The World is Your Stage

AREAA’s Global and Luxury Summit is an opportunity to learn from some of the most influential market makers and industry experts on topics related to international investment, emerging markets, working with international clients, and executing cross-border transactions. Learn about the latest trends, best practices, and the world’s hottest emerging luxury and investment markets in this powerful real estate event.

AREAA represents a broad array of professionals within the real estate industry and our Global & Luxury Summit is widely considered the best conference of its kind in the US. Over half of our members have executed at least one international transaction in the past year, and many more work in their local market’s luxury sector. The Global and Luxury Summit provides the perfect opportunity to connect with agents and industry professionals from all over the world, and to share your markets challenges and opportunities.

Leverage our network, take advantage of our resources – the 2016 AREAA Global and Luxury Summit is your opportunity to make the world your stage and take your business to heights you never dreamt possible.

Globally Connected

It’s no secret that Asian Americans and Asian nationals are the main driving force behind today’s international
and luxury markets. Each year the volume of cross-border transactions grow in all sectors of real estate – residential,
commercial, and investment. As the world becomes more connected and international investment expands to
more regions than ever before, it is crucial to position yourself as a trusted and knowledgeable agent for
international buyers and investors.

Luxury Redefined

Around the world, and in our own backyard, luxury markets have redefined the real estate industry. Learn how
to expand or break into this market and establish yourself as the premiere luxury agent in your city. While record setting luxury sales make the headlines, the luxury market has enough potential and opportunity for the sophisticated and well-informed agent to thrive.
