This past weekend, we flew to Las Vegas to join a prestigious group of luxury real estate professionals from around the world gathering at the Wynn Las Vegas for the Luxury Portfolio and Leading RE SUMMIT conference held between February 23-25. Bob Bennion & Bob Deville of Bennion & Deville Fine Homes and co-owners of Windermere Southern California have been members of Luxury Portfolio International® since 2008, just three years after it was founded. This year our entire team attended as participants to better soak in all the knowledge 2014’s SUMMIT had to offer through dividing and conquering the breakout sessions, networking with other attendees, and brushing up on our marketing and technology skills.
Luxury Portfolio is the luxury front of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, an international network of over 500 residential real estate firms around the world. Founded in 2005 to help real estate agents “market homes to the increasingly savvy affluent consumer,” Luxury Portfolio markets over 25,000 distinguished properties annually, and its members now make up the largest network of premier independent brokers.
The SUMMIT conference, held every year, is designed to provide further insight into the high-end consumer, reveal new marketing and technology tools to help attendees better market these unique properties on a global basis, and housing trends in the luxury real estate market. Over the three days, we heard from many incredible speakers including several notable personalities that included the internationally recognized graffiti artist and best-selling business author Erik Wahl who delivered an inspiring presentation on the spirit of innovation, Steve Harney, author of “Keeping Current Matters” and recognized expert in negotiation and sales skills training, as well as social media guru, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of twelve books and former chief evangelist at Apple Guy Kawasaki.
As established leaders that carry a reputation for expertise in representing some of the finest homes in the greater Seattle area, Bob Bennion & Bob Deville’s affiliation with luxury portfolio gives them the opportunity to expand their offering through the incredible local and global resources as well as through this powerful world-wide network.
Through Luxury Portfolio, we are connected to over 500 local brokerages in more than 35 countries giving us the opportunity to share with and learn from these esteemed colleagues and professionals all over the world.
We strive to provide you with the best service and resources to help you as you navigate the complicated, emotional and exciting process of buying and/or selling your home. We are thrilled to be back, armed with more tools and techniques, inspiration and energy for a very busy and exciting year of real estate.
