Kicking off the celebration with a lively reception, LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR) hosted their second regional networking event, LIV CONNECT 2018, to further expand Sotheby’s International Realty brand knowledge and network connections. Real estate professionals from around the Sotheby’s International Realty Network joined together in Denver, CO to collaborate and learn from leaders both within and outside of the industry.
“We, at LIV SIR, are honored to host an event where our people can come together and learn from one another while strengthening relationships within our global network of real estate experts. Events like this ensure that we are well informed, well connected, and well equipped to serve each other and our clients at the highest level,” said Scott Webber, president of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty.
A live band, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and incredible conversation filled LIV SIR’s Cherry Creek office on the evening of October 4th, as a welcome reception for the conference. LIV Sotheby’s International Realty also celebrated their 10-year anniversary, as being a part of the Sotheby’s International Realty Brand – the most esteemed real estate brand in the world. When Webber founded the firm in 2008, the firm consisted of 125 brokers and three offices – now, today, LIV SIR has 16 offices throughout Denver Metro, Boulder, Breckenridge, and the Vail Valley, and over 400 brokers and support staff.
LIV CONNECT officially kicked-off on October 5th with Webber welcoming all for an incredible day of learning and networking. Following Webber was the one-and-only Mike Shanahan, former NFL coach of the Denver Broncos (among other teams), who shared his insight on leadership and success.
“It’s kind of something when you work at something, isn’t it,” Shanahan said while telling a story about achieving success. “You can do anything, if you have a plan, if you have preparation.”
Other speakers included Kristen Muller, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Communications for LIV SIR, Julie Leonhardt LaTorre, Chief Operating Officer for Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC, Kevin Thompson, Chief Marketing Officer for Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC, and Carol Elkins, Senior Vice President of Jewelry for Sotheby’s Auction House. The afternoon welcomed Larry Kendall, author of Ninja Selling, and Liz Bentley, CEO of Liz Bentley Associates, along with two panels of record-breaking brokers from around the Network.
