There is empirical evidence that no country has ever experienced democracy without strong homeownership
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2011
On October 6, Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie San Francisco Real Estate hosted a delegation of Russian real estate agents who traveled to the San Francisco Bay Area to learn about how real estate is transacted in the United States. The delegation is participating in the Effective Management Program hosted by the Lamorinda Sunrise Club, Lafayette, Orinda and Walnut Creek Rotary Clubs.
Ed Krafchow, CEO and chairman of BHG Mason-McDuffie spoke about how real estate exchanges hands in the United States, from title insurance to mortgage, and also discussed the health of the market. The delegates learned about Mason-McDuffie’s leading edge technology platform from CIO Dave Wilson, the company’s marketing approach and toolset from VP of New Media and Agent Resources Cathy Harrington, and the company’s growth strategy from David Gardner, president of Network Partners. EVP Keith Robinson spoke about company structure and operations.
“There is empirical evidence that no country has ever experienced democracy without strong homeownership. The American dream is damaged but still very alive. Homeownership in America is still a sought-after commodity and will emerge from this depressed economic environment stronger than ever. Realtors help people complete the American Dream,” says Krafchow on homeownership in the US.
