Prudential luxury specialists attend retreat

Innovative ideas topped the agenda when members of Prudential California Realty’s new Luxury Properties Division gathered for a two-day retreat in Palm Desert.

T. Boone Pickens, founder and chairman of BP Capital Management, was the keynote speaker. He spoke about U.S. energy policy and its effect on California real estate values, providing insight into his plan for emphasizing energy alternatives such as wind and natural gas.

During the meetings, attendees shared ideas on how to represent clients during this challenging time for real estate.

Among those attending from Prudential’s La Jolla office were Greg Noonan, Nicki Marcellino and Maxine and Marti Gellens.
