Congratulations to our Ascend Graduates!


We are excited to announce that three more members of TeamERA have recently graduated from Ascend: The Executive Leadership ExperienceSM! This program is available exclusively to Realogy brand-affiliated brokerage owners who are in the process of grooming a successor to lead their company. This next generation of leaders will fast forward their agencies’ strategies into continued success in the future. We wanted to share some thoughts from our most recent grads, Jeff Taylor, Brad Lawson and Lacey Merrick Conway, as they reflected on their experiences and how they will be turning their insights into actions.

“Having the opportunity to evaluate our personal strengths and the strengths of others in our organizations, thanks to Ascend, has been very helpful. The program has empowered me to take more ownership of the direction in which I’d like to see our organization move and grow, and set me and my team up for success.” – Jeff Taylor, ERA Key Realty Services

“Participating in Ascend opened my eyes to the unique challenges facing real estate professionals around the country, and to opportunities that my team and I should be taking advantage of within our own market. I developed relationships I’m certain will be long-lasting and am already seeing the benefits of this new network of driven professionals – we collectively are a resource to each other.” – Brad Lawson, ERA Show Place Realty

“I am so honored to be an Ascend alumna. It was truly thrilling to be a part of such a well-laid out course that pulled top talent from across the industry. I particularly enjoyed the panels and open conversation sessions that allowed us to learn from each other and bond as a group, and I look forward to leveraging this network in the future. – Lacey Merrick Conway, Latter & Blum ERA Powered

Congratulations to all of our graduates – we can’t wait to see where you take your teams next!
