Rimontgó returns triumphant from The Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® 2012 Annual Conference

Three gold medals and one silver!

President awardsThe Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® 2012 and Luxury Portfolio International Annual Conference, held this March 22nd to 26th at the Waldorf Astoria and the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek in Orlando, Florida, was another highly fruitful event for Rimontgó.

The event, which brought together nearly one thousand of the world’s leading real estate agents and industry experts from across the globe such as Matthew Ferrara , Steve Harney , Mike Staver , Steve Murray and Ian Morris , Jim Taylor from Harrison Group , Spike Jones , Michio Kaku , Marc Davison and Lisa Bloom , is one of the most important international conferences of its kind on the annual calendar, and once again the Rimontgó team took their place in the spotlight.

Having won Best Overall Website in 2011, the firm scooped an impressive amount of silverware in recognition for its ongoing hard work, winning three first prizes: the New Media Marketing Award, The President’s Award and the RHS International Outstanding Contributor Award, as well as a second place prize for The Best Overall Website and accession to the exclusive Global Alliance Club, the latter of which recognises firms that have successfully closed important cross-border (and in some cases cross-continent) transactions. Of over 600 member firms, only 59 have achieved this, and Rimontgó is one of them.

First placeThe company was represented in Florida by its principals, José and Antonio Ribes Bas, and head of its IT department, Ignacio Artagoitia, who were delighted to take home this year’s New Media Award, which acknowledges outstanding achievement in the development and application of the latest trends, techniques and technologies in the field. These include the most innovative feature: Rimontgó’s own URL shortener (rmg.to), QR Quick Response Code Generator, branded pages on Facebook and mobile-friendly websites and blogs, amongst others. All integrated into Rimontgó’s 100 per cent in-house developed Real Estate Management Software – a factor for which Rimontgó was singled out for its achievements.

The ReloHomeSearch (RHS) award for Outstanding International Contributor was first won in 2007 and this year it received again for the leading part played by Rimontgó in helping to drive the ReloHomeSearch website by uploading electronic data feeds with top quality information and properties. As this is one of the most powerful luxury property search tools in the world, it is quite an honour.

José Ribes BasRimontgó was furthermore included in the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® 2012 President’s award, along with other distinguished professionals such as Mr. Ken Baris , Mrs. Dawn FetherstonMrs. Robin Mueck , Mrs. Rosey Koberlein , Mr. William Watson Jr. and Mrs. Kim Givens , who received this personal and special prize from the President of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® for their contribution throughout the year.

In addition, Rimontgó was again nominated for Best Overall Website, eventually ending as first runner-up, but perhaps it would have been a big ask to bag the top prize two years in a row. Ever ambitious, though, the IT team will be eyeing that prize next year as they seek to further develop and perfect the online presence of Rimontgó, its associates and its clients.
