DMAR Digest | Week of January 17
Lunch with an Icon | February 15
DMAR's Lunch with an Icon is a quarterly series that invites 10 Realtor® members to an intimate forum to connect with and learn from local real estate icons. To kick-off the 2022 series, we’re taking it up a notch – 10 in fact – and inviting 100 Realtor® attendees to join us for lunch with a national icon: Christophe Choo.
Christophe is an award-winning, top-producing luxury real estate agent with over 32 years of experience serving Los Angeles' most prominent Westside neighborhoods including Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills and Bel Air. He has been recognized as the top 1% of Coldwell Banker agents worldwide and was voted the No. 1 Real Estate Video Influencer in North America.
This is a unique opportunity to hear from one of the most successful individuals in the business, ask questions and network with other engaged Realtors®. The conversation will be moderated by a member of DMAR's YPN leadership team with plenty of time for Q&A from attendees.
