Renown Author Jon Gordon to Address Jacksonville Real Estate Professionals at Elevate The Elite Event

November 15, 2016

With the Northeast Florida housing market showing signs of a strong revitalization, internationally-known author and speaker Jon Gordon spoke to a group of 300-plus real estate professionals at the Elevate The Elite event on Tuesday at the University of North Florida’s Adam W. Herbert University Center. Gordon, the author of Wall Street Journal best-seller, “The Energy Bus,” is one of the most sought after speakers in the world today, and has had his principles put to the test by organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies to professional sports teams and non-profit organizations.

The invitation-only event is the brainchild of three Jacksonville housing professionals, Jamie Zeitz, David J. Heekin Esq. and Billy Wagner, who fully believe that the further growth of the local housing market requires a team approach and personal investment in helping their colleagues be the best they can be. The invitees for Elevate the Elite were hand-picked because the three felt that these individuals had the potential to play a key role in the health and continued resurgence of the Florida real estate market.

While Gordon will be the crux of the event for attendees, many may also find inspiration from Zeitz, Heekin and Wagner, each of whom have had their own share of success in the Northeast Florida real estate industry. Zeitz, Northeast Florida Market Leader for HomeBridge, has been listed in the top one percent of mortgage loan originators in the country by Mortgage Executive Magazine. Heekin, founder and president of Landmark Title Insurance, has led his company as the top title company by share in Northeast Florida for the last three years in a row. Wagner, agency owner of Brightway Insurance Ponte Vedra Beach, holds a similar accolade, having led his Brightway office to become the number one branch in the Brightway network for the last three years.

“There is a massive opportunity on the horizon for the entire Northeast Florida housing industry, but we know it takes a true team effort to take advantage of it,” said Zeitz. “Elevate The Elite is a rare opportunity for housing industry professionals to learn from one of the most sought after speakers in the world today. We’re holding this event to help realtors and industry professionals be the best they can be next year, for the benefit of the Northeast Florida housing industry and the homebuyers we serve together.”
