At Saturday’s General Session of the REALTORS® Conference & Expo, the group recognized the 1100 international attendees representing 60 countries. One representative from each country came out on stage as their country was called, waving their flag proudly. When the French member walked the stage and waved his country’s flag the entire audience stood and gave him a standing ovation in show of support for his country’s tragic attack on Friday. Real estate professionals at the convention heartily expressed their solidarity to their French colleagues. It was a heartwarming opening to the conference’s main event.
