We’re kicking off a new series on that we’re calling “Question of the Week.” Every week we’ll ask a question, and rely on you, our industry experts, to crowdsource the answers.

Feel free to leave your feedback in the comment box below, email us at (or to Karen or me directly), or connect with us on social media on Facebook or Instagram. We’ll share as much as we can within the week. (Please let us know what questions you’d like to have answered, too!)

This week’s question:
What specifically are you doing to attract and retain talented sales associates?


We know it’s a tight turnaround, but if you can give us your answers by Sunday evening, we’ll share the results with everybody next Monday, January 24th, during New York Market Week.

Thank you!

The MR Team
