Real Hustle, a TED-style conference, hits the stage in Denver on Monday.

Real Hustle.

It’s not a re-branding of the disco dance moves from the ‘70s.

Real Hustle is a TED-style real estate conference coming to Denver on Monday.

TED talks, since 1984, have promoted “ideas worth spreading.”

Staci Staub, the organizer of the all day Real Hustle conference said the dozen presenters will be very TED-like, fast-paced talks by a dozen speakers.

“The capacity is 300 and we expect to sell out,” said Staub, who is a Realtor and marketing director at Live Urban Real Estate.

She also is a co-founder of Genuine Hustle, a fledgling “learning portal” that will provide webinars and other ways for real estate agents to connect and learn from each other.

“We’ll kind of be launching Genuine Hustle and Real Hustle,” she said.

Staub said Real Hustle is drawing Realtors from many, if most of the residential real estate companies in the metro area…and beyond.

“We’ve got brokers coming from RE/MAX, Keller Williams, Coldwell Banker, LIV Sotheby’s and a lot of the smaller, boutique firms,” Staub said.

“Of course, Live Urban will be well represented.”

Megan Aller of Land Title will make a presentation at the Real Hustle conference.

In addition, 30 to 40 agents from outside of Colorado already have registered, she said.

“We have people flying in just to attend the Real Hustle,” she Staub said.

“Right now, we have agents coming from California, New York, Texas and other states.” Staub said.

The 12 presenters in the morning will be limited to 10 minutes to make their points.

“It’s going to be very TED-like. They will be  really fast-paced and action-packed,” Staub said. About half will use slides as a backdrop.

The idea is that speakers will provide information that will be immediately actionable and have real-world applications for audience members, she said.

Megan Aller, a sales manager at Land Title, will be the only speaker who is local.

Aller’s presentation is titled “A Girl + Her Graphs...”

Other speakers will be from Texas, Tacoma, Washington, North Carolina, California and Canada.

Like Aller’s presentation, the topics have clever names, such as: “Breaking Bad…How to Get Your Groove Back After Everything Freaking Falls Apart…and Digital Killed the Real Estate Star.”

“They are all innovators,” Staub said about the speakers.

“They are all people I have masterminded with.”

A number of them she has met at various national conferences over the years.

In years past, there were a number of real estate ‘rebooting’ conferences that found their way to Denver, she said. Inman News, used to sponsor one, but it hasn’t been held for several years, she said.

“We kind of realized there is a Denver drought as far as conferences for real estate agents,” Staub said.

She said she doesn’t think she coined the moniker “Real Hustle” for a real estate conference.

But it fits.

“To us, the definition of hustling is serving the consumer in a genuine way,” Staub said. “Our motto is real agents, real hustle.”

Denver has never experienced a real estate conference like Real Hustle, she said.

“Not to my knowledge. We’re really excited about Real Hustle.”

The cost is $30, which includes lunch. When the event winds down at 3 p.m., there will be a cash bar and live music by One Man Ruckus
