Rimontgó Principals José and Antonio Ribes Bas to be Honored With Luxury Real Estate Lifetime Achievement Award
Posted by Courtney Jansen — February 25, 2011
SEATTLE – (February 25, 2011) – Brothers José and Antonio Ribes Bas, who developed Inmobiliaria Rimontgó from a respected real estate firm in the Jávea and Valencia regions of Eastern Spain into a leading international luxury real estate specialist, will be honored with the Luxury Real Estate Lifetime Achievement Award in April at the 9th Annual Luxury Real Estate Spring Retreat in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, an event that brings together the cream of international real estate firms from the four corners of the globe.
To be chosen from amongst this select group and nominated for a Lifetime Achievement Award is an honor indeed. The Luxury Real Estate Lifetime Achievement Award is an award based on peer recognition, hard work and acknowledgement. This prestigious award is given twice annually to the Luxury Real Estate member who has set an example for the real estate industry, displayed excellence throughout their career and is truly a legend.
Leading the WayHaving originally worked their way up through the family business, José and Antonio Ribes Bas have steered the company through both booms and recessions, and taken it from a highly respected local firm to a luxury real estate specialist with international reach and recognition.
This achievement is reflected in the nomination, as is the fact that the brothers have always taken a leading role in developing new initiatives both within their home region and in the sector as a whole. Believing that unity is strength, José and Antonio have been tireless in their efforts to build national and international networks that bind those firms with a shared belief in quality service, integrity and future vision.
Modern InnovationAs a result, they have contributed to many of the leading Spanish, European and global professional luxury real estate organizations, being invited in many cases to sit on governing and advisory boards. Perhaps the high point of this process so far has been the role played by José in the founding and developing of the European Real Estate Network (EREN), a collective of leading real estate agents from different parts of Europe.
Having built solid relationships across the continents, the brothers have met the current downturn in the property market head-on and responded to the latest trends in online marketing to create an award-winning website that has been a great success for business and client alike.
Old-fashioned ValuesIn 2009, the company celebrated its 50th anniversary, a landmark which the brothers dedicated to their father, who taught them not only to be ambitious and embrace the challenges of a new world, but to do so with old-fashioned values of integrity and humanity.
