Juwai.com has appointed celebrity real estate agent Jennifer Berman as its first-ever Ambassador in the United States. Ms. Berman will represent Juwai.com at events, in the media and via social media. She will share her knowledge at Juwai.com-organized conferences in China, including its Agent Summits and Developer Summits. And she will introduce to the portal company luxury agents who have questions about reaching Chinese buyers.
“I’m honored to be representing Juwai.com as the single biggest resource for smart agents who want to appeal to international buyers”, said Ms. Berman, “Chinese buyers spent $52 billion on American real estate last year, and the estimates are for them to be spending about $220 billion per year by 2020. The opportunity is just huge for luxury agents who want to tap it.”
Based in Beverly Hills, Ms. Berman is former General Manager of Hilton Hyland, the top real estate firm in Beverly Hills, and has had senior roles at both First Team Real Estate and Keller Williams. Ms. Berman has also been a host and moderator for Inman Connect, real estate’s premier technology conference series.
Ms. Berman’s real estate consulting clients include brothers Josh and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman, stars of the Bravo network’s TV show, Million Dollar Listing. The Altmans have sold more than $1.5 billion of real estate, mostly in Los Angeles’ most rarified neighborhoods: the Sunset Strip, Hollywood Hills and the “Platinum Triangle” of Beverly Hills, Bel-Air and Holmby Hills.
Simon Henry, co-CEO of Juwai.com, said:
“My co-CEO Andrew and I have known Jennifer for many years. No one epitomizes better than Jennifer the brains, emotional intelligence and energy that it takes to succeed in the real estate business.
“Jennifer is one of the most exciting professionals in the business today, and we are just so pleased to have her as our Ambassador in the US.
“Jennifer has been a constant early adopter of innovation in the US. Her track record and industry ties are exceptional. We look forward to helping more real estate professionals grow their business, with the announcement of Jennifer as our first Ambassador.
“When Jennifer is representing Juwai.com, we will know that things are in safe hands."
