The annual AREAA Global Luxury Summit is in our backyard again this year, as hundreds of international and luxury real estate professionals will gather April 7th to 9th to network and share ideas at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle. Dean Jones, President & CEO of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, was invited to speak on “Making Your Market Matter” to discuss the Seattle’s growing international interest and the firm’s successful Asia Services Group.
As the event website describes, AREAA chose Seattle to host this year’s Summit again “for its forward thinking and innovation,” particularly through gains in technology and eco-friendly industries. Many of the featured speakers and panels will “highlight how technology and green-energy are reshaping the world of global and luxury real estate.” AREAA will also celebrate two major 2018 milestones: the 15th anniversary of the organization, and the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act.
Jones has previously been invited to speak at three past AREAA events, lending his insight to panels at the 2016 Summit in Hawaii, the 2015 Summit in Chicago, and the 2013 Summit in Hawaii. RSIR’s strong connection to the AREAA organization includes attending last year’s Summit and other events in Seattle, and hosting the 2014 Pacific Rim Real Estate Summit at the Connoisseurs of Life Showroom in Kirkland. Jones will follow his speaking engagement Seattle’s Global Luxury Summit with an appearance in Vancouver, BC at another AREAA event: “Vancouver vs. Seattle,” which will highlight the strengths and weaknesses, similarities and differences, of each prominent West Coast Gateway city.
