“I takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to  embrace the new.  But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.  There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”

—Alan Cohen

Alain Pinel Realtors luxury sales agents are invited every year to the Luxury Portfolio SUMMIT held at a luxury resort.  This year it was held at the historic Fountainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach.  I attended this fabulous event in a previous year when it was held at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.

Attendees gather in both large general sessions and smaller group workshops on various topics.  These sessions feature panel discussions and informational presentations from experts in the luxury field.  Most valuable perhaps is the networking we do with our other member luxury agents who come from all over the country and all over the world.

All work and no play is never the case, however.  Opulent luncheons, dinners and shows keep the attendees feeling pampered and living in the lap of luxury – for a couple of days anyway.
