“Luxury Real Estate” Conference in Paris

March 6, 2009


Last January, 77 Great Estates attended the Luxury Real Estate International Conference held in Paris.



Dr Carl Peralta – Director of “77 Great Estates” – together with Mr John Brian Losh (Chairman & CEO of Luxury Real Estate) and Mr Raphael T. Harris Jr (Owner/Broker of World Real Estate, Sicily).





The conference was held at the Hotel du Louvre with their efficient concierge service which delivered all our real estate promotional packages to each participant’s room.

The 60 luxury real estate agents hailed from countries including Australia, Canada, Caribbean Islands, France, French Polynesia, Greece, Italy including Sicily, Poland, Portugal, Spain including Palma de Mallorca, UAE, USA including Rhode Island.



The personal relationships created with such agents will help us source high net worth individuals and blue chip companies which are already existing clients of said agents.  Their clients include international development companies, international franchise owners &/or directors, oligarchs, sheiks, Greek ship owners, sports’ team owners, actors such as John Travolta, Sharon Stone, Angelie Jolie and Brad Pitt just to mention a few.

The topics discussed by the highly experienced international real estate agents & by the real estate marketing company included:

  • creating a global brand for our real estate agency firm;
  • most cost effective methods of successfully marketing luxury properties internationally.  In fact, Joe Paris from 77 Great Estates’ Auction Department is offering said useful methods to owners of properties in Malta & in Sicily;
  • expansion of our real estate company networks in order to create a more global presence in each of our local markets;
  • during the conference we were accompanied by a real estate advocate, travel writer and photographer – click on the following link to view the photos courtesy of Francis Chiasson.
  • technology & trends offered on the internet including on  Our Marketing Department headed by Doreen Conti has already put such theories into practice;
  • quality service to our clients: vendors, lessors, buyers & lessees.  Julienne Borg from our Corporate Department is putting together all the necessary contacts in order to offer our clients a concierge service – a 1 stop shop.

At the end of the conference, practically all the participants agreed that the Maltese real estate, will retain and increase its value due to the islands’ limited space.

Once in Paris, Hugh Peralta & Associates – Advocates (Malta) referred Dr Carl Peralta to Dr Paul de Dree of Salans (Paris) which also enjoys offices in Almaty, Baku, Barcelona, Beijing, Berlin, Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Kyiv, London, Madrid, Moscow, New York, Noumea, Prague, Shangai, St. Petersburg, Tahiti & Warsaw.  Dr Dree & Dr C. Peralta discussed the existing real estate opportunities in Paris – such as judicial sales – and also the real estate potential in emerging countries such as Asian countries.

Dr Peralta had the opportunity to eat at excellent restaurants such as Le Jules Verne on the Eiffel Tower by Alan Ducasse; the Cafe’ de l’Homme situated in the museum of anthropology next to Trocadero square enjoying views of the Eiffel Tower and finally Bouef Sur Le Toit which reminded him of Cipriani in London.

We look forward to attending the next European conference; possibly in Malta – fingers crossed.
