Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland presented to an accomplished group of luxury real estate professionals at the 2020 Luxury SUMMIT on March 9 – 11 at the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas. The event is invitation-only and open exclusively to sales associates who specialize in the luxury market and whose firms are members of Luxury Portfolio International®, the marketing division of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®.
The 2020 Luxury SUMMIT featured concentrations and educational sessions with distinct tracks focusing on wealth, wisdom and wellness, as well as content dedicated exclusively to the luxury real estate professional. An impressive lineup of keynote speakers was showcased including: Ben Nemtin, whose life changing journey was chronicled on MTV Show, The Buried Life; Lance Allred, who strived to become the first legally deaf player in the NBA; and Platon Antoniou, a globally renown portraitist who’s worked with the likes of Barack Obama, George Clooney and Bill Gates.
Hyland and Matt Beal, president of Hawaii Life, the state’s largest real estate firm, spoke on marketing at the very top with issues raised and answered, including pocket listings and coming soon properties in light of the new NAR mandate.
“Having lived through four recessions, this one we are about to join will again separate the professionals from the real estate on the side agents,” said Hyland. “Stay focused and communicate with you clients and follow professionals, in this virus moment, on a daily basis.” Hyland was among a notable line-up of speakers, which included Joe McLean, Managing Partner of Intersect Capital, LLC; Matthew Bauer, President of the Madison Avenue Business Improvement District; Karin Dillie, Director of Trusts and Estates for The RealReal; David Friedman, Co-Founder of WealthQuotient; Maggie McDaris, Vice President of Wellness for LulaFit; Chandler Mount, Vice President of Business Development for YouGov; and Molly McKinley, CEO of Intentionaliteas, and more.
“At every Luxury SUMMIT, we strive to offer our extensive group of members exceptional and current educational content,” said Stephanie Anton, president of Luxury Portfolio International. “This year, our speakers presented audiences with the latest in wellness trends within the luxury industry, their experience in wealth creation and their wisdom on living a fulfilled life.”
