AREAA Mega Luxury Real Estate Summit
AREAA (The Asian Real Estate Association of America) Silicon Valley Chapter held its Mega Luxury Real Estate Summit on July 23 at the Sheraton Palo Alto. Guests mingled over champagne and lunch, and enjoyed photo opportunities and interviews with realtor, writer, media correspondent, and television personality Herman Chan. Several exhibitors showcased products and services in the Expo Hall prior to the Real Estate Summit’s speakers series session. 
Speakers included nation's #1 Realtor, Ken DeLeon of DeLeon Realty, Top Producer Debbie Sharp of Keller Williams Luxury, Wells Fargo's Wealth Manager Mary Joseph and AREAA's member Christophe Choo from Beverly Hills, the award-winning top-producer and frequent cast member of the TV hit "Selling LA". Program moderated by Jim Park, AREAA's Global President.
Following the program, several of the 200 attendees continued on to the Luxury Real Estate Home Tour and receptions. Guests were transported in luxury coaches. Three stunning homes currently on the market were showcased:

AREAA Silicon Valley President Evan Huynh was ecstatic at the standing room-only turnout and enthusiastic feedback that quickly ensued.  "I thought our event was highly effective because of the avid participation of our high-end exhibitors, the distinguished speaker panel and the beautiful luxury listings tour.  At the end of the day, agents learned that entering and succeeding in the luxury market is not much different than any other and with execution of the same fundamental business principles, can be an attainable reality."
