Sarasota Real Estate – The World Comes to Florida

Timing, it’s said, is everything.  So with Southwest Florida’s revived real estate market grabbing headlines in the worldwide media, there could be no better time for the leadership of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World—and its luxury platform Luxury Portfolio International—to converge on Florida for their annual global conference.

Joining them in Orlando this weekend is a sizable contingent from Michael Saunders & Company, led by Michael and Drayton Saunders.  When all is said and done, close to a thousand attendees will take home the message that our region of Florida is not only open for business, but also leading the U.S. real estate recovery with some of the best buying opportunities dollar-for-dollar of any market in the country.

Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, of which Michael Saunders is a current board member and former two-term chair, is a global network comprised of 550 of the most prestigious independent real estate firms in the world.   As such, those in attendance at the Orlando conference control the activities of 140,000 agents throughout the U.S. and 30 countries abroad—who routinely refer buyers to our sector of the Gulf Coast.

Also taking place in Orlando is the international summit of Luxury Portfolio International, where top real estate executives are similarly networking their sellers’ luxury properties while sharing best practices to address the changing needs of today’s high-net-worth buyers and sellers.

Luxury Portfolio International is regarded throughout the industry as a “who’s who” of the world’s most powerful independent brokerages.  Its award-winning website regularly features more $1 million-plus properties than any other luxury real estate organization.  A showcase for over 25,000 of the world’s finest properties, luxuryportfolio.com attracts over 1.2 million visitors each year.

Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Luxury Portfolio International are just two of the international affiliations that Michael Saunders & Company has hand-picked over the years for their ability to successfully market our seller’s properties to the most qualified buyers—no matter where in the world they may be.

Our roster of exclusive brokerage partnerships doesn’t end there.  It includes Christie’s International Real Estate, whose ability to link the world’s finest art with its most important properties has resulted in a by-invitation-only union of luxury real estate companies—whose success is driven by global awareness of the Christie’s name and the relevant expertise of its member firms.  In addition, we offer sellers in every price range our exclusive affiliation with Mayfair International Realty, the foremost group of real estate professionals in the U.K.—whose citizens form one of the largest groups of international buyers in Southwest Florida.

Wherever there are gatherings such as this weekend’s international confab in Orlando, you’ll find representatives of Michael Saunders & Company actively engaged in the dialogue; even as we network our sellers’ properties and seek new ways to reach the most foreign and domestic buyers.  Once it’s sold, you probably won’t care where your home’s new owner comes from.  Before that, however, you’ll want to be sure its being seen by as many buyers as possible.  When you list with an agent from Michael Saunders & Company you have that assurance.
