GenBlue 2017 – Investigation and Case Solved!

Where will GenBlue be? That was the question of the hour today at 9:59am here at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®. We spent weeks debating and contemplating the location. Many more months were spent wondering when it would be announced.

Today we all gathered at our respective offices huddled near a computer or smart phone waiting in anticipation for the announcement to be made.

To understand the excitement of some however, you had to be following the exclusive GenBlue social media group. This is where much of the international speculation took place the previous couple days.

In fact, a full fledged investigation took place note Exhibit A shared by Sam Grogan of Charlotte, North Carolina:

We took it a step further, note Exhibit B (construction by yours truly):

Followed by Exhibit C in a rebuttal from the now co-detective Sam Grogan:

Which brings us to the moment of reveal. Gathered in the North Central / Stone Oak office of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Pat Busby, VP of Residential Sales and Ali Heft Assistant VP of Residential Sales for the North Central Office waited with a large group of Sales Agents watching CBExchange.

Although the server crashed and the #GenBlue team effectively broke the system – the news was revealed via the social media group from across the country who were avidly posting.

And here it is!! The 2017 Generation Blue Experience Location Revealed!

Cheers to you GenBlue and we hope to see you there with us as part of the Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Family On October 17-19th, 2017!
