SYDNEY, Australia, Sep 18. Australian Michael Marquette, founder of Marquette Turner Luxury Homes, is one of only two non-American Award Nominees for the 13th Annual Luxury Real Estate Conference to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA held Saturday, October 11th through Tuesday, October 14th, 2008!
One of only four international real estate agents nominated in the category of Outstanding Rookie, Michael Marquette will be joined at the award’s conference at the Ritz-Carlton by fellow agency founder Simon Turner.
The Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate is the most prestigious luxury real estate organization in the world, and its website LuxuryRealEstate.com is the most viewed luxury real estate portal in the world. The invitation-only industry peak body is made up of almost 6000 offices worldwide.
Marquette comments that “It is such an honour to have been initially invited to be a part of the exclusive Who’s Who, so to have been nominated for an award is truly humbling”.
He continues “As an Australian I’m very proud to have been recognized. With around 120,000 luxury real estate agents in 65 countries the Who’s Who is an amazing network and I’m thrilled and excited that our hard work has been noticed. What this nomination also demonstrates is what Simon Turner and myself have long believed, that Australian real estate deserves a forward thinking, savvy and luxury agency to showcase some of the stunning properties that our country has to offer to a worldwide audience.
Furthermore “The launch of our company and its success and recognition in just 18 months is testament to the belief of our clients and others important to us in what Marquette Turner Luxury Homes has to offer, and we look forward to further cementing our place in the market.”
Other top real estate industry awards to be awarded during the conference include the Lifetime Achievement Award, the Billionaires Club, Extraordinary Philanthropist, and the Biggest Sale in 2007.
