Luxury Marketing Course Hosted by Zephyr Real Estate Is Huge Success

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) - Zephyr Real Estate hosted the two-day Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS) training course led by Laurie Moore-Moore of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing on June 10 and 11. The event was an overwhelming success with agents from around the country in attendance at St. Mary's Cathedral Event Center in San Francisco.

In 2006, Unique Homes Magazine honored Mrs. Moore as one of the 35 Most Influential Leaders in the Luxury Home Market. The Real Estate Intelligence Report declared she is one of the ten people having the most impact on U.S. residential real estate in the last 25 years. The Institute is the premier training and research organization serving real estate professionals who work in the luxury home market internationally.

The event drew agents from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, including some from as far away as Boston and Miami. There was also a strong local presence, with agents from many Bay Area firms including Zephyr Real Estate, Alain Pinel, Coldwell Banker and Intero Real Estate.

"As Zephyr increases its luxury market share in San Francisco, it is important to keep current with the latest marketing trends. Supplementing our in-house training and development with courses such as this ensures our agents have the tools they need to successfully service our clientele," said Matthew Borland, Managing Partner of Zephyr Real Estate. Borland brought the event to San Francisco after being impressed by the CLHMS training he took in 2007.

"The Luxury Home Marketing course was an amazing two days. I have the opportunity to work with many affluent San Francisco buyers and sellers, and this course truly honed my skills and gave me valuable insight into working with my most successful clients. I'm grateful that my broker was the one to sponsor this informative event," added Stephanie Johnson, Realtor® and Top Producer at Zephyr's Pacific Heights office. (
