Speaking of Luxury Portfolio


Above is the latest graph showing the number of $1 million-plus listings Luxury Portfolio has compared to the competition (click to enlarge). Very impressive – especially considering Luxury Portfolio was started in 2005 and most of the competition is decades old. Congratulations.

Stephanie Pfeffer, Director of Integrated Marketing for Luxury Portfolio will be in Dallas to teach associates how to best utilize the Luxury Portfolio marketing program to benefit their luxury listings. There will also be an overview of social media strategies for luxury home marketing.

There are two opportunities to see the presentation, but seating is limited:

9-11 am at the Ellen Terry Training Room

1-3 pm at Robb & Stucky Interiors in Plano
