Every year at MRE | AP, we gather as an organization to celebrate our agents’ successes, talk about where we’ve been, and discuss where we’re headed. This year’s Kickoff Meeting was highly anticipated, as the news of change spread throughout the company. The presentations didn’t disappoint – following a plethora of agent awards, the MRE | AP Rebrand was announced and the new logos, signs, and company swag were revealed.

We held this year’s Kickoff Meeting in the Garden Room of Tuscarora Mill. It was a beautiful, light-filled setting, with plenty of room for our large, excited group.

Our lovely event planner, Hunt Country Events, coordinated a classy and simple spread, perfect for the occasion.

Scott Buzzelli and Peter Pejacsevich, real estate partners and owners of MRE | AP, talked at length about our accomplishments last year, their goals for 2019, all of the changes happening in the real estate industry, and how MRE | AP is rising to the challenge.

Scott Buzzelli discussed the changes that companies are making to stay current in the shifting real estate market, not only in technology, but in marketing efforts and agent support.

A taste of old and new: our friends at RMS Mortgage gifted us with a framed copy of our historic Middleburg signs alongside the new company logos.

A spread of company swag provided a preview of products available to help agents market their listings and business.
