Local Luxury Real Estate Agent Wins “Best Agent Blog” Award in National Marketing Competition


Miami, FL - (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 (FL).  Aaron Wheeler of Oakville Properties was recognized at the meeting as the national award winner for Best Agent Blog.  Wheeler’s entry was chosen by an advertising agency executive from Dallas-based Brand Agent and judged on the quality, creativity, and appropriateness for the luxury niche.

According to Wheeler, “Attendance at LIL 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. 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.”

Oakville Properties is Real Estate 3.0—part Madison Avenue advertising savvy, part Wall Street financial sophistication, and part top concierge all in one: www.oakvilleproperties.net . Unlike traditional real estate companies, Oakville Properties is more likely to talk about their team of copywriters, photographers, decorators, valuation analysts, and concierges, and most of all, what they can do for their clients.

Oakville Properties has become a lifestyle company. One’s home is an important part of the picture, but Oakville Properties acknowledges that there is so much more. They continually form partnerships with many top developers throughout the country to showcase their properties, and to provide their clients with “best-of-the-best” luxury services and experiences. The purchase or sale of a home is not the end, but the beginning of their service. With offices in the San Francisco Bay Area and Las Vegas, Oakville Properties is in the perfect position to cater to luxury markets, and they are members of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate and The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM).

LIL registration is limited to about 100 top luxury agents,” said Laurie Moore-Moore, Founder of The ILHM, “to give our attendees the opportunity to build an exclusive network of luxury agent contacts, while sharing with the best in the business. Since competency is the key to working successfully with the luxury buyer and seller,” added Moore-Moore, “LIL is designed to provide attendees with important knowledge and insights, giving them a competitive edge in meeting the needs of the affluent.  Aaron Wheeler is a great example of the quality of real estate professional this event attracts.”

LIL is an invitation-only meeting hosted annually by ILHM, designed to offer educational and networking opportunities for real estate agents who work in the million-dollar plus housing market. The ILHM is the premier training and membership organization for luxury home real estate professionals internationally www.LuxuryHomeMarketing.com .
