Ladies of Lila Delman Journey to Madrid for International Symposium

The international "Ladies of Lila",  representing Lila Delman Real Estate, Rhode Island's leading luxury agency, were spotted lately in Madrid, Spain, as participants in an exclusive convocation of the world's leading real estate companies,  The International Symposium.


The peripatetic travelers have become our international ambassadors for the luxury real estate markets of Rhode Island.


Held at Madrid's Westin Palace Hotel recently, the International Symposium featured Melanie Delman, Leading Lady and President of Lila Delman, who joined luxury real estate leaders, speaking on the topic "Marketing Resort Markets".  Afiiliated with London's Mayfair Group, Lila Delman works with the global markets of international real estate.

Also attending were Robin Nicholson, Broker Associate and Catherine Gazder, International Fine Properties Liaison, in a conference that " allowed us to expand our global knowledge by building relationships with other leading real estate firms around the world and to sharing valuable insights on today’s luxury market. We were able to introduce Rhode Island as a good relative value and an attractive alternative to other regional coastal communities," according to Ms. Delman.


The Symposium’s program offered key insights on the globalization of the real estate market and how it will impact the future of the industry. Keynote speaker Alex MacPhail, founding director of rogenSi, provided motivation with his address, “Tough Minds for Tough Times.” REAL Trends partner Nicolai Kolding offered strategies on “Global Market Opportunities and Challenges.” Members from Hong Kong, Paris, London, Zurich and New York provided an update on the state of the world’s major markets. Other sessions focused on the expanded reach of Luxury Portfolio International™, marketing resort communities and the growing reach of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®.

The finest firms in each market are part of this collection of premier brokerages in 30 countries worldwide.


And where did the "Ladies of Lila" spend their evenings?  Eating paella and dancing the flamenco, Newport Seen  suspects.
