By: | | Share Tweet Email

Michael Saunders spoke on numerous discussion panels during September’s LeadingRE Global Symposium in Greece, surrounded by 200 of the world’s leading elite independent brokers and agents.

Closing the chapter on one decade and beginning a new one inspires reflection on the lessons learned and preparation of what is to come. Michael Saunders, Founder and CEO of Michael Saunders & Company, is always looking for fruitful opportunities to learn something new that can be carried into the future. In September, she – along with agents Klaus Lang, Maurice Menager, and Lin Dunn – attended the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World’s Global Symposium in Greece to experience and engage with 200 of the most elite independent real estate professionals in the industry.

Networking, comradery, insights, and experiences from agents in markets around the world shared a wealth of information of what 2019 taught them and preparation for 2020. Michael spoke on a selection of panel discussions as well as took the opportunity of listening to economic and global market experts for a glimpse of how real estate is shifting. She has brought that information back to Sarasota and our tri-county region to take the Company into the next year for the best solutions and guidance to give customers an exceptional experience.

In the third video Powerful Relationships: Leading real estate companies unite during Global Symposium Michael discusses the importance and impact of long-lasting relationships built with our global affiliates and other independent real estate brokers around the world.

No one tells a story quite like Michael. In the final video, Experiencing Greece the Michael Saunders way, Michael shares her personal experiences touring the unbeaten paths of Athens, Greece.


Market insights and real estate trends inspired conversation that spoke volumes for what could be expected in 2020 throughout Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties’ real estate. Watch Michael’s video showcased in our blog Q3 2019 Market Snapshot: Sarasota, Manatee & Charlotte County.

We’re local and we’re global

For Klaus Lang, Lin Dunn and Maurice Menager the Global Symposium was an appreciation of being among peers, making connections, and recognizing the power of Michael Saunders & Company. Having attended the LeadingRE Las Vegas Conference, Klaus said he prefers the global event for its smaller scale.

“It’s much more personal,” he said. “It’s an eye-opener in a certain way and confirmation in others. This is how we have to do business; we have to think internationally, we are selling a lifestyle here. Everyone at the symposium knows Sarasota because they know Michael Saunders, but they need to know what’s inside Sarasota.”

Making lasting and respected connections to help customers with a worldly perspective was the take-away message for Klaus, Lin, and Maurice. Each of them expressed the importance of representing the Company, being connected to Michael, discovering ways to improve their international business and relationships. Lin and Maurice called the experience fantastic and sensational.

“Michael Saunders & Company is special, but we don’t know how special until getting involved in something like this,” Lin said. “Michael is the most respected woman in real estate.”

Lin, Klaus, and Maurice all agree the LeadingRE Global Symposium is a unique and worthwhile opportunity they hope every Michael Saunders & Company agent can experience.
