The Kipp Team Attends Southern California Sotheby’s Networking Event


Earlier this month, the Kipp Team attended the August 19th Northern California Sotheby’s International Realty Networking Event with owners Dean and Stacy Jones, along with a collection of Realogics Sotheby's International Realty brokers. The delegation represented the Pacific Northwest region and was among an estimated 225 attendees at the all-day symposium held at the historic Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton, CA.

The events kicked off with a warm welcome from Andrew Greenwell, CEO and Principal of Venture Sotheby’s International Realty, who is also the star of BRAVO’s hit realty TV show Million Dollar Listing San Francisco. Greenwell acknowledged the many affiliates who had traveled from as far away as Seattle and Hawaii, noting the importance of referrals and feeder markets. He also introduced Fran Santangelo, VP Global Operations for Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates, LLC, who flew in from New Jersey, along with Wendy Purvey, Chief Marketing Officer.

A series of panel discussions followed the corporate updates. Our very own Jay Kipp participated in a presentation discussing best practices for brokers growing their business and outlined how to build a team.

“Our Brand has grown to a point where our affiliates are organizing regional events in between the larger Global Networking Events held,” said Dean Jones, CEO of Realogics Sotheby's International Realty. “It’s always inspiring to connect with our Brand executives and to meet many more of our affiliates in key feeder markets.”

The Bay Area is crucial to the Puget Sound region, as numerous executives and tech workers are relocating here, preferring Washington state’s bountiful job openings, lower cost of living and lack of state income tax.

Attending these events is always a blast. Not only do we get to network with industry professionals from markets around the world, but we hear about from corporate leaders at SIR on the extraordinary strides we are taking to be the best in the business.
