Angel Fire, NM October 6, 2014 – Ablaze in the glory of its peak fall colors, Angel Fire rolled out the proverbial ‘red carpet’ to more than 60 Keller Williams (KW) brokers and guests October 2-4 for Retreat Angel Fire 2014. The annual event, now in its third year, gathers key KW brokers from target markets in Texas and New Mexico to introduce them to Angel Fire, and allow them to experience the area firsthand.
Planned and hosted by Keller Williams Realty Angel Fire (KWAF), the event was much more than an enjoyable day or two of sightseeing. Attendees participated in business planning workshops led by Keller Williams business Coach Debbie Frapp. Billed as “Leadership and Business Coaching in a Resort Atmosphere”, the schedule of seminars was interspersed with presentations by leaders from the Village of Angel Fire and Angel Fire Resort (AFR), as well as excursions to local points of interest. Retreat attendees were treated to lunch and a tour of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park, an evening reception at a luxury home listing, and dinner at the AFR Country Club.
The annual event is held the first weekend of October – dates specifically chosen by the organizers, both to take advantage of the beauty of local fall foliage, and to bring visitors in what has traditionally been a slower “shoulder” season for tourism. With that idea in mind, the retreat concludes with lunch on Saturday so plenty of the weekend is left for attendees to explore Angel Fire on their own. From hiking to golfing to zip lining, the visiting KW brokers stayed on as hoped and sampled a wide range of activities.
“We want to introduce Angel Fire to luxury Realtors in the markets our buyers come from, so they in turn can introduce Angel Fire to their clients looking for vacation homes and properties” explained KWAF Qualifying Broker Stuart Hamilton. It was such a successful introduction that more than one visiting KW broker immediately began the hunt for their very own Angel Fire ‘Retreat’ – asking to be shown available house and condo listings with an eye to purchasing. With the hope of making many more such successful introductions, the KWAF Realtors and staff are already hard at work planning for Retreat Angel Fire 2015.
