Asheville, NC, October 27, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Ron E Armstrong of Keller Williams Professionals in Asheville, NC joined over 100 top real estate professionals serving the upscale residential market who converged the first week of October in San Juan, Puerto Rico for The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing’s annual Leaders in Luxury (LIL) conference.
According to Armstrong, the exclusive event is a once-a-year, invitation-only educational and networking opportunity for real estate professionals who handle million and multi-million dollar homes and estates.
"For the 5th consecutive year I was privileged to attend this invitation-only event limited to 125 of the country's top producing Luxury agents,” said Armstrong. “The relationships alone are worth the price of admission. Since the high-end market is all about targeting the right high net worth individuals and assisting them with their sales and purchases, these relationships become critical. I can literally call the right agents in Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, etc. to let them know we have the perfect property for their client. For me it is about playing "matchmaker" and specializing in real estate stress reduction for all of our clients."
"Leaders in Luxury attendance is limited to proven professionals in the luxury home niche," said Laurie Moore-Moore, Founder of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, the event host. “This gives LIL attendees the opportunity to build an exclusive network of contacts focused on the upscale residential industry, while sharing ideas with the best in the business. Since competency is the key to working successfully with the luxury buyer and seller,” added Moore-Moore, “LIL is designed to provide attendees with important knowledge and insights, giving them a competitive edge in meeting the needs of the very affluent.”

He has been representing buyers and sellers of luxury real estate in Western North Carolina for over a decade.
