Attendees were greeted with champagne and hors-d'oeuvres from Chef Esam Shaqir of Tamra Mediterranean Grill with desserts from Maison Alyzee.

The panelists discussed what homeowners are looking for when building luxury properties throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Topics included sustainability, material selections, design collaboration across all disciplines involved, and of course, lead times of products. Anthony Bartorillo from Reynaers shared insight on how there has been increased demand for home automation, including the success of Reynaers Hi-Finity doors.
