SSIR brokers participate in global networking event

Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty recently participated in the 2016 Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event, according to a news release. The event took place May 16 through 18 in Las Vegas and brought together about 2,300 members of the Sotheby’s International Realty network, with more than 165 of the brand’s companies represented from 40 countries and territories, worldwide.

“The Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event offers an extraordinary experience and provides great value to our firm and, in turn, our clients,” said David Baldinger, Jr., SSIR co-owner/broker. “Attending allowed us the opportunity to connect with the world’s most talented real estate professionals to learn more about the industry, both on a global level and as a whole, the advantages offered through the Sotheby’s International Realty network and the brand’s vision for the future, all while creating lasting friendships and a valuable, global referral business.”

SSIR attendees included Cam Boyd, Pam Vanatta, David Baldinger Jr., Jill Limberg, Darlinda Baldinger, Colleen de Jong, Bruce Carta, Josh Cook, Cheryl Foote, Chloe Lawrence, Cindy MacGray, Ren Martyn, Anne Mayberry, Lisa Olson, Caroleah Patterson, Ralph Walton and Melissa Valrey.

More than 35 breakout sessions were offered, ranging in topic from sales and negotiation tactics to the changing landscape and demographics of home ownership to the power of branding and marketing.

More than 120 Sotheby’s International Realty network members volunteered to play an integral part in the sessions, sharing advice, best practices and personal experiences with their peers while serving as breakout hosts, guest speakers and expert panelists.

The Prestige Team joins SSIR

The Prestige Team has joined Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty, according to a news release. The three-member team will use the team business model, offering consumers a way to obtain diverse expertise immediately.

“Consumers love that they have unlimited access to an agent; if one of us is with a client or on vacation, the other steps in without missing a beat,” said Lori Thompson, who is on The Prestige Team along with Annamarie Shunny and Lani Holmberg. “The true value to our clients is the efficiency and expertise of our real estate process. As we move from transaction to closing, we have several real estate brains that can be tapped at a moment’s notice as we vet problems and solutions.”

The Prestige Team will focus on leveraging the collective time and experience of its members, while working together to deliver services for clients, according to the release.

“I have analytical strengths, Lani is experienced in innovation and business, Lori breathes marketing. We are all equal and all different,” Shunny said.

Holmberg, the team’s newest member, said the team would bring a competitive advantage and have more resources to tap than a solo broker.

“Collectively, we bring a unique competitive advantage to a transaction by simply having more resources to tap into,” she said.
