Networking and Delivering Value – February’s Focus for the Luxury Home Marketing Group

The Raleigh-based Luxury Home Marketing Group focused on interaction among members to deliver value to their clients, during February’s meeting.

“The strength of the Luxury Home Marketing Group is that we are a coalition of real estate leaders, sharing marketing expertise and knowledge with one another,” said LHMG President Linda Craft. “We’ve recently grown to 16 members, all of whom demonstrate consistent success in the luxury home market. This allows us to bring an unprecedented amount of marketplace knowledge to each of our clients, who have $750,000 and up home value.”

The Luxury Home Marketing Group website includes profiles of every member, and a home-search feature for homes in the $750,000 and up marketplace. (   Members also share their knowledge about the marketplace via social media, including on their Facebook page.

The February meeting was hosted by the Luxury Home Marketing Group’s exclusive marketing partner, Towne Mortgage of the Carolinas. Representatives outlined details of Jumbo Loans and the role they play in the Estate Home market.
