How did you become interested in MIPIM? 
“As a natural-born entrepreneur, I am always thinking of ways to network and learn from other industry professionals,” he says. “I wanted to expand my business internationally and after much research I came across MIPIM. I have been following MIPIM for the last three years, saying each year that I have to finally make it. This is my second year attending MIPIM.

What do you hope to get out of it? 
“Outside of the knowledge gained from conferences as such, I want to start building long-term relationships with other professionals in the real estate industry,” he says.

What makes MIPIM relevant to REALTORS® like you? 
“With my expertise in commercial real estate, I work with investors all over the country investing in the Chicago market,” says Hall. “To be a resource to my clients, I need to be aware of what’s going on in various markets internationally. In addition, I may have local investors that are looking to buy property internationally, and I’d like to be able to refer them to agents based in those countries.”
