Luxury Portfolio Summit – Fontainebleau, Miami

Approximately two weeks ago, I had the unique opportunity to attend the Luxury Portfolio Summit at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, Florida.  The Summit is an opportunity for luxury real estate professionals to further educate themselves about the latest techniques and technologies as they relate to the marketing of luxury properties, and to network with other members of the industry.  The topics included marketing and technology, but also techniques on how to best counsel luxury buyers and sellers, as well as a simple exchange of ideas during small break-out sessions.  I learned a lot, and enjoyed the experience.

Our affiliation with Luxury Portfolio International, and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, allows us to better serve our luxury buyers and sellers, including the ability to reach buyers worldwide.  In addition, the relationship allows us to refer a buyer or seller to a qualified broker anywhere in the country or world.  You can read more about the organization below:
