Charleston, North Carolina (PRWEB) January 16, 2013
Over one hundred North American professionals specializing in luxury real estate gathered earlier this month 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 in Charleston (SC).
Hosted annually by The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM), Leaders in Luxury is an exclusive, invitation-only educational and networking opportunity for real estate agents who work in the million dollar plus housing market. The event includes a marketing competition and Maria Babaev of Laffey Fine Homes International walked away with the prize for “Overall Excellence in Personal Marketing” for her personal agent branding campaign.
“Maria’s personal marketing plan was targeted and creative,” said Institute President Waco Moore, “with its mix of quality printed materials and up-to-the minute digital marketing, Maria’s campaign focuses on her strong market knowledge and other competencies. Her “Your Eyes on the Luxury Real Estate Market” and “Locally known. Globally connected.” campaign themes are powerful statements which help differentiate her from her competition.”
According to Babaev, “Attendance at Leaders in Luxury is important to an upper-tier professional’s success. In today’s real estate market, I have to be proactive to stay on top of market conditions. By networking with the best in the business from across Canada and the U.S., I can share ideas, learn the latest marketing techniques, and help my affluent clients find success where others are finding challenges.”
“LIL registration is limited to about 100 top luxury agents,” said Laurie Moore-Moore, Founder of The Institute,“to give our attendees the opportunity to build an exclusive network of luxury agent contacts, while sharing with the industry’s top professionals. Since competency is the key to working successfully with the luxury buyer and seller,” added Moore-Moore, “Leaders in Luxury is designed to provide attendees with important knowledge and insights, giving them a competitive edge in meeting the needs of the affluent. Maria Babaev is a great example of the quality of real estate professional this event attracts.”
