Leading Sarasota Brokerage Represented at NYC Conference Focused on Fine Art, Luxury Goods and Collectibles, and the Essentials of Marketing and Selling High-end Real Estate
Speakers included top producers in real estate sharing their expertise, Christie’s specialists with insights into how to elevate client service through the auction house, and an economist providing a forecast for 2019. At the conclusion of the conference, attendees were designated a “Christie’s International Real Estate Luxury Specialist” by Christie’s Education.
“One of the hallmarks of the Christie’s brand is exemplary client care,” said Dan Conn, CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate. “This conference provides network agents the opportunity to better understand and leverage Christie’s full spectrum of expertise in art, luxury goods, and real estate. The agents who attend are proven experts in their local markets, motivated to pursue continuing education in the luxury market and well-deserving of being designated a Luxury Specialist.”
Tom Cinquegrano of the Michael Saunders and Company Lakewood Ranch office said this of the conference:
“The most important reason for attending is because Christie’s is a phenomenal vehicle to leverage our international customers. We can share the content we learned with our customers.”
Maureen Horn of the Michael Saunders and Company Longboat Key South office said this of the conference:
“Christie’s is the preeminent source of luxury not only because of historic sales, like the Rockefeller Estate and Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi, but also because it has maintained its influence while evolving with the industry. This conference reconfirmed the fact that in any business, especially real estate, you can never stop learning. Continuous education begets value that we can then offer to current and potential customers.”
Marianne LeBar of the Michael Saunders and Company Palmer Ranch office said this of the conference:
“I attended the Christie’s conference to get an update on the economic factors affecting our luxury clientele today and found the discussion on distribution of wealth, and what will be passed onto the heirs of Baby Boomers, very insightful. It reminded me how early on in my career Michael Saunders emphasized “Generation Speak” and how to talk to a customer on their level. It’s the truest thing I have ever learned and something I incorporate into all my interactions.”
Carol Stewart of the Michael Saunders and Company Boca Grande office said this of the conference:
“The information given at the Christie’s International Real Estate Conference was a timely reminder always keep a pulse on your seller’s motivations; push the reset button on listings that have gone flat; and be valuable to other agents – they are very important to our overall businesses.”
Janet Walter of the Michael Saunders and Company Longboat Key South office said this of the conference:
“The fact that Michael Saunders & Company has a relationship with and the support of an organization with such a strong reputation and marketing strategy, makes me even more confident about representing them. I believe our customers understand that this association makes them part of this exclusive group.”
