SAN FRANCISCO, CA – (October 2008) – Real estate professionals working in luxury home markets gathered to see how their marketing techniques compare to the best in the business at Leaders in Luxury (LIL), a networking symposium for upper-tier REALTORS® held earlier this month in Miami. Maureen Kennedy of Pacific Union GMAC Real Estate was recognized at the meeting as the national award winner for Overall Excellence in Personal Marketing. Kennedy’s winning entry was chosen by an advertising agency executive from Dallas-based Brand Agent and judged on its quality, creativity and appropriateness for the luxury niche.
“Attendance at Leaders in Luxury is important to an upper-tier professional’s success. With the current real estate market, I have to be proactive to stay on top of market conditions,” said Kennedy, who works from Pacific Union’s Montclair office. “By networking with the best in the business, sharing ideas and learning about the latest trends and outlooks, I can help my affluent clients find success where others are finding challenges.” Kennedy, a licensed real estate broker, was selected earlier this year as one of 50 Realtors on the Rise by Real Estate magazine, an influential national industry magazine. Leaders in Luxury is an invitation-only meeting hosted annually by The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM). The event is for agents who work in the million and multi-million dollar housing market. The Institute is the premier training and membership organization for luxury home real estate professionals internationally.

Maureen Kennedy is a great example of the quality of real estate professional this event attracts.”
