Brad Inman is one of the brighter light bulbs in the industry.
If you don't know this already, then please Google him. Brad Inman and his team at Inman News have been keeping brokers and other real estate enthusiasts apprised of the current and relevant news around us for years. In addition, Inman News has traveled around with their Inman Connect conferences in an effort to excite and motivate the attendees.
Inman Connect works, so why not expand that to niches such as the luxury market?
This year, Molly Cartwright and I had the privilege of being at the very first Inman News Luxury Connect conference with the tagline of "Embrace Change. Spark Innovation." Only 100 Brokers from around the globe attended this power packed day of truly exciting and innovating sessions.
The event itself was held at the Beverly House in Beverly Hills - as in where William Randolph Hearst lived with actress Marion Davies in his final days. It is currently listed for $135 Million by Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland and yes, Jeff was there as well. Although Seattle luxury homes don't land anywhere near Beverly Hills mansions One year we sold the fifth highest priced home in Seattle and it sold for $5.4M), we do have our fair share of luxurious estates.
We Had an All Star Real Estate Line Up!
Speakers for Luxury Connect included Arianna Huffington, Josh Altman, Mauricio Umansky, Cynthia Ambuehl, Joyce Rey, Madison Hildebrand, Dolly Lenz, and of course was hosted and sometimes moderated by the fabulous Brad Inman and Laura Monroe. Matt Altman and Heather Bilyeu were also there. It wasn't the first time I have met the Altman Brothers and Heather Bilyeu and they were again just fabulous to speak with (and yes, they are still together and quite cute)..
The event was really a must be there for anyone in luxury real estate, but also was exclusive enough that you really had a chance to network and mingle with the who's who of the industry. The speakers were free and generous with their information and I personally brought back some good tools to add to our Seattle luxury real estate practice at Cooper Jacobs Real Estate.
Attend The Next Inman News Event
I highly recommend that you attend an Inman News event. It adds a huge value to your business and truly does spark innovation. Molly and I came away with more than we ever expected to and it was a pleasure to be able to learn and share with some of the best.

Seattle real estate has been a huge part of my life for well over a decade since I began my career in real estate,but also before that time when I was in the process of purchasing my own first home. Buying your first home can be quite overwhelming,but I have managed to help many first time home buyers along the way.
Move up Seattle buyers and other types of specialized purchasing is a great passion of mine! I love Seattle houseboats and you can find me down on the docks of Lake Union and Portage Bay several times a week. Other aspects of Seattle real estate that I adore include Queen Anne Real Estate,Wallingford Real Estate, Ballard Real Estate, Green Lake Real Estate, Laurelhurst Real Estate, Magnolia Real Estate,andSeattle Waterfront Real Estate.
