Century 21 Canada’s blog ran an article this afternoon about last week’s panel on “Tapping the Global Real Estate Market” at Inman’s Real Estate Connect Conference in San Francisco.
Don Lawby, president of C21 Canada, is quoted extensively as well he should be. It’s his company’s blog, after all, and he had some common sense, down to earth advice for American agents trying to find Canadian buyers … this will benefit the Canadians via a trickle-down effect. The more the agents here know, the better for all involved.
None of my advice was included in the article, but the most-commented upon advice was part of the story:
To build your business even more, attend major international events, such as Wimbledon and the Cannes Film Festival, network with participants, and follow up on the contacts you make.
I actually had planned on skipping Cannes this year as I found the whole thing a bit … what’s the word … tacky. Too much paparazzi, too much Brangelina. And it’s all new money, don’t you know.
Maybe I’ll have to reconsider. It’s something for me to think about when I’m sun bathing in Villefranche, France next week …[tags]Phoenix real estate, Canadian buyers Arizona real estate[/tags]
