“With the perspective of having attending many conferences over the years, I came away very impressed with the quality of the Ragatz Fractional & Resort Real Estate Conference. The presentations were high quality with great take-away content. The networking opportunities were very well organized and effective.” (Rick Norton, Norton Consulting)
“Congratulations to the Ragatz team on a well-planned and successfully executed conference. I found the program content and participant delivery to be informative and rich with “take home” value. It was an engaging, multi-disciplinary, collaborative and reflective experience.” (Jim Chaffin, Chaffin Light Management)
“I have been trying to get the Ragatz Conference for many years and I’m so glad I finally did. The agenda was well thought out, creating questions on the 1st day, then helping to find the answers on the 2nd day. The speakers were very knowledgeable without using too much industry jargon and the best part was how helpful and willing everyone was to share their ideas and knowledge in the networking time between sessions. I hope we will have as much fun (and learn just as much) at Ragatz 2013!” (Joanne Sardini, Edgartown Residence Club)
“This year’s Ragatz Conference was an ideal venue for one on one personal conversations with clients, consultants and other resort real estate industry professionals. The conference was characterized by a level of candor and frankness about challenges and opportunities that gave participants usable information that is practically valuable.” (Steven Peterson, Ballard Spahr)
