SEATTLE, WA – Tuesday, September 24th, members of the global Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate (LRE®) network began arriving in Washington, D.C. to attend the 24th Annual Luxury Real Estate Fall Conference. The distinguished event brought together top real estate professionals, industry leaders and accomplished speakers from around the world to connect, share and discuss the latest trends in the luxury real estate industry.

The following day, Regents heard from expert panels, led by Board of Regents members, discussing how companies and agents are spending their money and time to stay top-of-mind with their clients.
