by

Last week Melanie Delman, Robin Nicholson, Geer Messinger, Catherine Gazder and I had the pleasure of attending the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World International Symposium in Venice, Italy.  The conference included speakers Jim Marks of Virtual Results, Matthew Ferrera of Matthew Ferrera & Company, and a special interview with Federico Pratesi of Pratesi Linens.

Panel discussions included market updates, the differences in real estate practices around the globe, embracing the global marketplace, and leveraging the new emerging markets.

Countries represented at the conference included Canada, Turkey, Bahamas, England, Italy, Switzerland, Croatia, Romania, France, Ireland, Switzerland, Mexico, Mauritius, Greece, United Arab Emirates and the United States.

The conference also afforded us the opportunity to reconnect with some of our US affiliates, including Anthony Cutugna of Houlihan Lawrence in NY, David Perry-Miller of Ebby Halliday in Texas, and Richard Brown III of Stribling Associates in New York.

The symposium finished with a tour of two luxury properties. A penthouse condo located in the historic center of Venice's famous Giudecca Island with views of Piazza San Marco.

The second property, located in Canal Grande, a historic apartment within a building originally designed by the famous architect Lorenzetti.
