He is an experienced public speaker with numerous professional speaking engagements before real estate audiences, worldwide, to his credit.
Instrumental in the creation of Clareity’s Annual MLS Executive Workshop, held in Scottsdale, Arizona each year, Gregg is highly respected for his leadership, vision, creativity, product design, marketing skills, and technology and internet strategies. Larson graduated from the University of Denver and went to business school at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and currently serves as the CEO of Clareity Consulting.
Passionate, driven, committed to excellence. There are no better words to describe Clareity’s President. With more than 19 years of management experience, Amy Gorce has been with Clareity (and its affiliates) for over 11 years. She began as Clareity’s Chief Operating Officer then Executive Vice President before becoming President in early 2016. Before joining the Clareity family, Gorce served as the CEO of Intermountain Multiple Listing Service in Boise, Idaho for 7 years.
During her tenure at IMLS, Amy was responsible for driving a regionalization initiative which doubled the number of MLS subscribers and significantly increased the geographic market area for its members. She has extensive experience in the MLS and association leadership models and has managed numerous technology system conversions including planning, implementation, training and support.
Since joining the team at Clareity Security, Amy has set herself apart as an industry leader and is often invited to speak at industry conferences, such as Inman Connect, CMLS, as well as at Clareity’s annual MLS Executive Workshop.
An early adopter of social media technologies, Amy channels her excess energy (as well as random musings and an intense love of bacon) into services like Twitter and Facebook. It’s not all fun and games, though. Gorce leverages social media to glean bits of industry information, strengthen existing relationships and grow new ones, both personally and professionally. As a daughter and a mother, Amy has also found it to be a bridge that spans three generations, as well as connecting her to the ideas of tomorrow.
