Luxury Real Estate Specialists
Drawing upon their success as one of the world's oldest art auction houses, Christie's implemented an innovative real estate venture in 1995. Integrating centuries of experience with a hand-selected network of talented brokers, Christie's International Real Estate was formed to satisfy the lifestyle requirements of discerning clientele.
Christie's, originally founded in 1766 by James Christie, pursued an innovative real estate venture in 1995 by acquiring Great Estates, a luxury real estate network founded in 1987. Christie's International Real Estate is an affiliate network and has offices in London, New York, Hong Kong, Beverly Hills, Chicago, and Palm Beach; and more than 135 affiliated brokerages in Europe; North, Central, and South America; and the Caribbean as well as Asia, Africa, and Oceania. On January 11, 2011, the company changed its name from Christie's Great Estates to Christie's International Real Estate.
The marketing of fine art and high-end properties proved to be a natural combination, resulting in a real estate marketing powerhouse driven by the passion and success of the Christie's name and the local connections and expertise of seasoned brokers.
By cultivating this unique balance of worldwide scope with a personal touch, Christie's International Real Estate has become a global authority on the effective marketing of fine properties, providing insightful advisory support along with sensitivity and intelligence. Finely tuned marketing services and a commitment to the business philosophy established by Christie's in 1766 define a brand based on trust, integrity, discretion, and excellence.
