The past week was a memorable one for our PureWest Real Estate Agents who attended the Global Christie’s Summit in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. PureWest Christie’s International Real Estate was one of more than 100 agencies from 30 luxury brokerages representing eight countries who gathered in Jackson Hole, January 21 through 24, 2016, for a networking event for Christie’s International Real Estate Affiliates hosted by Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates.
“Bringing together our agents from around the world to share insights and discuss firsthand business opportunities only serves to strengthen our position as the global leader in luxury real estate,” said Dan Conn, Chief Executive Officer of Christie’s International Real Estate.
The summit included a formal program of presentations and seminars by three expert keynote speakers.
Participants heard Jimmy Chin, a National Geographic photographer, award-winning filmmaker and 15-year veteran of the North Face team, talk about overcoming adversity in high-altitude adventures. Katie Lance, CEO of the social media strategy and content development firm of Katie Lance Consulting and recognized by Inman News as one of the top “100 Most Important People in Real Estate,” shared industry trends for 2016. Jerry Blann, CEO of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, also spoke and honored the legendary ski area’s 50th anniversary.
“The program was sensational and advanced all of our professional insights,” said Rick Moeser, Regional Senior Vice President of Christie’s International Real Estate. “What was equally valuable was the time shared outside the meetings in this magnificent ski destination and the geographical diversity of the attendees.” Eleven U.S. states and seven countries, including Argentina and the United Kingdom were represented at the Summit.
The agents paired business with fun in the beautiful surroundings. There was enough time between meetings for the affiliates to build relationships for referrals and share industry practices while enjoying Jackson Hole’s world-renowned ski runs.
“As the reigning Christie’s International Real Estate Global Affiliate of the Year, we were honored to host the top brokers from our $113 billion dollar network,” said Julie Faupel, Partner of Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates. “All participants benefited from the new business relationships formed this week, as did the Jackson Hole community by welcoming this global gathering on Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s 50 year milestone.”
It was truly an honor for the Montana PureWest attendees to participate in the Global Summit and we look forward to the next time we gather to network and enjoy all that Christie’s International Real Estate offers it’s esteemed affiliates.
