The first-of-the-year edition of Luxury Portfolio International®’s widely watched “Luxury Hour” series will bring together a quartet of real estate industry heavyweights, discussing which external and intra-industry drivers are most poised to impact the market in 2023 — and how. Luxury Portfolio International (LPI) is the world’s leading luxury real estate network and the luxury arm of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) — the largest global network of premier independent brokerage firms.
The special live webcast takes place Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EST, and is free to registered viewers.
LPI President Mickey Alam Khan will moderate the event, which will feature key insights from Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist of the National Association of Realtors (NAR); Chandler Mount, Principal Researcher of Luxury Portfolio International and Founder/CEO of Affluent Consumer Research Company; Hoby Hanna, CEO of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services; and Steve Walter, realtor, Michael Saunders & Company.
Also on the agenda will be an in-depth look at important insights gleaned from LPI’s latest “State of Luxury Real Estate” (SOLRE) report. The study, which was released at the beginning of the new year, includes key analysis from affluent consumers in nearly 30 major markets in the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East.
“One of the key areas of focus for our upcoming discussion will be anticipating market conditions,” said Alam Khan. “Over the course of the past two+ years, agents and consumers have struggled with uncertainty. What is different about this year is that real estate professionals are more aware of the potential headwinds from their local economic conditions, and therefore anticipate that 2023 will be a stronger year as they build resilience and adapt to change. The input shared by this dynamic panel of experts will undoubtedly be invaluable for all, moving forward.”
