Our Real Estate Networking Events, Attorney Spotlight, and More!

March 14, 2022

We are evolving and ready to serve! 

As we have been growing and setting up new offices aross the state, we have also increased our presence in the communities in which we have offices. One of the ways we’ve done this is our marketing and networking events with our real estate agents, lenders, and title companies! 

Motto: Your law firm for life! Our new changes are only helping us to stay true to this! 

One of the most amazing things going on at the firm is our regular networking events. Our first networking even after COVID-19 was held at Shady’s on September 23, 2021. This was our first crack at the informal networking in-person event since the pandemic brought these to a halt.

Our next one was held in November 18, 2021 where we saw a larger turn out and new faces. The most recent event was held on February 4, 2022 at Shady’s. The marketing team was thrilled to crown this our biggest real estate event to date for the firm. Over 70 real estate agents were in attendance, along with local lenders, who came out to meet the Whitaker & Hamer team, network with other agents, and enjoy music provided by our favorite DJ, DJ Youngsoul. 

The informal networking events have been the dream of Attorney Scruggs-Smith who organized our first event in September of last year and help continue to push these events in particular in her closings. We are happy to see these grow and create a better opportunity for real estate professionals to connect without pressure or formality. Be sure to follow our social media pages for info on the next event. In the meantime, be sure to save the date for our next real estate appreciation event which will be coming to Fuquay-Varina on March 25th.  We can’t wait to see you there and connect on how we can partner together moving forward!
