SEATTLE, WA – Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate Chairman John Brian Losh and President Meghan Barry were recently invited to speak with professional luxury real estate consultant Michael LaFido about the power of being well connected and highly educated in the luxury market in his Luxury Listing Specialist Podcast “Leveraging Your ‘Social Capital’ to Grow Your Luxury Business with Meghan Barry and John Brian Losh from Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate.”
They started the conversation discussing how Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate came to be and how it evolved into the vast global network it is today. Losh and Barry agreed that because the audience for luxury estates is global, being connected and knowing the right people is essential for success in the high-end market. They suggest that being a bridge between people, property and agents creates an authentic connection that demonstrates intimate knowledge of your local market as well as a market beyond your reach; and that ability resonates greatly with luxury home buyers and sellers.
Barry said “oftentimes if you own a home at the ten-million-dollar price point you probably almost definitely have more than one of those homes, and they’re probably in some of the most coveted places. So, it’s imperative for people who are listing and selling in important markets to be connected to one another…We consider knowing the right people really really important and that is what we do, we help facilitate those relationships.”
