NEW YORK, NY — Christie’s International Real Estate, the real estate arm of Christie’s, the world’s leading art auction house, welcomed over 400 brokers from 20 countries, including 20 U.S. states, to the network’s annual Luxury Specialist Conference. At the conclusion of the forum, attendees were designated as a “Christie’s International Real Estate Luxury Specialist” by Christie’s Education.
The platform is reserved for brokers of Christie’s International Real Estate. The interactive format was designed to hear from renowned speakers on global trends, as well as panels with network peer leaders and space reserved for breakout discussions for all in attendance to join the conversation.
Featured speakers include Shawn Kanungo, who advises international organizations to best plan for the opportunities arising from global disruptions, such as the pandemic, with forward-looking business strategies. Elliot Eisenberg, an expert at making a daunting topic, like the global economy, welcoming to non-economists. His presentation spoke to the trend that signs still point to growth worldwide but slowing growth. Cara Robins, having worked social media on social media management and influencer partnerships for lifestyle brands such as Martha Stewart, Cuisinart and Christie’s International Real Estate, provided a look at best practices to continuing to drive visibility over the coming horizon for their personal brands.
Other topics were: What we learned from the pandemic and strategies going forward, managing multi-bids in an inventory constrained environment, and proven insights for success as a luxury specialist. Executives also introduced the new suite of marketing materials available to the network.
Dan Conn, CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate, commented: “Our brokers are specialists and leaders in their local markets. This conference was designed to offer them new and unique insights into the dynamics affecting the residential real estate industry generally and how best to serve the world’s most discerning clientele more specifically. The conference content canvassed real estate best practices and went beyond real estate, focusing on other collectible categories that matter to our clients. The knowledge shared among network colleagues during the conference helps enable Christie’s International Real Estates’ real estate specialists to further differentiate themselves and their service offering with existing and prospective clients. With real estate transactions happening at an unprecedented rate in an equally unprecedented global environment, understanding and being able to provide differentiated and trusted advice to our clients has never been more important.”
