Last week Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty’s management team traveled to Palm Beach, Florida to participate in the 2014 Sotheby’s International Realty® Leadership Forum, which brought together nearly 300 network members worldwide. This dynamic, three-day event, which was held March 31st to April 2nd at The Breakers provided a unique opportunity for Sotheby’s International Realty brokers, owners and managers to network and share the industry’s best practices. “One of my favorite aspects of the leadership gathering was the opportunity to network with some of the most successful real estate brokers from around the world. It is nice to know you have a qualified broker, with shared high standards, in most every city around the world who are standing by to take care of your clients as the need arises,” related Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty broker Cindy Paur.
Our team highly anticipated the trek across the country and the opportunity to gather with our Sotheby’s International Realty affiliates to discuss the latest subjects in luxury real estate. “It was so exciting being in Palm Beach with some of the premiere real estate minds in the world. Sotheby’s International Realty has grown so much in the past 10 years… and the next 10 is going to be even more amazing,” exclaimed Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty’s CEO and Owner Joseph Brazen. “When Chief Marketing Officer Wendy Purvey showed the group what is about to come she blew the audience away. We now have exclusive partnerships with Bloomberg and Architectural Digest, accompanied by a first of it’s kind I-Pad marketing presentation app. Presently, NO ONE in the real estate industry has this kind of technology.” stated Joseph. With this new advantage, our marketing is bound to surpass the over 800 million impressions from last year, another example of how Sotheby’s International Realty is truly beyond the extraordinary.
Our management team worked tirelessly by day listening to the industry’s brightest speak about what the future holds for Sotheby’s International Realty and the luxury real estate industry alike. “This year Sotheby’s International Realty is challenging us to be pirates, and to go out and discover!” emphasized relocation specialist Kathy Madsen. In the end, its all about the listing, nothing else!
