LIV SIR Attends Global Networking Event

LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR) took the 2016 Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event by storm, with nearly 100 LIV SIR brokers and leadership in attendance. The event, which took place from May 16th through May 18th in Las Vegas, Nevada, brought together approximately 2,300 members of the Sotheby’s International Realty network worldwide. This year’s conference was the most attended ever in Sotheby’s International Realty’s history.

“The Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event offers an extraordinary experience and provides great value to our firm, and in turn, our clients,” said LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, president, Scott Webber. “Attending allowed us the opportunity to connect with the world’s most talented real estate professionals, gaining valuable insight into the industry, both on a global level and as a whole. The advantages offered through the Sotheby’s International Realty network and the brand’s vision for the future are unparalleled.”

Held at the Wynn Las Vegas, the Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event was a dynamic three-day immersion into the brand, offering network members the unique opportunity to collaborate, share ideas and best practices, generate referrals and create lasting business connections around the world. The general sessions featured inspiring, emotional and motivational speeches from Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates, president and chief executive officer, Philip White, chief marketing officer, Wendy Purvey, and senior vice president, global operations, Francis X. Santangelo; as well as keynote speaker Daniel Lamarre, president and chief executive officer of Cirque du Soleil, and closing speaker Joe Castillo, the world’s premier “SandStory” performer.

“Our Global Networking Event celebrates the strength of the Sotheby’s International Realty network,” said White. “It is incredible to see how members of our network continue to utilize the resources we provide, take the reins and develop their own new opportunities and continue to grow their business. We are proud of our network, our heritage and our future, and the success of this year’s Global Networking Event is the culmination of it all.”

There were over 35 different breakout sessions offered, ranging in topics from sales and negotiation tactics, to the changing landscape and demographics of home ownership, to the power of branding and marketing, and more. Esteemed members of the Sotheby’s International Realty network volunteered to play an integral part in the sessions, sharing advice, best practices and personal experiences with their peers while serving as breakout hosts, guest speakers and expert panelists.
