DALLAS, Texas. October 26, 2012 Jim Walberg of Keller Williams Realty International joined over 100 top real estate professionals working in the upscale residential market, who converged in mid-October in Charleston (SC) for The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing's annual Leaders in Luxury (LIL) conference.

According to Walberg, the exclusive event was an invitation-only educational and networking opportunity for real estate professionals who handle million and multi-million dollar homes and estates. "This prestigious conference provides cutting-edge information on what's happening in the luxury market segment, offers insights on best practices in the business and creates valuable networking opportunities," said Walberg.

"Leaders in Luxury attendance is limited to proven professionals in the luxury home niche," said Laurie Moore-Moore, Founder of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing; the host company. "This gives LIL attendees the opportunity to build an exclusive network of contacts focused on the upscale residential industry, while sharing with the best in the business. Since competency is the key to working successfully with the luxury buyer and seller," added Moore-Moore, "LIL is designed to provide attendees with important knowledge and insights, giving them a competitive edge in meeting the needs of the affluent."

"Attending the Leaders in Luxury event is an investment for my clients," said Walberg, "I have to be proactive to stay on top of today's market conditions. By networking with the best in the business, sharing ideas and learning about the latest trends and outlooks, I can help my affluent clients find success where others are finding challenges."

Leaders in Luxury's presenters and panelists included some of the top luxury Realtors from the U.S. and Canada. Jim Walberg was one of the presenters invited with the title of his presentation, "The Age of Excellence". Dr. Ted Jones, Chief Economist for Stewart Title Company, shared predictions for the housing market, while Interior Designer Kay Green of Kay Green Design, Inc. spoke about the upcoming design and amenity trends in luxury residences.
