The Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate marketing team recently had an exclusive opportunity to learn more about current and upcoming trends in the luxury market at the 2017 Affluence Forum, hosted by Luxury Portfolio International.
Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, through its affiliation with Ebby Halliday Real Estate, Inc., is a member of Luxury Portfolio International, an invitation-only network of more than 200 premier brokerages worldwide. Luxury Portfolio International is a comprehensive marketing program exclusively for the luxury listings of brands that are part of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, the largest global network of independent residential brokerages.
Luxury Portfolio International’s two-day, invitation-only event at The Merchandise Mart in Chicago assembled leaders in the shelter-related industries of home, design and luxury real estate to share ideas, network and learn from industry experts. Attendees were provided the latest statistics on the high-net-worth consumer, insights on the global luxury real estate market and a review of industry innovations.
“We are always challenging ourselves to do something different,” Luxury Portfolio International Chief Executive Paul Boomsma said. “This forum delivers real value for attendees who need to be conversant with the latest trends in luxury.”
Notable speakers included Leading Real Estate Companies of the World Chief Economist Marci Rossell, who spoke about the economic factors influencing affluent consumers and former DWELL Media Chief Executive Michela O’Conner Abrams, who provided insight into the power of good design in business.
The Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate marketing team also gained insight on the latest luxury home trends from visits to the Monogram and Waterworks showrooms in The Merchandise Mart, a famed art deco landmark on the banks of the Chicago River, as well as an architecture cruise through the heart of downtown.
“When marketing luxury homes, Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and our Associates tap the network of Luxury Portfolio International members and utilize its website, LuxuryPortfolio.com, to expose listings to buyers across the globe,” said Randall Graham, vice president and director of marketing for the company.
