Quick, where is Goodwood, and why would you probably have a great time there? Time’s up…Goodwood is less than an hour outside of London, England. It’s the home of Rolls Royce. We had an extraordinary opportunity to be invited to the factory for a private tour provided the the VP of Global Sales. When you next find yourself in that part of the world, I highly encourage a side trip to Goodwood. If you’re a fan of seeing, close up, how a company produces a product for which some of the most successful people in the world are willing to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars, your time there will be well spent. Once the price of a car, for example, reaches into the stratosphere as does a new Rolls Royce, it’s no longer a mode of transportation, rather it becomes a work or art. But that’s not the point. The point is how does it make the transformation from metal and steel to art. It’s the human touch, it’s the attention to detail, it’s the dedication to setting world-class standards. It’s rare for most to come across such works of art, but when you do, make sure you stop for a moment and just internalize it. The simple act of doing that will take you to greater heights in whatever you do…don’t let that kind of special appreciation pass you by. The “art of luxury real estate” is also something, when done extraordinarily well, is something to be admired as much as a work of art.
