The 2017 Sotheby’s International Realty® Global Networking Event

The Sotheby’s International Realty® Global Networking Event (GNE), which took place from September 25th to September 27th in Las Vegas, Nevada, brought together approximately 2,400 members of the Sotheby’s International Realty network, with more than 155 of the brand’s companies represented from 34 countries and territories worldwide – topping last year’s event as the largest in the history of the company.

At the GNE, members of the Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty team were afforded the ability to network with their peers from all over the world.

Held at the Wynn Las Vegas, the Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event was a dynamic three-day immersion into the brand, offering two general sessions and a selection of 25 breakout sessions. More than 85 Sotheby’s International Realty affiliate members volunteered to play an integral part in the sessions, which ranged in topic from sales and negotiation tactics to marketing and more, serving as breakout hosts, guest speakers and expert panelists to share advice, best practices and personal experiences with their peers.

Martha Stewart, founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, was the headlining keynote speaker and addressed members of the Sotheby’s International Realty network discussing the journey of creating a global lifestyle brand, which includes a focus on authenticity, constant evolution, and a keen understanding of the consumer.  In addition, Jeff Hargett, senior corporate director of culture transformation at The Ritz-Carlton Leadership Center, gave an engaging and dynamic speech about the power of excellence in customer service and creating unique client experiences.  The crowd was also addressed by:

  • John Peyton, chief executive officer of Realogy Franchise Group
  • Maarten ten Holder, executive vice president and global managing director of Sotheby’s Luxury & Lifestyle Division
  • Brett Hagler, chief executive officer and co-founder of New Story, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand’s charitable partner
  • The Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC senior leadership team including:
    • Philip White, president and chief executive officer
    • Julie Leonhardt LaTorre, chief operating officer
    • Kevin Thompson, chief marketing officer
    • Francis X. Santangelo, senior vice president of global operations

“The strength of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand resonates around the world and our global footprint is unrivaled; the Global Networking Event is a testament to that,” said White.  “This year’s conference was attended by members of our network from 34 countries and it is inspiring to see transcontinental business connections and friendships unfold as our affiliates continue to grow their business and strengthen the power of our brand.”

In addition to learning and networking opportunities, this year, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand’s charitable partner, New Story attended the event. New Story, which builds communities of homes for those in need for $6,000 USD per home, challenged attendees to pledge 100 homes for a new community in Mexico.  At the end of the event, attendees surpassed the goal by pledging over 150 New Story homes.  Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased and proud that our 13 attendees, along with the support of our company, pledged $6,000 to this inspirational cause.
