The Billionaire’s Club + Best Print Marketing = AWESOME TRIP!

Last week Glennis Beacham and I went to San Diego to the Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate conference.

Beacham & Company is a member of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate. “Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate and LuxuryRealEstate.com are a compendium of the finest residential real estate firms from around the world. Inclusion is by my invitation only.”  It was founded by John Brian Losh.  You may remember that we went to the conference last year in Seattle.  

This year the conference was at the Grand Del Mar.  I have been very fortunate in my life to stay in a lot of beautiful hotels, but this may have been the prettiest one I’ve ever visited.

This was the view out over our golf course from our hotel room.

I took this photo on my iPhone of the lobby.  Gotta love that HDR iPhone feature :)  I know the photo isn’t great, but I loved those doors opening up to….

… this view!  Can you believe it?

Glennis and I really enjoyed all the speakers the the conference. We learned all kinds of very useful information from the speakers, but our favorite was Robert Frank, Best Selling Author and Wall Street Journal Columnist.  He just wrote a book called  The High-Beta Rich.

When we were not in our sessions we managed to have a little fun too!

Glennis LOVES hamburgers, so it’s impossible for us to go to California without hitting up the nearest In-N-Out Burger.

Who am I kidding?  I love In-N-Out too!  (I splurged with the cheese.  Duh!)

After our burgers I decide to roll myself on over to the pool….

I know… it looks terrible, right?  HA.

I spent the afternoon tanning myself for the big awards dinner that evening.  Soon Glennis got up from her nap (Hey!  She was on vacation!) and joined me.  Glennis was up for the Billionaire’s Award that night.  That’s right…  the award you get for selling a BILLION DOLLARS worth of real estate.

I thought she might be nervous, so I bought her a drink.  (Fine… I charged it to the room… I’m not made of money!)

She seemed to enjoy it…

So I grabbed one for myself too.  If you are wondering what we are drinking it’s called a Miami Vice, which is half strawberry daiquiri and half pina colada.  YUM.  I wish I had one right now.

That night we headed to the awards banquet.  (hey, architecture nerds, check out that ceiling!!)

Here is a picture of Glennis in front of the awards.  You may notice she is sporting Beacham Blue.  Gotta represent!

“Hey mom!  Take my picture too!”  You may noticed that we dressed almost exactly alike.  That actually happens more often than you would think…  Also, woah!  Look how much we look alike!  I’ve never really noticed that before… spooky… except that she’s gorgeous, so that’s a complement to ME.

Here is a Glennis getting her award!!!  Isn’t she cute?  We’re so proud of her, and we keep telling her… but she keeps saying “well if you sell real estate for long enough…”  Whatever!  It’s a HUGE DEAL!!!!  YEA MOM!!!

Oh yea, I got to go ACCEPT an award too (although Laura really should have been there to get it)!  

We won Best Print Marketing for “The Beacham Series!”

Hooray!  What a great day for Beacham & Company!

The next day we packed up and came home…  oh no, you heard right.  We were only there for 2 days!  YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU MIGHT NEED!!!

Love, Blayne

P.S.  Can you do me a favor?  I have been working all summer to get 1320 fans on our Beacham & Company facebook page.  We are 12 away!  Please help me by becoming a fan of us on “The Facebook.”  I would really appreciate it.
