Luxury Home Marketing Group Set September for Strategic Planning and Continuing Education

Raleigh, NC, September 29, 2012 --( Members of the Raleigh-based Luxury Home Marketing Group set aside September for continuing-education and an additional, unscheduled, homes tour. September is traditionally the group’s annual retreat; however, an increase in marketplace interest in elite homes prompted the scheduling of a tour.

“Our group’s strength is pooling the sum of the knowledge and connections of our members, on behalf of our clients,” said LHMG Vice-President Linda Craft. “We are actively working on increasing our marketing, via a newly-designed website, increased social media activity and on-going education. Our annual retreat gives us a chance to turn off the smartphones, disconnect from the internet and really trade knowledge.”

Group members also formally adopted the organization’s mission statement to reflect their group strengths and focus: A coalition of real estate leaders sharing their knowledge and marketing expertise with their clients and each other.

This month’s additional activity included a tour of properties in Belmont Ridge and Wakefield.

Steina DeAndrade, Brenda Holden, Linda Kolarov, Linda Lee, Deborah Nance and Lindsay Taylor are also in the group’s 2012 membership. The group was formed in 2004 as a coalition of luxury home real estate experts, representing luxury home buyers and sellers with extraordinary real estate expertise and service in Raleigh, Cary, Wake Forest, Durham, Chapel Hill, Research Triangle Park and surrounding counties.
