An impressive lineup of keynote speakers included MacArthur Fellow, author of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, and noted researcher on character development, Angela Duckworth, who shared her findings on the building blocks of success.

The conference included an economic forecast for 2018 by Dr. Marci Rossell, chief economist for Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®. Sessions also covered the art of negotiation, the evolution of real estate technology and what the latest consumer data says about the real estate market.

“The most beneficial aspect of the SUMMIT was the PRIX breakfast, which is an invite only group of about 25 luxury real estate professionals that represent properties in excess of $10,000,000. Having the opportunity to share what is working in today’s market for our UHNW clients and to connect with my UHNW broker counterparts across the globe is invaluable said Leonard.
