Ronald Shore and David Hitt learn the latest in Luxury Home marketing by attending the Keller Williams Luxury Homes International Retreat.
The sun and sand of beautiful Huntington Beach was the perfect backdrop for the recent Eighth Annual Keller Williams Luxury Homes Retreat. We were lucky enough to be in attendance of this informational session and meeting of the minds of some of Keller Williams’ most successful agents dealing in the luxury home market.
Keller Williams Luxury Homes International is a division of Keller Williams Realty launched a few years ago to cater to the needs of high-end clientele and their homes. Ronald is a member of the division representing the Los Angeles area, and is also a member of the Institute for Luxury Homes Marketing
The retreat began with a sunset party on the patio of the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There were over 500 KW agents there from around the world, and we had a wonderful opportunity to see many old friends as well as strike-up some wonderful new friendships.
The next day-and-a-half were filled with presentations by some awesome and inspirational professionals sharing their successes, and their failures which led to success. The highlight for us was a presentation entitled “The Top 20 Digital Innovations That Will Change Your World!” presented by world renowned author and real estate visionary, Stefan Swanepoel.
Swanepoel showed us many fascinating new technologies including advances in virtual reality and holograms that will start to blend our digital world with our physical world. Check out this video demonstration for Microsoft Hololens which Mr. Swanepoel shared with us during his presentation. Imagine how soon an out-of-town buyer might be able to tour your home using similar technology. We also saw footage of new developments, such as a bracelet that unspools from your wrist to become a camera-equipped drone which can follow you around, and another that is actually a tablet, but instead of a screen, a small lens projects a virtual screen onto the skin of your forearm.
In addition to the presentation on technology, other presentations included sessions on branding and marketing, online presence, consumer mindset, and creating a customer service experience to remember.
Events like this are an important part of our business. Sharing ideas with other successful agents keeps us in top form and helps us to develop referral relationships around the world which benefit our clients here at home. The many techniques and technologies we learn at these sessions help keep us on the cutting edge of Real Estate so we can best serve your needs.
As the sun set on the Pacific on our last day, we left for home enriched, inspired, and ready to serve you!
