In September, the Nevada Association of Real Estate Brokers will host its Second Annual NAREB Luxury Series.
This year’s event theme, “Opening the Doors to the Changing Game of Luxury Real Estate,” involves three dynamic events designed to educate local agents on working in the growing Las Vegas luxury real estate market.
“This year’s event includes some of the most powerful speakers and minds in the luxury real estate market,” said Shanta Patton, NAREB Las Vegas president. “With the help of our sponsors and diamond sponsor, the Parent Team at Perl Mortgage, we were able to really build on last year’s success and create an opportunity for area real estate professionals to network and engage with experts they may know of but don’t encounter in their daily work.”
