Pitch Battle at the 2022 Leadership Summit

The purpose of the Leadership Summit Pitch Battle is to offer a platform for Leadership Summit attendees to share the value that the REALTOR® brand has brought to their customers, communities, and/or their associations. By sharing these testimonials, the Pitch Battle hopes to inspire other Leadership Summit attendees to feel empowered by the REALTOR® difference, position themselves as experts in their local communities, and achieve their real estate ambitions.
