Daniel Ortiz, a Global Luxury Ambassador affiliated with the Coldwell Banker SMART office in San Miguel de Allende, México, recently attended the invitation-only Fall 2021 International Luxury Alliance Summit hosted at the elegant Stein Eriksen Lodge, Deer Valley ski resort in Park City.
Representing San Miguel de Allende’s marketplace, Ortiz was part of an elite group of approximately 70 luxury marketing experts from around the world invited to attend the summit (Watch the video). All attendees were affiliated with Coldwell Banker, The Corcoran Group and Hamptons International, leading residential real estate firms serving luxury housing markets and clientele.
“Daniel was chosen for his expertise in the luxury space, production levels and average sales price, ability to share best practices from our local market with other ILA members, and to expand the ILA footprint to provide more opportunities for business referrals. The expertise Daniel shared at our 2021 summit provided invaluable insight that strengthens our entire network and helps us all keep our fingers on the pulse of the world-wide luxury market”, said Liz Gehringer, chief operating officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
Jade Mills, Coldwell Banker Global Luxury specialist in Beverly Hills, assembled this talented group to share winning strategies and the latest updates about luxury real estate markets around the globe. “The market updates by our members at the Summit are invaluable. Though we each focus day-to-day on our own market, our luxury buyers and sellers move among them. Our conversations and relationships at the International Luxury Alliance allow us to best serve our clientele” said Mills.
The event’s special guest speaker was Steve Gold, real estate agent with The Corcoran Group in Manhattan and star of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing New York.” Gold shared his powerful strategies for marketing real estate on social media. Speakers included M. Ryan Gorman, president and CEO of Coldwell Banker; Pamela Liebman, president and CEO of The Corcoran Group; Gehringer and Michael Altneu, vice president of luxury for Coldwell Banker.
As part of the three-day networking event, Ortiz and his colleagues participated in roundtable discussions, were treated to VIP experiences, and had opportunities to enjoy each other in scenic Utah.
“The International Luxury Alliance is a powerful network populated by real estate agents who rank among the most accomplished and talented high-end specialists from Coldwell Banker, The Corcoran Group, and Hamptons International. Every member, like Daniel, understand the nuances of representing lavish estates and in-demand lifestyles throughout the world. Their career portfolio of luxury listings is unmatched,” said Altneu.
The International Luxury Alliance represents buyers and sellers with an ultra-high net worth throughout 45 key markets in the U.S. and abroad. Combined, this group closes approximately $9 billion and 2,780 sales annually with an average sale price of $4.2 million.
