Leading Real Estate Companies of the World
After an extensive, thorough search for the most complementary and impactful network for our company and our clients, Turpin management selected Leading Real Estate Companies of the World to be the vehicle for accomplishing our network affiliation goals.
The Leading Real Estate Companies of the World network of brokerages encompasses 150,000 select and highly skilled associates and 5,000 offices with 600 of the best independent companies in 35 countries around the world. High standards are required to qualify for membership in this elite group.
This network dominates the list of the top 500 real estate companies in the United States, with 6% more sales than its closest competitor. Referral business between agents generates nearly 60,000 referrals with a 40% conversion rate. National averages on conversion are in the 20% range. This means when clients of fellow affiliates are moving to our area, we are on the receiving end of those referrals, one of whom could be your buyer.
The affiliate brokerages sell 20% more properties priced above $1 million than any other network, with 23,000 sales valued at $43 billion. This figure is enhanced by overall production at $380 billion, more than any other national network or franchise.
"Quality by Association" is critical in the internet arena. By linking all of the member websites, which typically display the entire Multiple Listing Service housing inventory, a buyer going to any of these sites can access nearly 2 million listings. As soon as your home appears on our site, it has instant exposure in these other markets where the strong brands of our fellow affiliates draw very high web traffic. In a recent Harris Poll study, the real estate websites with the highest traffic are local brokerage sites.
With Turpin, our clients have the best of both worlds... a strong local real estate brand and the right connections with the best local and regional brands in the global marketplace to provide the greatest possible exposure to the largest pool of potential buyers.
The centerpiece of the Luxury Portfolio program is the website, www.LuxuryPortfolio.com, which features the most comprehensive view of luxury properties by its membership. The site showcases the Fine Broker Collection, lifestyle information, home design trends and offers one of the most compelling presentations of luxury properties on the internet.
The look and feel of LuxuryPortfolio.com graphically creates the atmosphere of a fine art gallery. Property information is artfully presented with quality photography, photographic tours and essential property and navigational information easily at hand. By creating a compelling user experience, LuxuryPortfolio.com delivers a reason for the consumer to return as an ongoing resource. Turpin's placement of your home on LuxuryPortfolio.com will expose buyers to your home - on their first and all return visits.
Quality by association is critical to this marketing effort. While there is an abundance of luxury print media, studies show that affluent home buyers are conducting housing research online and that they respond favorably to websites that appeal to their unique needs. A highly effective marketing strategy employed by LuxuryPortfolio.com is the use of institutional advertising. High net-worth consumers are driven to LuxuryPortfolio.com through targeted marketing in such publications as Town & Country, Departures, Veranda, Four Seasons, Architectural Digest, ForbesLife, Virtuoso Life, The Robb Report, New York Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, DuPont Registry Magazine, Unique Homes Magazine, and luxury hotel in-room publications.
While quality is the primary goal in the presentation of properties on this site, quantity cannot be overlooked. It is a difficult balance to achieve, and LuxuryPortfolio.com is leading the way in the luxury web site category with the most U.S. listings over $1 million - all meeting their stringent quality requirements. LuxuryPortfolio.com currently features over 8,000 properties.
