 SmartTouch® Participates in PCBC Real Estate Marketing Experts Roundtable


At the end of June, two of our team members, Robert Cowes and Tanner Ross, attended PCBC The Art, Science + Business of Housing – an annual two‑day conference and the largest homebuilding tradeshow on the West Coast. PCBC is open to anyone professionally involved in the building industry and attracts experts from across the country for industry‑leading‑education sessions, innovative product displays, and shared inspirational ideas.

Robert and Tanner participated in the real estate marketing experts roundtable that promoted a vigorous discussion between peers. The roundtable was also moderated by renowned real estate branding expert Kathleen Cecilian of Cecilian Worldwide.
