Thousands of affiliates, brokers, agents and executives of Sotheby’s International Realty arrived in Vancouver, Canada for the 2019 Global Networking Event, which was truly Next Level. This highly recognized networking event gave everyone involved with the SIR brand the opportunity to build stronger connections and gain insightful knowledge from top industry leaders, executives and even President and CEO, Philip White.
At this year’s GNE, members from over 35 countries were introduced to a new brand marketing campaign called Only. This particular campaign will provide custom marketing materials for all affiliates that remain true to the brand of Sotheby’s International Realty.
Attendees enjoyed captivating presentations and discussions with featured guests Realogy CEO, Ryan Schneider and surprise Keynote Speaker, Academy Award wining actress, Gwyneth Paltrow. Ryan touched on new and upcoming technology innovations while Gwyneth shared the importance of creating a timeless brand that connects with consumers. SIR couldn’t agree more with the key points of Gwyneth Paltrow and introduced Agents of Change, an exclusive program with charitable partner New Story. Agents were able to commit to the program by making a loyal pledge.
ONESIR associates met with friends and partners from Japan, Mexico, Italy, New York, Thailand and beyond, strengthening networks and relationships with our connections around the world. One of the highlights was a special presentation by our Founder and CEO Mayi de la Vega. She discussed what makes our brand Next Level and how fostering a a sense of community is what makes you succeed in Real Estate. “When you have a vision, determination and you allow yourself to be inspired by the Sotheby’s brand, the possibilities are endless. I am a testament to that.” she told the audience.
