It’s safe to say that REIMAGINE 2018 was a success.

On February 1, we invited agents and staff from San Diego to Santa Barbara to join us for an exciting and motivational day filled with incredible networking, exciting guest speakers, and new tools that will benefit agents, buyers, and sellers.

Cabernet pride

Cabernet pride was out in full force starting at 11:00 a.m. Thursday morning. 1,200+ agents showed up in style, some arriving in luxury buses, posing for photos on the black carpet under the Cabernet-colored banners and the black and gold art-deco-inspired venue at the Grove of Anaheim.

As attendees arrived, they mingled, posted to social media using the #BHHSCalifornia and #REIMAGINE2018 hashtags, and visited with vendors, marketing, and tech teams to learn about new tools and products.

This Is Living

At 1:00 p.m., everyone came together for the main event. President and CEO Mary Lee Blaylock took the stage to share company successes and highlights from 2017, introduce new products and tools, and provide inspiration for 2018.

She also introduced our new This Is Living mini-video series, which highlight the California lifestyle from San Diego’s surf scene to Santa Barbara’s wine-lovers.

All 6 new videos can be viewed on YouTube.

Inspiration with a hint of magic


Vinh Giang, guest speaker.

After Mary Lee got the crowd excited for what’s to come, she introduced keynote speaker, entrepreneur, and magician Vinh Giang.

Vinh taught us that there are common threads between the worlds of business and magic and that sometimes all you need is a new perspective in order to solve a problem.

He inspired us with his story and his wisdom, made us laugh until it hurt with his jokes, and awed us with his illusions.

New tools

After Vinh left us all inspired and ready to take up magic lessons, Mary Lee introduced a second speaker, Laura Scott, who demonstrated a brand-new tool available to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties agents.

In addition to making agents’ jobs easier and making them stand out from the competition, sellers and buyers can now get property value estimates on any home, just by entering the address.

Our database of listings and buyers helps our agents to easily match buyers and sellers within our system, sometimes before a home has even officially listed.

Talk to an agent today to find out how these tools can benefit you.
