Dickson Realty leaders, regional experts, and real estate agents came together to discuss the Nevada real estate market and celebrated the company’s top team members at its 2023 Economic Summit, held in the Nightingale Sky Room in the Nevada Museum of Art. About 200 agents attended, including representatives from Carson City and Carson Valley, who recently joined Dickson Realty.

“The Economic Summit has become part of Dickson Realty’s DNA and culture,” said Nancy Fennell, Dickson Realty CEO and owner. “The information agents take away from the event helps them help their buyers and sellers navigate the market and build strong relationships and a stronger community.”

Experts bring insights about Nevada housing market and more

This year’s economic summit included speakers who discussed the housing market and regional economy, how local and national factors could impact it, and what 2023 could bring.

“There is no good market, there is no bad market, there is just the market where we are,” Fennell said.

  • Mike Kazmierski, president and CEO of the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada, gave a broad overview of the region’s economy, comparing the last 20 years and providing context to sustainable growth.
