Leading Real Estate Companies of the World is the largest worldwide network of premier branded companies. Many of the most prestigious independent luxury brokerages in the world make use of the wide variety of services there. The company’s website launched in 2005 presenting some 15,000 of the world’s most expensive properties – the company claims some 1.2 million well to do visitors per year visit the site.

Not to be too much of a stickler, but the site did achieve 100,000 visits in a month previously, but the average traffic now is more like 20,000 per month according to Quantcast. And sure enough, over 40 percent of the visitor demographic do make above $100,000 a year – but more on actual company metrics when we profile them later on this month.

Great people in a great place.

  1. Phil. Thanks for a great piece and for the links out to the video too! It’s a fair point on the traffic. We like to underpromise and overdeliver. And we’d certainly love to be profiled – thank you for the offer. Feel free to contact me and I’ll set something up.
    Oh.. and agree… Kiawah is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Aren’t you lucky?
    Best.

    • @Stephanie, You are more than welcome, I liked very much what your company is doing. I will contact you very soon about a more detailed look. Again, thanks for taking the time to stop in. I actually have many stories about Kiawah, interestingly the man who cut the first timber from the Island was family. When the Royals owned the Island, it was an outdoors persons paradise. Untouched, it is still one of the finest “green developments” on the Eastern Seaboard, as you probably already know.

      Always,
      Phil
