President of Luxury Portfolio International™ , Paul Boomsma, had this to say about these latest additions;
“Our growth in new markets is a positive sign, not only for our program, but also the strength of the luxury market as a whole. Our growing share of the luxury real estate market continues to strengthen the network and provide additional exposure and business opportunities for all members.”
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.
We will also profile the company once their representatives get back to us. Until then, we hope you enjoy the images and news. On a personal note, being a Charleston, SC boy myself, Kiawah Island is one of the most beautiful places on Earth - and Kiawah Island Real Estate a company I have personally worked with before. Great people in a great place.
