In attendance are real estate professionals from many of the best-known local and regional real estate firms across 15 countries in Europe, North America and Asia.
The symposium’s program focuses on issues impacting the global real estate market. Keynote speakers included Richard Rawlings, the United Kingdom’s 2012 Estate Agency Trainer of the Year, who shared innovative marketing strategies, and Matthew Ferrara of Matthew Ferrara & Company, whose presentation focused on “Embracing the Global Marketplace.” REAL Trends Editor Steve Murray provided a global and economic housing forecast, and numerous member speakers shared insights on market trends and strategies. Information on the latest network initiatives were offered by LeadingRE President/CEO Pam O’Connor, Luxury Portfolio President Paul Boomsma, Luxury Portfolio EVP Stephanie Pfeffer and LeadingRE European Director Christoph Dietz.
“As we continue to expand globally to reach new markets, the symposium provides a valued opportunity for our members to meet one another and exchange ideas and best practices,” notes Dietz. “This type of networking, supported by a strong educational program, becomes more essential as we develop more cross-border business opportunities.”
The Symposium is the latest in a series of successful global symposiums held by the network in Madrid, Rome, Valencia and Dublin. Event sponsors included Unique Homes Magazine and Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies.
