  • Trophy Sale - The winner will be selected from the highest, closed sale price of all entries.
  • Trophy Listing - The winner will be selected from the highest listing price of all entries.
  • Community & Charitable Engagement - Finalists will be selected by a judge based on a submission that highlights the benefits of philanthropic activity and leveraging involvement to grow a luxury business.
  • Social Marketing Presence - Finalists will be selected by a judge based on a submission that demonstrates an innovative and thoughtful approach to social marketing that focuses not on selling homes but on prospect engagement and client retention.
  • Visual Marketing Campaign - Finalists will be selected by a judge based on a submission of a marketing campaign for a listing that includes high quality printed and digital materials using the latest technology and unique resources to capture the spirit of the luxury property.
