Ashley McEvers, Willis Allen’s Business Development Manager, recently returned from two prestigious events held in Chicago – the Luxury Portfolio International® 2017 Affluence Forum and the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® Relocation and Referral Forum.
The Affluence Forum gathered leaders in home, design and luxury real estate to network, share ideas and absorb valuable information from industry experts on current and upcoming trends. Attracting relocation professionals from across the U.S., the Relocation Forum focused on referral networking, idea sharing and learning new business development strategies.
“Our exclusive affiliation with Luxury Portfolio International® and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® connects us to an elite group of global brokerages that are rooted in quality and expertise, just like Willis Allen is,” says McEvers. “We work together to market and sell our clients’ properties in over 800 cities. That means we can provide unparalleled service from Point Loma to Paris and beyond.”
The event provided an overview of the latest statistics on high-net- worth consumers, as well as insights about the global luxury real estate market. The event also included a review of industry innovations and networking opportunities for attendees.
Notable speakers included Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® Chief Economist Marci Rossell, who spoke about the economic factors influencing the affluent consumer and former DWELL Media CEO, Michela O’Conner Abrams who provided insight on the power of good design in business. The forum also featured representatives from the home, design and real estate industries to speak about the latest trends in home technology, customization, restoration and wealth management.
Attendees also enjoyed enrichment opportunities including visits to the Monogram and Waterworks showrooms in Chicago’s famed Merchandise Mart and an architecture cruise through heart of downtown.
