What is the history of Real Estate Distilled?

Real Estate Distilled was started in 2018.  We’ve slowly and organically been growing the conference ever since.  In 2019 we had about 120 attendees and in 2020, we hit 150 attendees.  We unfortunately had to skip our 2021 conference due to COVID. In 2022, we had 165 attendees. We are hopeful that in 2023, we will hit 185 to 200 attendees.  We’ve been blessed to have some of the biggest names in real estate share the stage and pour into our attendees.  As an example, here is a partial list of some of our past speakers who you might recognize.
