Luxury Portfolio Summit 2015: Zabel Property wins awards

Zabel Property won awards in two separate categories at this year's Annual General Meeting of the "Leading Real Estate Companies of the World" (LeadingRE) and its luxury offshoot, "Luxury Portfolio", in Las Vegas. LeadingRE is the world's biggest association of independent real estate companies. "These two awards underscore our international credentials and our ability to operate on an international basis. They confirm Zabel Property's global focus, with over 70 per cent of our clients coming from outside Germany", said Thomas Zabel, CEO of Zabel Property.

This year's prize in the new "Top 5 Global Referral Award - Outgoing" category, which honors companies with the greatest number of referrals to partner companies, made the trip from Las Vegas to Berlin. Zabel was also nominated for the prestigious "Top 3 Luxury Portfolio Brokerages Worldwide" Award, as well as being accepted into the Global Alliance Club.

The 2015 Luxury Portfolio Summit featured case studies and market research findings together with a panel discussion on luxury real estate throughout the world. Discussion groups focused on new marketing ideas, channels and tools to promote exclusive real estate on a global basis.

This was the third time that Zabel Property had participated in the summit - an excellent opportunity for the company to talk about and represent the German, and especially the Berlin, real estate market. Peter Rabitz, Zabel Property's Director of Premium Real Estate, took part in a panel discussion at which he was able to bring the company's referrals expertise to the attention of the delegates. Zabel Property's success in this field explains the company's high conversion rate with foreign real estate investors.


The summit was not just about exchanging information; it also offered participants the opportunity to converse about issues at management level and to establish and expand their contacts with globally active cooperation partners. With this in mind, one of the priorities for Zabel Property was to acquire cooperation partners in a number of target regions including Qatar and Switzerland. The next international network meeting is to be the "Luxury Portfolio International Symposium", to be held in Berlin between October 11 and October 13, 2015, which Zabel Property will help to prepare.
