A group of colleagues from St. Croix and St. Thomas attended the Coldwell Banker GenBlue Conference in Miami for some professional development from the best of the best in real estate. GenBlue is a global gathering of agents, brokers and industry leaders.
One of my favorite sessions was led by two top Coldwell Banker brokers, Jenny Ames from Chicago and Wendy Walker from Phoenix. This invitation-only event was part of the Previews certification, which focuses on Luxury Real Estate. Jenny Ames shared her experience of developing a strong luxury strategy for her market in Chicago with a full complement of power-house players. A fellow Previews certification attendee also from Chicago, Joe Kotoch with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Lincoln Park, shared a unique story of selling a large home to a Chicago Cubs player; his sports agent background certainly worked wonders for him! I am looking forward to implementing these ideas back home on St. Croix for our luxury market.
I also enjoyed spending time with Jade Mills, one of the top Brokers in all of Coldwell Banker, from Beverly Hills. It’s an honor to be part of such a talented and worldly network of real estate professionals.
